Yeah, I don't really like anything about that at all... well, except the riff. But otherwise it's all very dull. And it doesn't sound one iota like Crystal Ball anymore either.

I heard Secrets years ago and thought it was average.

This song is not bad though.

Maybe I come from a different POV where I don't know much about the band so am open to any music rather than preconceived ideas as to how it should sound.

Haha. Make no mistake of it, friend. I don't like this because I think it's crap... not because it doesn't sound like Crystal Ball used to sound.

 

I really couldn't care less about back stories when it comes to good music or not. Sure, I think it's sad there's no semblance of CB left in the band anymore, but 'Bite Down Hard' is my favourite Britny Fox album, and 'Helluva Time' from Jaded Heart is one of their best too (amongst many other examples). Neither sound like either band's previous output. I just like good music and it's as basic as that. I just think this new stuff is shit.

But everything you said makes no sense because you don't like Belly To Belly....

Illuminati confirmed :)

Secrets was a weaker point... yet it still is much better than this..

Haha, and that proves my point on the other side of the coin. Love Warrant's first 3 albums, and 'Ultraphobic' is cool too, but just because I like those albums it doesn't mean I can force myself to enjoy that unbearable piece of shit that is 'Belly To Belly.' I mean seriously, no one on earth actually likes that album, do they? ;)

I don't think anyone cares anymore, but these guys released a new album called 'Crystallizer.' 

1    .    Crystallizer

2    .    Curtain Call

3    .    Alive for Evermore

4    .    S.O.S.

5    .    Crazy in the Night

6    .    Gentleman's Agreement

7    .    Let Her Go with Love

8    .    Beauty in the Beast

9    .    Death on Holy Ground

10    .    Satisfaction Guaranteed (Bonus Track)

11    .    Exit Wound (Bonus Track)

12    .    Dusty Deadly

13    .    Symphony of Life 

 

Another painfully average-poor album, but they did catch me off-guard with one pretty nice tune on here. It's still pretty poor, but hey, it's the best you'll get from them these days. :(

    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it. 
    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/
