The Defiants - Zokusho

Recommended Posts

30 years after Bruno Ravel gave us the Danger Danger debut and nearly 30 years after the iconic Paul Laine debut, we find ourselves eagerly awaiting a new release from these two legends of our music. We are all very blessed. I feel 17 again.

For whatever reason, I didn't actually think they'd manage to follow up the debut. I'm glad to be wrong.

OK, so I'm currently on holiday in Rhodes, and while chllin' by the pool this afternoon I was browsing the forum and seen this new Defiants track had dropped. I had just got myself a nice cold Mythos so I layed back and pressed play and almost chocked on my beer as the song played 🤯 Damn if this isn't the best thing I've heard this year and have been listening to it on a loop. 

SU... FUCKING... PERB!!!

Will it come out in Japan first, I want it now?

It will but only two days earlier. I like the song it's really good, I will say this though.... it's not as impressive as ''Love and Bullets'' was when they released it as the debut's first single. Might be the element of surprise they had going for them, because by now we expect great music from this band

yeah, reading all other comments one would think this song is fantastic....

I think song is nice, but nothing great, will see what other tracks on the album sound like

Ridiculously good... as if it would have been anything but with these guys involved. Should comfortably crush anything released thus far this year. The one thing I don't get; Why isn't Steve West just an official proper member of this band?

And how's the solo too? There was a sexy dose of vintage Andy Timmons in that beauty. Love everything about this.

I was never a massive fan of the first album.
Tried really hard, listened heaps, but the songs were all too samey for me.
Eventually I picked out a bunch of songs that stood out slightly more and made a best of folder beginning with these.
But they were never really stand out songs too much. Maybe Take Me Back and Lil Miss RNR

Fallin' For You is pretty killer though.
Ticks all my boxes :)

I was never a massive fan of the first album, save a few songs. 

But then I listened to it again...

And again...

And again...

And now it's a part of my regular rotation.

Lovvveeeeee it!! Think this album will top my 2019 fave list. Two killer songs so far. And all the samples sound great too.

The new songs are on Spotify, so you can at least blast those two all Summer.

I hate to be a downer, but for me this one would sound so much better with Poley on vox , Timmons on guitars and Lance Quinn on the control-board.

I understand preferring Ted over Paul or wanting to hear something that sounds like Danger Danger's debut.  But unfortunately that lineup is likely never recording together again.  There aren't many releases these days that come close to matching our favorites from the 80's.  But I'm thrilled that these guys are making another album, because in 2019 it doesn't get much better than the Defiants, imo.   Plus, didn't Tony Rey perform most of the guitar parts on the debut?  ;)

I love Ted but in my opinion the Defiants with Paul on vocals is as good as it gets. Even at this age, his vocals still sound the same the way it was back in the 'Stick it in your ear' days. Hasn't changed one bit.

Completely agree. 100%

    • 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)
