I know right?  To each their own I guess. I love it as much as the previous albums.

Yep, and like I said, I've tried pretty hard to really like it.
Just nothing stands out for me.

In a way, the same as how ACDC can no longer make any music that grabs me.
 

I guess you could say that I see Monumentum as pretty much all filler...

WOW. To not think an album is great is one thing, but to say you feel the whole album(10 to 11) songs to be ALL filler???  Wow again!

OK< I probably shouldn't have said 'filler'

To me they are just generic songs. Nothing spectacular, nothing I haven't heard before, and (for me) lacking that 'it' factor 

When I add them to my best of folder, only 2 or 3 songs will make it.

I know my comment would not be popular, but different strokes....
I can see how others here like it. I don't dislike it per se'

it's not a case of being popular or not. 

nothing released in 2017 was different or new. in 40 odd years of listening to rock music I've heard it all.

it just depends on how well it's done.

Eclipse are nothing new but they do write some mighty anthems and I just struggle to understand how someone who frequents this site doesn't like them.

also is it that different to what came before? not really. just more of the same

Simply. For me it was blander.

Like I said before, I compare to ACDC.
We went from amazing individual songs to recent albums where the music wasn't bad, just nothing that stands out.
Of like all the ACDC type bands around.
I love Dangerous Toys, and I excitedly bought the Broken Teeth album when it came out. Damn disappointing, because it was boring.

Maybe I would have liked Monumentum more if they had more varied material on it.

I get what you're saying about not being that different from past releases, but that stuff to me was hookier and a bit more varied.

I see Million Miles Away as x3 any song on Monumentum.

well I still rate Ready To Rock as their best album.

everything since has been re-hashed albeit very well. 

personally I don't think new album is bland. Most of the songs are just what i like these days.

could do without that silly Eden song tho ;)

haha, Eden is my favorite off the album.

I cannot relate to that song at all. no idea what it's about and the lyrics are shite. one of their worst songs imo

New version, or just an acoustic version? Sounds like the latter to me. 

Either way, best song on the album. Sounds nice acoustic too.

Okay version....I prefer the original though as it was among my favorites on the album.  I do like how they labeled it the "sellout version" lol.

Speaking of this album, just pulled it out earlier this week for a listen and still digging it.  I do hope they add a little more variety on the next album but it's still excellent stuff.

    • I know zero about cricket, unless your speaking of the darts game, that I can bury some ass in, Baseball will be my favorite sport until the day I stop sucking air.
    • Not gonna ruin it with a sneak peek. Was listening to Bia Bang today. Damn, they have some great stuff, want a new album from them. Gonna go and see if they have anything in the works.  
    • haha, yeah, I mixed up Electric Circus with Restless Gypsy. or perhaps I was thinking the LA Guns. Andy Timmons also did a song by that name. I know this as I wrote the lyrics for it.
    • Yep, need a few more listens to the EP though.
    • Van Hagar is my preferred VH. Over here, we really didn't get too much of the earlier stuff. Jump put them on the map, unless you were harcore 'metal' back then. I mean when 1984 came out I was 14 or 15, so I was just moving to hard rock, getting into Kiss and Maiden etc. I mean I Was Made For lovin' You pretty much put Kiss on the map in Australia, and then Shandi solidified them. So VH never toured Australia with Sammy or Dave. Sammy toured solo, and VH toured with Dave in 2013, but we never got to see the real Dave show. In the end, I'm not a huge fan of pre 1982 stuff. There are a few songs... More a fan of early Sammy stuff, post Montrose. The last album they had contained a few songs. Stay Frosty is great.
    • MLB. Don't even get me started on a Cricket vs Baseball/Softball comparison. That's a whole other can of worms.
    • Sorry Terry I was being a smart ass, you kept commenting on how good BTE was live, so I axed you again, truth is, I know your not lying or exaggerating, because I too saw them in 96 with Tonic, Sponge, and Our Lady Peace, BTE were extremely surprising, as they took to the stage and the guitarist opened with a fucking huge solo, I never saw it coming out of that Alpha Gama Ray fraternity looking dude, blew me away, but I gotta say, after that night, I went from having only heard of them, to being a lifelong Sponge fan, they were mind blowing, and their discs do them no justice to their live act.
    • Now I never said that, why you trying to do that bro? LOL, pretty smooth though, Rugby's a brutal and awesome game, I enjoyed the brief time I learned to play it, it's just not an easy sport to stay up on here, unless it's soccer or darts, we don't get a whole lot of international sports coverage, I mean I guess if I cared enough to go looking for it I'd find it, but I don't care, at all, I don't even care about American sports outside of the MLB this year, I refuse to watch them, and just like all the other leftist bullshit going on, they are too digging their own graves inserting the communist rhetoric into sports, and it may be unrepairable, this leftist shit is going to turn out to be a kiss of death to anyone who affiliates themselves with it, mark these words. sorry got off track there, oh fucking well!!
    • Oh I was most definitely lit, I was high as Giraffe pussy bro, there's shit that happened that one of my friends will say "remember when this shit happened" and I will not remember a single moment of it, you know like the years 98 to 2018, those years, so I am not to hard on myself for not remembering shit that I heard, because more times then not, I'll have heard it and completely do not remember, unless it stood out,, so yeah no bi-polar here, just completely fucking bashed for 2 decades, so don't be mean, or axe me to remember anything.
    • They certainly became more appealing to the masses under the Hagar regime but apart they were much better, Standing Hampton anyone? And yes I do prefer Dave over Sam in VH, the songs were more appealing to me, kind of like the Phil Collinless Leppard. As I prefer the Willis era. To each their own.
