I am not the worlds biggest AOR fan, but when I saw these guys a few years back supporting another band, I was impressed enough to buy both their albums.

Last woman standing was great, so if its a continuation of that, I will be happy.

Yeah, last album was excellent. Did I read there had been a line-up change in this band (a significant one) since that last CD, or are we still dealing with the same guys? I sure hope so as this will definitely be something to look forward to.

The drummer changed not long after the 2nd album came out I believe, and they added a bassist (Roos played bass as well as vocals). Everything else is the same I believe.

I've listened through the whole album yesterday and it seems to be a cracker. Still not a huge fan of the vocals but otherwise not much to complain about. Some really great songs here!

I might even have to go back and re-visit L.W.S which got an impressive 35% rating from yours truly :whistle:

It's a good solid album with some cracking tracks like the near 8 minute 'The Cause Of Liberty', 'Dancing With Danger', 'Magical Feeling' and 'Edge Of The World'. The ballads are good too, although non are as good as the magical 'Til We Meet Again' from the last album. I'm not so keen on the vocals either as they are a bit nasally and one dimensional, but the rest of the band put on a good show and the whole disc sounds terrific..

Cheers to that mate :drink:

I don't recall loving Last Woman Standing. Maybe I should revisit that one. And an eight minute AOR track definitely sounds exciting, so I'll have to check out this one.

Kim, can you please show me how on earth you came up with a 35% for 'Last woman standing?' Holy wowser mate, that's not just a mild dislike of an album, that's pure hatred. I'd be interested to see how on earth you came to that score. I've never rated it yet, but I'd guess for me it'd be very close to 90%. Great disc.

 

As for the new one, it's one of my favourites of the year. The title track was instantly one of my favourite songs of the entire year - what a chorus!! Elsewhere, 'Love reflector,' 'Don't let it end' and 'Dancing with danger' are every bit as good. But there's nothing weak on this, and overall, really great disc. Not as good as 'LWS,' but with the help of a few really killer tracks, it's not far off.

Maybe wrong to call it 'hatred' - more like 'strongly dislike'. :)

Seriously, that album just struck me as bland and I didn't really find any good songs on it except maybe 1 or 2. I listened to it again the other week just to see if my original rating was correct, and while it was maybe a tad better than my original rating indicated the new one is still MILES AHEAD in terms songwriting and production qualities. I rated the new one at 94% and it's definitely one of the strongest AOR CD's of the year, if not at least the most consistent.

 

I am in total agreement with you on the title track - perhaps *the* AOR track of the year and that chorus is just fantastic. It's funny that you mention "Dancing With Danger" and "Don't Let It End" which is two of my other fave tracks. "Midnight Runner" and "Corporation Arms" is also fantastic. But as I said, this is perhaps the most consistent AOR album I've heard all year so really no use picking highlights. I am glad we agree on something for a change, ha ha. :D

 

Have you checked out W.O.A and Sonic Station yet and if so how do you think they compare to this? IMO two other really strong albums even though there are filler. State Of Salazar is another swedish gem but again in terms of consistency I think MB is the better album overall.

    • 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. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg  
    • Credit must be given where it's due, and I do like the effort put into this one. To be frank, I thought the first 5 songs were pretty shit. All the while I was listening, wondering what became of these guys. The most frustrating song of those first few is 'Eternal.' I wrote in my little ratings thing that it almost sounds to me like these guys are trying to sound bad because, otherwise, this is a pretty good song. But it's just done poorly.  Anyway, I want to be fair to these guys and I have to say, that from song 6 the mood in the room seems to lift and they start to give it a fair crack. They drop the mopey post-grunge blandom and have a crack at some decent melodic type of rock. Spoiler alert - I don't actually think there's a keeper track on the album, but holy shit they get close.  'Temples,' 'Alive,' 'Heaven Knows' and 'Someone's watching over me' are all, four in a row, good, strong songs. And then 'Love Is The Only Place' hits and I was taken aback. Unfortunately, they're not the band they used to be and I am 100% convinced they couldn't hit the heights of the debut even if they did everything possible to try... but goodness do they get close with this track. A bit of polish and finesse and this one wouldn't be a bad stab at what they did so well on their debut.  Sadly, the album's worst song follows in 'The Undertaker' - what a piece of shit, lol. Really grates me because this is the discussion point I've had with christians that aggravates me the most, and it's in a song, so naturally I hate it. And then 'Afterlife' isn't amazing, but pretty decent. Before the album finishes on a high, with one of the best songs on the album with a nice hook - 'Strange New World.' So overall, like I say, credit where it's due. After the first few songs I was close to closing up shop and calling this a pass, but thankfully, they took me on a ride and it was pretty cool. They're a dim shadow of the band they used to be, to be totally fair, but I like that they showed a bit of fight with this album. Better than expected.
