It is indeed a blind purchase type release and they are a band I genuinely look forward to hearing new material from... but I am hoping for a bit more of an "exciting" release this time around. It's probably because Martensson has spread himself so thin in recent years, but these releases don't carry the weight they should from such a great artist. I hope he sets aside and creates a bunch of killer tunes for his own release.

Dont get this comment....to me Armagedonise was just as good as Bleed & Scream....both great albums.....esp when you factor in the bonus tracks.

 

Are you ready to rock is their best tho imo

Yeah, they are very good albums but there are fillers on them, and there doesn't need to be. The Eclipse albums are good around the 80% mark... but with Martensson's talent there's no reason at all they shouldn't be 90%+ albums. For instance, where are songs the quality of the Hitchcock debut on an Eclipse album?

Hmm... Wrong, but I'm not surprised. It's hard being right.

 

Work of Art > Eclipse > W.E.T.

Well...Eclipse>Wet>Work of art for me.

 

I've just not gotten into Work of Art at all...Don't even really think they belong in the same discussion with Eclipse as they're almost different genres to my ears.

Yep difficult to compare as WoA is defo pure AOR and the others are much rockier.

 

WET would be bottom for me as only 2 albums and the second was a lot weaker.

 

Id say i listen to Eclipse the most.

 

Anyway what has WoA got to do with Eclipse :unsure:

Framework is *such* a great album though, I don't think the other bands could touch it. Personal opinion obviously :)

And Framework isn't even their best album. ;}

Um, W.E.T.'s debut destroys it for me.

Destroy is a big word.....its probably better.....i doubt its better than In Progress though - thats an amazing album.

    • Make Love Like a Man - Def Leppard.   Released as a single from "Adrenalize". I've always hated it. Easily the worst DL song IMO.
    • Thanks mate. I don't know why I was having trouble finding it.
    • what a weird album.  The first 4 tracks are all great and exactly what I want to hear from TMF. then 2 gigantic fillers absolutely kills it imo.  the album in the second half loses momentum - 2 or 3 solid songs at best before a strong end in winner takes all. overall I think the Defiants is much better and teds last solo offering was awesome. I do like those first 4 tracks tho   
    • Seems like they stuck with the same gritty approach to production but it sounds a lot better than the debut. I'm digging this one!
    • I do like the song itself, but I would agree it's such a drastic change in pace that it disrupts the flow quite a bit.  I probably would have swapped that with 'Look Into Me' and placed it near the end of the album.
    • An evolution on the debut in the sound and production...more mature...more Defiants like😂 The title track sure crashes the momentum after the first four awesome tracks.     
    • Ok now that I have listened to it several times, this is my favourite song and it's a beauty. The last track on the album 'Last Train'. You get the vibe of Los Angeles and Sunset in one song. One of the best songs I have heard so far in 2020.    
    • It’s an anti “best of” list.  Songs that were big hits or band’s signature tracks that to be honest are not a favourite of yours...you can’t even add them to a “best of” mix on your phone or on a CDR...and some just down right suck!   Headed For A Heartbreak- Winger (so boring!) Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi (Dead please!) Dude Looks Like A Lady - Aerosmith (awful!)..Rag Doll was even worse Cherry Pie - Warrant (not a bad song but the majority of the rest of the album is way better) Mr. Roboto - Styx (I still can’t forgive Dennis for that mess) More Than Words- Extreme (I like the song but damn that was so not the Extreme sound in general...my dad thought it was the Everly Brothers) When The Children Cry - White Lion (I cry because I can’t take it anymore...too sappy) Pretty Fly For A White Guy - The Offspring (nice sell out boys) Enter Sandman - Metallica (It’s almost become a jingle and was so over played) Silent Lucidity- Queensryche (I saw them live and they ended the concert with this one...talk about not leaving the show on a high)
