I've never been a huge fan of Bonfire despite some brilliant songs. Too patchy overall. But I have to say when I compare that song to everything else I've been hearing on these forums lately it stacks up ok if not better than a lot of stuff. Man is there some pure shit coming out lately. I wouldn't put this song in that pile, IMO.

Can't agree with the Bonfire patchy comment but I will say, releases today are mostly ridiculous and it's why I just play the old stuff. Can't miss there and I have a ton to choose from ;)

I think everything from the late 90's onwards has been patchy. Not terrible by any means, and some excellent songs among them, but plenty of dud songs in there. Still a band I will always check out but for me, the first two albums are all I really need from this mob.

I assume you mean albums two and three? 'Don't touch the light' is hardly a world beater. ;)

Yeah, you know what I mean ? Fire Works and Point Blank. Knock Out isn't bad either.

Well, whaddya know? This one actually isn't half bad. I'd probably go as far as to say it's the best album with the Bonfire name on the front cover that I've heard in a long time. Musically, they sound much better than probably as far back as 1991, in all seriousness. They sound good. At times, more like fellow German band Wicked Sensation, but very good.

 

And it must be said; as much as Lessman needs to be in this band for it to be a genuine version of Bonfire, his lyrics had gone to hell for long over a decade now, and lyrically, this is the best Bonfire album since 1991 too. Which is not to say it's great - it is very basic - but it's just better than what I've come to expect from Bonfire.

 

Anyway, it still doesn't sound anything like Bonfire, but it's a good solid album and it must be said, the new versions of 'Sweet Obsession' and 'American Nights' are both excellent. Only really poor decision on this album is the horrid cover of the horrid 'With a little help from my friends' at the end of it all.

You know what the bitch of this is...musically they finally sound like Bonfire again. Having said that after barely making it through the album, the vocals are absolutely terrible. I mean fucking terrible...

 

Sad thing is this would have been potentially a great comeback album if they had Claus singing.

:lol: Not a David Reece fan, then? I'd definitely have preferred Lessman on these songs, but Reece just sounds like, well, Reece. He's always the same. Love him or hate him. ;)

No, not at all. I semi-liked the first BC cd back in '92 but that's about it. Listen to track three....the music, drums, everything is so awesome...and then he sings. I swear I am not making this up but this is as bad as I have ever heard.

Haha. Yeah mate, I have to admit I'm not the greatest fan of his voice either. I guess it's just one of those voices I've known for that long that I've just kind of accepted that it is what it is and that's just how it is. :lol: And by christ I do love the first BC album...

I think the vocals are good. I've always liked David Reece. I just think that song works better as an instrumental. Nice guitar work.

There are a few good tracks on this, but also some real average stuff. Bit of a mixed bag.

 

Not sure I'll pick this up.............

 

I do love the song 'Remember' though.......that is a killer track.

I agree Glen. "Remember" is a great song, and then it drops big time for me in quality.

'Can't break away' would be my fave of the bunch (aside from the two very good remakes).

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
