I've seen quite a bit of positive commentary on this album on the forum. Sadly, I don't feel any of the adoration for it at all that y'all are feeling. The title track is a pretty cool tune, but sadly, after that, it's more or less and trainwreck... to me. ;)

Seeing praise for this and the woeful Unruly Child album makes me wonder if people are letting their standards drop in a low quality year, favouring weak albums because there's little alternative?

Gotta agree with Geoff, this and Unruly Child are not very good to my ears....in other words crap but as always to each their own...

I could say the same here and question other peoples taste. This album is fucking awesome.

To each their own, but to try to say I am dropping my standards because I like something someone else doesn't is frankly insulting.

I’m going to agree with Peter and Captain that this is a great album and has nothing to do with the current state of music. But to call it crap is stupid if you ever like Enuff  Z Nuff this as good or better than everything since Strength.

Bottom line is everyone’s musical tastes are different but I can agree the new Unruly Child is forgettable.

For the record, I really like the first three Enuff Z' Nuff albums and even '1985' has some good stuff on it too. 

But! I think this album is terrible. ;)

So I guess I'm stupid. :)

And yes, the new Unruly Child is dogs balls.

So sorry for the stupid comment. What I was trying to imply if you use to like EZN then not sure how you don’t like the new Donnie album.

But yeah to each their own.

Haha. Honestly doesn't bother me one bit. You don't need to worry about stuff like that. Tell me I have a penis for a face, the music taste of a bleeding ass and the IQ of a christian. You won't offend me, friend. ;)

Like I was saying, though, to be honest, I don't see how this is any way at all better than when EZN's discography started to go downhill. In fact, I'm pretty sure I'd find at least a few songs from all those weak albums that is as "good" as the stuff on this one. 

Completely on board with "to each their own" but you guys have really lost me on this one, and how/why this album is any better than all those bad EZN albums. To me they died after 'Animals with human intelligence' (despite arguably their best song of all being on '1985') - 'I'll B the 1 2 Luv U.'

    • Ridiculous. Wait until you see the kids one I'm talking about. Appallingly untruthful.
    • Carpenter Brut - Leather Terror (Synthwave) Disturbed - Divisive (Metal) Matthew Ward - Armed and Dangerous (AOR) Atomic Swing - A Car Crash in the Blue (Power Pop) Red - End of Silence (Symphonic Metal) Todd Rundgren's Utopia - S/T (Prog Rock) Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition (Southern Rock)
    • Only caught the highlights, but man, that second goal the Aussies conceded was pure pain to watch. Still cringing just thinking about it. Shame, because otherwise they had a brilliant tournament. It would have been close to a miracle for them to get past Argentina, so I look at the team and their efforts with pride. Oh, and that last minute shot the Aussie dude had... what could have been. But yeah, they gave it a really good crack. As for my Plan B, sorry 'Mericans, but I was very happy to see the mighty Dutch get through and, as per every other world cup, lol, my interest now turns to seeing what they can do. Would actually really love to see them win the thing.  Oh, and speaking of stuff, how awesome were some of the goals from Switzerland in their match vs Serbia. Very impressive. 
    • Simple sound quality / production, but sounds nice. 
    • Nice. Yeah, I don't know mate. Of the songs I posted above, the two from the second album actually seem to be better sound quality than the first. Hard to say if that's across the board, though, or if the sound varies from demo to demo. 
    • I was trying to find the ad running here too, but also couldn't find it on the web. Some moronic thing about there being a new wave or strain or something so we should all wear masks indoors and crowded spaces. We even got a note from our school the other day that in order to go and watch a Christmas assembly the kids are doing, parents will be required to wear a mask now, because of an alleged surge of cases in the local area.  What's become blatantly obvious to me in the last few years is that we are communicated to as if we're all absolute morons. Whether it's via our government or the media, we are spoken to like braindead pieces of shit. Sadly, in many cases they're spot on, hitting their target audience. But as someone with some semblance of a brain (and not even much of it, to be fair), I just simply don't get it. 
    • Yeah, price of tickets. I just saw half priced tickets on Tuesdays for a limited time here too. I don't know what full prices are, but maybe they're only a couple of hundred dollars on Tuesdays.
    • I like it. To bad it’s just a digital and cassette release.
    • Doing you meaning Kent is the vocalist version of ADV.
