Thoroughly enjoy both songs they've released so far; hopefully this is a sign of things to come in 2020! :banger:

Was it just my phone, or is it slightly out of synch.

I already like this a lot. Hard guitars, great vocals, good songs.Ok it is "just" a project, but reading the interviews they did wrote the songs themselves, and Beach even mentioned they are prepared to tour if there will be demand.

Don't know why and I'm not complaining but my cd arrived today  :) well pleased,quick flick through it so far,proper full listen tomorrow at work but I can't get "Johnny Came Marching" outta my head and the throwback ballady tones of "Make It There" sound very nice...it screams 80's radio hit,but overall it sounds great to my ears...all band members seem on top form.

The more I listen to the song Shake The World, it so could have been on Dokken's  ETS.

First run-through was solid.  Robin sounds great.  Not album of the year or anything but good stuff.

First listen and it is pretty much what you'd expect.  Reminding musically at times of Erase the Slate and latter day Winger with some heavier moments sprinkled throughout.  The production is handled nicely, Robin sounds good and Reb is on fire.  My initial favorites would be the title track, She's Onto Us, the ballad Make It There and Johnny Came Marching.  While I found Sacred Place, Immortal Souls, and Unless We Change to be a little weaker than the rest.  I think had a few of the songs had stronger hooks come chorus time this would have been another early top 10 contender for me (along with Passion and Revolution Saints) but it falls a bit short at the moment.  Still a very solid album and one I recommend checking out.
