Every Darkness album has 3-4 great tunes and the rest being meh!

 

This single sounds ok but they've done better.

 

Those song titles seem a bit too goofy for my liking.

Err no it isn't.

 

Those vocals are an abomination

 

Agree 100%

 

Bring back the Stone Gods and ditch the vocal bitch.

What are you all on about? How are these vocals any different from what The Darkness has always been??

 

I've always hated the vocals ... the music is great, but then Justin opens his mouth ... I much prefer Stone Gods.

Yeah, but... complaining that the vocals on a new Darkness album are still the same vocals as on previous albums, as if you somewhow expected them to change, doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Just sayin'...

We know this but we can't help ourselves! :crazy:

And for the record, I don't mind his vocals when he uses them properly. He's just all over the place with it sometimes and it just ruins an otherwise decent tune. Just my opinion of course.

Yep spot on. Quite often his vocals are fine. I actually really like the debut.

 

On this song his vocals are shit.

The album actually has the fewest fillers on a Darkness release, but also doesn't have that 1 or 2 kick ass song like previous efforts. The production is ace and the musicians are at their best.  Rufus Taylor....Queen's Roger Taylor's son sounds great on drums and gives the band a fuller sound. The variety of songs are immense but other than 1 or 2 duds the rest is 'pretty solid'....an intended pun on two of the released tracks.

If you don't like The Darkness then there is nothing for you here. All I will say is, it isn't all bad on here

Had chosen to ignore this release but will check it out now as I liked at least a few songs on every album

Their weakest in my opinion so far was Hot Cakes

I actually disagree with this. I think his "normal" singing voice is fucking terrible too. The guy can't win. He sounds fucking awful no matter how he opens his mouth. Jokes on us, though, because he's been very successful being terrible. 

Anyway, his vocals are horrific, the album is absolutely terrible - it really is. But hold on. I'm going to say a couple of nice things. I actually liked two songs on it. I think that 'Solid gold' song above is actually pretty cool. Pretty shitty (pardon the pun) lyrics, but a cool hard rock tune. Catchy. I also like 'Happiness' it is the cheesiest, most condescending hateful summer song ever... but by jeez it's actually not a half bad tune, lol. 

Anyway, that was it. Two good songs, the rest are absolutely awful (well, 'Rack of glam' is an okay bonus song, but the rest is really, really awful).

    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
    • Another one from this year that hasn't had much fanfare. These guys are always great value.  Very, very solid, Killer Hard Rock!!! I get a Robert Mason "vibe" with the vocals, which is always a good thing.                
    • Link to first single on its own:       I like it.
