I'd downloaded it from Google Play but now it's even taken the files off my download. 

Wasn't super impressed on first listen. 

Let's hope the album gets better after a few listens.  It seems like someone made it available too soon and then quickly removed.  The official release date is now August 24.  They posted another comment on FB. 

Friends! There is a method to the madness! Our Label "pulled a fast one" on us all and the release last week was just a sneak peek for all you loyal followers of Sapphire Eyes(including us it seems..1f602.png😂1f61c.png😜1f92a.png🤪1f633.png😳1f925.png🤥)!! The "True" Release will start July 6 with the single MY DESIRE on all Digital platforms. After that the pre-order if the album on CD will start and shipment of Physical Media will start 24th of August. We are very proud of the Album and when it finally arrives we can't wait to hear from YOU!!!

They need to pull one of the song, a duet  then as it was painful.  There were some songs with potential as well.

This may not be available outside Europe but here's 'My Desire'. As stated before nothing overwhelming but decent.

Good follow-up album. If you liked the debut, not much to dislike about this one. Production is possibly a bit weaker this time around, but nice melodic rock / AOR songs. 'My desire' is actually probably my favourite song on the album, but there's nothing weak here. Good, consistent stuff.

+1, good sophomore in the style of the debut.

    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label. 
    • Eye of the Tiger cover  
    • I don't think Frontiers is involved with this one
    • True they have been known for long delays between releases.  But over a similar 15 year span from '84 -'99 they put out 4 albums vs. 2.  And after Pyromania & Hysteria a delay was understandable following up hugely successful records (with long tours), Rick Allen lost his arm and had to relearn how to play, they scrapped recordings and started over with a different producer, and of course Steve's struggles with depression and alcohol eventually leading to his death while working on Adrenalize
