H.E.A.T - Into The Great Unknown


Recommended Posts

Yeah TDTW is the worst by a fair margin, sadly. I tend to listen to Point of no return and Emergency then turn it off.

 

I definitely don't want to hear anything more from them that sounds anything like A shot at redemption. Hopefully that one is gone from the next tour songlist...

Wow just 2 songs. That's pretty harsh. It's a great album imo with just a couple of weaker moments.

 

Agree tho that Shot is prob their worst song.....it does work live tho which is surprising.

Fuckin A! Best band on the planet right now. Out in January

Yeah, I don't think it's as bad as only two good songs, those two are definitely my favourites on the disc.. I'll listen to We will never die, and Eye for an eye or Enemy in me too sometimes, but the rest is just not worth the listen.

If I was picking random dates it would have been earlier than August mate haha!

 

Single is Time On Our Side - unsure if there is a video to accompany it.

Great info...have heard 5 songs leaked in the Spanish podcast above...that wasn't one I've heard so that's good news.

 

Was wondering also on a video. Seems they usually launch with one...maybe that was part of the hold up.

 

Thanks again for the info.

People here know how into these guys I am....And I really don't like this song at all. I'd even go so far as to say it might be my least favorite song in the Gronwall era. This will have to grow on me quite a bit to get out of automatic skip territory.

 

After hearing the five other songs in that spanish podcast, I know there is way better stuff than this on the album so I'm not getting all down on it. I have to say though that if I hadn't heard those other songs, I'd really be disappointed if this was the first taste of new H.e.a.t I was getting.

 

I think this is a poor choice for a lead song though and will have many people scratching their heads. I would've led with something like Bastard of Society or Blind Leads The Blind.

 

I suppose they're probably trying to get to a different audience with this song....More commercial, pop or whatever. Maybe they think this can get on radio in Sweden or something, I don't know.

 

It's not for me though.

Would be interesting to hear Andrew's thoughts on this song in particular... judging from the comments on youtube (and the likes / dislikes ratio) a lot of people aren't too happy with this song. Having heard 6 of the 10 songs so far, I think I won't be getting the album but rather just the few tracks I like from this one

Would be a lot better without the piano tapping throughout.

I can imagine it with some really heavy guitar chords and being pretty great.

As it stands it's OK, not sure if it will grow on me.

Sometimes it's the songs you don't like on the first listen that you either start to really like, or learn to not hate.

I quite like it but them I'm more open to modern sounding pop rock than others.

 

Would I have preferred another Point of No Return.....of course.

 

But to me I'd happily have this on a balanced album.

I think I saw Andrew comment that he liked this song. Still interested to read his review of the album.

 

Noticed the number of dislike on YT also....I'm one of them. I'm just not sending them a thumbs up with this....Don't want to see them heading in this direction again in the future.

 

I liked the other 5 songs just fine....Great variety and the modern effects didn't bother me. This one though just seems to go nowhere.

 

A few listens now and still think it's my least favorite song I've heard them record since Erik Gronwall came into the band.

Man.... that is NOT what I want to hear from H.E.A.T. at all. Very disappointing song and might just be their worst track as a band.

 

Awful! (Chrous is okayish)

Yeah it's pretty meh unfortunately. I reckon it could be my least favourite song by them now (new appreciation for A shot at redemption here!)

 

I don't mind pop(ish) songs but when you can go listen to pop bands for that, why bother?

 

The lyrics aren't the best either, and those repeated phrases are a bit annoying.

 

I'm *all* about guitars with H.E.A.T though, so the lack of these on this track is my biggest disappointment.

I am one who doesn't understand/like the whole " A band needs to grow/mature/try different things as an artist" crap, but I do understand as an artist not wanting to put out the same thing over and over. But with glowing, GLOWING reviews from an album as ATN(and what a masterpiece that album is), why, WHY would you stray so far from it???!!!

I keep trying to play it and can't get through it. It's awful. :puke:

 

I'm with you. I've tried 4-5 plays and just really don't like it.

 

I'm glad I know there is better stuff on the album. Bastard of Society and Blind Leads The Blind are awesome tunes that I can't crank loud enough. Those are the kinds of songs I want from H.e.a.t.

 

I don't mind variety and liked the "diversion" type songs on the past couple albums but this song just has zero redeeming qualities for me. It starts out okay but when it gets to the chorus I want it to take off and it doesn't. It just plods along. I think a bigger chorus and more guitars could've made it a solid song.

 

Perhaps this song will become more tolerable when I listen to it within the context of the album if there is better stuff sandwiched around it....

 

At this point though, quite easily my least favorite song they've recorded since Erik came into the band.

I love loads of Modern Pop Rock but this really doesn't do much for me , although it could grow on me I guess

Aye, there's a few lads on their Facebook page who like to trot out the "keep moving forward, no steps back" stuff when people post any sort of criticism of extreme changes in sound, plus the fangirls who'll worship anything they do, even if it's just the sound of them farting into a microphone. I always worry these types will push the band into pursuing the wrong direction. ATN was a change, in maturity and song writing, but it was still H.E.A.T at it's essence - they didn't need to leap so radically from it.

    • Press release: UK rock band, CATS IN SPACE, have announced the release of their fourth album ‘Atlantis‘ on November 27th via Harmony Factory / Cargo Records UK. The first single ‘I Fell Out of Love with Rock n’ Roll‘ will be released on October 30th. CATS IN SPACE return with their fourth studio album this Winter with the sensational ‘ATLANTIS’. Nine months in the making, it is set to cause tidal waves around the globe with a sound still ‘very Cats’ but this time the ‘Rock claws’ are out. In a year which has seen much upheaval in the world, the band have also undergone some changes whilst buried deep beneath the ocean recording their new masterpiece. Joining the Cats onboard is none other than the star of Jeff Wayne’s ‘War of the Worlds’, the amazing DAMIEN EDWARDS, whose incredible vocal range has brought another dimension to the unique sounds of the band. After three hugely acclaimed and successful albums, this new line-up will certainly get the fans buzzing in anticipation of the new ‘Aquatic monster’. “Atlantis has been a testing journey for the band in many ways, taking into account some personal events and indeed the state of the business due to Covid-19. But, let us reassure you all, we believe that the new record is going to blow you away. It rocks more and has more symphony, courtesy of our good friend Mike Moran and his orchestra! We are super excited for everyone to hear what we believe is our finest album yet” – Greg Hart. Tracklist: 1. Dive! 2. Spaceship Superstar 3. Revolution 4. Sunday Best 5. Listen To The Radio 6. I Fell Out Of Love With Rock ‘n Roll 7. Marionettes 8. Queen Of The Neverland 9. Magic Lovin’ Feelin’ 10. Can’t Wait For Tomorrow 11. Seasons Change 12. Atlantis

    • New song 'Castaway'. Nice!    
    • So I just heard this song, you all probably know of it, or not, I fucking really really like this song, I think it fucking rocks, but rocks in like a crossover Punk-Goth-Raw Hard Rock throwback to the Black Flag - Loose Nut type days, this song is completely raw, unpolished, and just dirty,    
    • I know a few years ago I posted the very first BA song off his very first album, pretty much sarcastically, as it made me want to throw on some daisy dukes, roller skates and bop up and down my street chewing bubble gum and dancing, well I was wrong, it wasn't his first song, this one is, and guess what? it's a million times better then his old first song, I even got the disco remix, this is pure hilarity, I couldn't stop laughing after hearing this, and like his other first song, this has a mind tormentingly catchy beat to it, caution it will lure you in and get you, also, some company out of Canada BA deals with hunts uploads of this song down with intensity, anyone that gets uploaded to YouTube generally is caught by it's bots on the UL, if not that company snags it within a couple days, so I had to upload an artist who has a similar name and his song that also has a similar name, lets see how long we can keep this up there, and why the fuck does that company care if it's out there? that's almost Nancy Drew script material, very fucking odd, anyway, when your done laughing,, lets hear your thoughts.  
    • err just to make this absolutely clear - this is not coming from me.  And that is not a panic stricken website it is the official UK government website with comments directly from our health secretary ffs you do what u like. at 30 odd years old yes your risk is prob negligible. At nearly 51 I would be far greater risk category even being fit for my age. And as for my parents they would prob die sadly. both have had their yearly flu jab so that risk in minor in comparison - for covid there is no treatment or vaccine. Comparing the two is quite frankly bollocks. so I continue to be careful and prudent  but I am not living my life in fear thank you very much and I am not doom mongering
