I had missed the Find Me news.

This is definitely fabulous news.  Now all I need are new albums from Angels or Kings and The Magnificent...

Looking forward to the first sample(s)

Just a hunch, but do you think they might go more ''digital'' or electronic with this one? Just guessing because of the album cover and title

Would be amazing if they re-recorded the Big Time track ''Good Enough'' for this one with the production it deserves.

Solid tune. 

I never really got on board with the debut for some reason.  I liked a few songs but just not enough to buy it.  Could be one that I come back around to at some point. 

This isn't too bad....Definitely very 80's.

I agree..really liked only 2 or 3 songs off the debut with 'Part of me' being one of the highlights of 2017. What a song!

Glen should love this, it’s like a stripped down Night Flight Orchestra. Excellent stuff, much more AOR than the debut with this track. Sounds fresh unlike many other releases out there....with a cool solo to boot.

This is oddly the last song on the record and they release it as the first single, only listened to the 30 second preview the other day and got a Toto vibe (mid 90s Tambu or their last album) in terms of sound

Still can't get into the debut, just two days ago a song (Stranger's Eyes) came up on a playlist and it starts off very promising with a breezy, beachy feel in the intro and the first verse also sounds nice. So I tell myself why didn't I love this 2 years ago when it was released, maybe I should revisit it........ then the pre-chorus kicks in and I'm like yeah, now I remember why :D I don't know, just seems ''off'' to me and the only track which was good front to back without any out of place sounding parts is ''Man Behind The Gun''

By the way here's the tracklist:

  1. Binary Music
  2. Tears Of Gaia
  3. Nothing Personal
  4. Promised Land
  5. Love Songs
  6. Dangerous Grounds
  7. Queen Of The Prom
  8. Who's Counting Time
  9. Julia
  10. To Have And To Hold

Julia is a remake of a song Michael Palace recorded with his old band Big Time, here's the original version (sorry wouldn't embed):

LMAO....I did the same thing yesterday.

Know exactly what you're talking about.....Just get a little bit of an "off" feeling with much of it.  It's just a little too Toto-ish for my tastes overall.  I'm more of a melodic hard rock guy and generally don't really care for "pure AOR" stuff like Toto, Survivor, etc.  I feel like this fits in that class for the most part.  

Do like a few tunes on it though.  Man Behind The Gun is good, Part of Me is excellent....Also liked She Said It's Over.  

The new song seems decent but really not expecting I'll be getting this one.

    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable.
    • You need to know who you are before trying to figure out who other people are.
    • I can work with Floor,  I like that Northward album she did with Jørn Viggo Lofstad.
    • Live performance  Honestly, I didn't care for this much upon first listen, but with each play I find it ear worming it's way into my skull...  Troy announced he was taking time off from touring last year, so I'm assuming that's still Steve Brown (Wild Mick Brown's brother)  on drums... Drummer Troy Luccketta to take time off the road and to be replaced by Steve Brown at Tesla shows - Sleaze Roxx
