Yeah, when she enters the elevator at the end is the start of "When the Heartache is Gone."

Liking this a lot,aye it may seem a bit generic to some but it just sounds like Rev Saints doing what they always do,no bad thing,and as stated Doug is on fire...maybe too many ballads but they do em so well  :)

Id love to see a definition of generic 

Pretty much I would assume that if you are a fan of 80s melodic rock (which we all are yeah?) then you should pretty much love this album.

Nothing wrong with generic for me.
I love generic, as within that I find the gems.
biggest problem I have with many bands these days is samey music.
Revolutiions Saints are one of those bands. Just all has the same vibe to it.
I'd prefer if bands like this change it up a bit, bring in some different insturments, completely change the vocals etc.
If it doesn't work, then at least it breaks up the rest of the music.
Just my 2c

I've found nothing compelling about it. Nothing wrong with it but nothing really memorable.

to each their own I guess.

At the end of the day I love Journey and this just comes across as a ballsy journey album to me

Yeah id agree with that,in fact that's just sums up Rev Saints in a nutshell for me.

Good solid album. Not completely in love with it, but it's better than the last album. I like what they're doing and don't want them to change it up, but I do agree it's a little samey and one-dimensional by the end of another album. But they do good things so it's cool. Favourite song is the opener. No real significant duds on the album either.

Haha, was just relaxing and put youtube on the tv and it started playing random stuff.

New HS clip came on "Talk To me"

Nothing like most of the rest of their stuff.
Different temps, different vibe, some female vocals etc

Listened to the start of this a few times before I've got distracted and only had the remainder of the album on in the background.
First 2 songs are killer
Rise is ok, nothing special
Love that Coming Home has a whole different vibe and sound.

I think this will easily be my favorite release from them.

This new album is great in the 80% range although RS has that weird  low replay value.

I mean, after one full spin, you will want to store this album in a shelf and maybe pull it out after 3-4 months for another spin

Anybody feels the same way ?

Yeah, I do.
Hard to put their sings on a mix. Maybe a few real stand outs that can stand alone.
That said, I have hope for this new album.
Production is a lot better, a bit cleaner and not every song is slotted into the same mould.

I like to listen to their sings in order.

    • Agree with the above - it's a cool release. As is being alluded to, it's not a belt-the-walls-down classic, but it's a good solid album and a cut above good. I like it. 
    • Oh man, thought this was going to be something new and my heart skipped a beat or three. Loved their last output too and would absolutely love something new. 
    • Had these albums for an age and probably spun them a million times each, without ever really loving either. I loved 'High enough' and enjoyed how they covered it with different lyrics on the follow-up and called it 'Where you going now?' Two great songs, as is 'Silence is broken.' Apart from them, some of it was good ol' fashioned barnyard stompin' fun, but not really my jam if I'm being honest. I think 'Coming of age' flirted with my best of tapes, but far as I recall it was mostly just the aforementioned three that ever made the mix tapes.
    • Dug this out for a listen yesterday, fantastic EP, would like them to release some new music but they have gone quiet...        
    • Third one from The Strike cause they're just so good...  
    • Big, long memories for me for this one. I remember picking the tape of this and Vain's 'No Respect' up in a second hand music shop in Kempsey. I think I'd passed on this before because the kind of "industrial" looking front cover, but man did I love what I heard when I heard it. Don't love every single song on it, but the best are near flawless. If I had to pick a favourite I couldn't go past 'Waiting for love.' 
    • Great track from a great EP...  
    • Are these guys still a thing? 
    • Played some catchup and plowed through a handful of films. Class of '84 - Excellent! I am sure it will get WAAAAY to many Stranger Things comparison but for me it was more Goonies meets The Burbs, but regardless it was very well done. Toy Story 4 - Damn you Disney. Just damn you. This was another great Pixar/Disney pairing and the Toy Story is the GOAT of the combo. Really dug this one and the message is tear worthy. Well done. 3 From Hell - Bad ass, but many already knew this. So many character actors in this one and you got to love Barry Bostwick as the narrator. Coming 2 America - Yep the 2nd installment in the franchise and truth be told it ticked all the boxes and was quite watchable. Seemed that everyone from the 1st was back for number 2. Certainly worth an hour and a half. Boogie Nights - This was a guilty pleasure re-watch. Couldn't be helped and it is still a real good movie. Spree - Harmless little ditty with one of the teenagers from Stranger Things as a UBER/LYFT type driver that wants to be famous on the Youtube, so to get likes he starts killing folks, IE: "spree". Some funny bits and certainly not bad. The House That Jack Built - This was not bad either and had a lot of gory bits. Ran a little long and certainly didn't lack in the pretentious department, but apparently I am not hep and Lars Von Trier is.  
    • Ah yeah, I just realized that I called you wrong a few posts back. So take my previous post with a grain of salt. My views still stand about respect though.
