It’s good, not blown away after two tracks. I find the Spotify version sounds better than the one in the video....that could also be my phone.

Agree with you all. It's okay. Both tracks are only 6/10 to 7/10 tops.

I hope there are some 10/10 on there!!

I'm not feeling what I am hearing at all..  none of the energy of the Treat that I love.  Safe and , dare I say, boring.

Feeling pretty much the same....Build The Love wasn't too bad....But was pretty safe.  And the next song feels even safer.

Hoping these are the more "commercial" type songs and they get back to rocking a bit more on some other songs.

They're okay songs and for me, might be songs I'd like better in the context of an album depending on what's around them.  Neither are songs I see myself adding to any playlist for extended listening though.

Meh. Doesn't suck but nowhere near the quality level of the last 2 albums thus far. Sigh.

Thanks for sharing you thoughts!

Have seen a few reviews and sounds like there are some more upbeat melodic rockers on it than we've heard with the first couple tracks so far.  I mean, Build The Love was pretty good but a fairly laid back tune.  And Rose Of Jericho even more laid back.  I've felt that both are songs that might work better in the context of the album if there are some more upbeat melodic rockers around them.

Feels a bit like what H.e.a.t did when they led off with Time On Our Side and Redefined.

I guess these bands are figuring they want to hit you with something different.  I'd prefer they just come out of the box with something rocking and familiar.

Anyways, good to hear on Treat and looking forward to it.

That's a very very good news. Tell me that Jericho song is the worst off the album. Didn't like it one bit. Kinda killed my excitement after listening to that song.

Is it as good as Ghost of Graceland or better or..?...out of curiosity : ))

I purchased the Japanese import yesterday myself and I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival.

Not blown-away by either of the first two (released) songs, but sometimes it takes a full album to appreciate individual tracks.

We'll see.

Too early yet to make comparisons as to which is better between Ghosts Of Graceland/Coup De Grace or this new release,its definitely up there.

Rose Of Jericho is one of the tracks that I wasn't keen on upon original release but its grown on me and wedged in the cd between "Best Of Enemies" and my fav track " Heartmath City" it just works,changes to the tone type of thing.

Plenty of rockier tunes on show right from track 1 "Progenitors" followed up by "Best Of Enemies","Creeps","Riptide" & "All Bets Are Off" as well as more melodic numbers "Always Have Always Will" , "Undefeated"& "Man Overboard" plus the ballady  "Tomorrow Never Comes"

As I say something for everyone and its sounding so good on repeated listens most of my day and for me Numero Uno this year thus far,hope this answered a couple of the comments above :)

I'm not just digging "Tomorrow Never Comes," I'm flat-out loving it.  I don't normally repeat a track four times, but I have this one.

Awesome stuff!

Nice ballad, with all 3 tracks being mellow I'd be a bit discouraged had I not read the above positive comments (thanks for sharing guys!) as it seems like there are plenty of up tempo tracks to enjoy, looking forward to hearing the full album

Listening to this today....Got through the first 4 tracks on the way to work, will listen to the rest later today.

Liked what I heard from the first 4 though.  The first 3 songs all are up tempo rockers....Progenitors is nice start, Always Have, Always will a good up tempo melodic rocker and Best Of Enemies has a cool vibe with a nice little edge to it.

I was lukewarm on Rose Of Jericho but it works better on the album...nice change of pace after the 3 songs that start it off.

I think the one thing already standing out is just the musicianship.....Lots of cool stuff going on with just a clean, crisp sound.

We'll see how the rest goes.

    • 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. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label. 
    • Eye of the Tiger cover  
    • I don't think Frontiers is involved with this one
    • True they have been known for long delays between releases.  But over a similar 15 year span from '84 -'99 they put out 4 albums vs. 2.  And after Pyromania & Hysteria a delay was understandable following up hugely successful records (with long tours), Rick Allen lost his arm and had to relearn how to play, they scrapped recordings and started over with a different producer, and of course Steve's struggles with depression and alcohol eventually leading to his death while working on Adrenalize
