What is the best Eclipse release in your opinion?

Folks can wait until the new disc is released to vote but we can discuss our opinions in the meantime. 

I've always loved "Are You Ready To Rock", especially the remixed one.

Last 3 are interchangeable, but went with Monumentum

After the first two releases...which were iffy at the least imo...the release of Are You Ready To Rock? grabbed my attention ten fold and thus my liking for Eclipse was born,don't think any of the last few releases have disappointed...all pretty damn good but i'll stick with what caught me in the first place   :)

Armageddonize for me.  I just like every song on it and it feels pretty varied to me.  The Storm and Wide Open are just awesome tunes.

Bleed & Scream and Monumentum bother very good too.  Bleed & Scream has a few songs in the second half though that just don't do much for me.

Based upon samples I've heard, I'm feeling like the new one will probably fall behind the last 3 albums but maybe I'll change my mind after hearing it all.

Are Your Ready To Rock got me into the band and has remained my favorite from them.  While their last 3 albums have all been very good, each release after Are You Ready has been a slight step down, for me.  They've seemed to stick a little too close to the same formula and by the time I heard Monumentum it started to feel a little like been there done that.   Based on these first two promo tracks I'm figuring this will be another slight step down.

  1. Are You Ready to Rock
  2. Bleed and Scream
  3. Armageddonize
  4. Monumentum

yep, agree with all you said... Monumentum felt like a step backwards from those previous 3.

Are You Ready to Rock (remix).

They've been rehashing those songs ever since.

the last three albums have been great but v unoriginal. I did love Monumentum - that would be 2nd for me with Bleed & Scream a close 3rd.

The new album samples sound worryingly weak but hoping it will be good.

The simple answer is I don't know, but if I consult my trusted ratings, I rate them this way;

1. Monumentum

2. Bleed & Scream

3. Armageddonize

4. Are You Ready To Rock

5. The Truth & A Little More

6. Second To None

Worth noting that the first two are pretty much rated identically, so either of those two will do.

Armageddonize, despite blood enemies. One life - my life was the song that inspired me to make a list in list.ly with my favorite closers (doesn't have to be my favorite track of the album).

Agreed. Also agree that with each release, they seem to take a slight step back. Still solid stuff but a little samey.

The Truth And A Little More, cause I got it when it came out, then I never paid attention again until I heard Unbreakable, blew my fucking mind it was even the same group, they got way heavier, but my fav is I'll Be There.

    • Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time. Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer.  Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (ONJFoundationFund.org). Olivia is survived by her husband John Easterling; daughter Chloe Lattanzi; sister Sarah Newton-John; brother Toby Newton-John; nieces and nephews Tottie, Fiona and Brett Goldsmith; Emerson, Charlie, Zac, Jeremy, Randall, and Pierz Newton-John; Jude Newton-Stock, Layla Lee; Kira and Tasha Edelstein; and Brin and Valerie Hall. - via John Easterling, husband, Olivia Newton-John
    • Good stuff....missed it first time around.....
    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through  
    • New single pretty blah to me.  It's ok I guess but no desire to add that to a playlist or re-listen. These guys feel like a band that's underachieved a bit to me with their new music in the past 20 years or so after starting off so well with their first 3-4 albums.  Yeah, there's been some good songs here and there but they just really haven't gotten near the quality of those early albums.
