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 know zero about cricket, unless your speaking of the darts game, that I can bury some ass in, Baseball will be my favorite sport until the day I stop sucking air.
    • Not gonna ruin it with a sneak peek. Was listening to Bia Bang today. Damn, they have some great stuff, want a new album from them. Gonna go and see if they have anything in the works.  
    • haha, yeah, I mixed up Electric Circus with Restless Gypsy. or perhaps I was thinking the LA Guns. Andy Timmons also did a song by that name. I know this as I wrote the lyrics for it.
    • Yep, need a few more listens to the EP though.
    • Van Hagar is my preferred VH. Over here, we really didn't get too much of the earlier stuff. Jump put them on the map, unless you were harcore 'metal' back then. I mean when 1984 came out I was 14 or 15, so I was just moving to hard rock, getting into Kiss and Maiden etc. I mean I Was Made For lovin' You pretty much put Kiss on the map in Australia, and then Shandi solidified them. So VH never toured Australia with Sammy or Dave. Sammy toured solo, and VH toured with Dave in 2013, but we never got to see the real Dave show. In the end, I'm not a huge fan of pre 1982 stuff. There are a few songs... More a fan of early Sammy stuff, post Montrose. The last album they had contained a few songs. Stay Frosty is great.
    • MLB. Don't even get me started on a Cricket vs Baseball/Softball comparison. That's a whole other can of worms.
    • Sorry Terry I was being a smart ass, you kept commenting on how good BTE was live, so I axed you again, truth is, I know your not lying or exaggerating, because I too saw them in 96 with Tonic, Sponge, and Our Lady Peace, BTE were extremely surprising, as they took to the stage and the guitarist opened with a fucking huge solo, I never saw it coming out of that Alpha Gama Ray fraternity looking dude, blew me away, but I gotta say, after that night, I went from having only heard of them, to being a lifelong Sponge fan, they were mind blowing, and their discs do them no justice to their live act.
    • Now I never said that, why you trying to do that bro? LOL, pretty smooth though, Rugby's a brutal and awesome game, I enjoyed the brief time I learned to play it, it's just not an easy sport to stay up on here, unless it's soccer or darts, we don't get a whole lot of international sports coverage, I mean I guess if I cared enough to go looking for it I'd find it, but I don't care, at all, I don't even care about American sports outside of the MLB this year, I refuse to watch them, and just like all the other leftist bullshit going on, they are too digging their own graves inserting the communist rhetoric into sports, and it may be unrepairable, this leftist shit is going to turn out to be a kiss of death to anyone who affiliates themselves with it, mark these words. sorry got off track there, oh fucking well!!
    • Oh I was most definitely lit, I was high as Giraffe pussy bro, there's shit that happened that one of my friends will say "remember when this shit happened" and I will not remember a single moment of it, you know like the years 98 to 2018, those years, so I am not to hard on myself for not remembering shit that I heard, because more times then not, I'll have heard it and completely do not remember, unless it stood out,, so yeah no bi-polar here, just completely fucking bashed for 2 decades, so don't be mean, or axe me to remember anything.
    • They certainly became more appealing to the masses under the Hagar regime but apart they were much better, Standing Hampton anyone? And yes I do prefer Dave over Sam in VH, the songs were more appealing to me, kind of like the Phil Collinless Leppard. As I prefer the Willis era. To each their own.
