It's like, for instance, Magic Dance being called Maqic Dance. Just stupid. Z is not, nor has it ever been, or will ever be a substitute for an S.

 

 

Most Americans would disagree , but you are totally correct.

Band name spelling a side, this is just ok for for me (needs a little more balls) but there are a few really good songs on it. Aim For The head, Hard To Get, & Set Me Free are the best of the album.

Listened to this album today.

Reminds me of Danger Danger.

Maybe D2 light. Or Cockroach time D2

It was OK, but very syrupy for me.

I'll give a few more listens and see how it goes, but I was disappointed overall, maybe because this thread built it up so much...

Fact. You spell Jeff, J-e-f-f. My name, however, if pronounced G (for goat) e-off. G-eee-off, it is.

 

But it's still better than Cruzh.

Despite being a little underwhelmed initially, this one still got a pretty decent score from me. I guess it just shows that I was expecting quite a lot from this;

 

1 - In N' out of Love - for whatever reason, this song really makes me thinks of Vixen's debut. Not any song specifically but the verses just really sound like they could be lifted off Vixen's debut. The song is okay, but safe as all hell - 7.50
2 - First Cruzh - another solid tune, but again not amazing - don't know why they're singing "first crush" when the song is called "first cruzh," though - 7.50
3 - Aim for the Head - this is more like it - more tunes of this quality would have made this a more delightful experience - 9.00
4 - Anything for You - really, a very tame ballad - kind of painful, lyrically and just too safe and unoriginal to be that good. - 7.00
5 - Survive - a bit restrained, but a good, solid tune - 7.75
6 - Stay - nice, polite balladic number - 7.75
7 - Hard to Get - I hear elements of Loud & Clear's 'Disconnected' album in this tune - it's a nice one - 9.00
8 - You - very appealing song - love the rhythm guitar, the vocal melodies… just a very nice song to these ears - probably my favourite on the album - 9.25
9 - Set Me Free - good upbeat melodic rock - 8.50
10 - Before I Walk Alone - it's a safe one again, but it's hard not to get some pleasure out of it. "Boppy" kind of lyrics, but I just like it despite it's simple-ness - 8.50
11 - Straight from My Heart - there is no doubt in the world that ballads are not this band's strong point. They should definitely have left this as a 10 track album rather than finish on a sour note like this. What does "it may hard to believe" mean anyway? Stupid song. - 5.50
Total - 79%

so this scores 79% but Night Ranger's Midnight Madness scores 78% ??

 

I can only assume that your scored Sister Christian 0/10 ;)

 

Either that or the world has gone mad.

Gave it another go. So there may be some good songs in there but that vocalist just makes me want to switch off. Which I have now done.

 

Geoff. Do you start your ratings at 5? How can 'Anything for you' be anything but 1 or 2?

Haha, no mate, definitely not. I have gone through some particularly harsh ratings with recent modern rock albums with plenty of sub 5 scores. You take the lyrics out of 'Anything for you' and you've got a solid ballad on your hands. The only thing I just hate about it is the lyrics... that's it. Otherwise it'd be a solid ballad.

Haha, not quite the huge NR fan you are, mate. That's a nice, strong album, especially for it's time... but yeah, I'd probably reach for this before that one in the future. Fact is, it's mostly a 75% type album until the trio of 'Passion Play,' 'When You Close Your Eyes, ' and 'Chippin' Away,' which are the only songs on the album I rate higher than 7.5/10.

That is vastly different to I. So different, in fact, I wonder how the difference is only 6%. ;)

Your scoring was obviously pure luck then, that it got near the correct rating ;)

Agree on Anything for You....It had potential but the lyrics are really cliche/cheesy. It's pretty much the same thing I'd say about the last song Straight From The Heart...Although that one is way too long also. They should've either ended with 10 songs or found another up tempo song to end with.

 

On the flip side though, the album has really grown on me and I'd probably rate a few songs higher than I did in an earlier post. I think I'd bump up Survive, You and Before I Walk Alone a bit.

 

I really like this album and the vocals aren't bothering me at all. It's working it's way into my top 5 for 2016.

after reading some of the responses on here I thought maybe this album was gonna have too much pompous cheese for my liking, but i really like it.

I dont' think it's as overdone as say some bai bang stuff (which incidentally I like) , but i can see all the Eurovision comparisons.

definitely a winner to these ears. 'Hard to Get' is fantastic.

    • From Red Voodoo's website: Sacramento’s rock band RED VOODOO is ready to take on the world with their debut album “BRING IT BACK” produced by Tesla’s guitarist, Frank Hannon. Red Voodoo’s sound is inspired by rock bands such as Van Halen, Sammy Hagar, Boston, and Rush. The album embodies the new generation of rock n’ roll and what music is all about. From straight forward rock songs to emotionally driven ballads, each song tells a story. Red Voodoo is Dino McCord (lead vocals), Brandon Paul (lead guitar), Andrew Edwards (bass guitar), and Nick Pesely (drums). “Bring It Back” is out everywhere now! RED VOODOO gained national attention during the summer of 2020 with their #1 Underground radio hit RISE UP, a song and video that expressed their feelings about isolation during the Covid-19 crisis and attracted the ears of their musical hero Sammy Hagar. Dino visited the legend for his birthday bash at Cabo Wabo and was invited to sing onstage with Sammy for a set of acoustic songs.
