My first thought was 'WOW!!!' Upon hearing that song my enthusiasm just went down 95%. Haha! My three year old daughter just said, 'Daddy, me not like that song.' I agree, my baby girl... I agree. :(

Decent song, but I was expecting a bit more, especially with Dave Dalone involved.  Still looking forward to checking out the album

Reminds me of Danny Vaughn solo style music.

I don't like it at all. Sounds like some pop singer. Terrible!

Same here. The guy looks like the new Sebastian Bach but when the music starts... fuck me running. :D

Kenny put the remaining tracks on his YT page for those who don't use paid streaming services and are interested in listening.  The whole album has a very mellow feel to it.  While his voice sounds good and I am glad to see him back making music most of the songs just didn't work for me.

I get Steve Perry's reasoning on doing a mellow album, what's Kenny's.?!

Yeah if only he had stuck to something akin to the first two H.E.A.T releases  :(

In a word.... dreadful.

Why couldn't he have done a "Is This The Way That You Want Me" style album??

My thoughts on this one are a bit jumbled. Do I like it? Hell no. Will I ever play it again? I said Hell No! Without any second guessing that first spin was the last time I will ever hear this, end of story. 

But is it actually a dreadful album? I'd feel a bit harsh saying that. It's not really like anything I know, and in that regard I think it's pretty ballsy on his behalf. At this point in his career, the absolutely singular, only fans this dude has is the people who dug those first two HEAT albums. No one else knows who he is. So with this album he has undoubtedly disappointed every single fan of those HEAT albums that exists, but it's kind of ballsy. I assume this is something he's passionate about and I hope it attracts him some new fans. 

For me, and probably every other fan of those first two HEAT albums, it's where we part ways and just acknowledge we're on different paths, but I'm not going to begrudge the dude for doing what he is passionate about. I'm really disappointed and sad that this isn't a killer melodic rock/AOR album, but I genuinely wish him the best with this thing. He's given us two killer albums, which is more than 95% of artists in "our genre," so may he prosper. 

On the album, it's a weird ol' thing. Not really sure where he is going with it, but good luck to him.

That song was one of two that almost... almost got me. A nice chorus, but a song is more than a chorus. ;)

    • Pulling out is like like signing a genocide order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • It's a blatant ripoff of Roger Dean and his work for Yes and Asia like "Union" and "The Ladder". 
    • Such a random album cover and band logo... looks more like Saga... or something like that..
    • I did see these when I was googling (and in turn ogling) her the other night. Very delicious. 
    • I was actually spinning it on Thursday/Friday too and stand by my comments. Solid album, but easily the weakest of their last three. Really missing some knock-out blows. But solid. 
    • Got my advance digital copy of the Donnie album and it is defo not an EZN album by any means, with that above song being the only one that really captures that classic sound. Much like most of his releases, this is a more laid back affair for the most part but does have some great songs on it. As expected, a much better album than the EZN one, but would certainly not appeal to everyone. Unsurprisingly the Beatles and Cheap Trick influences are on show here as well.   If you are familiar with the rest of his solo career, then that is pretty much what is on offer here as well.
    • also pulling out of Paris agreement is grossly negligent imo and those tax cuts are gonna hurt the US in the long run....driving up debt will only lead to austerity measures in years to come. Trump won't mind tho cos he's saving millions as a result of his tax cuts lol. 
    • it's not booming in the rest of the world....mainly affected by his ludicrous trade war.
