I've never really done Crashdiet

Not sure why.
possibly heard a song or two that I didn't like and was never inspired.
possibly confused them with Crazy Lixx because they're bothe Sweedish and never a huge fan of Crazy Lixx

Anyway, I have started listening to them.Began with Generation Wild.
not sure if this is one of their better albums, but I'm enjoying what I'm hearing :)

They releases are all good.

Olli, who sang on Unattractive Revolution, has done CDS by the Reckless Love.

All their albums are very good to great 

I tried out New Religion And S/T and those that were ok or pretty good for me were
My Medicine
Blame It On Love
She's Mine
What Of Our Love
Sound Of the Loud Minority
I Missd the Mark
All Looks No Hooks

I geuss 4 songs per album is OK.

Yeah the last two Crazy Lixx albums are probably their best but I like em all,as for Crashdiet as already pointed out Generation Wild(my fav) & Rest In Sleaze are brilliant release but I don't mind most of the others,not as consistant but still ok in my book,another band with a revolving door vocalist wise.

Picking up from Doggy about Olli,he sang on the Local Band cd also.i like that one...its different but very enjoyable.

Crashdiet have put out some good music but personally I'll take Reckless Love, Kissin Dynamite and Crazy Lixx over them....

Yup. Crashdiët is just a little too inconsistent.

When see who see plays in Local Band, other than Olli. I am surprise they haven't done another EP or album. Might the members busy of their original bands.

'Rest In Sleaze' and 'Generation Wild' are absolutely essential to any fan of good music. The others have a good song here and there, but none are essential. 'Unattractive Revolution' is not a bad disc, though.

Savage Playground actually has some very good songs but the production is so bad it renders it unlistenable.

those songs were great live

Yeah, I prefer the new one to that one. New one had a handful of okay songs. 

They kind of did it to themselves, though, to record two classic discs out of their first three. Almost impossible to live up to that afterwards. Like Crystal Ball. Two killer albums and they were terrible forever after. Wig Wam.

As awesome as it is at the time, it's so hard to continue such a high degree of excellence when you start out so strong.

    • Atlantis is amazing 👏  Was my album of that year 
    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
