No... it is horrendous.

Much better than the ridiculous first track.  Solid tune that sounds like it could be a leftover from the Intuition sessions.

It's still pretty basic stuff. Like I said above, kind of like demos for their first album or something, rather than something from a band that have been "in the game" for so long. But there's no doubt they're attempting to recapture an actual authentic TNT sound this time around. Poor as it may be, lol.

I agree with Geoff. Very basic, just starting out kind of vibe. Not a veteran band. Much better than the first single but still pretty average stuff.

This is going to be one weak ass disc. These songs are wimpy.

Hmmm, I dunno. I kinda dig that one. Again, as I said above, this is really simple stuff. As in something you'd expect from a new band, about 35 years ago... but I don't dislike it. That's actually pretty damn catchy. Kinda dodgy, but catchy.

So its out now, what do you think about it? People seem to be really split about it - I feel like you either dig it or hate it. But I've read and discussed it mostly with fellow Norwegians, and we might have a little different relationship to this band than everyone else. A little stronger, perhaps. Haha. 

I really like it. The first single released was horrible, but lots of the other stuff is great. I like the light vibe most of the songs got, it makes it perfect for summer. I also think that this is an album that will grow on you, when you understand that a new TNT-album released won't neccesarily sound like Tell no Tales or Intuition. I also really like their new singer, and I hope they'll stick with him for a while!

I gave it a listen and it was pretty much what I expected after hearing the promo tracks.  As Geoff and AlphaMale commented, this sounds like either old, unreleased demos or pre-production demos.  Unfortunately the band seems to have been unable to shape that material into good songs.  Instead, many of the tracks end up sounding unfinished or slapped together.  On the positive side, Ronni has some nice moments, the new singer sounds pretty good and there are a handful of decent tunes (Tears In My Eyes, We're Gonna Make It, Can't Breathe Anymore, Where You Belong and Sunshine).  In my opinion though nothing here comes close to the level of their best material.

Yep, it's a scrappy one for sure. I think 'We're not gonna make it' and 'Tears in my eyes' are actually kind of cool. Simple, basic demo type of sounding songs... but I like them both. Catchy. 

As for the rest of the album - pile of dog shit.

I refuse to listen to this.

I reckon I could make one 10 track disc that I like across every TNT album.

Massively overrated imo

I can see why Harnell bolted. This is a pretty crappy version of TNT. Although it's not the singer's fault. Piss-weak songs and a couple decent songs. Nothing worth talking about since All The Way To The Sun, which even had it's WTF moments.

I like this album because  you got the tipycal Tnt sound.

Bardot  Bulsara really sound like Harnell and I'm a fan of this singer.

 

I prefer this to the albums with Tony Mills.

People come toghether is another good song.

Everybody scream against the lyrics of "get ready for some hard rock",

Well, Def Leppard  and many others used lyrics like that but everybody like them.

    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527

    • Don't miss it. They're still amazing live. 
    • Is he really more and more in demand? Or is it simply signing with Frontiers means he is producing?
    • https://meramecmusictheatre.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=1154903 Me & my mom might go together!
