Casualties I guess. Have in mind that in order to survive a war you gotta become war... :P 

I can compensate, at least, with the fact that if he crosses the ocean for a gig (finally!!!) new songs  will be better/different than the youtube version.

I hope he never crosses the ocean again. Was pretty average at Firefest. Came across as a shy timid frontman which I found really surprising given his image.

I really like that song. Not one of his best, but still a good song. Hopefully there are stronger tracks on the album though as I would like to hear his guitar work a bit stronger.

Just got around to checking this out...I kinda like the new song.  Yeah, maybe a little Nickelbackish but sounds pretty good to me and is catchy.

Will keep an eye on this.

Yeah, that's poor. Has early potential, but the chorus is shit. 

Just the bare truth of it - these pathetic production jobs just piss me off. They really do. Budget isn't even really an excuse in 2019 when you hear what people can come up with at home on their personal computers... but someone like a Kane Roberts, Vega or White Widdow, where they would have the bigger scale of budgets in this genre... There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for shit production jobs. Unacceptable.

another fairly average song with poor production, on the positive side he did add a guitar solo to this one

Not one of his out and out best, but I do like that one as well.

The ending song (I kinda prefer the remix version(Jap. bonus)-more melodic/up tempo) Wrong with the vitriol in the verse "You're such worthless scum" sums up  my opinion of this. Don't know if it's wrong, but, definitely, it's worthless for me. :(

Heard this album....I was initially a bit on the fence after the first two songs...Thought they were okay and I kinda liked Forever Out Of Place.

Well, after hearing it I feel like those two first songs are clearly the best on the album and the rest is all downhill.  Lots of modern-ish effects ....Not really very melodic, not really very heavy....Not really very AOR.  I'm not sure who this is really geared towards.  I guess mostly it's very Nickelback-ish.

No longer on the fence....easy pass.

I don't much like Nickelback, but that's a very harsh comment about them. Kane Roberts, in 2018, would dearly wish to dish up something comparable to Nickelback. 

However, there is no sugarcoating this. This is a terrible album. I don't know what he was trying to get at, but it fails on every level. It's not going to please a single fan of his, I dare say. Awful songs... :(

Modern has nothing to do with it either - it's 2018. Nothing wrong with modern effects. The problem here is the awful songs which just sound so bad, amplified by the poor production job too. I agree - super easy pass.

listened to this today, as expected there isn't anything resembling the style heard on Saints & Sinners, it has a much more modern sound to it (the inclusion of the cookie monster vocals on 'Beginning of the End' take away from an otherwise ok tune), while overall I was disappointed I still think it's a decent album, just not what I was hoping for from him, my favorites would be 'Above & Beyond', 'Leave This World Behind' and 'Who We Are', while my least favorite would be the final track 'Wrong'

It has moments, but this album is all over the map stylistically, no consistency at all... and WTF with the death vocals? Dafuq?

I will admit, there are a couple of duffers on this one, but overall I really did like it.

One of the only things though I absolutely hate on this though, is that horrible growling that Arch Enemy woman does on the most recent single. She actually has some amazing vocals when you hear her sing clean on the track, but then she does that noise my arse makes when I have got a bit of Bangalore belly after a curry the night before.

    • Actually, I think this is the "upcoming film". I think this is "Ghostbusters III".
    • This topic is very addictive. This was a CD that I found very hard to get back in the day. My mate had a copy and it killed me. I had copied it to cassette, but as we all know, that wasn't good enough. When I finally came across it I felt complete.      
    • In eager anticipation of the new Black Swan album, I thought i'd post two of my favourite McAuley Schenker Group choruses.       
    • Not a movie I've recently watched, but a trailer I've recently seen. With all the backlash of the "Ghostbusters" reboot and the upcoming new film, this one seemed to come out of nowhere. Looks pretty cool BTW.    
    • I saw them open for Iron Maiden features Steve Harris son in the band 
    • good stuff I like Jeff Scott Soto
    • another hard rock festival coming to Glen Burnie MD March 2020 https://sleazeroxx.com/ballroom-blitz-event-to-include-rare-performances-from-dirty-looks-spread-eagle-and-hurricane/ Day One (Friday, March 20, 2020) line-up: Beasto Bianco Dirty Looks feat.

On March 20 and 21 2020, we will be hosting Ballroom Blitz! This event comes to you from La Fontaine Bleue in Glen Burnie, MD. In previous years, we have held numerous events in the area but forget anything you’ve come to know about a BLE event ! BLE is back and stronger than ever! We have 2 main goals here at BLE and those are to create value for our consumers and to provide a big event atmosphere and experience, plain and simple as that. The Ballroom Blitz will be an intimate close up setting that will allow you to be in front of all of the action from our local, regional, and national artists! This event will be 2 FULL days with 20 bands. This is the one you’ve been waiting for !!! Tickets are available at www.bradleeentertainment.com while supplies last. This will be one for the ages.”
    • That 2nd clip reminds me of the Foo Fighters - not their music though, just the video clip.  Not really my kinda music but it's well played and I think will certainly appeal to those who like Joe Bonamassa etc.
    • Excited to hear this!  Nice line-up and cool cover art.  I know some people get a bit over the super group/projects and I get that to an extent, but for me I don't care as long as the music is good.
