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.

    • I always refer back to Bernie Mac's line from the Kings of Comedy tour: "Jokes is jokes." We can't get too offended over comedy. Comedy has always been critical. It's always meant to make us feel uncomfortable in certain ways. It's always meant to challenge our way of thinking.   
    • Cherish The Day - Sade
    • Hopefully some sort of Live package with a CD/Blu Ray like Pretty Maids did with their recent Japan release. I'd even hazard a guess as to it being the Oct 27, 2019 show in Milan, Italy since it seems like Frontiers often captures those Italian shows....but that's just a blind guess. Either way, I'd probably pick this up if it's a decent package.  
    • Let me clarify: I don't mean to imply that it's open season or a free-for-all when it comes to posting racist, sexist, or homophobic comments. Rather I mean that I'm not about to ban someone or censor their posts because they make a joke about women, white people, black people, etc. Some self-restraint is expected, and if I see things getting out of hand, I reserve the right to prune content accordingly.
    • I'm Ok with all of that. I don't agree with open slater on homophobia, racism, etc, etc, but I'm not going to get updet about it. The tolerance shown on this board has actually been really impressive considering the topics. But it's your board and as you say, your rules. That said, I'm going to try and create some music topic over the next few days. I don't care if they have been done before, or are kinda lame, would be nice to not have to think so hard when I'm here
    • Can't say I would want to see HH become a politically correct forum....there is enough of that shit around....
    • Press release from Target Records: The spirit of the great eighties, captured in the modern studio. That is the essence of Danish rock group BOYS FROM HEAVEN. The band, captivated by the sound of the late seventies and early eighties – with stadium rockers like Toto and Journey – write, record and perform epic and grandiose rock music featuring the likes of lush vocal harmonies, wide piano, and synth hooks, fiery guitar solos and an oh-so-smooth alto saxophone. But the boys’ inspiration is not just confined to the era of reverb and Ray-Bans. Traces of the classic rock sound, pioneered by bands like The Who, are also present in the septet’s signature song DNA. All this is encompassed in the band’s debut album, “The Great Discovery”. The band has decided to produce the album themselves, with lead vocalist Chris Catton spearheading the process as mixing engineer, and the results speak for themselves: a sound with the audacity of a record written in the 1980s, and the punch of an album produced in 2020. Boys From Heaven is the best of both worlds: whimsical and witty, yet technically skilled. Rock’n’roll, yet soft and soulful. All this coming from a band only in their 20s. The release of the EP “No Way! But Anyway”put Boys From Heaven on the map in 2017, and in the two years that have followed since the band has gone on to perform at several well-established venues and festivals, such as Musikhuset Posten in Odense and Kløften Festivalin Haderslev, as well as the one day festival Skodborg Parkrock, with over 3.000 festival-goers. There, the band performed alongside several famous artists, among others Danish rock giants Gnags. The boys also made it to the final of the Tak Rock Band Battle 2018, held at the esteemed DR Concert House in Copenhagen, and gathered massive plays in national Danish radio along the way. Come 2020 and, after a dominating performance at festival Nordic Noise 2020 – Streaming For Vengeance, the Boys From Heaven secured a record deal with Target Records, for the release of their debut album. “The Great Discovery” will be released in digital, CD, and vinyl formats by Target Records (Mike Tramp, The Savage Rose) on October 23rd, 2020.   Tracklist: 01. The Ascent 02. Green Fields 03. Sunshine Soul 04. Burning Like A Flame 05. A Fool’s Hope 06. Keep On Movin’ 07. Memory 08. Only Child 09. Convictions 10. Old Days 11. Don’t You Cry 12. Worlds Apart 13. Smile
    • Cute spin on the song name... I'm guessing a live album.
    • Ok, this is where I step in. I absolutely will not tolerate politically correct outrage here. Jokes about men, women, Republican, Democrat, liberal, conservative, gay, straight, short, tall, skinny, fat, Christian, Muslim, Hindu, agnostic, atheist, black, latino, asian, white, etc. are ALL welcome here. If you find someone or something "offensive" then don't read their content or the thread in question, or feel free to go elsewhere. Your being personally offended doesn't mean others have to change their behavior. You have the choice to go somewhere else. I will NOT see HH fall victim to the outrage mob mentality so prevalent today. My house. My rules.
    • New album out November 6th through Frontiers. More info to come...
