So they actually released an album in 2017 as well? Or just the single?
I heard the new album and that was definitely a once-only occasion. Really, really bad album. As you suggest, I have no idea what their intention with this album is. But it's awful.
I need a few more spins, but first spin was pretty underwhelming. I do believe this album has a strong debut album vibe. Problem is, the songs are a lot weaker than the debut. There's just some stuff that doesn't need to be on here that makes a lot of the songs worse. I've been meaning to check the liner notes of their albums, but I assume Leppard and the previous vocalist were both prolific in terms of song writing?
I think I have actually heard that before. It's not a brand new song or anything, ay? It's bad but I've become a bit numb in recent years to monstrously horrible songs. A part of my weekday routine now is playing three pop/kids songs in the car on the way to/from daycare/school for my kids; specially selected by them.
Are you talking about schlongs? No one matches my 2.5 inch anaconda.
I'll wait for a full album until I compare this to Harnell-fronted TNT, but I will say with 100% conviction that this album will be better than any TNT album without Harnell. Light years better.
Use that as a good excuse to avoid the album. It's shit. 'All Angels Have Gone' and 'A call from the inside' are the only tunes I like. Even 'Hellfire' didn't scrub up so well on the full length cassette tape. A lot of weak songs on this one...
