That wouldn't be very hard. It's been a very poor year for our genres.

would be pretty hard to top my top 5....all of which are excellent. Quality pretty much drops off a cliff after that ;)

excellent album - just really strong polished AOR all the way through.

No filler, great production.

Vere classy, but it's too soft for me. Songs are so melodic though, so I'll give this a few spins. I used to love this stuff back in the day, so I hope I can get back in to it.

Really good, but that was to be expected. 4 great albums on the bounce now. Not many can say that in recent years

Listened to this earlier today and I have to say this just oozes class and is a perfect example of how to create a fantastic sounding modern AOR album. A few of the tracks immediately reminded me of other artists. Agree with kourosofsteel3 on the burning heart comparison with Another Night and also with lettard on the Foreigner vibe of Let Me Dream. Also Sunstorms Love Gone Wrong came to mind when I heard Scars To Prove It and Gotta Get Out has a Magic Dance vibe, reminded me of  Cut Beneath The Skin. Anyway you slice it this is a fantastic album and the 4th one on the trot.

Really nice album. A couple towards the end I'm not completely in love with, and the opener... but mostly, it's very nice. I will put it out there, though, and it may not be met too well.

But I will say the overall vibe for me on this album was actually that of a really great Lionville album - as in their best yet. But overall, for me at least in the early stages, not quite a truly brilliant WOA album. 

Either way, it's still damn good and will be heard frequently.

Not on par with their previous 3 albums?

For me personally, In Progress is their strongest followed by their debut.

I'll give it more spins but initially, yes, it's my fourth favourite album in their discography;

1. In Progress

2. Artwork

3. Framework

4. Exhibits

And it should be noted, all winners.

yeah for me you are probably talking a range of 95% down to a minimum of 85% which is pretty amazing for a run of 4 albums. 

if I had one minor gripe it would be some songs are starting to sound a bit similar so for me I welcomed the odd veer to the proggy keys etc as it made for something a bit different from them

This is an excellent album.  Nice mix of sounds.  Am really loving the retro tune "Let Me Dream".  Has a lot of Foreigner's "Waiting For a Girl Like You" in it, only more up-tempo.  There's a couple other bands in it, too, but I'm drawing a blank on who it sounds like.  Great song though.

on Yotube in the video for Another Night, the drummer has become a focus of attention, lol :)

I don't know why they filmed from that angle.

    • Make Love Like a Man - Def Leppard.   Released as a single from "Adrenalize". I've always hated it. Easily the worst DL song IMO.
    • Thanks mate. I don't know why I was having trouble finding it.
    • what a weird album.  The first 4 tracks are all great and exactly what I want to hear from TMF. then 2 gigantic fillers absolutely kills it imo.  the album in the second half loses momentum - 2 or 3 solid songs at best before a strong end in winner takes all. overall I think the Defiants is much better and teds last solo offering was awesome. I do like those first 4 tracks tho   
    • Seems like they stuck with the same gritty approach to production but it sounds a lot better than the debut. I'm digging this one!
    • I do like the song itself, but I would agree it's such a drastic change in pace that it disrupts the flow quite a bit.  I probably would have swapped that with 'Look Into Me' and placed it near the end of the album.
    • An evolution on the debut in the sound and production...more mature...more Defiants like😂 The title track sure crashes the momentum after the first four awesome tracks.     
    • Ok now that I have listened to it several times, this is my favourite song and it's a beauty. The last track on the album 'Last Train'. You get the vibe of Los Angeles and Sunset in one song. One of the best songs I have heard so far in 2020.    
    • It’s an anti “best of” list.  Songs that were big hits or band’s signature tracks that to be honest are not a favourite of yours...you can’t even add them to a “best of” mix on your phone or on a CDR...and some just down right suck!   Headed For A Heartbreak- Winger (so boring!) Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi (Dead please!) Dude Looks Like A Lady - Aerosmith (awful!)..Rag Doll was even worse Cherry Pie - Warrant (not a bad song but the majority of the rest of the album is way better) Mr. Roboto - Styx (I still can’t forgive Dennis for that mess) More Than Words- Extreme (I like the song but damn that was so not the Extreme sound in general...my dad thought it was the Everly Brothers) When The Children Cry - White Lion (I cry because I can’t take it anymore...too sappy) Pretty Fly For A White Guy - The Offspring (nice sell out boys) Enter Sandman - Metallica (It’s almost become a jingle and was so over played) Silent Lucidity- Queensryche (I saw them live and they ended the concert with this one...talk about not leaving the show on a high)
