Picked 'Why Do I?', Maria has one of my fav solos of all time.

 

Loved all Work Of Art releases and always anticipate the next one.

We're still referring to it as "Work of Art," are we?

 

It's been a while since I've listened to it, as I always go for In Progress, I believe "Like No Other" is my favourite. I certainly need to revisit this album.

I dont think this is even worthy of a vote, Why Do I is simply their best song by far, it is possibly one of the best songs in the past 20 years, and I dont think thats an accident, thats what happens when bands write songs like that, songs that are just so good, they can never be topped, and if you mistakenly hear the song before any of their other songs, it just ruins their other songs, cause every song on that debut is strong in one way or another, but opening with Why Do I really makes the album sound weak on 1st listen, if you write a song that you know is obviously going to be one of the best songs ever, close the fucking album with it, like Saints & Sinners did with Slipping Into Darkness, an obvious no brainer as far as singles go, but clearly shows up the rest of the album.

No hes talking about Saints & Sinners Slipping Into Darkness, yeah it was a rip off of 18 and Life, and a pretty damn good one at that, I know in the state I played it in, that song probably sold more albums here then they sold total everywhere else, personally I thought We Belong was the strongest track on the album, but we also played it and it didnt really do that well

One tiny issue with that point - 'Cover me' is a far better song than 'Why do I.'

Prob about as good. Far better? No.

I think my fav would be 'Her Only Lie', but I'll have to go back and re-listen.

I don' know, if I had to choose one from their discography it would be Her Only Lie. Best replay value ever. I'll post it probably in the tearjerkers sections. Love also the control he has on those high notes, particularly the ending one, where he could easily destroy the song, but not him, not that dude!

    • '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/
