2016 ratings (so far)

Recommended Posts

One of my favorite threads last year was the ratings thread. Seems nobody else is going to start one this year so I'll dive in.

 

I'd say there have been some mighty fine releases already and a few disappointments. Maybe a few more good than poor for the this point in the year than last year.

 

Soul Asylum - Change Of Fortune

Wolfmother - Victorious

Chris Antblad- Age of Concord : On the Radio

Rick Springfield - Rocket Science

Nordic Union - Nordic Union

The Cult - Hidden City

 

I ended up quite enjoying The Cult. Wasn't impressed at first but it grew on me.

 

A few I really need to listen to again as probably not given them a fair go

 

The Temperance Movement - White Bear

Hell in the club - Shadow of the monster.

Last in line - Heavy Crown

Wigelius - Tabula Rasa

The New Roses - Dead Man's Voice

Reckless Love - Invader

 

Just can't listen to Inglorious. I know some love it though. In my bin list. Actually the only thing I've heard this year I'd say is dreadful.

 

Hell in the club may end up in that list as well. I remember being disappointed but should give it another go.

I think Avantasia is the only 2016 release I own, so far. So that's my favourite album of the year.

In summary so far;

 

To good 'uns;

 

Wigelius - Tabula Rasa ; loving this one entirely.
Catalano - Dark Skies ; not massive on the first and last songs, but the rest is really great.
Nordic Union - Nordic Union ; not amazing, but solid. A good strong album.
Grand Slam - A New Dawn ; a few gems and a few fillers. The good songs are nice. It will fade compared to strong releases through the year, but for now it's one of the better I've heard.
Simple Plan - Taking One For The Team ; there is some unlistenable shit on this, and they just don't do the really nice melodic songs anymore, but there's actually some good modern rock on this one. I like the good songs plenty.
Rage Of Angels - The Devil's New Tricks ; just too bloody long, but quite nice despite that.
Reckless Love - InVader ; their weakest album to date but there's still some good stuff on it.
Handful Of Rain - Three Days To Come Back ; don't think I've seen this mentioned here, but it's a good one. Kind of that typical kind of melodic hard rock... but good, solid stuff.
The soon to be forgotten;
Striker - Stand In The Fire ; there are some good strong hooks on this one, but overall I think the bland kind of metal feel will lose me.
Hell In The Club - Shadow Of The Monster ; super disappointing album. Just full of really, really weak songs.
Cavo - Bridges ; shitty new sound - don't know why so many bands do this. I think some of the songs were okay, but it's not a good direction for them.
Faded Red - Pains & Changes ; some surprisingly good hooks on this one. Not great, and it's patchy... but okay in places.
Art Of Dying - Rise Up ; another really disappointing album - more or less nu-metal for the most part.
Adelitas Way - Getaway ; I was very impressed with the first half of this one. Definitely worth checking out if you ever liked these guys... sadly, the end of the album is very weak.
Shakra - High Noon ; bland as batshit.
Axel Rudi Pell - Game Of Sins ; same as all his/their other albums... except maybe even weaker.
Hardreams - Countdown Time ; weak effort from these guys.
Shineth - The Naked Truth ; I was hoping for a lot more from these guys, but this is actually quite weak, and nothing like Miss Behaviour, really.
And the shit not even worthy of any commentary;
Avantasia - Ghost Lights
Arkos - Elapse
Reloaded - Ready To Rock
Midnight Riot - Hungry For Rock (EP)
Guts For Glory - Fairy Tales
Achim Schreiner - Morning Light
Inglorious - Inglorious

I have actually only digested 5 albums so far this year which are worthy of rating - in no order

 

Nordic Union

The rest I have listened to (mainly on Spotify) and disregarded.

 

Tons of great stuff to come though in the next 2-3 months.

49 Epitaph Fire From The Soul
50 Innerwish S/t
I really love Wigelius + Redemption and I'll get them as soon as Wigelius gets the Japanese treatment in late April.
I also enjoy Nordic Union, especially "Go", 3 Reckless Love tracks and 3 Billion Dollar Babies tracks.
And 2 mighty Primal Fear tracks with the trademark Tommy Nauman solos and built in choruses leads. The German bald bodybuilder is in great shape, but all this high altitude training puts in jeopardy his spring classics' campaign and easter egg hunt.
The ep from the Swedes Burning Angel makes a pleasant listening also, but something is missing from it to tickle my hypothalamus.
Still waiting for a Vin-Dit in the forthcoming releases from Treat, The Defiants, Ted Poley, Vega...

Okay..... everybody is submitting lists but not a single rating for any of them. Isn't that the point of this thread???

 

:whistle::yikes::wtf:

 

For me I use these threads to try and make sure I've heard as much of the good stuff as possible. You guys somehow manage to know waaaay more than me what's out there. I know some like rate to the 10th decimal place but good, bad and ugly are enough for me.. Already picked up half a dozen albums to listen to.

Historically i've just loaded up tunes alphabetically to save me the chore of deciding what to listen to. Nowadays there is just too much to get through so starting a few weeks ago i ditched that method and listened to The Cult. However there are some older albums to catch up on too which i'm doing now. Just listening to Helloween at the moment.

haha well yeah but I spun Armageddonize probably more than 5-6 times and Nordic is around 3 times so maybe the score will swing later after few months but I guess both is pretty equal.

 

Have no clue at all about To Wither and Holy Grail, are they prog/power metal band ?

You've only listened to Nordic Union three times? And Armageddonize only twice as much? What??

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • 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.
