Recommended Posts

This second track sounds pretty good to me. Not on the same level as their debut, but I like it.

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

 

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

I really like the verses there but the chorus is a bit disappointing on first listen

Backed. Cool solo.

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...

Like that too,maybe a little slow paced but still has that B.AD style :)

I definitely will check this one out when it comes out. Between this and LA Guns this could be a great ending to the year.

Another pretty good track, I'm glad they chose to record an album that has a similar style musically to their first two releases

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.

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.

I really enjoyed it, minus the anemic drum sound, which is still preventing me from ordering the vinyl.

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.

    • This album isn't their best IMO, but it's still plenty good, and I feel like "more of the same" is actually a good thing for this band.  And/or puts into perspective how lousy Frontiers has been for most of this year. 
    • We might be a little too critical, but at least we're giving them a lot of views as we find all the faults. ;}
    • Love that Cindy Hatch.  ;}
    • The Defiants and Work of Art are fantastic imo. I don't bother rating anymore. 
    • Continuity fail on the video - the outside-the-cart sequences are filmed on a road with nothing in the near background.  The close-up stuff is right next to a mountain or in a tunnel or something, so there's stuff right outside the window.  But they alternate back and forth as if the two shots are occurring at the same time.
    • Nothing wrong with the vocals to me. Always liked Carl Dixon and Cindy Hatch, including his voice.  They played at Sweden Rock Festival once and I loved the set. Dixon also played with April Wine that same festival. 
    • Definitely not for me!
    • Listening today....pretty good.   Couple annoying moments with the Intro and Interlude....both kinda pointless.  The Interlude is more annoying to me as it just breaks up things that are flowing along well.  So it's really a 10 track album.  And for me Blue Virgin Isles is horribly boring...So for me it's really a 9 track album. The rest is all pretty solid though.  It starts out kinda with the heavy side of Degreed and seems to get more commercial as it goes along.   Initially, I think my early standouts are Lost Generation, Summer Of Love and Body Of Work.  Lost Generation is a pretty melodic type rocker, Summer of Love kind of a throwback mild melodic rocker and Body of Work just feels like typical Degreed with poppy and heavy elements blended together. Overall, feels maybe a bit more commercial than their previous efforts and can't say it's overly blowing me away.  At the same time though still good and some worthy additions to their catalog.  
    • The good old Foreigner feeling. Dig it.
