And then I was hooked for three months straight! : D

Yep. Two very different eras of the band IMO, the earlier material with Greg X. Volz on vocals, and the later John Schlitt material. My favorite albums as complete albums are the Elefante Brothers produced releases, Beyond Belief and Unseen Power. The earlier material has some great individual songs such as Grave Robber and The Colouring Song.

Yeah, I prefer John but Greg is good too. My favorite is hands down Back to the Street, but This Means War! & On Fire! are really great too 😁

I sorta grew up with it. My dad had a friend who would make mixtapes for my brother and I. The only bands I can recall on them were White Heart, some local band called Hokus Pick Manouver, and Petra. I guess my young ears preferred the heavier side of Rock.

The first full album I remember listening to was Wake Up Call; my brother got it for his birday. Then we got No Doubt in 1995, and I bought my first ever cassette that year, as well -- John Schlitt's "Shake," of course.

I was a Pet-head in my early years, but by the late 90s I stopped listening to them, as their sound changed. 

I'll bust out an album every now and then, but not too often; however, I catch myself singing their songs all the time. They've def left an impression I'll never shake, and, therefore, I consider them among my favourite bands.

Nice, I haven't exactly listened to everything, because I don't like how their sound changed later on either, and I prefer their harder stuff with John, Greg's a little bit more synthy, and I don't like that as much- it's not Petra to me. I'm collecting all albums from Back To The Street through Wake Up Call. I just need On Fire!, This Means War!, & Petra Praise: The Rock Cries Out. Then I'll be complete- but I want Beat The System too, once I'm done with collecting the John albums I want I'll listen to more of Greg's stuff.

Cool, I feel like you don't hear much about it but I could be wrong. You hear least about Back To The Street I think. That's my favorite

    • Godd damm! I cun't even reed or spell animoore. It musst be an age thong, I'm getting cold. Title know corectered.
    • Darkhaus - When Sparks Ignite
    • I suppose, I never use that button but it makes sense 
    • I think most of us browse this site using the "Unread Content" button, and we don't always see what sub-forum each thread is posted in. So it never hurts to clarify.  Also, a lot of these guys are pretty dumb, and they need all the help they can get. ;}
    • Not earth-shattering as far as innovation, but the album is very solid musically. A good listen.
    • Received this in the post today...and for me it was a disappointment upon hearing it. Purchased based on the first track released and that I like the two Seven cds,with the debut being top of the class,but this is has a few country type songs which don't sit with me at all...if I'd have heard this disc before I bought it I very much doubt ..or in fact I can definitely say I wouldn't,really disappointed in it.
    • I would agree with that,it was a classy album,full of great tunes
    • Cool! I figured if it's posted in here I won't have to specify that they're Christian only
    • Closest thing I've seen to the point I was going to make. Except, Nordic Union have two bog-average albums and neither would be a good Eclipse album - not even close, imho.  Anyway, for me, there is no doubt in the world that Eclipse's biggest issue is that for a period there for a few years, Martensson was more or less single-handedly writing about a dozen albums per year for every man and his dog. He was just everywhere and it was pretty obvious that was an issue. Some of it was great - I still think the Toby Hitchcock debut is the best album that Martensson has ever written, full stop. And the WET stuff is excellent too, thanks to it being collaborative. But a lot of it was already getting tired early on, such as the poor Ammunition and Nordic Union albums, and that female fronted hard rock band I forget the name of. He was just spreading himself too thin and sadly it's finally come to really show on an Eclipse album. Which is the real shame of it all.  I think the new album is a solid album, but as Glen says above, the best song on it is more or less completely identical to songs on previous albums. It's just got some different lyrics, but otherwise just the same song.  It's a massive ask and not going to happen, but the best thing that could happen for Eclipse is that Martensson just didn't involve himself in any projects for the next two years and concentrate on making good music with Eclipse. Won't happen, though. Also, the different production's been mentioned too - not a fan. It's not offensive, but it just doesn't sound as good as previous albums. 
    • I thought their debut album was excellent. An album that grew on me with pretty much every single spin. I also found a unique-ness in them that is hard to find these days. Great melodies. Very much looking forward to hearing what they come up with next.
