Shark Island - Bloodline

Recommended Posts

I feel like I'm invited to a party and everyone's nude except me. What's the go with this album? Why does it sound like a smashed ass cheek? A band that achieved a bit of success back in the day can't get an album properly produced? This sounds like dogshit. I thought it was old demos just released now in 2019. 

And sorry guys, I was never a massive fan of Richard Black in the first place, but appreciated his different vocals and kinda dug him... but he sounds dreadful on this. That closing ballad is a strong contender for worst song of 2019, and his vocals are a contributing factor. 

Agree with you guys that a few of the early songs are pretty cool, as well as 'When she cries' and 'Law of the order.' But there's also some real garbage on this. All in all, sadly, I thought it was a pretty poor album. Not one I'd spin again either. :(

“Bloodline” was produced by Alex Kane (formally of Life Sex And Death) and mixed by the legendary Sylvia Massy.

I'm not even going to listen to this.

I don't want to tarnish my memories of a classic album.

I'd rather just stick to listening to that thanks

I'm not familiar with their previous output? Does it always sound so terrible?

Heard of Kane only from the band LSD and I have no clue who the other person is.

Yeah, I remember the dude from LSD. I don't know about his life after LSD, but seems an odd choice as a first choice producer (even odder after hearing this album).  And yeah, I've never heard the other name either. I'm thinking, after this, that's for a very, very, very, VERY good reason.
