Remember when Myspace was a thing?

Shit, this is from 2009? No wonder Wig Wam split. These guys had been drifting apart for a while.

I like that tune, and I can picture Jorn Lande all over it.

I should admit, even back when Myspace was relevant, I never knew how to use the site.

I can't get anything to play on myspace, but I'm not liking the vibe surrounding this one. Will wait for the music, though.

Big chorus, but I hate the verses. Not sure this project will be for me at all...

This looks utterly awful...

 

haven't heard a single note...... yet your mind is already made up. :) lmao.

 

I dont need to hear anything when i say that a picture looks awful.

Hes got such an amazing vocal.....why does he keep recording such bollocks?

 

My thoughts exactly.

 

 

Backed. The Allen/Lande project is the only source of good music he's participated in since probably his second solo album.

The only albums i truly like with Jorn are -

 

Millenium debut (his best imo)

Worldchanger (easily his best solo album....by a country mile)

The Battle (debut Allen/Lande is still light years ahead of the other 3)

 

 

 

Oh, and he is f embarrassment live........pointing at everyone in the crowd like Alvin Stardust (RIP).

Wow, you guys are being a bit harsh on poor old Jorn. Personally I only really liked Millennium - Hourglass and most of the first Masterplan.... oh and he stole the show on koztev's nostradameus. He has an amazing voice!

 

Still you can't fault the guy. He puts a lot of material out in a variety of genres. Quality of songs is just not there imo

I loved Millennium, all the Allen/Lande discs and his second solo album. Sadly that's about it. I admit he has a great voice, but there's not much point putting out a million discs if most suck. Like they say in the movies; quality over quantity.

Jorn is simply the one of the greatest. The "Out of every nation" album is one om my favourite records.

 

To me it's a mistake to not understand and appreciate the greatness of Jorn! This man has delivered tons of great music and vocal performances ;)

    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
