I loved the first album, but as probably my least fave tracks on it were the ones fronted by Kennedy, it is no surprise that the follow ups have no excited me.

At least he does not seem to aping Axl on this song, something he has done way too much on other releases.

Funny thing is, if I heard this without knowing who it is, at points it kinda reminds me of Tyketto, but then the vocals on the verses give away that it is not.

I thought every album so far has had at least a few decent tracks on it. Having said that, I listened to World on Fire the least and Apocalyptic Love the most out of the three. This might not have anything to do with song quality but only that I was more receptive to this style back then

But will need to check out World on Fire again to see how it's held up

For me Kennedy took time to come to terms with.
Never really saw him as mimicking Axl, but he has a unique voice for sure.
 

Kennedy seems like a good dude and all, but his voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.  Music reminds me of Blind Melon... and I HATED Blind Melon.

"Hate" is actually sugar-coating my feeling toward the entire Grunge movement of the early '90's.  What a paltry time that was for me (musically).

Blind Melon?  Surprising comparison, I'm not hearing much grunge influence.   Blind Melon and Slash do have a bit of a connection though, their singer provided backup vocals on Use Your Illusion and was in the video for "Don't Cry"

I didn't listen to the new track... I've really only heard Kennedy when he did a Guitar Center acoustical thing with Slash a while back, and all I could think of was Shannon Hoon and his stupid bumblebee outfit :)

Haha, the bumblebee outfit!  When I read your post earlier, the only song by Blind Melon that I could even think of was the one with the girl with the glasses wearing that costume.

Pretty shit album, innit? I assume that the silence following it's release, on such a prolific artist, means no one's really into this? I've found a song or two to like from his recent albums, but this is a struggle. I thought 'The One You Loved Is Gone' was a pretty fine ballad, and the sole keeper from the album.

But the rest... just sounds like Slash's Snakepit, when imo Slash was at his worst. It's not good.

Forgot about this one until yesterday I saw it at JBHiFi
Will track it down and give it a spin.
I really liked 7 songs off the last album, but this is a band that required quite a few listens before a call can be made.
Songs need to imbed themselves inside your brain to really get them.

So I'm listening now and so far it's actually pretty good.
On first listen probably a bit catchier than previous records.

Even hits a lower register on Lost Inside The Girl, which is cool as I was comparing Kennedy's voice to Mark Slaughter as far as learning to like it, and was wondering if he had a lower register. Not quite the difference that Slaughter has, but not bad...

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
