Shows how unique Steve's bass playing is. Very distinctive.
I tried the last album, and couldn't get into it.
Doubt I'll bother with this one.
Even Maiden I struggle to get in to these days :(

I used to love Maiden but weirdly lost interest in their new output after Bruce rejoined.

The music just became so repetitive and cliched, often sounding like they were paying tribute to older songs rather than playing new songs.

The first album they did with him after he returned (Brave new world) had a couple of ok songs on it, but most of the choruses were just the same line repeated over and over again.

 

Now though, all they seem to release is live album after live album.

Very much the same for me, but I lost interest a bit earlier.
For me, jumping the shark was after Seventh Son.
Since then it's always been forced to listed to the music enough to get to really like it.
the rewards are there for persistence, but I have little excitement for new releases.

I class them as a bit ACDCish in the way they their music is no longer diverse enough to generate interest.
Between No Prayer and Dance Of Death I have added an average of 3 songs per album to my best of folder, a far cry from the earlier album average of 6 or 7 per album.

I've dabbled in their latest album, but not much interest again, haven't even tried out the two before the latest.

I can honestly say that Seventh son up to X-Factor is probably my favourite era of Maiden. I did not mind Virtual XI but it just was not a patch on the previous album for me (although Clansman is a monster song). Everything since then I can take or leave. I like a couple of tracks on Brave new world, but everything since, I don't even think I can tell you a single song off of any of those albums.

Nothing bad on them, just nothing that amazing either.

    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again. 
    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION!
