Lebrock - Real Thing [EP] 2018

Recommended Posts

Well boys and girls the day has finally arrived and the new LEBROCK ep "Real Thing" is released and what an ep it is. Sean and Michael have done it again and have given us 5 AWESOME!!! tracks all with vocals of pure 80's inspired AOR. Yes these guys have been at the forefront of the NewRetroSynth movement but to my ears this is just pure 80's AOR and could easily fit in the AOR thread above but I've kept them here as this is were the discussion started. These guys have this genre nailed, and this is the best thing I've heard and the best £3.95 i have spent this year...

AWESOME !!! go check it out NOW!!!

I want to kill everyone who says the word "literally" these days and even saying it in context just makes me angry now because it is so frightfully abused... but I couldn't stop playing it this morning. Played it four times in a row. Actually, there's no need to say literally, so I'll leave it alone. But this is heavenly. 

It's awesomeness is probably magnified because so far there's absolutely nothing else at all to listen to from 2018, but even if there was something else decent, it's just magnificent. All five songs are superb and I am completely in love with it immediately. Five of my favourite songs of 2018, no doubt.

This EP is absolutely fantastic! LeBrock nailed it. Every track is amazing. Easily the best I've heard this year.

That was figuratively pretty average for me.

I'm literally not in to that style of music.

Hypothetically speaking there was too much syrupy synth for me...

I think we've established, since your return, that you still have very bad taste in music, haven't we? ;) If not before, this thread has confirmed it. :)

Not the thread to ask, but how are you going anyway? You been in some bands and stuff? Recorded anything n' stuff?

Meh, I like what I like.
I always lean towards more traditional hard rock than synth-riddled music.
I get that that type of music is a big player here, and I usually stay away from those threads. No need to come in and comment every time I don't like it.
Just having a bit of fun here that's all.

Not sure what you mean about returning?
I've been fairly consistent for the last few years.

Not sure if you're mistaking me for someone who is in a band, or just attempting to be sarcastic.
Assuming that latter, I don't see how releasing music or not diminished an opinion....

Oh shit, didn't Samborarocks return to the forum? With the same avatar as you? Holy shit, what a trip. I totally thought I was replying to Samborarocks. Rofl, so he's not here at all? Did you recently change your avatar?

Yeah, I had the girl with the guitar between her legs.

I decided to go for an even sexier avatar. :)

It should definitely be the blueprint for idiots like Peterik or Stan Bush who make a living on inspiro rock songs. This dude writes one and it crushes all of theirs combined together. ;)

Is that you? Want to date?

But yeah, goes without saying -  just ignore my post above. I thought I was talking to someone else, lol. Though, that said... Synths or not, the songs on this absolutely murder anything anyone else has even thought about releasing so far in 2018. By a long, long way. ;)

Yeah that's me. I just used my Facebook avatar for a change. Hit me up on tinder and we'll see where it goes...

I'll give it a go at some point, with an open mind.
Just doesn't seem like it's what I like all that much.

When that happens I may come out and say it, just expressing my opinion, but I won't come back and repeatedly have a go about it.
If I decide it's ok, I'll happily flip.

I refuse to answer on the grounds that in today's society I will be shunned for making a joke at the expense of the champion gay people out there :)

Interesting side effect of the who gay marriage thing that recently became legal in my country.

The cause is pretty much over.

Weird that in one small change to the law, everything changed. No more protests, no more demands for equality. No more persecution.

Everything kind of just stopped. And society remained exactly the same...

Whenever Geoff joins the thread, there is always potential to discuss gay rights.

Yeah, now I think about it the gay rights talk started because of him.
Because he hit on me :)

I like to be intimate with homosexual men, but I am not gay. However, this EP is awesome. ;)

    • Not bad. I hear the D2 Ted in this.
    • Agreed. Very disappointing. The few Dynazty type tracks are probably the best of the bunch but I am not really liking this disc at all. I want the debut band back pronto!
    • Sure does. What an insanely weak year.
    • The band has no identity either, which I'm surprised I care about so much. Feel like the current bunch will just vanish someday and we'll see new faces without a word mentioned!
    • Mine finally arrived today,over a week late along with new Art Nation...a few days early? This is pretty good,not amazing...but just sounds like Eclipse to me doing what they have done for a while,it will probably work its way into my top 10 somewhere or other,after repeated spins of course...but my goodness its a short disc runtime wise isn't it?
    • Jeepers...what happened to these guys,loved Revolution,wasnt  mad on Liberation but this a different kettle of fish,they sound like theyre tryin to be H.E.A.T at times and Dynazty at times without actually hitting it,also on this they have a few that remind me of Evanescence...   can safetly say I'll never listen to this again.
    • Thanx for the info   didn't even realise that.
    • This is not the same singer that appeared on the album, that was Henry Rundell. Daniel was the singer prior to the album and can be seen on the video for Time to escape (although you would barely recognise him compared to the new video).   I saw Dan last year perform with Ben Christo's side project, Shot Through The Heart, which is an 80s hair metal cover band. Was great seeing him back behind the microphone as I always slightly preferred his vocals to Henry's in Night By Night.   Glad to finally have him back. (and despite the different name, that bassist looks a lot like Johnny Thornton from Night By Night as well)  
    • Love that,his def lep influences are certainly coming through,dont hear the Perfect Plan comparison myself,think its more Danger Danger as he sounds a bit like Ted Poley on this to me...which is great,and a wee bit of Jagged Edge towards the end. Will now look forward to 24th JAN  
    • Here's a video I really enjoyed watching!  I'm sure some of you probably have seen it before, but I wanna share it anyway   [https://youtu.be/JONL0CwZXxY/url] (Btw this is a post I just copy-pasted from thepetrazone.net, but it's still my OP)  https://www.thepetrazone.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=57726&p=175868#p175868
