Posted those for Glen!

let's get high is the same subject matter as Tomorrow Night.

but that's where the comparison ends. 

Tomorrow night is an awesome melodic rock song with clever lyrics , killer riff, and solo.

new song unfortunately isn't. 

I guess it is better than the singles, tho that's not saying much ;)

as for the other song. Zzz zzz.

seriously I just put on Balls Out.

Some of those songs are pure brilliance.

Gold Digging Whore basically anhiallates this whole album on its own

what a tune :bowdown:

I'm very lukewarm on it. It's not terrible, imo, but there's very few keepers on it. :( Only two, in fact. 'Always Gonna Be a Ho' is a very cool tune, and up with usual standards. Sadly, the rockers aren't really. But I do also like the closing ballad, 'Ain't Buying What You're Selling.' Not amazing, but a cool enough tune. Wish there were more good tunes though...

I haven't got to this yet.
mainly because I have no real drive to get to it.
Always Gonna Be A Ho I've seen and like.
Heavy Metal Rules I saw today and hated (except for the eye candy in the clip)

Not sure what all the sooking is about.
I called it a few years ago - they should have done a more serious album while they got it together properly for a new novelty album.
But the novelty was always going to wear off.
For me I still find a few nice tunes, but less and less off each album as time moves on.

Nah mate, it's not that at all, imo. If these songs on the new album had generic lyrics, you seriously think they'd be better than they are? Has nothing to do with the lyrics for me. Sadly, the songs just aren't very good at the moment, but I still have hope they can turn it around. I love that they stick to their guns because the fans (and there are plenty) love it. They just need to find their groove again when they were writing killer tune after killer tune.

The rut I see them in is basically being controlled by the subject matter.
I guess to a degree they are stifled with Ralph's voice. He doesn't have much variety in his vocals.
But yeah, they'd need to try some diversity to the msuic for it to be more worthwhile (either smutty songs, of 'proper' songs)
But I'd say they are simply following the formula.
I guess we all need to remember that this is their income source, and if people are buying, they need to keep the dollars coming in.
Most people on this forum is pretty discerning and have high expectations.
A lot of the meat heads out there will be happy to hear some four letter words and dirty lyrics.

I just don't think they're any more restricted or confined than any other artist with their subject matters. 

If these songs were good catchy songs on the new album, the lyrics would be totally fine with me. But my brain is beef mince, so maybe that explains why. ;)

I just think they've stopped writing catching clever songs. It's all pretty lame basic banal stuff now.

I don't mind the repetition and as Geoff mentions if SP could still spin a yarn like in the past then they'd still be appreciated by the likes of us.

We talked about it but it seems like some of the stuff is phoned in and just doesn't have the same edge or doesn't resonate like previous tunes.

    • Earth, Wind & Fire are one of my all-time favourite bands, and the only album I ever owned, for the longest time, was The Essential Earth, Wind & Fire. Not the genre you were probably hoping to discuss, but it was the first one that came to mind. 
    • New song 'Games We Play'. Not bad. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the upcoming release of "Brothers In Arms", the new Sunstorm album, the second to feature new lead vocalist Ronnie Romero (Michael Schenker, Lords of Black). Romero’s debut album with Sunstorm, “Afterlife” was released in early 2021 and showcased a rejuvenation of Sunstorm's previous musical formula, mixing Melodic Rock/AOR with more '70s oriented hard rock, ala Rainbow (for which Romero performed as singer). That recipe is perfected on "Brothers In Arms" with new guitarist Luca Princiotta (Doro, Blaze) joining the lineup of Romero, bassist Nik Mazzucconi, drummer Michele Sanna, and keyboardist Alessandro Del Vecchio.  Prior to the writing and recording of 2021's "AfterLife", in discussions with producer and songwriter Alessandro Del Vecchio it was decided that moving the musical style of the next Sunstorm album to the more melodic AOR sound of the early records was what everyone wanted. Romero, with his powerful vocal style, was the ideal fit to deliver the goods for the music. "Afterlife", the then new Sunstorm album, caught many in the melodic rock fanbase by surprise as it, for obvious reasons, arrived with a lot of history and expectations. But for his first foray into melodic hard rock territory, Romero delivered outstanding results on “Afterlife” and you are in for a threat on this new album which offers elements of the more melodic sound of Rainbow and Deep Purple mixed with the sound of Foreigner and Classic Melodic Rock. "To anyone who likes the brand of heavy and power metal frequently displayed by the likes of Jorn Lande and Magnus Karlsson, or anyone who likes their AOR bigger and heavier, this is made to order." - Sonic Perspectives "“Afterlife” stands pretty tall in its own right, and Ronnie Romero stands as tall as he ever has." - Metal Temple "I can't help but think that the addition of Ronnie Romero on vocals and a batch of songs that are both fast paced and melodically driven has helped to pump a new energy into the project. Afterlife shows that there is still plenty of life in SUNSTORM!" - KNAC.com After the warm reception to "Afterlife", it was quickly decided that a follow-up was in order and thus in the latter half of 2021 and into early 2022, "Brothers In Arms" was crafted. For those who enjoyed the previous release, prepare for another sonic delight!  Tracklisting: 1.    Brothers In Arms 2.    Games We Play 3.    I’ll Keep Holding On 4.    I Will Remember 5.    No Turning Back 6.    Back My Dreams 7.    Taste Of Heaven 8.    Lost In The Shadows Of Love 9.    Hold The Night 10.    Miracle 11.    Living Out Of Fear Line-Up: Ronnie Romero - Vocals Luca Princiotta - Guitars Alessandro Del Vecchio - Keyboards, backing vocals Nik Mazzucconi - Bass Michele Sanna - Drums
