Loved their last album. Looking forward to this one.

 

Just appeared on Deezer so giving it a go now. So far doesn't seem as aggressive as the last album but I'll give it a few spins before saying too much.

Can't make my mind up.

 

First few listens I was wondering what's going on. At times a Jane's addition feel to a few songs, not a bad thing but not what this band was about. But then some of them have really started to grow on me.

 

Lucky 13 a more standard sleaze rock song of quality.

 

Then Miss You a catchy ditty.

 

There are good songs in there. I suspect my attention will wander off to something else shortly though. I'd say it's worth a spin or two though.

Anybody else heard it yet?

I have and the Jane's Addiction comparisons are spot on. I want the band that did "Whatever Gets You Off" back. The new sound is a sound I don't dig.

So overall, a weak album ?

 

There are moments when it sounds pretty good but a lot of the songs stray into that Nu Metal/Jane's Addiction territory. I just have never liked that sound. Especially the vocals. Quite a disappointing turn for a very promising band.

I kind of like half the tracks. It's certainly grown on me.

 

Part of the problem is they launch the album with a song that's completely different in sound to their previous stuff. Get further on and there are some tracks more of what i'd expect from them.

I'm only on my first spin but I guess it's disappointing. 'Lucky 13' is the best track here, feels a bit like old MOTLEY, I can also appreciate 'Invicible Summer', but the rest are weak, probably around 5 to 6.

First rating thrown is 62% and I guess I'll keep it that way.

I gave it a 65%. Pretty close again Nightrain!

Yeah can't believe this is the same artist who record 'Whatever Gets You Off' in 2009

because i recall that disc is kinda huge and probably worth around maybe 83%, such a big gap with this one.

Last disc also not bad but worse than 2009 though

    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
