Surprisingly that's how I've felt to.

Agree, nothing like their old stuff and nothing like the ultra melodic stuff I usually like.  But for some reason still like these songs.  They still rock IMO....just a different style of rock

Maybe I'm just desperate for anything new at this point as it's been a really slow year.

That has to be it! This stuff is just not good modern garbage.

Musically it's great, but vocally it still sounds fuck all like the guy who sang Squeeze box and Rob the cradle.

Better than the previous effort...still not what we remember as Roxy Blue but times change,tastes change and theirs obviously have....mine though has not and slow year or not id be scrapping the barrel if I bought this or indeed put it ahead of quite a lot of what I have heard this year.

Digging this tune from the new album....Probably the most "classic" sounding song on the album IMO.

Heard this today  :( was giving it a try until I reached the track "Outta The Blue"...Im sorry but its a Big Fat No from me on this,I remember the past when Wildside & Sven Gali after stellar debuts tried to go with flow of the time and the abuse they received for doing so...still do now and they were for me better bands from the time...this follows a similar path,from my own personal perspective,an opportunity wasted sadly...but each to their own.

I gave it a spin today and it has it's moments. The ballads are nice (much like the debut). I'll give it a few spins, but one thing that may be controversial to say is that, for me, it belts the ass out of the new Unruly Child CD, for me personally. :)

I don't get some of the opinions on this one... it is complete and utter shit. Full stop.

Musically, productionwise, everything. Absolute ass. If I could give it a -5 out 5 I would. It's like they're trying to be vintage Alice in Chains *spit* "Now featuring even less talent!!" This album is the very '90s grunge that I loathe with every fibre of my being.

It's absolutely horrid. If I saw someone on the street with this CD, I would snatch it out of their hands, throw it on the ground and stomp it into oblivion just to save them... and they would thank me later.

Fucking Christ, it's awful.

Gah! I need some bleach for my eardrums...

For me, it's not miles apart from the Stiffkitty CD from 2009. Which I thought was okay. I really liked this song;

And as per the debut Roxy Blue album, and the new Roxy Blue album... the ballads are the songs that shine most of all. 

It's not a great record but for me it's far more 'Dawn' than 'Shadowlife' or 'Inwire.' ;)

Thank you Dan.... the voice of reason.

This is complete GARBAGE. Modern grungy mid 90's like trash.

I can't believe people are actually liking this AT ALL.

    • How To Talk To Girls At Parties ~ Wow, where'd this 2016 movie come from? Really good film and not in any way shape or form associated with the title which has no relevance to the film. Super eclectic but not in that Portland trying to be weird way by screaming it in peoples faces that your weird to try and convince everyone even though your not. Period 70's movie centering around some punk rockers that stumble upon a "party" but everyone there are aliens, unbeknownst to the 3 boys. Crazy ensues there after with a very cool sappy ending. Well worthy a watch imho.
    • Exactly what I have been thinking too haha. I love the Marcello/Vestry album more than TMF and The Defiants' debut albums. Personally I find it even better than most DD albums. It's one of my fave melodic rock albums of all time. 
    • Ha! I actually made some comments in that thread. Completely forgot about it.

    • 4 tracks from the debut 7 from Freedom Rock 4 from Address The Nation 5 from TDTW 6 from ITGU plus Drink Alone
    • Sounds very U2 to me, which I don't mind
    • I would appreciate if you guys could answer the following question : Has anyone heard the GUIRO (if you don't know what it is please google it) in "Love Is The Killer"? And does it bother you? I just noticed it while listening to the album with headphones. They already used a guiro on the debut ("Waiting On A Heartbreak") which I thought was strange at first but it's only during the chorus and I've since gotten used to it. But this time they really went overboard with it it's so irritating. You can hear it throughout the entire verses and the solo...  Edit: it's also on U X'd my heart, although a bit more subtle. What's the fascination with this (sorry to say) useless instrument? The only thing it does is ruin a perfectly good song
    • Nice song but not completely blown away by it. Out of the first singles/videos they have released so far for each album except Artwork, this new one is my least favourite. Hope the rest are all gems.
