I would have chucked in the Marcello/Vestry album and made it a best of 4 but the Marcello Vestry album pisses all over the other 3 IMHO

I'd arrive at the same result if pressed, but it's probably a threeway dead heat.

I think the Ted Poley is actually the most consistent.

I think the Ted Poley is actually the most consistent.

 

After all is said and done and the dust has cleared, the Ted Poley one has best replay value for me and I agree it's the best of an extremely tight bunch. No duds here. The Defiants is probably number two and TMF would only be third because there's a couple of weaker songs not really found on the other two.

That is probably a correct statement but for me it just lacks the killer songs the other 2 have. You wont see me cryin is the best song but there are 2 or 3 on each the Defiants and TMF better than that.

 

Its close though...prob only 5% separate all 3.

For me, TMF slightly edges out the Defiants as my choice for being the best of these three. I didn't think Beyond the Fade was as strong as Ted's prior solo releases and I find myself skipping a couple tracks when listening to it, so while an enjoyable album, it would get my vote for 3rd place.

It's a really nice song... just a vocal shambles. It's really a mess, vocally, but a good song. I don't understand why it had to be a duet. :(

Two horse race for me between Defiants and TMF. I really didn't care much for Poley's solo album outside of a few songs.

 

Really close call. For me, TMF has some awesome songs. If I had to rank all my favorite songs at one time from the Defiants and TMF, the top 2 or 3 might be TMF songs.

 

However, I voted Defiants just because I think the album might have a little more meat to it top to bottom.

 

Basically a coin flip though. The Defiants was my favorite album last year and TMF is my favorite so far this year. For me, H.e.a.t is potentially the only one that might be able to knock it out of my top spot.

........and it probably will ;)

 

I'm still slightly struggling with TMF production - it isn't bad as such, just a bit weird. Can't put my finger on it, but it sounds a bit 'hollow' ??

 

When I listen to it after Eclipse or Brother Firetribe or One Desire it just sounds a bit shit.

I do agree with you on that production on TMF and I get the same feeling listening to it. I think for me it's mostly with the drums. The album definitely could've benefited from a richer, more full sound.

 

I think also that's partly why I'd put the Defiants ahead of it. That album just sounds fantastic to my ears from a mix perspective.

As expected, it looks like this one's coming down to the wire.

TMF for me.

The only one of the three which I have been able to get in to.

Remember when this place was cool and crowded?

 

Only 12 votes on a poll that's 2 weeks old.

 

In the good old days, this would've been a great poll with lots of votes. :(

    • This band does absolutely ZERO for me.
    • Love it!  Very new-breed DRN... I don't normally dig that type of thing from my favorite 80's bands, but I'm good with it here.  Once again, Daiker is all over this one. Look at Mel slide into everyone of those notes on bass.  Dude is SOOOOOOOOOOOO damn good.  Such a shame he's virtually unknown outside Portland, Oregon (and a those of you in-the-know for this type of music).
    • The guitar-work is great.  I think it's a pretty decent cover. Look, I've been a HUGE fan since 1983, so you'll be hard-pressed to get me to say anything negative about this band.  Those of you who weren't around to see them on the Pyromania and Hysteria tours... God I feel badly for you.  "Top of their game" is a HUGE understatement.  The Beatles of my era for sure.
    • Only point I was looking to make was that I agreed with the prior post above which had mentioned being frustrated that the guys hadn't put out many new releases over the last 15 years and that it may be beneficial to work with a better producer again.  Your follow up post pointed to the time between their earlier releases being similar and I responded to explain how I felt that was different, no worries though, we just see things differently
    • Inglorious indicated a few months ago that they had finished recording the songs for their third album, hinted as being heavier than their prior releases, which should be released via Frontiers in February 2019.  The first song/video from the upcoming album is out now https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/inglorious-say-heavier-third-album-is-done-and-reveal-release-date/    
    • From 84 (the year after Pyromania) until 99 they released 4 studio albums, yes, but from 2000 until 2015 they released 3 studio albums, not 2. Not really that much difference. They also released the covers album, so that was pretty much the same level of output. They still continue to tour regularly and had issues such as Campbells cancer scare and recovery from that, plus the musical landscape is vastly different to that first time scale you mention.   Really not sure what your point is here?      
    • Uh...it doesn't sound bad.  Not as raw as the original and I think that hurts this version. But...if you're gonna do a cover, get the lyrics right.  "It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight?"  Uh... no.
    • Damn good album...Has moved up my list also. I think as of now my top 4 are probably: Kissin' Dynamite Shiraz Lane Treat Maverick I'm not even bothering listing #5 as I'm saving a spot in the top 5 for Midnite City....Almost expecting that it'll slot in at either #1 or #2. And probably a good chance Nordic Union pushes the list also. Another release I'm really digging is Hearts On Fire.  Not officially out yet but have been listening to it for a month or so from doing a premium pre order.  Not quite making my top 5 but probably in the 6-8 range at the moment.
