I do think I liked that last song Never Surrender the best so far after listening to it properly.

I'm squarely on the fence here if I want to preorder this or not.  It does sound really good, the songs seem very well put together and the singer can definitely sing.  It just doesn't seem to have the same sort of melodic hard rock edge that is where my tastes normally lie and while it sounds good, not sure it'll really blow me away.

That said though, part of me still finds myself kind of liking it if I'm in the right mood.

I agree, the last track was definitely the one that pulled my chain the most......may be a pretty good album when finished.......I'm sitting on 50/50 right now

I think I'm gonna pre-order....Only $10 with free shipping on Amazon so not a bad deal. 

Read a few reviews and all have been pretty positive.  I saw one reviewer say there weren't any ballads and the first single was the most "ballad" song.  And supposed to be a few pretty good melodic rockers outside the songs we've heard.

The vocalist definitely can sing and songs are well written with some obvious good musicianship.  If there was a bit more edge it would be a no brainer.

It's one that could easily go either way for me but I don't see too much coming down the pipe the next month or two so figure I'll give it a try.  Right now my rotation is Shiraz Lane, Maverick, Station and Dangerous Curves so maybe it'll strike a chord being different than those.

Nice.

 

 

Agree!  Might be my favorite yet.

Reviews I've seen on this have all been glowing and the more I hear, the more I like.

I think I'm off the fence now :)

Listened to this and wow, pretty impressed.

Really solid melodic rock album.  I'm not sure they made a great choice putting out In & Out Of Love as the first single as it gave me the perception that this was going to be a very lite AOR album.  Basically that song is the closest thing to a ballad on the whole album.  

It's mostly just full of upbeat melodic melodic rock songs full of hooks, great vocals and some cool riffs/musicianship.  I think an album it sort of reminds me of stylistically is Harem Scarem's United in terms of just being a solid melodic rock album with some 80's vibes but still sounding modern and not copycat or cheesy.  However, there's a couple songs here though that feel like they could be perfect songs for like an 80's movie or something.

Good stuff though and would say the last two songs above (Never Surrender and Stone Cold Lover) are more representative of the album than the first two songs (In & Out Of Love and Gone Too Far).

One listen in and a lot of potential here. Played this and ISSA this morning. This is the one that'll be getting more plays today. 

Another album with a song reminiscing about the 80s. Something of a trend.

Finally got my actual CD and really liking this too....just good, solid throwback melodic rock and pretty catchy stuff.  I quite like Bad City Woman, Stone Cold Lover, What Goes Around and Never Surrender.  

Nothing wrong with any of the other songs either though.  The singer can definitely sing and there is some good musicianship and production going on throughout.   

I'd say this will surely be in my top 10.

It's not a perfect album, but it's okay. Pretty patchy, but I do love 'In And Out Of Love,' 'Never Surrender' and 'Heaven In Your Eyes.' Nice sound and a great voice.

I kind of agree.  

I do like the album a lot and no denying it sounds fantastic.  

For me, it's the kind of album that's enjoyable to listen to but at the same time doesn't really get my blood pumping or get me pounding on the car dashboard.  I still find myself wishing they mixed in a little more edge on a song or two.

I do really like Stone Cold Lover and Never Surrender, with What Comes Around, Too Late and In & Out Of Love not far behind.  And Bad City Woman isn't too bad.  There's a couple songs I find myself sort of glossing over a bit and really don't care much for the 1985 song.

Overall, it's good though and top 10 material.   For me though, it's a long ways behind stuff like Shiraz Lane, W.e.t and Maverick that I'm really digging and gets my juices flowing :headbanger:

Listening to in full at my desk at work. Very enjoyable album. Hints of Rev. Saints here and there for me.

    • A nice tribute to The Midnight and FN-84  
    • work of art, first signal, find me, ?? 
    • Been giving this a little thought....Think my top 5 is pretty strong but the next 5 are all just pretty average releases that probably wouldn't even make my top 10 in some other years. Not sure on the order of my top 3 yet but will be Crazy Lixx, Defiants and Pretty Maids in some order.  Then likely Eclipse and Degreed rounding out the top 5. Next 5 in some order are probably Station, Nitrate, Roxy Blue, Tesla and Saints of Sin.  I still might try to go back and check out some stuff I've missed from this year though so this "next 5" could easily change. 
    • Good stuff! Order CD here (just C$5.00 + postage): https://www.rockwithplayhouse.com/product-page/playhouse-the-rock-n-roll-circus        
    • Hard Rock band from México! Band members.- Lead vocals: Andres Espada Lead Guitar: Jose Mesta Rhythm Gtr: Firio Verastegui Bass: Daniel Mesta Drums: Sergio Mtz facebook      
    • From Frontiers: Waiting For Monday is a new melodic rock band formed by vocalist Rudy Cardenas and guitarist/singer August Zadra. The band hails from Los Angeles and was brought to the attention of Frontiers by Jeff Scott Soto, with the label moving quickly to sign them based on their outstanding talents. Musically, you can expect classic chart topping melodies ala Journey, Styx, and Foreigner, but with a decidedly modern approach. And if you are looking for sunny, meaningless lyrics, then you probably best look elsewhere as the band has stories to tell, and not all of them happy. Originally from Venezuela, Rudy Cardenas is an incredibile vocal talent. His pipes carriedd him to the finals on Season 6 of American Idol and he has been heard on TV and movies ranging from Family Guy to Real Steel. For five years, Rudy was the power alto for the multi-award winning vocal group, M-pact, who was named Vocal Group of the Year at the 2005 L.A. Music Awards. More recently, Rudy was the featured vocalist for the Gold-selling Hungarian rock album by Mr. Zsolt. August Zadra is best known for handling lead guitar and vocal duties in iconic singer Dennis DeYoung's solo band since 2010. Since the age of 15, guitar playing has been a passion that carried August from Fairbanks, Alaska to Hollywood, California, where he attended and graduated from the Guitar Institute of Technology. He has been a regular feature in the Los Angeles music scene for the past 20 years, playing with a variety of bands, and is often sought out as a guitarist/vocalist collaborator for writing and recording projects. Completing the lineup are Joe Travers (drums), Walter Ino (guitar and keyboards), and Eric Baines (bass). Their exciting debut record is now ready to be shared with the world.  Tracklist: 1. Until The Dawn 2. End Of A Dream 3. Shattered Lives 4. Found You Now 5. Right In Front Of You 6. Must Have Been 7. Pick Your Lies 8. Inside Your Head 9. Make It Better 10. Love You Forever 11. One More Round   facebook      
    • New video for 'Promised Land'.    
    • I don't think I have ever heard of Sleeper before. Will check them out. The Cranberries?.. Hmmm no, I don't agree. Pale Waves has that synthwave feel, and a bit of pop rock sound to their songs as opposed to The Cranberries which sound like a mixture of alternative and folk rock imo.
    • Remind a bit of the band Sleeper from years ago and a bit of Cranberries thrown in.not my cuppa tea but I can see where some may like this.
    • Argh! On one hand I love that the forum brings stuff like this to my ears, but on the other hand I hate knowing stuff like this is out there and I'd not ever know about it, if not for this chance thread.  Absolutely love what I'm hearing there. I'm going to check this one out with intense immediacy.
