The Toi - Water Into Wine

Recommended Posts

I don't create many new album threads these days due to the Stefan factor, which is a good thing. But one album that either people have heard and hated, or one that's slipped through the cracks is this one. It's not the best album you ever heard or anything, but definitely worth a mention. They kind of remind me a little bit of last year's surprise package; Maverick.

Hard to find anything on youtube, and sadly the only video appears to be for the weakest song on the album, lol. Not a great advertisement for the band, but here's a taste. But trust me, they're much better than this.
Well there is this one too, that's quite a bit better:
If you can find 'I'm still crying' somewhere on the web, check that one out. My favourite song on the album and about my favourite of the year so far. Love it.

Saw the maverick comparison and had to listen straight away, sadly though I don't really get the same feeling, sounds okay but nowhere near maverick for me

I actually like both those tracks, dig the vibe. Off to check out the rest of the album....

 

Me too. Surprised to agree with Geoff again, especially after huge differences of opinion on WWIII, Faster Pussycat and Armored Saint, but I think he's really onto something here. Very impressed.

I've ordered the album directly from the band via facebook for 10 quid, looks like it's the only way to get a physical copy

 

Yep, same here. Hopefully it's all up to the standard of the songs above.

All better than the first one, imo, and mostly better than the second one too. ;) In my opinion... SHame there's not more on youtube for me to post.

They sound pretty good. I like the guitar solos, very melodic without trying to be too flash and ruining the whole thing!

Been listening to this quite a bit for the last couple days, what stands out the most here are the HOOKS

 

It's not the best production and the verses are ok but when the pre-choruses kick in... man!! Just pure melodic heaven really glad I got this one

Yep, that's what got me about them too. They are very unassuming. It's not the flashiest or, as you say, most immaculately produced and polished product ever, but they just get by on good catchy songs with strong hooks. Which is what's important. They're good.

 

Another band they kind of remind me of in their prime is Lynn Allen. Kind of no frills; just good hooks.

Good stuff....the singer has a slight similarity to the singer from Disturbance. Will definitely check it out.

No ones mentioned it yet...but whats going on with that album cover?? Very odd.

 

Originally I thought it was the cover shot for the new Donnie Darko DVD.

Listening to this now and it's really good. Consistently strong songs, with a couple of really good ones standing out slightly so far in the shape of "The One" and "Staring At The Sun". They barely put a foot wrong. Not sure how this has stayed under the radar for so long while some releases that are just dross receive plenty of attention.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
