No comment... 

 

No comment because you don't like it? I like that quite a lot. I have a feeling I'll be enjoying this album by myself, but I'm really enjoying what I'm hearing so far. 

One thing I'll say is the musicianship doesn't sound to me as good/tight as it was with the old band. Not bad, but a more "standard" sound compared to the well oiled machine they were before. 

But yeah, I dig this song plenty.

Bon Jovi anyone? But I'm with Geoff, I like it. Needs some crazy motherfucking shredding though.

The vocals sound a little muffled, but sounds like a cross between Bon Jovi and Reckless Love, which is no bad thing.

I really like this song.

Nope, I can almost guarantee this is gonna appeal to me. I don't think its gonna be good as self titled, but so far I have liked what I have heard.

I've come across the Bon Jovi comparison a few times now, on here as well as Youtube and Instagram. Which Bon Jovi era / song are you referring to?

Pales when compared to the Loud And Clear song of the same name.

I think it may be a reference to the opening part...it sorta sounds like "its my life"...faintly...very very faintly?

It's My Life. With a hint of Poison by Alice Cooper in the chorus. :D

I can hear elements of both of these in the second song as well and while it is better than the first song still pales in comparison to Screaming for Adrenaline, in my opinion

yes it's miles worse than all those bands eh??

imo half decent but as previously stated by a few others both tunes so far are a way off previous output and one wonders if they should even have kept the Santa Cruz name.

That I totally agree on. Does not sound like Santa Fucking Cruz at all.

In the grand scheme of things (their back catalog), this is a very average song.

But I still kinda diggit, for what it's worth.

Nope.

But in all seriousness, it's so different to those bands that it's not really apples with apples to compare these bands. Too dissimilar. 

In, my opinion.

Again, that's not a straight comparison either. 

Better than early Bon Jovi? No. Better than Bon Jovi from 1996 onwards? For the most part, yes. By a long way.

Better than early Poison? Nope. Better than Poison after 1994? Hell yes. 

Better than 'Trash' or 'Hey Stoopid?' Nope. Better than the rest of Alice Cooper's entire discography? Hell yes. 

Better than Reckless Love? Too hard to say based on a couple of tunes, but I'd say Santa Cruz and Reckless Love are pretty similarly placed bands in the overcall scheme of things?

Can't say until the new album drops, but I don't think they're fading. They're chugging along quite nicely for me. Just a shame "they" is not really "they" anymore.

    • Okay but not overly exciting me initially.  It's a well done tune but just wish it had a little more bite or edge or something. Reminds me a bit of Perfect Plan style-wise. Keeping eyes on this though.  Would like to hear a few more songs. 
    • Anyone else getting their face slapped around by this one? In the past they've been pretty standard metalcore type stuff with all screams and not much else. This album, however, has some really cool and catchy metal tunes on it.  Here's a few of my faves;          
    • The last few comments are basically where it's at. It's really not a bad album. I like 'Idiots,' 'In the maze,' 'We are the legion,' 'Parasite' and 'Waiting for your love.' And none of the rest is terrible... though not great. I guess stuff like this is probably the future for the band. Just one of the crowd, rather than the genre leaders they were with the debut and 'Generation Wild.' Nice solid album, but they're not the band they used to be.  
    • Wow, you're certainly one of the younger members here. I think Karpetface turned 9 this year, but after him, you're the next youngest!  Welcome aboard and yes, pretty impressive to see someone so young into this type of music. Do your parents listen to this style of music? Interested in how you got into it in the first place. 
    • So after listening to this a bit more I can agree that there are some good songs here but as already pointed out the production is pretty poor  It pretty much ruins it , Bang bang being the most obvious example for me  Good song but the production on that one is horrendous
    • They released a new album called 'Love Letter Kill Shot' a couple of months ago. Gotta give it to them, they're consistent. If you like what they do, you'll like plenty about the new album. No bad songs and a whole lot of solid-ness.    1    .    Cuff the Criminal 2    .    Reanimate 3    .    Wake Up 4    .    Panic Room (feat. Andrew Schwab) 5    .    Play to Win 6    .    Fire Away 7    .    Misery 8    .    Chemical Wisdom 9    .    Never Too Late 10    .    Touch of Pain 11    .    Walk With Me 12    .    Best Thing Ever     My favourite tune is;    
    • I was just thinking back to a comment I made in April when I first heard a sample from the album. As per above, I was under the impression that the other three guys maintained the band name and that they had a new vocalist. Stefan quickly pointed out it was the other way around and that Archie was the only remaining member. But funny how I didn't recognise him at first listen, and after a few spins of the full album, I still struggle to believe how it's the same guy. I know it is, but man, what a change. 
    • I have to agree, listening to this felt like a chore (despite the short 38 min run time). Especially towards the end cause most passable tracks are around the middle part of the record.
