01.Mirror star


03.Take your chances

04.When you're tired enough

05.On the run


07.Gone rockin'

08.Without you

09.Race against time


11.Movin' on


Looking forward to someone kindly posting a link to download this album please kindly.

Yeah nice. I've had this one a while. Think I grabbed it from GloryDaze a few years back. I'll PM you fellas a link I just found. ?


Now if anyone can help me with finding these demos I would really appreciate it:




01 Surprise

02 Bratpack City

03 Movin' On

04 Not Physical

05 Save Your Tears

06 Living My Life


Ok, so, just to add to the excitement I have located another Stallion track on an obscure 1988 Swedish vinyl compilation. The track is called 'Echos of the Night" and you should all see it drop by your inboxes soon enough. ?


Ok enough procrastinating - back to my research proposal ???????????????

Holy shit that is quite harsh. Kind of taken a bit of my enthusiasm to hear this away, but I'll still go in quite eagerly and hope this dude's just wrong. :lol: Thanks mate!

I gave this a listen today and its not bad at all. A bit safe, a bit simplistic and a bit synth heavy in places but it's certainly not the worst i've heard. That review in an earlier post is definitely too harsh.

I gotta be honest and admit it didn't do much for me. I still absolutely love 'Helpless' and think it's a fantastic song. And for that alone I'm happy to have heard the album... but the rest isn't that good at all. The ballad was particularly limp. Glen would love it... right alongside Dalton's gem! ;)

The Stallion songs are highly revered but you could get an idea why it's not been reissued.

Yeah agree with most here...this is some okay / average AOR...nothing to write home about. Still would be keen to hear those six demos though.

    • Ya, when I saw the teaser on fuckbook, I was shocked…such a great surprise.  Hope it’s a great song!
    • Not stellar, but candidly waaaay better than I was expecting.
    • Not going to disagree with this. They've really not changed their sound much across their discography. Either you like it or you don't.
    • New single 'Apocalypse Blues' out tomorrow    
    • Not quite sure about this one. The new (?) songs are good and the re-works of the 'Riot Avenue' songs do sound better than the originals (there is a but coming). 'Sword And Stone' is okay but should have been left in Bonfire's very capable hands. This version pales significantly compared to that one.  Anyway, I guess the idea of the re-recordings is decent here. For the most part the production sounds better, but, there's a problem. And without being a sound guru, I'm not sure exactly what it is. There is what I believe is an issue with the treble area in the final sound, most noticeable in the first song. I don't know the exact way to explain this stuff, but the best way to describe it is that it sounds like a well produced album, at a really low bitrate. Instead of 320kbps it just sounds like it's coming through the speakers at 64kbps... even at a high bitrate. Irritating and something I can't shake, but there's good bits to it too.    
    • I loved this dude's first two post-Idol albums. It's pure pop rock, but I still absolutely love songs such as this; Sadly, for me, everything since those first two albums has been some kind of variation of a train wreck. The Quiet Riot stuff was a mess and this type of metal he's churning out now - I regret to say - is just painful to my ears. Lyrically, he may as well be singing about pasta on train tracks with a side of tree branch for all I can connect with it. Musically I find it really boring, and lyrically it's even worse.  I've actually got the hard copies of first two CDs in my garage but it's too much hassle to go look for them. I can't remember if he wrote or at least co-wrote a lot of the stuff on those two albums, but either way it definitely sounded like the songs at least meant something to him. I'd like to hear that again rather than him trying this metal thing which really doesn't seem to suit him. If he's passionate about it, sure, go for it. I'd love to hear him doing something heavy (and good)... but with songs that actually sound like they mean something to him. This new album sounds like trash to me, I hate to say. He's undoubtedly had a very interesting life post-Idol. I'd much rather hear about that in songs rather than dragons eating reapers in balls of fiery metal or whatever shit is on this album. 
    • Pretty true to their sound so many years into their career. Definitely sounds like HS; no doubt about that. 'Broken' is my favourite song from here... nice tune. Most of the rest is all pretty good to solid too. Admirable effort. 
    • Probably wouldn't have bothered to check this out if I'd not heard an interview with Ace where they spoke about the fact that Steve Brown of Trixter fame co-wrote and produced the album. And it does sound good, production-wise. And the songs are a bit better than I expected. Stand out track is the simple but nice 'Back Into My Arms Again.'  The but? For me, it's the vocals. He is not a good singer... quite a bad one, in fact, and it affects the songs poorly, for me. Which is not to say they're all great otherwise. But some are okay. I wish they'd used Steve for the vocals... 
    • Ok even more clues. Carl's best friend the boy who cried ... and hallowed be thy name.
    • Nope you will kick yourself when it is guessed.
  • Create New...
