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.

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.

Will be totally on my own here but it has to be The Truth And A Little More.

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.

That's why I love this board and all it's differing opinions!

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.

Would anyone have changed their vote to the new album?

    • Dunno him...but it says this person is legendary  couldn't even be bothered to google the name.
    • Yeah, and with the January releases by H.e.a.t, Passion & GOK it looks like the new year is going off with a bang 
    • Hopefully a very nice start to the new year. I'm looking forward to it. 
    • Yeah, I remember the dude from LSD. I don't know about his life after LSD, but seems an odd choice as a first choice producer (even odder after hearing this album).  And yeah, I've never heard the other name either. I'm thinking, after this, that's for a very, very, very, VERY good reason. 
    • I've never seen Def Leppard or Poison, so their set lists would still be fresh to me. Poison only play 8 songs, though? That's soft. I have friends who have seen Def Leppard on recent visits to Australia and they also said they were still very good.  Anyway, I don't for a second think this'll make it to Aussie shores.  I have seen Motley Crue a few years back (possibly on one of their last ever Aussie shows - one of them...). I enjoyed it 'cause I had great seats and I just loved seeing them, but Vince's every 10th word left a little to be desired. 
    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527
