Flores is killing it on the album ! Looks like there are 2 Find Me releases for 2019! And that vibrato, sweet mother of Jesus!!!  Of course, due to different variables in the fermentation process, I cannot decide   yet about  the aging bouquet. I need to test it through repeated hearings. 

 

I love tracks 4-8. And track 3 is nice ballad (still destined to remind me what a masterpiece is   "Are You The Same Girl?"), kinda love the acoustic version more-because of the fragility of his voice.

Well all those doubting he couldnt produce another quality solo album without EM - you were wrong.

This sounds great.

Only one spin but it's all very nice. Big production too :)

I've been pleasantly surprised by this. The main thought I had the entire time I played it was that it's actually probably a lot better than anything he and EM might have actually come up with at the moment. Love EM, but in the last couple of years I think he's just saving all his good stuff for Eclipse now. ;)

As George has noted, it does have a distinct Find Me sound, which is not a bad thing. Good album.

Got it this morning,still on the fence,its definitely more AOR than his debut release and production sounds very good indeed,repeated spins are called for before a more balanced opinion.

gave this a listen, production is nice as mentioned, Toby sounds great, and overall it's a solid AOR release with a couple of stand out tracks in the middle of the album, but unfortunately this one just doesn't grab me like his debut did

Mercury's Down which is a classic is still the better album but this one isn't bad either. There are 3 real gems on this one - Don't leave, Someone Like You and Queen Untouchable. Love those 3 songs.

This is way too fluffy for me, whimpy even.

    • Vega, Crazy Lixx, HEAT, Degreed (this year will hit 5 winners ), ditto for Eclipse...no 5 this year will no doubt be great (I don't include their first 2 as they certainly hate them and they are never being recognised, played live or 're recorded) But I agree every band from yesteryear has at one stinker in their history (although I can listen to Hope & VOR they are definitely weaker) 
    • Can't think of any of favorite bands who've released over 5 albums that haven't released at least on bad album.  Danger Danger - Dawn Dokken - Shadowlife Dream Theater - The Astonishing....ly fucking brutal release Van Halen - III and for the most part Diver Down Harem Scarem - Hope and Voice Of Reason...I honestly can't listen to either Lillian Axe - pretty much everything after Psycho... The only band that comes to mind to have released at least 5 albums, that are HH material and none have been poor or bad is likely H.E.A.T. although I've enjoyed some much more than others.     
    • Love Reaction is the only track on the debut that I would not give it a 10, still a great tune, but the other 9 are all better.
    • Better at my end too.
    • Now it works again.
    • Thanx,I thought it was my connection also  
    • Finally!!!!! Time to believe all the things that you see in this mannequin show...     
    • I have BTBAR on an AOR treasures album. MP3 only. But it is v good quality. Brilliant chorus - one their best. I think White Widdow covered it as well on their Crossfire album (obviously not as good) 
    • Pretty nice. Not my favourite from him... but nice. 
    • That's a great song too, but not sure I have a top notch well produced version of that one... just an average demo, I think. 'Die off hard' is actually one of my all-time faves and I saw the error in my archives was a simple typo. Silly, but an actual error on my behalf.  Regarding 'Love Reaction' - it's a good song and one that has history for me too. I remember reading a review for the debut Harem Scarem album in a magazine for years; can't believe I forget the name now. Metal something (not Edge - it was a UK magazine). But I'd read the review so much in anticipation of finally getting the CD, and the reviewer there was wild about 'Love Reaction' and it was his pick from the album. So in the lead up I was so focused on that song and waiting for it as I played it for the first time when I eventually got it. Gotta admit, I was a bit underwhelmed. It is another of their massive banquet of awesome songs... but it's not up to top of the list for me for sure.  Arguably my least favourite on the sensational debut, to be honest.
