Michael Paynter - Weary Stars

 

Been listening to this album for a few days now and I have to say this is superb.

For want of a better description i'll call it modern pop/rock,all I know is I love it.

If you liked Closer and Love The Fall you'll love this album,special mention for the ballad Novocaine,love it.

Also 2 live tracks at the end one of which is great 7.23 long version of MJ's The Way You Make Me Feel.

Highly recommended.

Wow mate, you just made my night! Been tracking this guy as best I can ever since I heard 'Love the fall' way back whenever that was released. I've collected quite a few of his tunes through the years, many (or all) of which I believe are on this album? But either way, absolutely beside myself with joy to see them all available in this delicious package. I thought for sure that after his failed efforts on 'The Voice' that'd be it for him for good. Good to see him persevere. Great talent.

 

For the record, 'Love the fall' has been one of the most played songs in my collection since it's release and I have never even remotely tired of it. Still as great today as the first time I heard it. I can honestly say it's one of my favourite songs of all time. Big call, but true. For the uninitiated:

best track.

 

But overall its a very strong album......slightly irritating in a couple of places.....ie a little shrill and you find yrself reaching for the skip button before the track ends, but there's some good stuff on here no doubt.

 

It is quite light just to warn some folk.....not a huge amount going on guitar wise.

Glad you checked it out, mate. Great to see a thread here too. The guy is so hungry it's kinda sad to see it not work out for him, but hopefully he can warm a few ears with this stuff and reach some kind of audience, which he definitely deserves.

All his stuff is on Spotify by the way (which as i keep reminding people is FREE now)....so there's no excuse not to have a quick listen.

 

Some great hooks.

    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)

Yeah, JACKYL born to play live, and ”30 Coming In Hot” is really ‘hot’ indeed. Very well recorded, mixed & produced, the set is very, very good and entertaining, and you have 3 new songs to enjoy as well.

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
