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

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.

    • THE OFFSPRING – Let the Bad Times Roll (2021) April 12, 2021     from various sopurces: Working with mega producer Bob Rock (Metallica, Mötley Crüe, Bon Jovi) THE OFFSPRING are back next week with their new album ”Let The Bad Times Roll”: twelve tracks that are drenched with shades of their previous offerings, while delivering a vibrant modern sound that’s seen the title track ‘Let The Bad Times Roll’ elevated to high rotation on rock radio with its commercial polish, while keeping the attitude of the band intact. With ”Let The Bad Times Roll” The Offspring provide a refreshing soundtrack to your own personal apocalypse. Sugar-coating nothing with a satisfyingly merry acknowledgment that everything currently sucks, this is the perfect album to crank the volume on when you’re content just to watch the world burn for a day… Returning to their signature blend of jovial rock n’ pop-punky with a cheeky twist, the album kicks off without foreplay. “This Is Not Utopia,” a rhythmically palpitating opener led by power chords and gang chants, denounces modern-day America from being the Promised Land it monikers itself to be. It might seem a curious move from a band that doesn’t consider itself political, but it sets the tone perfectly for what follows. The title track and lead single, “Let the Bad Times Roll” is a near-perfect return to form. Its aggressive, guitar stabbing verses coupled with its poppy, acoustic-based chorus, and weighty lyrical undertones make it a perfect fit for the playlist to Satan’s spin class. And yet, the lazy fade-out that tags on to the end of the song is unforgivable, rendering its built-up momentum impotent. One of the most enjoyable things about ‘Let the Bad Times Roll’ is every member is clearly heard, feels completely present, and sounds wholly invested. Even on the reimagined Offspring milestone” Gone Away”, stripped back to a piano and vocal rendition with hints of strings that is as beautiful as it is haunting. A result in no small part due to another return from legendary producer, Bob Rock (Metallica, Motley Crue), who clearly knows what fans want to hear on a great Offspring record. Traits such as the dynamic duo of vocalist Dexter Holland and guitarist Noodles being a sonic force throughout. Especially evident on more moving numbers such as “Behind Your Walls,” which sees Holland cater to the verse with a seldom heard, lower register to his vocal delivery. Again with “Coming for You”, which is brought to life by drummer Pete Padara and newcomer Todd Morse on bass. Morse makes a great impression on this record, particularly on what is sure to become an instant Offspring classic, the satirically, and joyously depressing, “We Don’t Have Sex Anymore”. Led by a bass line that sounds like a nod to The Cure’s “Lovecats”, everything about this piece, from the horn section to the playful piano and painful, yet hilarious storytelling delivered by Holland, catapults this tale of sexless woe into the stratosphere. The album’s standout track, it achieves its own kind of happy ending, even if no one else does. Despite what it might initially allude to, ‘Let the Bad Times Roll’ is not the overtly political statement it might suggest itself be. The narrative is one of reflections, not criticisms, observations as opposed to opinions, while musically the energy, thankfully, is as dynamic as ever. A fun and entertaining shot for this lock down era. Tracklist: 01 – This Is Not Utopia 02 – Let The Bad Times Roll 03 – Behind Your Walls 04 – Army Of One 05 – Breaking These Bones 06 – Coming For You 07 – We Never Have Sex Anymore 08 – In The Hall Of The Mountain King 09 – The Opioid Diaries 10 – Hassan Chop 11 – Gone Away 12 – Lullaby Dexter Holland – lead and backing vocals, guitar Noodles – guitar Pete Parada – drums Todd Morse – bass guitar Bob Rock – producer, mixing, engineer   Pre order: www.target.com/p/the-offspring-let-the-bad-times-roll-target-exclusive-cd/-/A-82383162 theoffspring.concordrecords.com/products/the-offspring-let-the-bad-times-roll-cd/
    • I'd rather you go to the "I Love Geoff Tate" forum and post all you want there.  
    • Think I should post about Sweet Oblivion in the prog rock and metal section ? It’s difficult to categorize this great music !
    • People can do whatever they want with their own fiction, it's the people who subscribe to it that are weeding each other out, sadly some of us who dont, are also caught in the crossfire
    • I love the music. The vocals....... not so much. I agree musically it sounds like FarCry but a drastic change in vocal style. Maybe it will grow on me.
    • Never even knew this existed until today. Vinyl only release limited to 500 copies. Band was still in Canada at this time before moving to the US. Anyone ever heard this? April 12, 2021     Now very rare, this was a limited 500 copies – vinyl only – press via Precision Records. This was the time when the band rocked in their native Canada before moving to USA. Musically, they were much more raw, with a glam punky sleazy sound which was instantly adored by headbangers for their adrenaline charged, wasted tunes like “Nuclear Attack”, “I Do What I Want” and “Here Comes The Night”. Almost impossible to find vinyl. Tracklist: 01 – Here Comes The Night 02 – She’s So Pretty 03 – Everybody’s Gonna Have A Real Good Time 04 – I’ll Do What I Want 05 – Oh Love 06 – Nuclear Attack 07 – I Was Gonna Ron Sweetheart Collie – lead vocals Jeff Campbell – guitar, vocals Michael Lotimer – bass, vocals Peter Lotimer – drums, vocals   Out of print
