Anyone have one particular band that either split up or simply went quiet that you wish would return for one or more albums

 

Mine right now would have to be 'Monty are I ' I have been listening to the two alums they put out a lot recently and they really are just excellent albums and a band that had a really unique but at the same time accessible sound

A few more for me off the top of my head would be Anberlin , The Magnificent and National Product

 

Would like to hear other peoples examples

Did you like Anberlin all the way to the end? I did, but to varying degrees towards the real end, and to be honest I kind of thought they were at the end of the line when they finished up.

 

Since 2000 here are 10 from me -

 

Marcello Vestry

Steelhouse Lane

Blind Date

 

Agreed!! I'd agree with Monty Are I too.

 

But my most of all, top of the world list would read like this;

 

Cauterize

Silly Fools

SR-71

Waltham or USA!USA!USA! (I'd take either)

Blessed By A Broken Heart

Poison (with CC and a big label production job)

Fallbrooke

Faber Drive

A Change Of Pace (with Tory Jasper back on lead vocals)

Just Surrender

The Sunstreak

Frontline

The Latency

No Love Lost or Star City Meltdown

Yeah, I'd have loved one more great album from them, but I'm actually of the opinion they just didn't have it in them anymore. I liked all their work, but it'd be hard to argue that that they never got even close to 'Never take friendship personal' and each album afterwards was almost a small step in their decline. The mellower they got, the less interesting the albums got.

 

In all honesty, I actually truly believe Anberlin will be back one day. I just hope they come back as an uptempo modern rock band and not the vintage lounge music they went out on. Their first two albums are killer, and they had some amazing songs sprinkled throughout the rest of their career too. Great band.

Toby Hitchcock (solo)

 

 

You still fascinate me with this one. You know he is only as good as his song writer, don't you? You know Martensson made his debut album great... don't you? He was just a pawn in a project that he had absolutely no musical input in, whatsoever. ;) Sorry to be blunt mate, but he got extremely lucky... I'm just not sure he is the amazing talent you seem to think he is.

 

I hope the new album is good too, but if Martensson is not on board, odds are it'll be crap.

 

As far as I understand it, Hitchcock's input in that debut album was a voice. Other than that, I am pretty sure 100% of the album's other greatness was on the shoulders of other folk.

Well its most likely to be the staple Frontiers writers - combined with his vocals it should be great.

Have faith man.

I'm sure Frontiers will be looking for the songs to be in the same hard rocking vein as Mercurys Down

At the end of the day, if its shite its shite......can only hope tho.

I am actually of the opinion that new surrender is their best with NTFP coming a close second but i do agree that none of theor others came close to them two , except maybe vital

I really do hope they reform one day and like you said hopefully up tempo stuff,you really could make an amazing top 25 song compilation from their work

Yeah, definitely. Their top 25 songs would be absolutely excellent. Actually, of every single band I listen to, I was going to make a big compilation of Anberlin to bring up to my brothers' place when we next meet as we always struggle like hell to find some music to put on that at least one of us won't hate. I feel like Anberlin is the type of band that can soothe everyone. One of my brothers already actually kinds digs them. I'd thought of Anberlin and also Monty Are I, funnily enough. Certain crowd pleasers.

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • 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 ;-).
