I must be the only one not feeling it

It's an ok song to me but I hope there's better on the album

I think I might have hyped the album up too much. Maybe I was expecting more Danger Danger. It's by no means a bad song, but I guess it's not what I was anticipating. I'll give it a few more spins.

Just lost interest.

Maybe people are so desperate for anything 80's they are suddenly able to put up with what would have been considered average actually in the 80's

Maybe it's just too AOR for me.

 

I just found it boring, syrupy and generic.

Just what I thought and hoped it would sound like. The chorus isn't instant over the top ear candy, but the pace is great and the production is fucking brilliant...the layers of guitars and keys go straight to one's cock in a flash.

 

I think it sounds like Paul Laine era DD, don't know why it's more 80's....well at least this track.

 

I'm in all the way with this one.

 

I've played three times now and it's fuckin' awesome.

The chorus is a monument of self-controlled power. He could easily throw in a couple of A4-A5s but not Paul.

 

 

Can't wait to find out if I could stick this in my ears.

That's weird, because when I heard this song I thought that this sounded more like "real" Danger Danger than anything Laine recorded with the band (well, except 'Cockroach,' I guess). But this sounds a hell of a lot more like the "real" Danger Danger than 'Four the hard way' or 'Guildersleeves,' imo. Great as both albums were...

That's how I see it too

the way I see it is I'm not comparing it to anything.

 

Just sounds like an excellent melodic rock song to me.

The second listen was exponentially better. Now that I set aside my expectations, and decided not to compare it to Danger Danger, it definitely clicked.

Several even better tunes on the album. Very consistent apart from one track.

SHARE!!! LOL

Funny how I'm more curious about hearing that one track that Andrew says is not good than all the great ones.

I noticed on itunes that the songs are all super long all but two excluding the intro tune are over 5 mins, some nearing 7 mins. Those are prog numbers not melodic rock numbers.

Fixed.

Hopefully these guys will turn it into a Dry County type song tho rather than repeating the chorus 25 times at the end

I really hope it's not a developing trend in music. I couldn't help but notice Ted Poley mention in his video for the new album that they're basically all going to be long songs... that "beyond the fade" as an album title even refers to the end of the song being louder and longer than normal. :(

    • Video is "not available in my country". What's the name of the song?
    • Bro, I fucking post this shit on here, acting all shocked about this brand new band I have discovered and my extreme confusion towards their music, then on a gut feeling I go look in a rack of shit that Ive purchased and never listened to, literally everything in this rack never got taken out of the wrap, and there sits this album, and Moonraker, never even gave them a second worth of listens, I feel like I'm about the biggest phony on here, I really am and do feel like I'm just a fucking idiot, anyways, spinning this one today, then I'll work into the next CD, this really is a good disc, kind looking like this may be the standout track on this one, I get back after Moonracker, prob tomorrow
    • I know I'm really stretching it out on this one, but the other day I caught the end of A video for a song that I absolutely thought was one of the most killer fucking songs of it's genre, I even put it in many of my AOR and rock playlists, though it was clearly Alt + Modern Rock, it never pretends to be anything else, but something about this song, even back in Junior High, set itself apart from all the other garbage of the same genre that was swallowing us in massive droves back around 93 to 95, I thought this song was not only so much different  then the rest of the genre, but it went a step beyond, and was actually a good song, if you could look past the obvious Alt and modern influences, it's a song that gets stuck in my head all the fucking time, a song shrouded in mystery, as I to this day have never figured out what the lyrics are completely about, I love this fucking song, and I got real curious how my metal and AOR brethren felt about and towards this completely fucking catchy and awesome song??? of course the song is Black Metallic. it is if not anything else, an awesome fucking borderline pop song.  
    • Yeah, know what you mean. Really hard to get these tunes out of your system... Guess that's what they call a guilty pleasure... 😉 Have you heard the follow up album "Moonraker"?
    • Nominations aren't announced so what happens is a politician who made the nomination 'leaks' that they did it. Means diddly squat. If any of us were in a position to we could nominate leykis101 and leak it.   
    • I haven't seen either, but I've heard good things 
    • Early part of Romper Stomper, the skins verses the Asians
    • We All DIE Young- Steelheart
    • Ahh, that would be a no!
    • Tesla, "Signs" Joan Jett - "I Love Rock and Roll" Disturbed - "Sounds of Silence" A personal favorite, Jeff Buckley's rendition of "Hallelujah"
