Cool. Love their debut. Can't remember / don't know 'Powerdrive.' But I am looking forward to hear what they come up with.

The debut was good, 'Powerdrive' even better, so looking forward to this after a break of nearly 15 years

Sounds good song wise,quality sounds a bit dull,anyone know if these are brand new tunes or rehashed demos from back in the day? oh,and yes thankfully they changed the artwork :)

The samples sound ok, similar style to the band's earlier material, but my initial thought is that the songs aren't as strong as those prior releases

Ditto. Better than I expected but I'm still not sure.

Not bad but it doesn't change any of the above comments for me,not sure of the strength of the material...and it still sounds quite flat production wise...where is the umph?

I'll probably purchase at some point mainly based on the bands past...I loved the debut

I gave it a listen on Spotify and I agree with your thoughts.  No comparison to their first two releases in terms of the song quality.

Thank goodness for these later posts. The album is dreadful and beyond. Fucking horrible. What is it? A collection of demos from the 70's when they were schoolboys practicing in a garage? Or is this a legit attempt at a new album? Genuine question - what is this collection of shit? 

Nothing at all in common with the first two - just a weak, pissy sound... but despite the sound quality, the songs are so bad and horribly written. I don't understand why they are so awful. What's the reason behind this shit?

    • Only good song on the entire album. Rest is very poor. 
    • Always controversial threads... far more so than the reverse threads. Issa, Care of Night, Magic Dance have all been mentioned and I think all three and excellent albums.  Heartwind, Hardcore Superstar and Grand Design were all okay albums, imo... certainly not anywhere near the bottom of the year.  My list of prolific releases that were awful would look a bit like this; Rox Diamond ; totally agree with above - shocking album Rick Springfield     -    The Snake King ; what an absolute piece of shit. Massive fan of this dood, but this is dreadful. Lee Aaron     -    Diamond Baby Blues ; I quite like some of her stuff, but this was a really bad album. Terrible to see someone trying to be someone they're not rather than just doing their thing.  Black Stone Cherry     -    Family Tree ; not too surprising as they only ever had one kind of okay album... but like Shinedown, they're back to their worst.  Ten     -    Illuminati ; this one's been mentioned, but a once-great band are now officially unlistenable, more or less. Horrid. Panic! At the Disco     -    Pray For The Wicked ; not for most people here, but I don't mind these guys... kind of. This is just dreadful.  Salems Lott     -    Mask of Morality ; these guys are really quite bad. Ugly stuff. Dare Force     -    Callin' Your Name ; no need for this to be released. Rubbish.  Rso     -    Radio Free America ; foolishly, I actually hoped for a bit from this one but it's very poor. I don't understand what makes two rock guitarists think it's a good idea to release drivel that doesn't showcase what they do at all.   Two Of A Kind     -    Rise ; after a ver nice debut, this was a massive step back - didn't like it at all.  Enuff Z'Nuff     -    Diamond Boy ; please just stop. You Me At Six     -    VI ; very, very reliable modern roc band delivered their worst effort yet. Very sad, despite one excellent song. Daughtry     -    Cage To Rattle ; another one who just needs to stop... or find his balls again. One of the two.  Roxanne     -    Radio Silence ; didn't expect the world from this, but it was an interesting concept to see them back. Thoroughly unenjoyable album for me, though, despite a few others getting joy from it.  TNT     -    XIII ; I did actually like that 'We're gonna make it' song - very catchy. But the rest - generally terrible. Karo     -    Heavy Birthday III ; not really sure what this one was or when it was recorded... but it's awful. Breaking Benjamin     -    Ember ; their sound has always been pretty tired, but this was their worst in a long time.  Bulletboys     -    From Out Of The Skies ; absolutely love the 'Best moment of my life' condescending rubbish song on this one... but the rest of the album is awful.  Tommy Paris Band     -    Tommy Paris Band ; really, really should not have released this one. Very bad.  5 Seconds of Summer     -    Youngblood  ; one of my recent favourite bands join the bandwagon in completely abandoning any rock roots they had. Like a few others in this list, there's one absolutely killer song on this ('Talk fast') but the rest is garbage.  Smash Into Pieces     -    Evolver ; been a fan of this band in the past, but they've also strayed a bit and released a very poor collection of songs. Shinedown     -    Attention Attention ; again... they only ever released one okay album so it shouldn't shock me... but this is just loud, annoying noise to me. Airrace     -    Untold Stories ; disappointing collection from an otherwise decent band. Reece     -    Resilient Heart ; it didn't surprise me that this wasn't good, but one album I genuinely couldn't figure out why certain people thought it wasn't bad. Just can't figure this one out because to me it's Reece at his weakest, by-numbers.  Fifth Angel     -    The Third Secret ; disappointing resurrection that shouldn't have happened. Not an awful album, but their discography didn't need it.  Terra Nova     -    Raise Your Voice ; how does an album get released with a production job like this?? Why? Sounds like a shredded ballsack. In typical Terra Nova form, some songs are quite good and others are awful. But it's all just nullified by the terrible, terrible "production" job.  Thirty Seconds to Mars     -    America ; sad to see what's happened to these guys. Another band that have more or less abandoned any rock sound. Again, like others, one killer song on this one very much in their older style... but the rest of the album is poor. Kenny Leckremo     -    Spectra ; don't really understand this one. Really didn't work for me at all. Reach     -    The Great Divine  ; disappointing album after these guys offered some promise. This end of the list is getting better than the top half... but I was disappointed in these guys. Poor album.  Dynazty     -    Firesign ; they seem like a lost cause now. Any hope of them returning to a sound/style where they played interesting songs seems to have passed now. I feel like the last 3 albums have just been one long, average song divided over three discs.   Guild Of Ages     -    Rise ; great band with an exciting return... but my word is this a dud. Not a hook in sight on this one. So disappointing because of what they're capable of. Slash     -    Living The Dream ; I've hated a lot of his solo stuff but still expect something these days. This was his worst album in a few years. Fall Out Boy     -    Mania ; once-decent modern rock band getting worse and worse as time goes on. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus     -    The Awakening ; another once-good modern rock band as above... going downhill fast. Tokyo Blade     -    Unbroken ; their last album was pretty cool but this was very disappointing. Palace     -    Binary Music ; massive fall from grace here. After a very promising debut this was a huge letdown. Jaded Heart     -    Devil's Gift ; these guys are gradually wandering well into Dynazty territory. Heavy is good. Shit songs, however, is not.  And I should leave it there. Plenty more disappointments like Vega and co, but nowhere near the worse albums of the year. 
    • I used to want the product in my hands.
      See the artwork, read the lyrics (hopefully), even go through the credits and look for surprises and quirks.
      No longer though. When some were released as downloads only it removed the ability to have a perfect collection. Same with the cardboard cases (for me at least). I wanted all mine in jewel cases. But the quality of digital downloads is the same.
      For that reason I still collect DVD's as quality of downloads still varies.
      Netflix etc has kind of helped with that, but I often wonder if I'll always have access to everything I want streaming. In the end my DVD collection is doomed.
      In the end everyone's CD collections will be quirky keepsakes.
      Soon releases will be online only.
      This isn't something I am hoping for, but just the way it will happen.
    • Hey mate. You love your music your way. That's what its all about. I'm with CureTheSane. I don't really need to have the physical object in my hands. I'm quite happy with digital. Far more convenient. As mentioned before however, there was a time before the digital (Internet)l revolution when I wasn't happy unless I owned the actual CD. Cassette tape recordings and  CD burns were okay, but I  had to have the disc. Thankfully I've well and truly gotten over that. As long as my files are tagged with cover art, I'm happy and so is my wallet.
    • Would kill for a remastered/vinyl version of "The Early Years".  
    • Thanks for posting this mate. I have to say that I'd never heard of the guy before, but after some checking I've discovered thst he's quite prolific. Heaps of solo stuff and a couple of albums with a band called "Cyanide Scream". I've only just started listening to his back catalog and I like what I'm hearing. This guy rocks! Thanks again for the tip.          
    • Probably not too many Saliva fans here, but this is pretty good so far          
    • For me the keepers were Cross My Heart
      Otehr Than Me
      Burnout To Fade
      Life Is A River

      Tesla are a weird band in that Jeff's voice is so unique and can be really abrasive, or quite delicate at times.
      When I hear a new album, I generally find it pretty easy to know what I'll not like from first listen.
      This posted song is an exception as I initially think it's average, but there is potential after a few listens.
      Some nice melodies and interesting guitar bits in it that are unique enough to get my interest.

      I have no doubt I'll find between 4 and 6 songs that I'll really enjoy on this.
