I find this album to be horrible. By far her worst ever. It's definitely a new style for her and the worst thing is she seems very comfortable and competent at it. So I guess good luck to her, if this is where she's headed. 

But if you're looking for something that sounds like her 80's/90's stuff, steer well clear of this. If, however, you're just looking for a good album with good songs... well, still steer well the fuck away from this. Awful stuff.

I quite link this. Not going to change your world but there some catchy stuff in here. 

I've not really heard her early stuff so I'm not comparing it against that material though. 

I'm somewhat unsure what making love to a crocodile is all about.

On a scale of 'chain' to 'Zelda' how much do you link it?

But, Geoff, the press release says it's her best album in decades.

I kinda disagree and agree with you on this. The disagreement is because overall it is not a terrible album and is by far not her worst (go listed to the two jazz albums and 2Preciious or whatever that band was called). And as for classic sound, she does not really have one as her sound evolved significantly over the years. She went from the rawer heavier stuff of her earliest albums to the slick radio friendly stuff like Some girls do, to a more modern "serious" album like Emotional rain. All very different.

Now where I do agree with you is that it is nowhere near close to being up there with her best and the lyrics are bloody horrible.

There were a couple of songs where I just wanted to shout at her to shut up. The lyrics actually sound at times like they were written by a 10 year old who had just formed their own band for the first time. (My babe being a particularly bad song lyrically.)

 

The album for me is listenable, but is not even a patch on her last one (which I know left fans divided).

 

I know having the word blues in the title was a giveaway she would be trying her hand at that style of music, but I did not expect the lyrics to give me the blues due to the horribleness.

    • I like it plenty, they've always had this kind of gloomy side to some of their songs, and they do that really well.
    • I'm becoming the biggest fan of this band. I also like how they chose non-obvious covers. It shows they have a sense of history and must be genre fans like us.
    • I dig that new tune. Nice. 
    • New song is okay but I don't like their metal sound. Everything is too loud and hurts when you turn the volume up a little. Samples on Itunes of the rest of the album sound okay, too. Some moments that are worse than I ever imagined Wig Wam to be (The american dream chorus absolutely doesn't fit and only contains 3 notes and god by your side would be okay if Åge sang it, sailor and the desert sun screams anything but Wig Wam), some moments are quite cool (Forevermore is very different, uppercut shazam is hard hitting and a typical Wig wam anthem). In the end it's too much Trond Holter for me. He's writing good riffs but he can't be quiet for a second. It's just missing the effortlessness and the good vibe in my opinion.  
    • 'The Big Easy' out March 17th.   Press release: Already the first lines of the new John Diva song "Back In The Days" convey what feeling the band stands for. Spandex pants, youthful recklessness, party mood and full batteries in the Walkman: John Diva & The Rockets Of Love bring the carefree moments of the 80s into the present and make them sound like the new hot shit. And can't we all use a little carefree? John Diva & The Rockets Of Love stand for fat parties, passionate stage shows stage shows, but also for liberal messages in their lyrics. Bullshit? No way. So the five musicians give the genre-usual sexism in their lyrics a clear rebuff, for example in songs like "Boys Don't Play With Dolls". "With us, everyone is welcome and appreciated," frontman John Diva makes clear. Good thing. Because I think we can all use a little carefree attitude. TRACKLIST 1. California Rhapsody 2. The Big Easy 3. God Made Radio 4. Runaway Train 5. Thunder 6. Believe 7. Back In The Days 8. Hit And Run 9. Boys Don’t Play With Dolls 10. The Limit Is The Sky 11. Capri Style 12. Wild At Heart    
    • New song 'ln For The Count' (Balance cover)   Tracklisting: 1. In For the Count (Balance cover) 2. Dancin' in the Ruins (Blue Öyster Cult cover) 3. In My Dreams (REO Speedwagon cover) 4. Subdivisions (Rush cover) LINE-UP: Alex Falk - vocals Oscar Bromvall - guitars Rickard Gramfors - bass Freddie Allen - drums      
    • From Frontiers: Norwegian rock n' roll warriors Wig Wam have announced they will release their new studio album, "Out Of The Dark" on February 10, 2023. Coming on the heels of renewed, enthusiastic interest in the band thanks to their classic track 'Do Ya Wanna Taste It' being used as the theme song for HBO's popular Peacemaker television series, "Out Of The Dark" sees an already extremely talented band feeling truly reinvigorated and inspired.  Wig Wam, vocalist Glam (Åge Sten Nilsen), guitarist Teeny (Trond Holter), bassist Flash (Bernt Jansen), and drummer Sporty (Øystein Andersen), formed in Halden, Norway in 2001 and have been mixing '80s inspired glam metal with classic hard rock, with entertaining lyrics and over-the-top imagery thrown in, to create a good old fashioned rock n' roll vibe for over two decades. In 2005, the year after the release of their debut album (first titled 667.. The Neighbour of the Beast and later changed to Hard To Be A Rock N' Roller), the band had their first international breakthrough when they represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest, placing ninth with the song "In My Dreams". The band would go on to release three more studio albums, Wig Wamania (2006), Non Stop Rock 'N Roll (2010), and Wall Street (2012) before splitting up in 2014.  The band would reunite in 2019 and work on a new album, Never Say Die that was released in early 2021. In 2022, the band had a stroke of good fortune when film/television director James Gunn selected their 2010 song "Do Ya Wanna Taste It" (from the album Non Stop Rock 'N Roll) as the opening theme song for the HBO Max show Peacemaker starring John Cena. The show, based on a DC Comics character, showcased the band to a whole new audience who had been previously unaware of them and has seen the band taking on renewed interest and booking more and more live dates around the world.  With new album "Out In The Dark" in tow, Wig Wam is ready to show even more rock 'n roll fans around the globe their entertaining take on hard rock! Tracklisting: 1. Out Of The Dark 2. High And Dry 3. Forevermore 4. Bad Luck Chuck 5. Uppercut Shazam 6. Ghosting You 7. The Purpose 8. The American Dream 9. 79 10. God By Your Side 11. Sailor And The Desert Sun Line-Up: Glam (Åge Sten Nilsen) - vocals Teeny (Trond Holter) - guitars Flash (Bernt Jansen) - bass Sporty (Øystein Andersen) - drums
