James Christian will release his new solo album, "Craving" on April 20, 2018! James is best known for being the frontman for melodic rock stalwarts, House of Lords. “Craving” is his fourth solo album, following “Lay It On Me” (2013), “Meet The Man” (2004), and “Rude Awakening” (1995).

Who's looking forward to this one? First song from the album will be out in a few weeks!

Does this guy ever stop making music? It seems every year he has something new coming out.

One to look out for,but so far for me personally Rude Awakening was the only release that I really liked,probably because it was the most similar to classic HOL .

Loads of good songs on that album. It has aged really well I'm my opinion. 

Looking forward to this new release.

This is fantastic news.  Am a big fan of Christian's work - House of Lords, solo, Voices of Rock, whatever.

Yes.  As much as I love James, his last solo was just meh at best for me.

Ok, I'll admit it. I didn't even want to play it as I just thought it'd be boring, bland and by-the-numbers. Always happy to admit when I'm wrong, though. I like that. Very nice song.

Omg wtf!! I received this yesterday along with excellent Volster disc...this one however is awful imho(slow and plodding comes to mind),so disappointed because I wasn't gonna give it a go til I heard the first track released...wish I hadn't now,"Sidewinder" is apart from the title track the only tune I like...ah well...I did try :(

Ironically, the two songs posted in this thread are all you need to hear from this album, imo. Some really weak stuff on here, and bad lyrics. But I think that 'Jesus Wept' song is pretty nice, and I genuinely like 'Craving.' Two nice songs. The rest? Well, need we discuss the rest? It's a pass.

For me, it's not that bad, probably underrated I guess. Not the one that I'll play regularly though but I think some should give it a try, just don't expect too much of HoL in it

    • If I could change the past my final top 10 woulda looked like this
    • Cool tune - massive s/t album type vibe to it. 
    • Could be. I think they have better distribution in Europe.
    • Trace - Line Of Fire Passion Play - Time Stands Still Mike + The Mechanics - The Singles 1985 - 2014 (2 CD) Frameshift - An Absence Of Empathy Lion´s Share - Dark Hours + 1 Platens - Between Two Horizons No Sweat - Tear Down The Walls (CD-single) Texas - Tired Of Being Alone Acoustic EP
    • Then later by AOR Heaven also I think? 
    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover.
