After one quick listen, I think "Elegantly Wasted" is my favourite tune, if only for the subject matter. ;}

Good tune.  I almost wish that song had another verse or something though....Feels a little short for some reason even though it's 3 minutes long.  Maybe it's the kind of abrupt ending it has that is making it feel short to me.  Interesting song though.

sounding more like Eclipse than WET to me but that's hardly surprising 

Erik can do no wrong imo. 

Erik can do no different. IMO. It's not terrible but it's just the same as the rest. I'm kind of getting bored of his style. Needs to learn a few new tricks.

Pleased to report that this is more varied.

Probably about half the album is like a more melodic Eclipse, granted.............but that's not a surprise. But there are a few which break it up a bit.

My early favs are not the singles as well which is always nice.

Great job.

I'm not going to try to compare to the previous 2, but looking at what's scheduled to be released this year I'd be amazed if this doesn't make top 5.

This is the album of the year.

Can't see how this will be topped. Best album from start to finish that I have heard for several years.

Some great albums yet to come in 2018.

difficult to know where this would have placed last year. There was some awesome stuff last year. Top 10 for sure, but top 5 not so sure.

Listened to it tonight and I was not disappointed.  My favorite tracks at the moment are "Burn", "Elegantly Wasted" and "Dangerous".  While it might end up in my top 5 this year, I initially feel it is a notch or two below their prior releases, with Rise Up still being my favorite.

I predict that Vega, to be released shortly, will topple it already.

I also think it's quite good. Definitely not too Eclipse-ish. Vocals aside, I actually hear a lot more of JSS in this album than I feel like I've heard in the first two. He sounds like more than just the voice this time. Could be wrong, but it's the vibe I get. 

Good, strong album, and I'm looking forward to more listens.

Really enjoying this,its one of those albums that just goes by and before you know is over,love Elegantly Wasted.

I agree with Geoff though that Vega could topple it,from the 2 tracks they have released so far its heading in the right direction.

Vega is nice, but I don't think they can top this

This gets better every spin. 

Vega will of course be awesome as it always is but for me I suspect NFO will topple it.

But only a madman would predict anything other than top 5. it's great all the way through....a rare thing these days.

Really is great all the way through. 

Quite a collection of music in their three albums....Really cover just about everything in the spectrum between AOR and melodic hard rock and they do it all really well. 

I don't know if it'll be my favorite album this year....I do really, really like Shiraz Lane....but both are basically perfect IMO and really couldn't ask for more.

And still some fantastic stuff coming with Maverick, Station and Midnite City :)

I'm just glad we're getting such awesome new music to listen to :headbanger:

Vega has never quite done it for me. I've always found them too smooth. The latest single has more edge and if the album is in the same vein, it could be a contender.

    • TBH, Bonfire are generally hit and miss with me anyway. Doesn't matter which version.
      Not a band I sit on the edge of my seat waiting for a new release from.
      But at times i really like their stuff, which is why this is a bit of a disappointment in that they are covers. But then I am kind of specific with my covers.
      Was just going through The Treatment and the only cover I kept off Running With The Dogs was No Matter What, others were boring. For me, you either improve on the original - that usually means updating a much older song with a cleaner and heavier sound.
      eg: Radar Love Or you change the original to a different version, while still respecting the original.
      eg: Walk This Way These Bonfire ones for me are the worst kind of covers, they are basically just re-recordings
    • I'll get back to you in a few years with my opinion haha, imma try to get this one soon and be part of the discussion as it happens for a change....
    • In a word.... dreadful. Why couldn't he have done a "Is This The Way That You Want Me" style album??
    • I cannot get enough from it! Pure silky AOR uncork champagne  anthems! They did it again! Of course, I wouldn't mind if they indeed searched for the punchy Crossfire sound. As long as the songs are great. 
    • I really love 2 songs + the styx/kansas worship song. Won't buy it. 
    • Yeah I like it and it is more metal. some more info: Skull Fist - Way of the Road 01. You Belong to Me
      02. No More Running
      03. I Am a Slave
      04. Witch Hunt
      05. Way on the Road
      06. Heart of Rio
      07. Better Late Than Lever
      08. Don't Cross Me
      09. Stay True    
    • Yeah if only he had stuck to something akin to the first two H.E.A.T releases  
    • ones 85%, ones 84%  You get my point yeah. Pointless discussion going on. 
    • I get Steve Perry's reasoning on doing a mellow album, what's Kenny's.?!
    • Yeah for me this is awful,a real waste,he's got a good voice would just have loved a bit more uummphff from the music,it never really gets going...all pretty plodding and samey for me
