Pretty harsh...

 

I'm liking it. I still think there are 3-4 songs I like better than anything on their past couple albums.

 

For me, Sparkle is their worst album followed closely by X. There is very little on either of those albums I find myself wanting to go back to.

 

 

All i can say is... so far... the worst Leppard album yet.

X destroys this. Sparkle wasnt a great album, but i think its much more complete than S/t. S/t just left me scratching my head asking how some of these songs even got on to the album.

Well here's my sexy little summary, for what it's worth 18 years after the fact:

 

01. Let's Go (5:01) - nice old school tune with a modern hook… typical DL for the most part - 7.75
02. Dangerous (3:26) - good traditional DL - 8.5
03. Man Enough (3:54) - not unexpected on a DL album, but still unlikeable. Groove is kinda cool, but the main hook "are you man enough to be my girl" just kills this for me - 6
04. We Belong (5:06) - nice smooth melodic DL ballad - 8
05. Invincible (3:46) - pretty safe, but good solid melodic rocker. Elliot sounds super restrained. - 7.5
06. Sea Of Love (4:04) - some horrible parts but I guess main hook is okay… just - 7
07. Energized (3:23) - this one's just a little too safe and banal - 6.5
08. All Time High (4:19) - great, very typical DL - 8
09. Battle Of My Own (2:42) - I'm sure if the word "plodder" was in the dictionary, this song would be in the description somewhere - 5
10. Broke 'N' Brokenhearted (3:17) - it's a big dumb rocker, but I enjoy the chorus hook - 7.5
11. Forever Young (2:21) - not a huge fan, but it's okay - 7
12. Last Dance (3:09) - again, only just, but it's a decent ballad with a decent chorus melody - 7
13. Wings Of An Angel (4:23) - nice traditional DL melodic rocker - nice - 8.5
14. Blind Faith (5:33) - another gigantic plodder - 5
Total - 71%

They played "Let's Go" during the Ravens/Browns game last night on Monday Night Football.

I like the song and was different getting them all involved on vocals....

 

But these CGI videos they've done for the singles on this album have been pretty terrible IMO.

I agree, and the content of the video bears absolutely no relation to the message of the song.

Agreed, the fan made video makes more sense...

Could have been a much better album overall but sadly I'm still struggling with few fillers such as 'Man Enough', 'Sea of Love', 'Energized', 'Battle of My Own', and 'WIngs of an Angel'

For Christ's sake will a few of you buy the album so Joe Elliot can afford a decent haircut.

    • New song 'Castaway'. Nice!    
    • So I just heard this song, you all probably know of it, or not, I fucking really really like this song, I think it fucking rocks, but rocks in like a crossover Punk-Goth-Raw Hard Rock throwback to the Black Flag - Loose Nut type days, this song is completely raw, unpolished, and just dirty,    
    • I know a few years ago I posted the very first BA song off his very first album, pretty much sarcastically, as it made me want to throw on some daisy dukes, roller skates and bop up and down my street chewing bubble gum and dancing, well I was wrong, it wasn't his first song, this one is, and guess what? it's a million times better then his old first song, I even got the disco remix, this is pure hilarity, I couldn't stop laughing after hearing this, and like his other first song, this has a mind tormentingly catchy beat to it, caution it will lure you in and get you, also, some company out of Canada BA deals with hunts uploads of this song down with intensity, anyone that gets uploaded to YouTube generally is caught by it's bots on the UL, if not that company snags it within a couple days, so I had to upload an artist who has a similar name and his song that also has a similar name, lets see how long we can keep this up there, and why the fuck does that company care if it's out there? that's almost Nancy Drew script material, very fucking odd, anyway, when your done laughing,, lets hear your thoughts.  
    • err just to make this absolutely clear - this is not coming from me.  And that is not a panic stricken website it is the official UK government website with comments directly from our health secretary ffs you do what u like. at 30 odd years old yes your risk is prob negligible. At nearly 51 I would be far greater risk category even being fit for my age. And as for my parents they would prob die sadly. both have had their yearly flu jab so that risk in minor in comparison - for covid there is no treatment or vaccine. Comparing the two is quite frankly bollocks. so I continue to be careful and prudent  but I am not living my life in fear thank you very much and I am not doom mongering 
    • I wouldn't say that I strongly hate it...it just isn't as good as previous nor was non stop rock 'n' roll, I was excited at the time of their releases , that soon faded but they both had a few good tunes, I have to say that I haven't listened to them two in a while but would spin Wamania quite regularly.
