New song sounds good - of course I'll buy it, it's Judas Frickin Priest for crying out loud - but I hope it has more staying power than Redeemer of Souls. I couldn't even tell ya the last time I listened to that one. 

BTW I'm still amazed at how much Richie Faulkner looks like KK Downing's Mini-Me. :D I swear, before KK left the band they must've swabbed some of his DNA off a guitar and used it to grow Richie in a lab. :rofl2:

Damn, I just realized I haven't listen to them since Painkiller. But it seems nothing changed. :D

Yupp me too. I am a fan and respect them as heavy metal Gods but I just never sit down and listen to them much.

The other two songs didn't do much for me, but this one is pretty cool. My waning interest in this album just re-spiked.

I was really hoping they would tour to support this album, and I think they will still do but have no intentions of seeing them anymore since the news broke out that Glen Tipton is not going to be touring due to his Parkinson's disease. It will be just Rob Halford and Ian Hill from the line-up that I loved. They should have asked KK Downing to return.

I was knocking the comment lol. 

I might give it a go but I own no JP and consider them one of the most overrated bands in the history of rock.

Not surprising, considering the source. Oh, horrors! I've opened myself up to an opinion of Bruno Mars being a superior singer to Rob Halford; a more talented drummer than Scott Travis, and possessing guitar skills surpassing those of Glenn Tipton, Richie Faulkner & K.K. Downing combined.

    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable.
    • You need to know who you are before trying to figure out who other people are.
    • I can work with Floor,  I like that Northward album she did with Jørn Viggo Lofstad.
    • Live performance  Honestly, I didn't care for this much upon first listen, but with each play I find it ear worming it's way into my skull...  Troy announced he was taking time off from touring last year, so I'm assuming that's still Steve Brown (Wild Mick Brown's brother)  on drums... Drummer Troy Luccketta to take time off the road and to be replaced by Steve Brown at Tesla shows - Sleaze Roxx
