I've mentioned this many times before... Been a huge DRN fan dating back to 1987 and I've been fortunate enough to see the band live here in Portland, Oregon countless times the past 30 years.

 

Three decades ago I probably wouldn't have liked this new album at all... But now; I ******* love it! So good. Pure musical artistry.

They were excellent in London last week.

NEVER a bad show from these guys. Such great energy at their live gigs. Would have loved to see them with Bon Jovi (when Bon Jovi still rocked) back in the day. They were not on the New Jersey Tour here in the States. I shouldn't complain... I saw a little known band by the name of Skid Row on that tour :)

I think 'B There With You' is the best song on that album, I'm okay with 'Ignition', 'Reunite', and 'Sharp Turn' as well

but sadly for me, other songs there are either average or skippable.

I think about half of it is good with 2 or 3 tracks now embedded in their live set and sound perfect.

 

Champion is my fav. Great chilled song.

Just announced the "Origins" UK tour, which includes album launch party.

Apparently there is a new album announcement coming, but by the name "Origins", I am guessing it is older tracks re-recorded or something like that.

Hopefully not covers.

I saw them here in Portland last month and they hinted at a new project to include some re-recordings of early classics.  They actually sold tickets for fans to attend recording sessions in NYC and Portland... I would loved to have attended, but my schedule didn't allow for it that particular Friday.

Just happy these guys are back together and making music once again.

So apparently the album goes on sale in November, and pre-sale for special bundles etc will be announced this Friday.

    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label. 
    • Eye of the Tiger cover  
    • I don't think Frontiers is involved with this one
    • True they have been known for long delays between releases.  But over a similar 15 year span from '84 -'99 they put out 4 albums vs. 2.  And after Pyromania & Hysteria a delay was understandable following up hugely successful records (with long tours), Rick Allen lost his arm and had to relearn how to play, they scrapped recordings and started over with a different producer, and of course Steve's struggles with depression and alcohol eventually leading to his death while working on Adrenalize
