Has the band seen that album cover? And were they OK with that?

What? What the fuck does that all mean? Is the album just called '4,' or not?

That is all I want to hear. These guys write horrific lyrics and the most banal tunes you can imagine, BUT, it's all very catchy and nice melodic rock. Their biggest letdown (even bigger than their awful lyrics) has been the weak production jobs. Would love to hear an album from there with good production.

 

No mention of Saylor's departure from the band? Or did I miss that one? I wonder what the new vocalist is like...

Actually the album title means FOUR (ΤΕΣΣΕΡΑ = four).Probably because this is their 4th album.

 

 

The differential (dx) that represents an infinitely small change in the variable(x) is usually pronounced as Delta X.

Jeez, no one cares about these guys at all, hey? :lol: I just noticed the "new" vocalist is actually their original vocalist. No mention of that in their Facebook write-up? Seriously? Surely that's newsworthy?

 

Anyway, love the new song. It's extremely typical of them, but it's sounding good. The lyrics are the same as every other song they've written, but jeez it's nice melodic rock, and the production job does sound good too.

"Geoff: No mention of that in their Facebook write-up?"

The return of original vocalist and guitarist has been mentioned and announced with an acoustic video back in APRIL 2015!


The bands bio also mentions about it in both facebook and official website biography.
"April 2015 George and John Bitzios reunite with the band and Wild Rose release the acoustic version of the track “I Want Your Love” as a single.

In the meanwhile Wild Rose start writing and recording new songs for their upcoming fourth album and also complete their “Hit ‘N’ Run Tour” in October with more than 5 successful shows in Hellas taking the applause of the crowds."

Cool, thanks mate. Yeah, I was just looking at the first post in this thread which was lifted from Facebook and didn't see any mention of it there. To be honest, I don't use Facebook at all so I wouldn't have seen anything aside from what's on this site. ;)

 

Good news anyway; looking forward to the album.

I listened to this on Spotify - there are some really good songs but that production is still suffering imo.

 

Not as bad as the previously virtually unlistenable albums, but the vocals are still 'blending' on the choruses which really puts me off and makes for an awkward listening experience - Time After Time being a prime example.....the chorus just sounds really muffled, the vocals, keys and guitar all blending into one another.

 

'Summer Girl' is amazing tho - prob top 10 song so far in 2016. Other picks would be 'Love Games' and 'Waiting For You' (this one actually sounds pretty good production wise)

Good stuff. Extremely typical Wild Rose, which is very good (but not amazing).

I don't know if Retrospect re-stocks stuff anymore at the moment, but the debut was released on Retrospect and was available from there for $10... but I note it's out of stock at the moment. Could be tricky to get that one if they don't have it in stock again.

Thanx Geoff,I contacted em,Sam replied to say it was only a 500 pressing and they were not getting it again,contacted Georg at AOR heaven about Dangerous,again a no go as they no longer hold the rights to the release :( ill just keep my eyes peeled for em,can get Dangerous but £50 is a bit extreme for such a newish release imho

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY btw :)

Haha, thanks. Yeah, to be honest, I really struggled to get any of these albums from these guys. I got lucky with the debut from Retrospect when it was available and cheap, but that's it. :(

 

Anyway, heard this new one today - really nice. It's the same formula as always, but I cannot resist it. The lyrics are dribble, but the music tracks are just brilliant; perfect melodic rock / AOR. The one thing I continually wish for these guys is for a great producer to grab them by the balls and just manhandle them. Really separate those choruses from the verses and make these songs something to really behold, because lord jesus H christ knows the basis is there. I especially loved 'Time after time.'

Jesus knows that Summer Girl + Time After Time are the best tracks from the bunch.

I'm enjoying it,it just sounds what it is,laid back summery AOR, I know what Geoff means about the basis being there and they could offer so much more with a big production,but for me the production is alright on this one,the singer from Grand Design that produced this release didn't he? for me its their best release thus far but I like their entire back catalogue,,,even most of Andy Rocks solo outing :)

    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
