Should be pretty good.

I don't care much for that Blue Virgin Isles tunes though.  I know it's a cover but just doesn't do anything for me.

The rest should be pretty solid though.

Yeah, I like the new tune too.

Looking like it will be a good disc being that we've heard most of it.  I've really not listened to any of the tunes released more than a couple times though so it'll all be pretty fresh for me when it does come out.

I'd preorder this but haven't really seen it anywhere yet except on digital outlets.  And I'm not buying digital lol.  Guessing it'll start showing up soon.

I got mine pre-ordered on cd from Amazon in the UK...and only £11 with free postage because I ordered the new Santa Cruz also...hopefully they don't let me down with it :whistle:

Looking forward to this but that Blue Virgin Isles song is  animation character GIF by Squirlart

 

Agree on that.  I don't like that tune much at all and am pretty positive it'll be an easy skip.  That should've just been a japan bonus track or something.  Or at the very least like the 12th song on the album instead of chucked in the middle. 

Rest looking good though and will be picking this up for sure.

Just bumping as a reminder this is out 11/15 since this band seems to generally fly pretty under the radar.

Expecting this to be pretty good outside of that Blue Virgin Isles track....

Listening today....pretty good.  

Couple annoying moments with the Intro and Interlude....both kinda pointless.  The Interlude is more annoying to me as it just breaks up things that are flowing along well.  So it's really a 10 track album.  And for me Blue Virgin Isles is horribly boring...So for me it's really a 9 track album.

The rest is all pretty solid though.  It starts out kinda with the heavy side of Degreed and seems to get more commercial as it goes along.  

Initially, I think my early standouts are Lost Generation, Summer Of Love and Body Of Work.  Lost Generation is a pretty melodic type rocker, Summer of Love kind of a throwback mild melodic rocker and Body of Work just feels like typical Degreed with poppy and heavy elements blended together.

Overall, feels maybe a bit more commercial than their previous efforts and can't say it's overly blowing me away.  At the same time though still good and some worthy additions to their catalog.

Digging this tune.  Has about a 1 min 40 sec intro included here that is separate on the album.

Brilliant song,and such a good album,really liking it apart from the intro/interlude thing...even the Blue Virgin Isle track which seems to have an emotional attachment of somekind to the band like theyre looking back on good times gone by just like Ruins.

A definite top 5 for me

yeah I'm diggin it. As said Blue Virgin Isles is an odd song and doesn't quite fit imo....much preferred it when they covered Steve Perry ;)

but really why have a cover song at all? 

lovin some of these tracks tho.

Born under a bad sign , while not one of the rockiest songs my favorite so far.

 

Blue Virgin Isles most skippable.

    • Everyone's heard Maiden's cover of the Skyhoos song women In Uniform. Came across this one of Horror Movie, which is also pretty cool.    
    • From Frontiers: Stardust, a Hungarian melodic rock/AOR band, will release their much anticipated debut full-length on October 9, 2020. One of the hottest new AOR bands to come out of the underground European scene, Stardust's independently released self-titled debut EP stirred up quite a buzz in the underground melodic rock scene. The band were put to the attention of Frontiers' staff during one of the Frontiers Rock Festivals. Impressed with the band's melodic rock stylings on their debut EP, Frontiers moved swiftly to sign the band to the roster. Of the band's sound, vocalist Adam Stewart says, "We love Def Leppard, Winger, Journey and all the 80's stuff..So, we took those influences and mixed it in with our own 'Stardust' way of doing things. " Of notable mention is that none other than the mighty Mark Spiro (Bad English, House of Lords, Giant) and Swedish guitar hero Tommy Denander helped the guys with songwriting and production for their debut album. "One day I got a note from Mark Spiro! He wrote, 'Hey man, I found a good song that you would really love, what do you think?' I immediately listened to the song and it blew my mind! '2nd Hand Love' is a typical Spiro song with a magical atmosphere and a catchy chorus. I jumped right on it and made a new, modern kinda musical arrangement for the song. A riff centered verse, a bluesy chorus and a brand new intro part," explains Stewart of first single, '2nd Hand Love'. “Our first EP got really good feedback from the fans, not only from Hungary, but from around the world,” says Stewart. “I am certain that our debut album will be enjoyed by even more melodic rock fans thanks to our new cooperation with Frontiers. Stardust plays AOR/Melodic Rock with catchy melodies and lyrics, so Frontiers is truly a perfect home for us!" Founded by two friends, Adam Stewart (lead vocals) and Tim Keeley (drums) in 2015, the band is rounded out by Facey (lead guitar and vocals), Dave Legrand (keyboard), and Ben Martin (bass and vocals). The group's style is an amalgam of the classic melodic hard rock and AOR genres, with hooky choruses, beautiful keyboards, vocal harmonies, and loud guitars in the style of their favorite mid-80's bands, bringing to life this well beloved music in the 21st century. Stardust is the latest in a long line of amazing AOR/Melodic Rock signings for the label, so be sure to stay tuned as they are truly a rising star in the melodic rock scene. Line-up: Adam Stewart - Vocals, rhythm guitars Ben Martin - Bass Dave Legrand - Keyboards Facey - Guitars Tim Keeley - Drums   Tracklist: 1. Runaway 2. Heartbreaker 3. Bullet To My Heart 4. Perfect Obsession 5. 2nd Hand Love 6. Shout It Out 7. Can’t Stop Loving You 8. Eye To Eye 9. Hey Mother 10. Blue Jeans Eyes (Bonus Track) 11. The River Is Rollin’

    • Why is it that I picture Cody walking around his neighborhood in a trench coat and gumboots? Speaking of pictures, did you not have your phone with you? You really dropped the ball on that one mate. The next time this occurs I expect full video footage accompanied by a "meet the cast" video extra.  Don't let us down again! You're better than that.  
    • I would've watched I would've asked to join the fun as well...
    • Of course you'd watch any anyone who says otherwise is being untruthful.  Out of curiosity, did you romanticise yourself as you watched? 
    • Agree about Nirvana (liking them, that is).
    • Always liked Nirvana even though most people on this forum blame them for the grunge wave.....also I don't mind occasionally listening to Johnny Cash and Gordon Lightfoot....
