I couldn't stand their latest album. They started as a cool sleaze band and then they became a boring, dusty heavy metal group. Just listen to this song. I don't care about them anymore.

It's not horrible, but they don't know what they want to be, a sleaze glam band or a power metal band. It's like a poor man's Kissin Dynamite with higher pitched vocals and less melody or harmony.

I don't care for this new direction either as it sounds rather average...they should have stuck to their original sound....

True Sounds was a great album. Now and Forever was a good follow up. I'm holding out hope for this one and I'll likely be pre ordering it.

It's out today. I've been listening to the digital download. So far I have to say I like it.

So I started listening to True Sound Of The Underground and I started hoping that I'd get used to the singers voice, but to me he was singing in a range I really don't like.
I perpetuated though and worked through a couple more songs wondering why he didn't vary his voice much.

I think everyone here would know why that is.

A bit of Google helped me see that the female on the cover wasn't a bassist or drummer as I suspected, but the singer.

Knowing this, I listened some more and it still doesn't really sound like a female voice to me.
Every now and then I hear a glimmer of female vocals, but for the most part she sings so 'full on' all the time that it detracts from the music.

Ima passing on this band.

    • Cradle Of Filth - Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder
    • That is great news, one of the most consistent bands over the years
    • Well said, they were one of my favorite bands for the better part of a decade starting with High 'n Dry but unfortunately outside of some tracks on Euphoria and a couple on the self-titled album they've done very little that has interested me over the last 25 years.  Without Mutt pushing them and collaborating on the songwriting they seem to have been adrift without any clear direction
    • You hit the nail on the head for me.  The Yeah album was irritating as heck...Covers of a bunch of songs that I never liked to begin with when they should be doing new music.   Def Leppard has been absolutely terrible at releasing new music...What's there, 2 new albums in the last 15 years or something?  And 2 albums that were average at best with nowhere near the attention to detail or even focus they used to have.  They're always been my favorite band but they need a producer in the worst way if you ask me.  I mean, just put out a melodic rock album and stop screwing around with 70's influences and copycat Queen songs.  They irritate me that they've seemed to run away from the style of music that made them successful. Honestly...If they would just put out a melodic rock album in the vein of what Midnite City is doing, people would eat it up and say how awesome it is.  Instead they continue doing these hodgepodge albums with a few good songs and a bunch of bad experiments and/or covers.....with Greatest Hits albums or live released every other year. Sorry for the rant but they have been a frustrating band that was capable of much more the past 10-15 years IMO.   
    • I have that 1987 album lined up for Thursday at work... what's the next one like? The one from 1989? 
    • I'm very fond of that. Love it. Does this dude play the guitar as well as sing? I love that guitar sound he has in his tunes. Great melodic rock. 
    • Climie Fisher was one of those 80's band I loved back then. Great band. Still dig it. 
    • Really good album. Definite return to form here. This was an excellent band, but they kind of lost their way with the whole female vocal era, with some odd choices. It just wasn't for me, but now that the female vocals are gone, it's just down to proper melodic rock business. Good production and a great ballsy sound. Love the music on here... only slight "thing" is that a few choruses just kind of blend into the verses and you're halfway through before you're all like, "oh, this is actually the chorus." But that's not quite as bad as it sounds. The verses are very strong with nice backing vocal melodies popping up anywhere any time, so it's just a good flow of goodness.  Real nice album.
