Who's the wig guy?!!

August 7. My previous post edited.

am I listening to the same song? Sounds light years ahead of most of the garbage I've had to endure so far this year. I agree however that there is definitely more awesomeness on the album.

It is on iTunes too Glen - at least it’s different to the one Frontiers posted. They have it opening with Love Of My Life but on media platforms it seems to be Breakout..

 Despite the cheesy lyrics it's a solid track...nice guitar work.

My thought too.  Not a bad tune but after hearing samples, there are definitely many better ones on the album.

Agree...guitar work is what makes this one.

Still think ill enjoy this album.

Truth on that second sentence!

I have to say that after repeated listens this tune is really growing on me.  

In listening to the samples also, it sounds like this tune and maybe Free My Mind are the closest things to ballads on the album....And they're closer to more mid-tempoish songs IMO.  Not that I have anything against ballads but kinda nice sometimes having an album without any.

Already know I'm going to dig this album after these 2 tunes and the samples.

2/2 for me so far, looking forward to this one. 
Judging from the samples ‘Lift Me Up’ sounds killer

Nice surprise!  My Amazon order is showing arrival 8/11-8/26 so no telling when it'll show up for me.  I'd change it but I used reward points so getting it for nothing....So guess I'll deal.

Looking forward to this one though and hopefully will get to listen to it soon online or something.

Maybe it's just me, but so much that is coming out all falls into the same mold....everything sounds like everything recently released......I will have to listen to this one quite a few times to see if it grows on me, but, it sounds like a dozen other bands rehashed.

Listened to this....Digging it.  And agree....I'd say my top 3 songs in some order would be Lost, Lift Me Up and The One.

For me, this is an album that picks up steam as it goes.  It starts out with 2-3 pretty good tunes but then really picks up steam in the middle.

What stands out here to me is the guitar work, keys and overall musicianship.....Just sounds great and is just excellent guitar driven, melodic rock.

Not sure who it reminds me of...Maybe some combination of Treat, One Desire, H..E.A.T, Midnite City type stuff.  Also kinda reminds me some of the W.e.t debut album style-wise for some reason.  

Easily among my favorites this year.

This release is massive! Easily my favourite debut since One Desire in 2017. Everything from the songs, vocals of all sorts, guitars, drums, tasty keys and production are all ear candy to me. 
 The only “weakness” might be the lyrical content, but I really don’t care. 
They could have added an extra minute to “Lift Me Up” so awesome! Can’t unhear Winger’s “Madelaine” when hearing their “Madeleine”...that’s not a bad thing.

This is a nice debut, and something the band can hopefully build on.  They seem to have all the pieces in place, but at times the songs sound a bit generic, borrowing a bit too heavily from other artists.  I listened to this on Spotify which seems to have a different track order than I've seen elsewhere.  The opener 'Breakout', which sounds a bit like a Talisman b-side, and 'Madeleine' are probably the only tracks that failed to grab me. Tracks 2 thru 4 are all solid.  But things really pick up in the middle, starting with 'Lift Me Up'.  They string together a few more standouts with 'Lost', 'Love of My Life' and 'The One'.  The quality slips a little again after that, but overall I enjoyed this album

They must've done some joggling of the order of this release somewhere late in the process.  I've got a digital download that has a completely different order than my actual CD.

The running order on my digital download has Breakout, Free My Mind, Friends, Give Me all Your Love, Lift Me Up, Lost, Love Of My Life, The One, Madeline, Night After Night, Take Me To Your Heart.

And my CD has Love Of My Life, Lost, Friends, Night After Night, Free My Mind, Give Me All Your Love, Lift Me Up, The One, Breakout, Madeline, Take Me To Your Heart.

I don't know which one I prefer lol.  I like that Lost moved up on the CD version since I feel like that's the best song on the album, but not sure I like that they put Night By Night and Free My Mind right next to each other as they're both kinda similar mid-tempo type songs so I might've split those up a bit.

At the end of the day, I guess it doesn't matter much.  Either way, digging the CD :guitbannana:

    • Sad news.as before my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.
    • Ah. Murdoch press. Always a good place to go for truth. 
    • 2021 can't get here fast enough, worse year ever. Looking forward to this album.
    • Update from Ronnie yesterday:   As promised a week ago here’s a little update on my current health situation. I’m not gonna go into details, but just state that unfortunately I’m still battling cancer!! After some pain issues and following a scan just before Easter this year I was told that the cancer had spread and I was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, which in principle means incurable! Now there were two paths I could go by! I could sit down in a corner and feel pity for myself (which I guess I did for a while) or I could try to carry on living and do what I do best and I chose the latter. So with great back up from my family and true friends I decided to keep on writing music and lyrics plus the fact that I had a lot of ideas/songs that I wanted to get out of my system. So that’s what I’ve been doing on/off for the last couple of months. That eventually means that some new music is coming from me in the immediate future, but more details on that later. All that said, I must state that I feel good these days and have done for a while. I still get treatments, mainly immune therapy. I have some permanent pain issues and other sequelaes that I have to deal with! And mentally, I have my good days and my bad days, so be it ! But I feel that I’m in good hands with the doctors and staff who’s treating me, so everything considered I’m in good spirits! It is what it is and I can’t change that whatsoever, so I simply aim to get the best out of life. Finally another huuuuge thank to all of you out there who’s been rooting for me and cheering me up through this process ! Means a lot to me Love Ronnie
    • CAN NOT WAIT! The song titles sound awesome!!  
    • But we're only one year into this new decade, and it hasn't been a banner year, so that could be bad thing.  I'm just being an ass, but I hate sensationalism so I enjoy picking it apart.  ;}
    • Much to the delight of melodic rock fans around the globe, W.E.T. has announced the release of their fourth album, “Retransmission”. Core members Jeff Scott Soto, Erik Mårtensson, and Robert Såll deliver another astounding album that will surely be a contender for Melodic Rock Album of the Year 2021. W.E.T truly epitomizes what melodic rock has become in the new decade. The key element at the foundation of W.E.T has always been to create a modern melodic hard rock sound that will drive the genre into the future. Combining powerhouse rhythms and top notch production, the music is equally classic and contemporary. “Retransmission” is nothing else than an absolute milestone, which is well in keeping with the tradition established by the three amazing records that have preceded this one.Starting with a genre-defining self-titled debut, Robert Såll (the “W” from Work of Art), Erik Mårtensson (the “E” from Eclipse), and Jeff Scott Soto (the “T” from Talisman) accepted the daunting task to give that debut a follow-up, “Rise Up”. After that stellar follow-up, their third opus, “Earthrage”, cemented a legacy of music which will stand the test of time.Tracklisting:1.    Big Boys Don't Cry2.    The Moment Of Truth3.    The Call Of The Wild4.    Got To Be About Love5.    Beautiful Game6.    How Far To Babylon7.    Coming Home8.    What Are You Waiting For9.    You Better Believe It10.    How Do I Know11.    One Final KissLine-up:Jeff Scott Soto: Lead VocalsErik Martensson: All Rhythm Guitar, Some Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals & KeyboardsRobert Säll: Keys and guitarMagnus Henriksson: Lead GuitarAndreas Passmark: Bass GuitarRobban Bäck: Drums
