It's good, but you don't think it's a bit... "common?" 

It's a nice song, but it's safe as the day is long. I may very well prefer this to Palace - I don't know. It's kind of a weird comparison, but I don't think that Palace guy is really playing it too safe at all. He has a bit of rocks or diamonds about him, and that, to me, says he doesn't mind taking a risk. Some of it doesn't pay off, but some of it's amazing. Either way, I wouldn't call him safe.

But, to each their own. It's all good music. And at least this is better than JSS's latest garbage. 

Yeah, this song is very much in the "safe" realm.  It's not unpleasant but not exactly great either.

silly comments about side 2 really. been though this about 10 times now and the get better with each spin (even Babylon), and Coming Home and One Final Kiss are superb 

Most of the songs 3-4 mins in length. Only 4 over 4 mins and none over 5. In other words - right to the point!

It seems everyone loves this project but only the debut truly blew me away. Definitely agree with you, hopefully this isn't just a polished group of Martensson demos that were lying around.

I listen to the Palace album and for the most part I just cringe 

Have Geoff and Glen swapped accounts? Or have I confused the two all this time? But suddenly Glen is wrong about everything, and Geoff sometimes makes sense. 

I'm gonna need a few drinks to work through this. 

What a strange year it's been.

I’m just happy it isn’t a typical Eclipse sounding track under the name W.E.T.

I prefer it over the lead off single...I just hate the lame title of that track.

Nothing sudden about it; it's always been this way. Perhaps you're just finally wisening up a tad, young fella.

wrong about everything lol. 

I've been mostly right about everything just recently. ;)

also right about WET - 4 light years better than Palace (who aren't bad just for the record)

Comparing this to Palace is like comparing NY Strip steak to tenderloin.

The Palace is safe but nice. 

W.E.T. slays Palace.

Sounding good.  Have seen a few other reviews and all have been glowing.

Really looking like this might be a very strong year for new releases.  Hopefully we start seeing the results of all the time artists have had on their hands to work on new music

I've liked the new singles but my hopes for this album are not *that* high and here's why:

Listen to the debut. KILLER opening track. KILLER closing track. Maybe one or two skippable songs in between but the rest is absolute fire.

Can you see this album reaching those heights? From what I've heard so far, I can't, and the last two albums haven't even been close to the self-titled. I think it will be enjoyable enough like Earthrage was, plenty of "nice" and "good" songs, but I think we were just spoiled rotten by the debut.

I don't mean to come across as pessimistic, it just came to me the other day when thinking about this project how fucking high the bar was set right away. 

P.S. lol, that Rock Pit review was heavy on hyperbole and light on actual substance. These pre-release reviews RARELY have anything negative to say about anything they get from a big-name label.

I think the debut is their weakest album añd Invincible is their weakest lead track, albeit v good.

Walk away & Watch the Fire are better tho imo. 

However just to clarify I would rate all 3 albums at least 85-90% 

super consistent band.

I also love the 2 singles so far - they would both rank in the top 20-30 songs I heard in 2020.

in fact this has me interested now and I haven't properly rated an album for ages so I might later and see how it pans out. 

debut will prob come out on top now lol. I think they all will be close

Yup. Most reviewers are a waste of time.

I also put the debut in 3rd place, It's a fantastic album, but I feel the next 2 are even better. I also love the 2 new singles and have high hopes for the album!

Seriously enjoying this album. Better than Earthrage for me. Nice variation which keeps things fresh without straying too far from the W.E.T. sound. Gets better with each listen. Huge production as expected. 
 

‘One Final Kiss’... wow

    • I didn't get a choice..they just stuck an Astrazenica in me...as for superpowers I can now see in the dark,with the lights on of course
    • Isn't the new Jannsen jab a one off?
    • 10 weeks between them here,it started as 2 weeks but they changed it to enable more people to have at least a first jab each
    • About A Girl - Nirvana
    • Faith Hope Love - King's X
    • This is better than most things Taint has done in the last decade, but it merely rises to the level of "ok" or "not bad". Certainly nothing stellar IMO.
    • Jez, this could be right up your alley. Westcoast/AOR from Norway. I dig it. Good cover of Nik Kershaw's 'Running Scared'.   www.facebook.com/tobbmusic                          
    • From Red Voodoo's website: Sacramento’s rock band RED VOODOO is ready to take on the world with their debut album “BRING IT BACK” produced by Tesla’s guitarist, Frank Hannon. Red Voodoo’s sound is inspired by rock bands such as Van Halen, Sammy Hagar, Boston, and Rush. The album embodies the new generation of rock n’ roll and what music is all about. From straight forward rock songs to emotionally driven ballads, each song tells a story. Red Voodoo is Dino McCord (lead vocals), Brandon Paul (lead guitar), Andrew Edwards (bass guitar), and Nick Pesely (drums). “Bring It Back” is out everywhere now! RED VOODOO gained national attention during the summer of 2020 with their #1 Underground radio hit RISE UP, a song and video that expressed their feelings about isolation during the Covid-19 crisis and attracted the ears of their musical hero Sammy Hagar. Dino visited the legend for his birthday bash at Cabo Wabo and was invited to sing onstage with Sammy for a set of acoustic songs.                          
    • New lyric video for 'Blinded By A Lie'.    
    • Yeah another concern is waiting 4 months or more for the second jab, the science says 8-10 weeks at the  most but the politicians are panicking in many places (including Canada) and trying to get the first jab into as many people as possible and making them wait too long for the second jab due to a shortage of vaccine....someone save us from idiot politicians who quote the science one minute and then toss it aside when it doesn't suit them....do it right or not at all.... Of course now I'm hearing from the pharmaceutical companies that we will need a third shot.....this makes sense since they have not made enough profit from this pandemic yet....someone save us from greedy assholes...
