I like "Rags To Riches"! Can't wait to hear the full album!

 

P.S. It sure beats this similar titled song:

Wow, that really is a song that could have been on one of the early albums, until the chorus, which is a bit 'less 80's'

When he sings "SHOT to fame" it brings back those warm fuzzies...

Who's looking forward to hearing the new Babylon A.D. album, REVELATION HIGHWAY? We've had the pleasure of listening to it multiple times and it is an ass kicker! If you loved the first two albums, then this will be right up your alley!

Coming Nov. 10th on CD/LP/MP3! http://radi.al/BabylonAD

Sounds very promising.  I'm excited.

I really like this one. Sounds like vintage Babylon A.D.

We have to remember it is 2017 and not 1989. Even if the album is good, it will never be on the same level as any of their albums. I won't fault them for sounding different, I just hope it's tolerable. Atleast I can respect them for sounding as much of their sound as possible. I'd be happy enough with that. But we'll see

Listened to this today, and thought it was a pretty good album.  As you can tell from the samples, it lacks the polished production of their first two and doesn't have any real standouts like So Savage the Heart.   But is solid from first track to last and if you liked their In the Beginning...Persuaders you will probably enjoy this as well.  I believe about half the tracks on Revelation Highway were also on that recording.

So wanted to love this one but it's really average. If I wasn't giving it a bit of slack because I love some of their other material so much I'd probably not have given it the 4 or 5 spins I have.

I skipped through a few songs and liked what I heard.
Some will likely grab me, but most sounded middle of the road.

I picked it up and enjoyed it. Some good tunes! And I'm glad they're still kickin'....always good to see bands from back in the day still putting out good stuff.

Well I'm going to be a bit kinder to them. The album's not going to contend for the top spot of the year, but as good as the first two albums were, neither of them would compete for the top spots in their year of release. Doesn't mean they're not great albums, though.

And this one, in my opinion, isn't too far off those first two. I'd genuinely give them a 10/10 for effort and conviction. They sound fired up, and passionate about creating an authentic sounding Babylon AD album. And this would fit nicely in their discography after 'Nothing Sacred.' 

I'm not wild about the second and third songs (both good, but the least impactful), but the rest are all good, with a few great tunes. 'Tears' and 'Last Time for Love' were two of my favourite from the Persuaders sessions, and they're my favourites here. But 'Crash and burn,' 'Rags to riches,' 'Saturday night,' and the great closer, 'Don't tell me tonight' - you can't really go wrong here.

Don't get me wrong, it's not the album of the year, but it's a seriously good return to form and I'm extremely pleased with the end product. I think it would be unreasonable to expect any better than this. Top effort.

    • he'll prob be better for my pension tho which is all I really care about 
    • Well, it looks like Trump has basically sanctioned these guys to do what they have to do. They may start wearing uniforms. Brown shirts perhaps?   Whatever the outcome of this election, there's gonna be big trouble. I'm genuinely concerned for you guys living over there. Even after that shamozzle of a debate, I still think Trump's the better choice, but either way you're fucked.
    • Hey, c'mon mate. He said "no offense". 
    • My Mother loved "The Nun's Story". I remember watching it when I was very young.    
    • I think Dan can do it.
    • The whole senile thing is 100% fake news...I have seen him in many interviews and he is fine...does he occasionally say the wrong words, yes but so what, the guy has fought stuttering his entire life so I give him a pass on that...I'm pretty sure Biden has not said that Trump is responsible for all the dead from Covid...what he has said is that if Trump had a plan to combat it instead of acting like it didn't exist earlier in the year then there would be less deaths....comparing him to a man that spews lies and nonsense everytime he opens his mouth...he looks pretty good in that comparison...
    • The one who cant remember his name, rambles on about Trump being the reason all the "people are dead", "Covid being 100 years old" and all the slurring and gibberish he's produced, so we all know who were talking about, except I guess Glenn, but thats cool, i am glad it's tabloid fodder where you are, but over here, that senile fuck will do more damage in a year, then anything Trump has ever done, and it's pretty fucking serious.
    • Not sure how to do so, so just don't answer my question, I guess. (Can you delete threads?) 
    • Yeah I've decided I'm not gonna be ok, so I was on my way to deleting it
