I've taken a liking to these guys.

 

I was very late to the party having just gotten Identity Crisis about a month ago. Decided to give it a shot after seeing that Tango Down would be performing at Melodic Rock Fest 4 on the day I'm going in October.

 

Was originally going to basically see H.e.a.t....But now have another band I'm excited about seeing :)

 

Looking forward to the new album to see if they can top Identity Crisis.

IMO, Charming Devil is full of more straight ahead, classic rock songs than Identity Crisis.

 

I personally don't like it as much as Identity Crisis. Songs I really enjoyed from IC were Back To Life, Enlighten Me, Alone, Blame & Corners of My Mind. Those songs struck me as melodic bliss.

 

Something feels a little different on Charming Devil. It's not a huge difference, but it just seems like the songs are more straight ahead, no frills rock. Kinda hard to put my finger on it. There just doesn't seem to be as many hooks or something. The songs just don't seem to pull me in as much. They do sound great though...Just aren't really as memorable for me as some of the Identity Crisis tracks.

 

The title track, Charming Devil, is probably my favorite song and has the most classic melodic rock feel to me.

 

Don't get me wrong though...It sounds great, is well put together and is a quality release. I think anybody that wishes Identity Crisis "rocked" a little more will really enjoy this album. It still has great vocal work by David Reece and is still probably better than most of what is coming out today, especially here in the US.

You took the words right out of my mouth.

Hey John, assuming any feedback is better than no feedback at all, I'll be honest and admit this one sadly doesn't really work for me. It's still a solid 70% album but based on the last album, I was definitely expecting this one to go far into the 80's in terms of scoring.

 

It's definitely a more straight forward rock disc compared to the more "commercial" / melodic 'Identity Crisis,' so that may actually suit some people. For me personally, I was hoping for more of the same as per the last album. 'I'm done loving you' is definitely my favourite song on this disc, but even that doesn't sound as good as the original. Other than that, I think the best tunes are 'Too many roads' and 'Change my world.' The rest... well, to me it's just plain, average hard rock.

 

Anyway, keep doing what you're doing and I hope there's another album from these guys, and selfishly, I hope it's a lot more like 'Identity Crisis' than this one. :)

I get exactly what you're saying and had pretty much the same feel. I thought Identity Crisis was perfect melodic rock...songs like Blame, Alone, Back To Life, Enlighten Me all had a cool, melodic vibe to me and liked the structure and feel of those songs. I don't think the new album has the same sort of vibe.

 

Don't get me wrong though....still like it and the album is well put together and is a classy release. Highlights for me are Charming Devil, Too Many Roads, I'm Done Loving You and Change My World.

 

On a side note, haven't seen it mentioned yet in this thread but saw an announcement recently that lead vocalist David Reece has left the band. So it will be interesting to see who they replace him with and what direction future material takes.

    • Anyone check out their album released earlier this year? Simple Plan     -    Harder Than It Looks 1    .    Wake Me Up (When This Nightmare’s Over) 2    .    Ruin My Life (feat. Deryck Whibley) 3    .    The Antidote 4    .    Million Pictures of You 5    .    Anxiety 6    .    Congratulations 7    .    Iconic 8    .    Best Day of My Life 9    .    Slow Motion 10    .    Two If you liked them before you'll undoubtedly like this one as it's very much Simple Plan. I enjoy.  The clear stand-out for me is this teen anthem that 13 year old Georgia would crank in (one of) her bedroom(s) with tears in her eyes, but it also hits a spot on the other side of the equation. Pretty silly when it's such a teeny written anthem, but not every song that hits a spot needs to be orchestrated by Picasso, I guess. lol.   
    • Just bought it recently. Waiting for it to arrive to give it a good listen.
    • Bit of a creeper this album, but I dig. Just did a quick little read-up on these guys on wikipedia and seems like there's an interesting history. I knew them from way back when then they released two very solid but pretty unspectacular albums in 2005 and 2007, and then went silent and I kind of forgot about them. Seems like a bit happened in those years, including their lead vocalist passing in 2014 (R.I.P). Also, possibly of interest, Don Vedda played in this band from 2019-2020.  This new album has actually been released without a lead vocalist in the band, but a host of guest vocalists on every track. Amazingly, it flows very well. The style is more mellow, and I must say, preferable to me. As noted at the start, the songs are instantly nice, but really grow and they're some of my favourites of the year so far now.  Scary Kids Scaring Kids     -    Out of Light 1    .    Nightmare (feat. Spencer Charnas) 2    .    The Dark (feat. Noah Sebastian) 3    .    To the Unknown (feat. Vaines) 4    .    Until You Come Back (feat. Matt Macdonald) 5    .    Knock It All Down (feat. Lil Lotus) 6    .    New Morning (feat. Cove Reber) 7    .    Omens (feat. Spencer Chamberlain) 8    .    Black Hole (feat. Donovan Melero) 9    .    I Wanna Know (feat. Jesse Cash) 10    .    Escape from My Reality (feat. MOD SUN) 11    .    Endlessly Yours (feat. Tyler Posey, Phem) 12    .    For Atlas (feat. Michael Swank)            
    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this.
