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

    • An absolute must have album, KILLER!!! stuff...  
    • This whole transgender sport thing is a joke IMO....I mean who really cares who or what is competing in the Olympics these days, most of them are on performance drugs of one kind or another anyway....half the women look like men and some of the men look like women depending on which sport they are competing in....I just don't give a fuck anymore....I watch NHL, MLB and NFL....they can put women or transgender in any of those leagues and I'll have a good laugh....
    • Firstly, thank you for those kind words. I was moved.  Secondly, yeah, the whole transgender sport issue is a disgrace. I honestly can't understand how it's allowed.  Joe Rogan's been calling this shit out from day one.        
    • just feeling very emotional right now, and wanted to let all my HH brothers know how I feel, without being offensive or getting cancelled,  I just wanted to tell you guys that your all Fags and if you were any bigger pillow biters, you'd have to have your wrists permanently set in the limp position, especially you G-Off, I noticed since you met that new guy you dont even come on here anymore, must be getting to much weenie, anyways, your all homos, and queers, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out your all chicks with dicks, especially the wops and nips, but I think your all Crackers so I dont have to bring race into this, well that and im not a dumbocrat, Nolan I dont know if you or G-Off take more weenie, but it would be interesting to compare stats, anyways if you cant tell I had to unload this somewhere since I just got my Twitter account banned for saying that these faggot transgendered people, who are fucking men, should be able to compete against woman, in sports, cause it's pretty obvious nobody who could compete in athletics against their own gender, have to go compete in a lower level, I mean if they ever want to feel victory, isnt that why anyone would want to be a man and compete against a woman? sorry im lost, i cannot even guess the mindset behind that, you can dress like a fag and still compete against dudes, right?
    • Yay! Also one of the best guitarists, you get lots of people that copy Vai, Malmsteen, EVH e.t.c. and do it superbly well but never seen anyone come close to getting Steve Howes style. Although on recent live albums (less said about them the better)  it sounds like he has slowed a lot from his heyday.
