Spread Eagle - Subway To The Stars

I'm going to have to agree with Wardy here. The 29th of Feb minus that very bad break b4 the guitar solo sounds like a King of The Dogs crossed with This Is My World. It would be better if Ray could get up into those glass shattering wails he did in 91 but this is the best thus far and if the remainder of the disc stays like this in lieu of the 1st few pop punk tunes I'd be happy.

Cheers, listened a ton to the entire album released here today and gotta say am super impressed.

The title track out the gates, More Wolf Than Lamb, Dead Air all as great as 29thFeb with that Open To The Public feel, and Cut Through, even when dabbling elsewhere such as with Valentines, all strong stuff in my books and Ray still let's out the occasional scream ;)

I'm not sure fans hoping for a return to the debut will think such but fans of both or just OpenTTPublic should find plenty to enjoy.

Personally loving it \m/

This is simply not the same band without Paul DiBartolo. His songwriting and playing gave them a step up over most bands. This is kind of like having White Lion without Vito. Didn't DiBartolo become a hippy or something?

Yet another song from this glorious album :)

 

 

Do you really like it, or are you taking the urnine? Piss. Taking the piss?

I like this Cut Through song too. Its again very Open To The Public and even Wests voice is more reminiscent of 30 years ago. 

 

Again and sure its no S/T but its better than the first song from this album and even that song is light years better than that new Roxy Blue drivel.

    • Just as a bonus, another song that has a similar theme to All new generation is this. Originally by Big Bang Babies and later covered by Pretty Boy Floyd when Keri was a member. I actually saw PBF play in London during this time, and was right down at the front and shouted for them to play this song and Keri looked straight at me and said "thanks man, that means a lot to me" ha ha  
    • Seize the day is my fave song by them.
    • There's some stuff on that album I do like a lot.....Cold Star Dancer (the song) is probably my 2nd favorite song they've done behind Got It Bad.  I also really like Kiss of Fire, Goodbye and Seize the Day.  I've just struggled getting into some of the other songs on it for some reason though.  I think maybe it was maybe missing some catchy/memorable choruses in spots.  I did like the slightly more modern and heavier, bass-driven direction they started going in on that album with many songs and seems like that's the direction this new album will go based upon the songs so far. Well see.  Really looking forward to this and Kissin' Dynamite in the near future!      
    • New song 'Radio Ga Ga' (Queen cover) from the deluxe edition of 'Fight In Me'.    
    • Ordered this from the band,hopefully here soon.
    • See for me, Cold star dancer is their best work. Everything else is great, but nothing comes close to that album for me.
    • Really looking forward to this album dropping this week!  Have loved the 3 singles so far. I kind of feel like this band sort of peaked for me with Big Red album.  Then Cold Star Dancer, while still pretty decent, was a little bit of a step down from what had come before it and Ethereality was a further step down.  Don't get me wrong, both of those albums still had some good moments but songs and/or weaker production/mix kind of put those albums well behind the first two for me.   Based upon the 3 new songs so far though and the snippet of Puppet Show I've heard on their FB page, it's sounding to me like they might have dialed things in and gotten back on track with this new one.  And this time the production does sound great and is standing out as a positive to me.    Have seen a few reviews and all have been pretty good so far.  Here's one....
