Title track.... 

Had missed this when it came out and just got around to checking it out.

Not overly doing much for me.

I've been a little up and down with this band over the years for whatever reason.  United was great but this new one isn't feeling like an automatic preorder for me.  I liked the first single but I may need to hear this before deciding to buy or not.

even slightly weaker HS albums are still better than what most other bands put out 

Yeah, I'm really hating this new practice. 

seems like you only like HEAT these days

Every time I hear the title Change The World, the Dokken tune from Erase The Slate comes into my head.

I don't mind it. Not their best song and probably not a keeper, but manageable.

Gave this a listen...gotta say it just isn't overwhelming me.

I do dig Aftershock, Searching For Meaning and Death of Me.  And no Man's Land is pretty good.  Those are definitely some solid tunes.

Rest though just kinda there and not that memorable for me.  Now granted, only been through one time so maybe more listens changes my mind.  Basically, the second half just sorta lost my attention for whatever reason.

Well...There's some truth to that ;)

Having a tough time stacking other stuff up against it at the moment.  I mean, I'm not trying to put this album down in any way but for me, there's at least 4 songs on H.e.a.t (and maybe 5-6 songs) that I like better than whatever I'd say is my favorite song here (probably Aftershock right now).

Maybe it's just me but even trying to be objective I still feel like this is quite a bit weaker than United.  There were 6-7 songs on United I really dug and I played that album a lot.  Here I'm only getting that vibe with 3-4 songs.

It's early though and I'll see what happens as run through it a few more times.

I may be in the minority but this release isn’t doing anything for me. Love “Death Of Me” and “Aftershock” is solid. I’m a huge HS fan and Unity was easily their best in 15 years....but this release won’t change my world.

    • The CONFESS song, man that is pretty good. I had not heard that one. 2020 is such a suck year in so many ways, 2021 has GOT to be better. Let's hope so, huh?! For me, the Tokyo Motor Fist and Black Swan albums are standouts and I would pick pretty much any song off of these.

    • Video is "not available in my country". What's the name of the song?
    • Bro, I fucking post this shit on here, acting all shocked about this brand new band I have discovered and my extreme confusion towards their music, then on a gut feeling I go look in a rack of shit that Ive purchased and never listened to, literally everything in this rack never got taken out of the wrap, and there sits this album, and Moonraker, never even gave them a second worth of listens, I feel like I'm about the biggest phony on here, I really am and do feel like I'm just a fucking idiot, anyways, spinning this one today, then I'll work into the next CD, this really is a good disc, kind looking like this may be the standout track on this one, I get back after Moonracker, prob tomorrow
    • I know I'm really stretching it out on this one, but the other day I caught the end of A video for a song that I absolutely thought was one of the most killer fucking songs of it's genre, I even put it in many of my AOR and rock playlists, though it was clearly Alt + Modern Rock, it never pretends to be anything else, but something about this song, even back in Junior High, set itself apart from all the other garbage of the same genre that was swallowing us in massive droves back around 93 to 95, I thought this song was not only so much different  then the rest of the genre, but it went a step beyond, and was actually a good song, if you could look past the obvious Alt and modern influences, it's a song that gets stuck in my head all the fucking time, a song shrouded in mystery, as I to this day have never figured out what the lyrics are completely about, I love this fucking song, and I got real curious how my metal and AOR brethren felt about and towards this completely fucking catchy and awesome song??? of course the song is Black Metallic. it is if not anything else, an awesome fucking borderline pop song.  
    • Yeah, know what you mean. Really hard to get these tunes out of your system... Guess that's what they call a guilty pleasure... 😉 Have you heard the follow up album "Moonraker"?
    • Nominations aren't announced so what happens is a politician who made the nomination 'leaks' that they did it. Means diddly squat. If any of us were in a position to we could nominate leykis101 and leak it.
