Song is ok, but not really my thing.

Tried really hard to like this band in the past but could never get there.

Mighty opus, thin sound. 

decent Opus. Crap sound.

I could record a thicker sound than this on my laptop

The saddest thing is that you have a maestro like Enzo Almanzi and you make him sound like a pussy cat. 

Btw, still Ghost Of Graceland >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Tunguska  (What a waste of a great title)

Yeah man, Enzo is a good dude. I'm also a bit disappointed as my only gripe is the WAY it sounds

Seeing as this is the band's second album with a ''thinner'' sound it had to be a conscious decision they (or someone) took which for me is hard to understand

I'm lovin' it! And, sweet mother of Jesus, that synth driven lite AOR "reach up" is so infectious! (Just in time to unbox my "The Midnight" vinyl)

So this came out today, was a bit surprised as I thought it wouldn't be out till December. Not sure why

Listened to half the album this morning and Fight For Love is the standout track so far

I was waiting for this one and YES!  You are right the groove in "Reach Up" is killer. One of the instances where the production actually fits the song, very cool

This is a really nice album, but I gotta be honest - the thin sound bothers me a bit. I don't really understand it, is the main thing. I doubt they couldn't have had this well produced, if they wanted it. So to me, it seems like a personal decision and I don't know why they made the call. Overall, I guess some of the really vintage sounding AOR kind of suits a thinner production, but my main issue is how it cheapens the backing vocals. The backing vocals and harmonies are a pretty important part of this band's sound, and like I say, I think the thin production takes away from this. 

I hope they return to the sound/style of their s/t or 'Serenade' soon as I love the albums... but I'm not sure this thin sound is the direction they need to be taking.

I cannot get enough from it! Pure silky AOR uncork champagne  anthems! They did it again! Of course, I wouldn't mind if they indeed searched for the punchy Crossfire sound. As long as the songs are great.

The songs are always great - that won't be an issue with these guys. But it's amazing the influence a good production has on the songs, though.

I was thinking today that for the hundreds of mundane releases you get per year - all well produced drivel - it's a bit of a crying shame when two of the premier acts "our genre" offers up submit albums with poor production jobs. And I speak of both Vega and White Widdow. Song-wise, easily two of the year's best albums. Production-wise, they would probably honestly, and sadly, be sitting in the bottom 5% of all 2018 releases, and that's a gigantic disappointment in my eyes. :(

Oh, and by the way, have you guys tuned into the shredding going on at the end of 'Fight for love?' Man that dude can play...
