I agree it's probably the third best so far, but jeezus wept, it's still pretty awesome. Only behind the others because the others are top notch. 

New video for 'Falling For You'.     From Frontiers: THE DEFIANTS are back with their sophomore album, "Zokusho". Comprised of Paul Laine, Bruno Ravel, and Rob Marcello,

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.

I loved the Ted years of Danger Danger but I think Paul took them to another level.

That being said, those 2 tracks are superb and just what I wanted to hear from them.

This might be a better album then the first one!!

Saying it would be better with essentially the classic D2 line up is impossible to say. Do I prefer Ted era D2 to Paul era, yes, but they are two very different beasts and the only real comparison we have for material is the Cockroach album. Would Screw it sound better with Paul? No. Would Gildersleeves sound better with Ted? No.

 

Just appreciate that this band gives us Paul era D2 and Tokyo Motorfist gives us Ted era.

Best of both worlds.

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.

yep agree. Paul sounds a million $ on these tracks. Love Ted but defo not as strong vocally these days.

Just fantastic!

 

 

Oh my god this chorus.

Also IMO Laine is on a completely different level than Poley and always has been.

Is the argument "Who's the better vocalist?" I don't think we're arguing who's better. I believe the argument is, and always has been, "Who is Danger Danger?"

That's a good point.

For me, Laine is way better vocally and I prefer the Defiants to Danger Danger if I had to choose.

But, Poley is the voice of DD for me just because they had their biggest success and hits with him.  So if there were another "Danger Danger" album, I'd prefer it to be with Poley.

All said though, I'm perfectly happy with the way things are.  The Defaints are great and Ted sounded as good as ever on Tokyo Motor Fist.  The more new, quality music we get the better.

Yep.  For me that first Defiants album was above any Danger Danger album. 

And album #2 is looking like it will just add to that.

Don't get me wrong...liked Danger Danger back in the day.  But never really overly liked them for whatever reason.

I like The Defiants, but personally there is not one single song on their debut (or what we have heard from #2) that is better than anything on the first two D2 albums.

So you're saying that nothing The Defiants have done is better than "Yeah, You Want It!"? :o;)

Well I like that song more than anything on The Defiants album, so yeah.

It was a fun song, not to be taken seriously.

Songs off the first two DD albums which were bettered by some songs off The Defiants debut...

Under The Gun
Saturday Nite
Boys Will Be Boys
Live It Up
Beat The Bullet
Puppet Show
Find Your Way Back Home
Yeah You Want It

Looks like a significant list, but the otehr way of looking at it is that the other 17 or so songs were all killer and Defiants can't compete with them.

Fair enough and to each their own. For the record, I like the song too, as amusing filler, but I don't consider it high-quality Danger Danger and many The Defiants tunes easily trump it for me. That said, taken as a whole, I would agree that the first two DD albums are superior to The Defiants debut (reserving judgment on "Zokusho" until it can be given a proper chance).

That's actually a pretty accurate list... except for the ridiculous inclusion of 'Beat the bullet.' But I assume you made a typing error or something with that one. 

I like 'Yeah you want it' too and play it every time I play the album. But let's not be circus folk. Is 'Yeah you want it' a better song than 'Love and Bullets' (for example)? You'd (not you, CureTheSane) bet your house on that on a lie detector test? Let's keep it honest, folk. 

For the record, I absolutely love The Defiants and think this new one may be album of the year. But as a whole, I definitely prefer the first three (why does no one ever include 'Cockroach' when speaking of prime D2??) Danger Danger albums. They all had fillers, but they're all magnificent albums. 

But of course there are Defiants songs that are better than a few of the fillers on those D2 albums. It's all great music though.

Beat The Bullet never did it for me. uninspiring and mundane.
I don't mind Yeah You Want It, but it didn't make ny best of folder.

Revolve is great.
I still put FU$ on compilations regularly.

I always include Cockroach, my favorite album from them!!!

Yep, 'Cockroach' and 'Revolve' are both excellent, but 'Cockroach' is a complete follow-on from the first two and part of the trifecta for me. Released at the time or not.

'Revolve' is a great album, but years had obviously passed. 'Cockroach' is arguably the last album that featured Ted Poley in his prime, vocally.

    • Press release: UK rock band, CATS IN SPACE, have announced the release of their fourth album ‘Atlantis‘ on November 27th via Harmony Factory / Cargo Records UK. The first single ‘I Fell Out of Love with Rock n’ Roll‘ will be released on October 30th. CATS IN SPACE return with their fourth studio album this Winter with the sensational ‘ATLANTIS’. Nine months in the making, it is set to cause tidal waves around the globe with a sound still ‘very Cats’ but this time the ‘Rock claws’ are out. In a year which has seen much upheaval in the world, the band have also undergone some changes whilst buried deep beneath the ocean recording their new masterpiece. Joining the Cats onboard is none other than the star of Jeff Wayne’s ‘War of the Worlds’, the amazing DAMIEN EDWARDS, whose incredible vocal range has brought another dimension to the unique sounds of the band. After three hugely acclaimed and successful albums, this new line-up will certainly get the fans buzzing in anticipation of the new ‘Aquatic monster’. “Atlantis has been a testing journey for the band in many ways, taking into account some personal events and indeed the state of the business due to Covid-19. But, let us reassure you all, we believe that the new record is going to blow you away. It rocks more and has more symphony, courtesy of our good friend Mike Moran and his orchestra! We are super excited for everyone to hear what we believe is our finest album yet” – Greg Hart. Tracklist: 1. Dive! 2. Spaceship Superstar 3. Revolution 4. Sunday Best 5. Listen To The Radio 6. I Fell Out Of Love With Rock ‘n Roll 7. Marionettes 8. Queen Of The Neverland 9. Magic Lovin’ Feelin’ 10. Can’t Wait For Tomorrow 11. Seasons Change 12. Atlantis

    • New song 'Castaway'. Nice!    
    • So I just heard this song, you all probably know of it, or not, I fucking really really like this song, I think it fucking rocks, but rocks in like a crossover Punk-Goth-Raw Hard Rock throwback to the Black Flag - Loose Nut type days, this song is completely raw, unpolished, and just dirty,    
    • I know a few years ago I posted the very first BA song off his very first album, pretty much sarcastically, as it made me want to throw on some daisy dukes, roller skates and bop up and down my street chewing bubble gum and dancing, well I was wrong, it wasn't his first song, this one is, and guess what? it's a million times better then his old first song, I even got the disco remix, this is pure hilarity, I couldn't stop laughing after hearing this, and like his other first song, this has a mind tormentingly catchy beat to it, caution it will lure you in and get you, also, some company out of Canada BA deals with hunts uploads of this song down with intensity, anyone that gets uploaded to YouTube generally is caught by it's bots on the UL, if not that company snags it within a couple days, so I had to upload an artist who has a similar name and his song that also has a similar name, lets see how long we can keep this up there, and why the fuck does that company care if it's out there? that's almost Nancy Drew script material, very fucking odd, anyway, when your done laughing,, lets hear your thoughts.  
    • err just to make this absolutely clear - this is not coming from me.  And that is not a panic stricken website it is the official UK government website with comments directly from our health secretary ffs you do what u like. at 30 odd years old yes your risk is prob negligible. At nearly 51 I would be far greater risk category even being fit for my age. And as for my parents they would prob die sadly. both have had their yearly flu jab so that risk in minor in comparison - for covid there is no treatment or vaccine. Comparing the two is quite frankly bollocks. so I continue to be careful and prudent  but I am not living my life in fear thank you very much and I am not doom mongering
