I know not everyone liked 2011's 'What If', but I thought it was a terrific disc, so more of the same please.

This is one of those bands that I always thought I should love but never got into for some reason....their 1st 2 releases (S/T & Lean Into It) were okay but nothing great.....I have them on cassette somewhere and haven't bothered to pick up cd versions....to each their own I guess....

I first saw Mr. Big with Hardline in Salem, Oregon sometime around Labor Day 1992 if I remember correctly.

 

I'd never heard either band prior to that evening, and was unaware Schon was in Hardline. Needless to say they both bands kicked MAJOR ass and I've been a fan (of both) ever since.

 

I've fallen off the Mr. Big bandwagon for a while, but I think it's time to get back on...

I thought that cover looked similar to their last, but, after checking, they do not. But wasn't there a band that released an album last year with the same background on their cover? Maybe a Sleaze band?

The thing with Mr Big is that if you made a 10 song compilation of the 10 best songs of every artist you own, I truly believe Mr Big would be right up the top of the pack with an utterly brilliant 10 songs taken from the span of all their releases.

 

But that said, album for album, their discography is very weak. Every album, though, does have at least 2-3 amazing songs. I expect about the same from the new disc. 2-3 great songs and a banquet of fillers. I hope I'm wrong, and regardless of how many weak songs they record, I will still check out the new disc, which says a lot about when they do get it right (rare as it is).

The first three are very strong I guess, after that, maybe half fillers half killers, but the last album I think is quite strong, probably only 2-3 songs I dislike, well if this is like the previous, I'll be a happy man

That is a really bad cover...I

prefer the pig from the last one...

 

Im guessing this will have a couple of great songs and a bunch of forgettable stuff just like the last.

Andrew over at Melodic Rock.com gives a track by track preview. From reading those previews, I'm going to stay away as far as I can from this one. Words like bluesy, slow/mid-tempo, restrained chorus and 70's groove/blues are used to describe the tracks.

 

In other words the new Mr.Big is a ''70's blues based release chalk full of mid-tempo tracks with groove and restraint choruses.``

 

Wow that sounds terrible!

I don't necessarily hate that. We'll see.

Every album is amazing from this band. All of them...I don't understand how there is a few amazing songs and that's it? I'm not listening to clips of this one but I will buy it for sure!

    • 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.

    • 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
