Vain - Rolling with the Punches 2016

Recommended Posts

Oh, holy shit. Refresh my memory, dudes - a lot of these songs are actually old songs that have been re-recorded, aren't they? This song sounds like it was from the 'No Tears For You' / 'Cindy' sessions, before their debut. I absolutely freakin' love that. I must own this album now!! If the rest of the album is like this, this one will proudly sit alongside their first three albums. Not to mention it'll rate extremely high this year.

My distaste for Vain is certainly known as Beat the Bullet a massively over rated steamer.

 

This song is a hundred times superior to anything from BTB but I am skeptic that this is "new" material. Sounds very dated in a good way someone wonders if this is a cleaned up demo?

 

Either way good song, I won't be beating any. Jokers to the record store to buy but it was a fine listen.

I pledged and got the digital download. Sounds like classic Vain to me. I'm also pretty pumped that they are issuing their entire discography on vinyl.

My distaste for Vain is certainly known as I constantly, mistakenly call the debut album Beat the Bullet.

 

Fixed.

If you like No Respect, All Those Strangers and Enough Rope you're gonna love this album. The sound of the download from the band is a little off sounding so I hope the cd sounds better but the songs are there and guitars are great and of course Davy sounds great too.

Yes i too received the digital download and have played this album completely through at least seven times now and i love the entire thing! Classic sounding Vain and just solid catchy songs. And i believe these are all new songs, i think it was the last album Enough Rope that had some old demos that were re-recorded

Not all new songs. There are two older ones I think.

And they're on the road again. Playing three hours from me in a week. Got the kids and girlfriend coming out of hospital that day after a foot operation so looks like I'll miss them again. Autograph on the bill as well.

Chris Damien Doll talked about on mafia Facebook page I think. Passion was definitely one of them.

I'd be absolutely amazed if 'Long Gone' isn't an old song too. Like I said, sounds like it was written in the same week 'Cindy' and 'No Tears For You' were penned, even before 'No Respect.'

That could be the one but as far as Cindy goes that was part of the Roadcrew songs and I don't believe it was a pre-No Respect demo like No Tears for You.

Yeah I dunno, man, 1987 I think it was first recorded. And still one of my favourite tunes.

That one's definitely modern Vain, but a really nice version of modern Vain... taking enough from the past to make it better than what I've heard from them in recent times. I really like it.

Davy is great, such an original vocalist and lyricist. Been holding off listening to anything and hoping it's heavier than the last one.

 

I watched an interview with Davy from back in the day on YouTube and he's a lot different from what I imagined him to be like, and sound like, to what I'd imagined after all these years to listening to his albums.

    • I Don't mind em so ill be checking this one out.
    • That is one terrible album cover 
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Frontiers Music Srl are delighted to announce the release of “Ride To Nowhere”, the third studio album by Inglorious on January 25, 2019. The debut single & video from the album, “Where Are You Now?” is out now. The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD+T-shirt), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl (exclusive to Frontiers webstore), Limited Edition White Vinyl (exclusive to the Inglorious webstore), and Digital formats. Pre-order HERE: http://radi.al/RideToNowhere
      Inglorious Store: http://inglorious.com/shop/
      Frontiers Store: https://www.frontiers.shop/ In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, “Ride To Nowhere”. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound – the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies. “This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” – Nathan James “On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. – Colin Parkinson The recording of “Ride to Nowhere” involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.” From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, “Ride to Nowhere” is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith). “There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” – Andreas Eriksson “We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver   Tracklisting: 1. Where Are You Now?
