From FB (yesterday):

Just got off the phone with Frontiers Music srl and I'm happy to say that the new album will see the light of day before the end of the year!
Who's excited to hear it?

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.

Not bad. Need to hear more though; doesn't quite hit me the way the debut did, but it's only one song.

Not bad,but not what I was expecting...this sounds like the Bee Gees meets Take That meets Chicago type of thing upon first listen.

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:

  2. Tears Of Gaia
  3. Nothing Personal
  4. Promised Land
  5. Love Songs
  6. Dangerous Grounds
  7. Queen Of The Prom

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.

    • that's because in their prime 79-86 they barely toured outside of the US and so were not that well known (outside of the US obviously) 
    • Dunno him...but it says this person is legendary  couldn't even be bothered to google the name.
    • Yeah, and with the January releases by H.e.a.t, Passion & GOK it looks like the new year is going off with a bang 
    • Hopefully a very nice start to the new year. I'm looking forward to it. 
    • Yeah, I remember the dude from LSD. I don't know about his life after LSD, but seems an odd choice as a first choice producer (even odder after hearing this album).  And yeah, I've never heard the other name either. I'm thinking, after this, that's for a very, very, very, VERY good reason. 
    • I've never seen Def Leppard or Poison, so their set lists would still be fresh to me. Poison only play 8 songs, though? That's soft. I have friends who have seen Def Leppard on recent visits to Australia and they also said they were still very good.  Anyway, I don't for a second think this'll make it to Aussie shores.  I have seen Motley Crue a few years back (possibly on one of their last ever Aussie shows - one of them...). I enjoyed it 'cause I had great seats and I just loved seeing them, but Vince's every 10th word left a little to be desired. 
    • 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
