Not quite getting all the hate for this one. It's not a barnburner, but it's not horrid either. It's "ok".

Something about the production seems off. That being said, I'm higher on this band than most of you seem to be, and I like the song (although the bridge is a little weak). Still eagerly awaiting

Yeah, for some reason I said the last two, but there are three.

Yep, that's sounding pretty meek. :(

those 2 songs are really weak.

Hmmm...still no boom to the sound...that old HOL big sound still missing,it would make these tracks better...for me anyway.

Yeah it's a really terrible sound which just makes the whole listening experience poor.

Another weak effort. With Christian's diminished vocals, you would think they'd made the record sound huge to cover up the limited range. This is just a shell of the HOL we loved. Very sad.

Listening to the album now and...yeah, this is pretty dire. The production sucks obviously but the songwriting just isn't good at all. It's a flat-out boring album. When I think "House of Lords" I think huge, epic songs and there are none of them here. Major letdown.

Oh, and that production - how is this still happening in 2020? It's not like this is a new band or an indie release either. I'm flummoxed.

I’ve seen reviews and people on social media rating this very highly - I must be missing something?

Weak songs and that production is dire, don’t understand how it’s even been signed off.

Absolutely agree with most that has been said here already, add to the poor sound the usual too many lame lyrics and the horrible running order (doesn't make sense having a super long intro for track2 but not to open the record?) doesn't bode too well, but...

There's a little pomp back and some cracking melodies (vocally too), and quite a good amount of material to like! We're All That We Got, Better Off Broken and The Both Of Us are a slight nod back to their World Upside Down through Cartesian Dreams eras, perhaps ;)

Still feel this band could release something really special, but at least liking enough of this, even if there's an air of 'could've been / should've been' about it.

I have to say, I didn't think this was so bad either. I don't actually mind the production to be totally honest. Heard a lot worse. For instance, I think production wise it sounds a lot better than Harem Scarem, which gets little critique. 

Anyway, production aside, the first 4 songs are terrible. Was ready to completely write the band off, but I'll be balled if the next 4 songs aren't all pretty good. Then the last two disappoint again, but there are 4 keepers on here, which I think is better than recent albums? Not exactly something to rejoice about, but it's not all terrible.

I didn't hate it on the first spin through but it's definitely not among their best.  Feels more like a James Christian solo album, missing the oomph of an HoL release.  Not terrible but nothing special.

Yeah "ok" is a good point of reference for this one,but it could've/should've been so much better,we know from World Upside Down that they still have it in them...somewhere.

New acoustic version of 'Perfectly (Just You and I)'.

Bonus track for the Japan release?

I agree with Geoff. The first 4 are bad, next 4 are decent, last 3 are bad.

New video for ' The Both Of Us'.

 

 

I agree with the overall consensus on this release.  A couple of good tracks like this one, but too many mediocre songs and an overall lackluster sound prevents the album from being a keeper for me.

    • Actually better than anything on the last two Steel Panther albums    
    • Press release: UK rock band, CATS IN SPACE, have announced the release of their fourth album ‘Atlantis‘ on November 27th via Harmony Factory / Cargo Records UK. The first single ‘I Fell Out of Love with Rock n’ Roll‘ will be released on October 30th. CATS IN SPACE return with their fourth studio album this Winter with the sensational ‘ATLANTIS’. Nine months in the making, it is set to cause tidal waves around the globe with a sound still ‘very Cats’ but this time the ‘Rock claws’ are out. In a year which has seen much upheaval in the world, the band have also undergone some changes whilst buried deep beneath the ocean recording their new masterpiece. Joining the Cats onboard is none other than the star of Jeff Wayne’s ‘War of the Worlds’, the amazing DAMIEN EDWARDS, whose incredible vocal range has brought another dimension to the unique sounds of the band. After three hugely acclaimed and successful albums, this new line-up will certainly get the fans buzzing in anticipation of the new ‘Aquatic monster’. “Atlantis has been a testing journey for the band in many ways, taking into account some personal events and indeed the state of the business due to Covid-19. But, let us reassure you all, we believe that the new record is going to blow you away. It rocks more and has more symphony, courtesy of our good friend Mike Moran and his orchestra! We are super excited for everyone to hear what we believe is our finest album yet” – Greg Hart. Tracklist: 1. Dive! 2. Spaceship Superstar 3. Revolution 4. Sunday Best 5. Listen To The Radio 6. I Fell Out Of Love With Rock ‘n Roll 7. Marionettes 8. Queen Of The Neverland 9. Magic Lovin’ Feelin’ 10. Can’t Wait For Tomorrow 11. Seasons Change 12. Atlantis

    • New song 'Castaway'. Nice!    
    • So I just heard this song, you all probably know of it, or not, I fucking really really like this song, I think it fucking rocks, but rocks in like a crossover Punk-Goth-Raw Hard Rock throwback to the Black Flag - Loose Nut type days, this song is completely raw, unpolished, and just dirty,    
    • I know a few years ago I posted the very first BA song off his very first album, pretty much sarcastically, as it made me want to throw on some daisy dukes, roller skates and bop up and down my street chewing bubble gum and dancing, well I was wrong, it wasn't his first song, this one is, and guess what? it's a million times better then his old first song, I even got the disco remix, this is pure hilarity, I couldn't stop laughing after hearing this, and like his other first song, this has a mind tormentingly catchy beat to it, caution it will lure you in and get you, also, some company out of Canada BA deals with hunts uploads of this song down with intensity, anyone that gets uploaded to YouTube generally is caught by it's bots on the UL, if not that company snags it within a couple days, so I had to upload an artist who has a similar name and his song that also has a similar name, lets see how long we can keep this up there, and why the fuck does that company care if it's out there? that's almost Nancy Drew script material, very fucking odd, anyway, when your done laughing,, lets hear your thoughts.
