The Answer - Raise a little hell

This band is highly overrated but I think their debut is very good, although after that it went downhill.

Haven't heard the new album but last one is a bitter disappointment :(

Overrated?? Wow.

 

I saw them live last year and they were brilliant. Which is more than i could say for White Widdow last night ;-)

 

A great live band doesn't always mean they always have great songs, sometimes they're better playing covers :D

Debut is great, I'll say that, but after that you're lucky if you can make a good 12 songs out of 4 albums :)

I think he's saying their originals are so crap that they'd be better off playing covers, in order to actually play some good songs. ;)

 

Anyway, I don't really know this band from a bar of soap. I tried, hated and dismissed them a long time ago.

i knew what he was saying and dismissed it for the bollocks it was.

 

Not heard the newie yet, but I really liked their last album. Had some corking songs imo.

'Some' means probably only 2 or 3 good songs brother? :D

 

I rated 'New Horizon' around 72% and I believe 'Revival' is lower than that, I forgot but maybe around 67%. Haven't heard 'Everyday Demons' for a while but I'm predicting a 75% rating at best, but their debut is above 80% as I remember, I like it and that's the reason I'm still following their albums to see how they progress, and I'll give the new album a spin later.

 

Well this is definitely not for Geoff at all though, so don't you every try it out mate haha but who knows you like couple of songs from their debut. Check this out :

 

"Come Follow Me"

I did listen to their debut and probably their second album too. I guess that's not bad above, but I can see why I'd dismiss that kind of stuff pretty quick. Solid, harmless rock... but I'd forget it the moment the song was done and not wish to try and resurrect that memory with any great urgency.

    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name.    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.
