Whether it be this or Magic Dance or some other curveball, no doubt the best album from this year will come from the back end of the year. Treat too? Can't wait for this.

I forgot the probable winner, in Midnite City. And I probably (hopefully?) missed half a dozen others.

Midnite City, White Widdow, Magic Dance, First Signal, Nordic Union, Creye, Treat, Steve Perry, Care of Night, Degreed (?), Dallas are all my radar.

None will beat NFO though which for me is pure brilliance (again)

A lot of good stuff to come.

I don't expect Nordic Union or Perry to have any real impact on me personally, but I wholeheartedly agree with the rest. Thank goodness there's still all that to come in what has been a pretty tame year thus far.

Agree. I have a (for me) a great top 5 but outside of that the quality drops off a cliff.

I suspect at least 5 of those will be awesome to complete a top 10. that's all I really ask for these days. 

It's not 1989 any more ;)

Borrowing this link from the Midnite City thread;

All sounding good - though 'Fight For Love' seems to have some distinct similarities to 'Game of love' from the last album, lol.

nice tunes but sounding very thin. What happened to the chunky Crossfire sound & Production ?

I was thinking the same thing.  As good as they are(and I do like them), just imagine a "thicker" sound/production. Crunchier/louder guitars and a thick drum sound.

Yup..I thought the same after listening to the samples.

Glad I'm not the only one, I'm missing a bit of delay or echo for that bigger sound like Crossfire or also the moment when the guitar riff starts in Cry Wolf off the Serenade album. Now THAT'S what I wanna hear!

Yeah doods, I've been on the same train of thought for a while too. I made the point a while back that it sounds like they're doing the reverse of bands in the 80's that started out with key friendly AOR and progressed to a ballsier melodic hard rock style. I love all their songs, but their debut has been their ballsiest album yet and seemingly each album gets lighter and more early 80's sounding. Okay if the song are still great, but the first two are my favourite two albums for a reason. :) 

I think I made the point that it sounded like they started with an album that sounded like it was recorded in 1990 (debut), then Serenade sounded like it was from 1988, Crossfire (1987) & Silhouette (1986). To add to my point, those samples of the new album sound like 1985 to me, lol. ;)

Production aside, all those 3 samples sound exquisite. Great energy throughout the verses, lots of hooks and catchy choruses

    • Bonfire had dropped off my radar the past decade (someone mentioned an album a year!!!).   This samples I've heard on the forth coming album have drawn my attention once again and hopefully, this is a refreshing new face for the band's music.    Definitely going to grab a copy of the new one  
    • For sure Tim was one of the best and most gentle soul I ever encountered while collecting music.  Loved all the interactions we had over the years, and yes, he certainly was knowledgable as T-Bone pointed out.   Did a number of trades with Tim and of course, when I was active selling on E Bay, he bought CDs from me and discussed many of the titles I was selling.  Just another good person that I enjoyed.
    • these guys show that you can still make an enjoyable song with generic, borderline cheesy lyrics if the other elements are there
    • Wow....thanks for sharing Tony.   Tim was definitely one of the great guys....I can remember when I was active selling on E Bay, Tim would always be talking to me about different titles and, of course, we traded many times as well    I always had Tim pictured as a very gentle soul.....So sorry to hear of his passing from this awful virus in the world....
    • I am one of those who prefer their style on Knock You Down and Sultans over the direction they've gone in with the last few albums.  I thought the initial promo tracks for this one sounded solid so I gave the album a spin.  Not bad, but at the end of the day none of the tracks really grabbed me like those earlier releases.   
    • I liked the first two promo tracks for the new album, but this one not so much.  And as Geoff mentioned, the video clip itself is pretty bad
    • I don't have one favorite film but there are a few that I rewatch on a regular basis.... Die Hard (first 3 flicks) Pirates of the Caribbean (all of them) Home Alone (first 2) Predator Those are the ones that immediately come to mind but there are others....
    • Canada still hasn't hit the apex yet, although they are saying we should hit it over the next few weeks... I expect we will be staying at home for another 6 months at least...I think we will be dealing with this virus until there is a working Vaccine in place which will be until at least Spring 2021 maybe even Summer 2021...a lot of numbers are being thrown around where we could have as many as 25000 deaths before it is done.....we still aren't testing enough to get a real understanding of the spread.....the economy will truly be screwed for years to come...one good thing to come out of this is that Canada will not have to depend on other countries for health care equipment after this virus as we will make sure that we make our own equipment instead of outsourcing it... latest numbers.... Total: 12,954 (18 presumptive, 12,936 confirmed including 214 deaths, 2,502 resolved)
    • I hope you and your wife are doing well.  Those are difficult enough jobs, but I can only imagine what you both are going through during a time like this.   I anticipate this will remain a major concern here in the U.S. at least through the summer.  In areas hardest hit it really overwhelms the hospitals.  The economy was overall in good shape, but we've already seen lots of furloughs and layoffs.  The federal government has unfortunately been playing catch up through most of this and has had to re-evaluate their assessments and action plans often.  Despite warnings for years from health officials, it seems like both the current and last Presidential administration failed to keep a proper inventory of the necessary ppe and emergency medical supplies. The state and local governments have had to manage much of this on their own initially, and all responded differently.  As such some areas of the country may be better off than others by June/July.  While other states will likely have ramifications for months beyond that.  It astonishes me to see people not taking the recommended precautions seriously while others hoarded essentials early on leading to panic buying and stores struggling to keep some items in stock.  I am grateful my family is well and I remain employed, working from home now.  I check in regularly with my parents, mother-in-law and a few, older neighbors. I try to remain calm so my family feels safe. But to add to my general concerns, I was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer last October.  It's a manageable disease with regular monitoring and treatment, but I am in the high risk category, so my stress level is at a maximum.
