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.

It will be on Spotify and Apple Music tomorrow - Got my bundle with Creye and Wig Wam etc through a day early. 

Snap  :)

Very good after the first run through(all of em) but the Wig Wam is my fav at the minute.

I’m yet to play Creye but W.E.T. and Wig Wam are a brilliant way to kick off 2021. Both really solid discs. 

Looking forward to Creye now!

Gave this a listen and been through twice so far.

Basically, I dig the first 5 songs but second half is a little hit and miss until One Final Kiss which is killer.  

Still a handful of good tunes I'll initially be adding to my playlist though and we'll see how it goes after a few more listens.

New lyric video for 'One Final Kiss'.

 

 

This has to be one of the best tracks I’ve heard in a while. Sensational

First time through and it sounds great. A few fillers on the back half but some really good songs on here.

I think it's better than the last disc.

The tune is great, but the lyrics are a bit weird. The words don't flow as nicely as they could. Seems like it could've used a quick rewrite.

my fav is Moment of Truth. 

That might be my fav as well. One Final Kiss is awesome too though.

Not sure what my favorite is but my top 4 in no particular order would be Big Boys Don't Cry, Moment of Truth, Got To Be About Love and One Final Kiss.

Solid album though outside of a few tunes in the second half.  If this had come out in December it would've been top 3 for me in 2020.  However, I'm doubting it ends up that high for me this year with so much great stuff to come.  We shall see.

Either way, nice to be hearing quality new music.

Coming Home is easily top 4 imo

I like the music of that one...just the theme that doesn't do much for me.  I guess I've heard enough Coming Home type songs over the years.  Kind of the same thing for the Babylon tune.

lol, that's a good point. I feel like the lyrics have never been the strongest point of this project though (but then, how many AOR bands can claim that?)

At least they weren't ripped from other bands or the Frontiers encyclopedia of cliches. How many more times do we need to hear the "breaking my chains" line?

Truu! The first time I noticed it was "Walk Away" when they try slipping in the line "fool me once, then bad on you; fool me twice, then bad on me" when we all know it's supposed to be "shame on you/shame on me." There's no need to change the wording. It's sounds wrong, and it's the same amount of syllables. 

Here in "One Final Kiss" there are multiple odd lines, but the one that bugs me most is "I took all it in fun." He sings it properly in the first chorus, "I took it all in fun," but the following choruses he fucks up, swaps "all" and "it," and it just sounds awkward.

I would rate it around 93/100...great disc.

I had it around 85% and that's where it will stick I think.

Hmm...first half of the album is stellar but I'm not sold on the second half yet (apart from One Final Kiss, which might be a top 5 W.E.T. song)
