It might old news now, but sadly Jules has left the band for personal reasons. The full poop is on their facebook page.

Thanks Jules, you made an old fan proud.

Talking on White Widdow, Crossfire hasnt got much staying power. A few months on and some songs are already wearing a bit thin. There are a few killer tracks of course but my initial rating on this was way too high....prob low to mid 80s is more accurate.

I said at the time I thought all you clowns were crazy immediately calling it their best album and saying it's better than 'Serenade' etc. I'd be interested to see how you all think now the dust is settled.

 

I love this disc; really do, but it's 3rd for me in their discography behind the brilliant 'Serenade' which has held up since it's release, but also their super stellar debut. It's a great discography so far.

 

I said in another thread, but I should give lessons on how to handle new releases in those first few months. Even I am human and make minor misjudgements, but I see it far too often where people climb all over a new release with 90%+ scores and "best in their discography" kind of thoughts, only to see it unravel a few months later. :)

It is the best in their discography. The other 2 are probably low 80s.

 

I rarely get initial ratings wrong but this one was quite late in the year so had to throw a quick rating on it. Its pretty immediate which sucked me in but unfortunately 3 or 4 tracks do wear thin pretty fast.

 

Have to add too that they suck live. Dont bother just enjoy the discs.

But that really ruins a band for me. If they can't perform live, I lose respect.

yep. I have lost a bit of respect for this band, but can still enjoy their discs for what they are.

 

He sounds a million times better on disc than live.

 

I won't go again that is for sure! Twice is enough.

I've seen White Widdow once, in a room as big as my bedroom, and The Deadthings several times (Jules' previous band) and always enjoyed the shows.

I haven't anything from these guys since Banzai! I loved them back in the day and i have Clint from the Love Bomb Baby tattooed on my shoulder from a drunken 18th birthday night :) Is anything beyond the first three albums worth checking out?

'Wazbones' is a lot heavier than their earlier work, but a good disc. 'Bezerk 2.0' is okay and I honestly couldn't even remember having heard 'Thrill Pistol,' but I did see I left a comment on it on the main page. lol. That comment was back in 2007 and I doubt I've heard the album since then.

 

For me, the best thing they've done since 'Wazbones' is the very cool 'Knives' EP from 2013.

Wazbones was the cd that introduced them to me and is still my favorite release from them. I haven't care for much since minus maybe the EP was ok.

Rob Wylde is announced as the new singer of the band.

 

The name sounds familiar... where would I know him from?

That was my first thought, and yeah, he is the bass player. Has he done anything else before this, though?

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
