Really nice tune. I don't follow this guy religiously and he made a few albums I have no time for, but there was some magnificent stuff on the last one. Some real proper melodic rock. I'll check this album out and hope for more of that.

Excellent news. I hope it's a little more easy to get hold of than his last dual album release which I had to get direct from the RM website...got ripped off with postage as I recall. Love all of his releases and won't miss this one for anything.

RM place on Heavy Harmonies has been debated many times before and I think you'll find quite a few fans around here (some fellow haters as well). But there's no doubting he's made some VERY high quality AOR records in his time.

Absolutely NO doubt at all that he should be on the main pages. Some people may not like him, but that is not a reason, not to have him included... we all can't all like everything on here.

This is a quite beautiful album and one of his best in a long time, not that his last few albums have been poor at all. It is very Adult contemporary/ Pop and is very chilled throughout, with only a couple of up beat songs, but the song writing is exquisite and beautifully done. A years highlight so far.

Too soft for me...

 

Not a fan of comments like these usually, but this disc is really, really, realllllly lite.

 

I have only heard it once and I did like it. Had some good well written songs especially towards the front end of the disc, but this is really, really lite stuff. Couldn't even call this one a "soft rock" disc I don't think. Will see how I go, but it sounded okay. I definitely prefer his last effort, but I'll give this time.

My least favourite RM album. Nice songwriting as always, nothing unpleasant about it....but it's just soft and boring. Would much prefer he went back to the my own best enemy style.

RM has always been pretty soft. Does this surprise you??

Absolutely, this latest album is miles softer than any of his other albums. Just check out any of his 80's and 90's albums...sure they have their share of soft ballads etc but there are plenty of great AOR styled rock tracks among them as well.

Some pure (modern) melodic rock from his last album was far from "too soft" for me. I couldn't find videos for 'Part of me' and 'All over me' but those two and these two were my faves off the last disc. Not "heavy" by any means, but definitely all rock songs rather than what the new album consists of:

Buttastically crapalicious. His worst album ever. Zzzzzzzzzz

 

How come ? Is it way too soft ?

 

Utter rubbish!!! Just because it is soft doesn't make it 'Crapalicious' (great descriptive word that one!!!), i'm very surprised by that comment . No, this won't get you racing for the tennis racket and jumping around the room, and it may be way to soft and chilled for some peoples tastes, but to say it's crap, is completely inaccurate.

I have been a huge fan of RM over the years with both Paid Vacation and MOBE in my list of best albums of all time, and his first 3 albums not far down that list as well. Like I said previously RM is generally lumped in the soft rock / adult contemporary box but in fact he has as many upbeat rock songs in his catalogue as he does soft sappy ballads. With that in mind, when there is news of a new RM album, most RM fans expect a rock album with a some ballads and lighter moments mixed in. The latest album doesn't deliver this and I think that is why many fans are disappointed. It is by no means a bad album and in fact it has some really nice songwriting and areangements. However despite this, the new album is in my opinion too soft and uninspiring. It is just boring and I would have to agree with Andrew that it is the worst RM album to date. A real shame but I'm glad Jez and some others are enjoying it.

so Dick is now married to Daisy Fuentes, just recently found that out. Checked out Beautiful Goodbye video on YT, and she's in there with him.

 

For some reason over time I found his vocals to be whiny in some parts and not as pleasant. He writes good hooks though, and Should've Known Better is a nice 80's song. Maybe better if other people sing his songs?

Wowser, intercourse time is a good time for him. Not so much for her, I imagine...

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
