I've liked all previous 3 Radioactive albums and I Can't believe it's 10 years since the excellent 'Taken' disc. Will be keeping a close eye on this one

10 years? Really. I don't like any of the previous discs at all to be honest, but for some reason I still plan to give this a go. I think there's a handful of okay songs on the first few discs.

 

'Alibis' sounds pretty good, as do the Robin Beck and Jean Beauvior tracks. Oh, and defo the Jeff Paris one (first one, not the second), and Dan Reed one, and Fergie. The rest sound like crap, but 6 promising tracks is not bad at all.

Can someone please explain to me what the album title is meant to mean? At this point in time it just annoys the shit out of me and I hate it, unless someone can explain it to me.

 

Anyway, this album starts from that track there; track 6. Great song, and after that there are several more. The Jean Beauvoir and Dan Reed songs are both very good too. Didn't like the first 5 songs, and a few of the later ones. You could get a very good five song EP out of this collection, but that's about it.

Look at the album cover. It's "FOUR" with the numeral 4 within the "O", so they decided to refer to it in text as F4UR.

Ha, did not pay attention to that at all. Well, explanation aside, it is still a terrible album title. ;)

It just doesn't hold my attention... although to be honest, nothing really does any more (musically, anyway).

 

I was so over the top in love with the new Toto album the first week I had it, I couldn't get enough.... Haven't spun it even once in more than a ten days, now.

 

I'm a hard sell, and a stick-to-my-guns old-schooler, I guess. I play Outside Edge WAY more than anything else in my collection right now, and when I tire of that one I'll probably go crawling back to Metropolis or the like.

 

Damn I miss the 80's!

I'm like that as well sometimes. Sort of afraid to not be able to find music I like anymore and get tired of the stuff I've been listening to.This release certainly has its moments and Tommy Denander is a great guitarist. Take the solo in ''When The Silence Gets Too Loud'' for example, now that's how it's done!

I kind of envy you guys. Like I said before, I would love to just say, yep, that's it. All the good music is over. I'll get nothing new for the rest of my life and just listen to what I have from now on. It's definitely a lifetime's worth, but unfortunately, imo, there is still plenty of good music being released. :(

I still think the first Radioactive album is the best one, although all have been good, solid discs with this new one being no different. It's a good album, without setting the pulse racing too much and with no any real surprises (not that I was expecting any tbh). The best tracks are definitely The Jean Beauvoir, Jimi Jamison, Dan Reed, Jeff Paris and Robin Beck ones and the short instrumental at the end is a nice finish to the album too. It's well played, Tommy puts in some blinding solo's as usual, and overall it's been put together really well with a good choice of vocalists.

It's not that I don't like "some" new stuff... I certainly do. It's just that no matter how good a new album is (Toto XIV), it doesn't hold my attention like albums did when I was in high school (for instance).

 

I suppose that's more on me and life in general vs. the music itself. Lots more time on my hands to listen to music when I was 16 vs. 46 :)

    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2

    • Sorry I meant Dance With the Dead        
    • As much as I love the Synthwave genre, I'm not very adventurous towards it. I generally allow the folks here to steer me in the right direction. I don't think I've listened to Dance of the Dead. 
    • I've been coming around. The cream of the crop are good. Issue I have is for every Lebrock or Midnight there are 20 shite artists. But yeah, I have been buying a bit of the best artists. For me, the best synthwave release of 2022 is Dance of the Dead. It is like the soundtrack to a John Carpenter film never made. It really rocks in places too.
