There are elements i like - the bridge and solo - but its far too bordering on power metal for me :(

 

Next to Emergency - one of my fav tracks - it sounds like ear wax.

Yeah, I agree. It's not an awful song, but I also hope it's one of the weaker ones. Good moments.

 

I do love this band. Their side project, however, is crap. What's the name? Shineth or something?

  • My Little Pony

Another band whose sound I love until the vocalist opens his mouth.

Well luckily the single turns out to be the worst on the album as the rest of this is great !

Not sure if it beats last woman standing but i definitely think its better than the last one which admittedly was very good itself

Great band that again doesnt get a lot of credit but are much better than half the stuff being churned out by frontiers

I penned my thoughts on this one today. For me, as mentioned below, this is quite a way off their previous albums. The overall score is not that far away, but these guys have had some absolutely killer songs on their albums so far... but there are none on this one. It's all nice, well done melodic rock... but I expected and hoped for better when it comes to this band.

 

1 - Friendly Fire - good, solid opener but lacking a real spark to send it to the next level - 7.50
2 - The Magician - not amazing again, but solid enough - 7.50
3 - Pain And Passion - a bit of a spark in the chorus here, but it's short lived. Otherwise, it's another pretty restrained tune again. Not bad at all, but lacking a real punch, again - 7.50
4 - The War Inside - good ballad, but same as above - it's good, solid but nothing more/less - 7.50
5 - Savage Heart - this is the first time on the album the band displays a bit of flare. I like it. Honestly, it's a long way from the highlights on the last 2 MB albums… it really is… but it's a very fine tune. - 8.75
6 - Brothers Of War - the song is pretty good, until the weak, jumbled chorus. Takes the edge of an otherwise okay tune - 7.00
7 - Never Say Never - another of the better tunes on here, but again, it is not nearly in the same league as highlights from the last couple of albums - 8.25
8 - Ghost Play - some nice synth-heavy music, and a solid tune - just not amazing, again… hard to find a real hook in it, to be honest - 8.00
9 - Night Moves - it's a nice sounding tune throughout, but again, where's the big hook? - 7.75
10 - Walking In Shadows - nice big chorus on this decent sounding ballad… but where a hook is present, the rest of the song kind of lacks the appeal of the last two. Still, it's a nice tune. - 7.75
11 - All Eyes On You - decent hook, okay tune… a bit plodding - 7.50
12 - Save The World - not an awful tune, but it severely lacks a point - skip - 5.00
Total - 75%

This one is less immediate than their previous albums and maybe less bombastic of thats the correct word

But after multiple spins these songs got into my head and i love this album , i likd it better than their last but not as much as last woman standing , it doesnt look like they will ever top that one sadly

Agree, needs spins but I like this one more than Double Agent, though Last Woman Standing is just perfection.

 

So, not at my top this year but good, solid album.

 

(And hell, the album cover is adorable! :wub: )

So this one really has grown on me and will be in my top few of the year now.

Singers voice occasionally scratched at the start and that last song (Save The World) could really have been left off and the album would be better. However the rest of the songs really hit the mark once they've bedded in.

 

I shall be hitting their back catalog.

This is a really good album and they are a really good band !

 

Definitely start with 'Last woman standing , Probably their best album although my favourite songs of theirs would probably be on the new one

It's not bad, but for me it falls well short of their last two efforts. The best songs on this aren't anywhere near on par with the best of those albums. Not even close.

    • 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
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
    • Days Of Wine | Facebook   The self-titled “Days Of Wine” is the upcoming debut album from DAYS OF WINE, consisting of close friends from the Oslo / Norway rock music scene. After years of playing in their respective bands, it was time to join forces to make a high class melodic classic rock album. All are reputed musicians from the major Melodic Hard Rock scene; superb songwriter / keyboardist Leif Johansen (21 Guns, Phenomena), singer Leif Digernes (Westpoint), guitarist Tom Sennerud (Stoneflower), drummer Geir Digernes (Sons Of Angels) and guitarist Jon Johannessen (Stoneflower, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom). Some friends also came by and contributed to some of the songs, i.e. brothers Gregg Bissonette (drums, David Lee Roth) and Matt Bissonette, (bass, David Lee Roth, Joe Satriani), Jon Pettersen (Ammunition), Lars Andrè Kvistum (Conception) keyboards, and Ronni Le Tekro (TNT) dropping some guitar. You can’t go wrong with “Days Of Wine”; this is classic, traditional melodic hard rock / classic rock from the Scandi factory. During Spring 2021, ten songs were recorded for the self-titled debut at Stable Studios, Oslo. The songs are based on the lyrics of Leif Johansen but musically grounded in the Classic Rock genre. Leading the charge is the melodic and “raspy” voice of singer Leif Digernes. To emphasize the classic rock vibe, all backing tracks were recorded “live” in the studio. With such astute and accomplished musicians, it couldn’t have been done in any other way. 01 – Seven Days In Love 02 – Devil`s Bill 03 – Spread Your Wings 04 – Healerman 05 – Like The Others (feat. Markus Klyve) 06 – Never Stop Believing 07 – Angels In Disguise (feat. Gregg & Matt Bissonette) 08 – My Last Kiss 09 – Paint The Sky 10 – Days Of Wine Leif Digernes: Vocals (Westpoint, Bronx, Stuntbandet) Leif Johansen, Bass, keyboards, Vocals (21 Guns, Phenomena, A-ha) Geir Digernes, Drums/Percussion, (Sons Of Angels, Stuntbandet) Tom Sennerud, Guitar, Vocals (Stoneflower, Diezel) Jon Johannessen, Guitar, (Stoneflower, Diezel, Ronni Le Tekro’s Kingdom)
