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
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.
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)
