Most Disappointing "Comeback" Album

Mine has to be JULLIET's "Psycho Boyfriend". I loved their self-titled debut and played that thing to death. So they regrouped in 2004 and released "Psycho Boyfriend". What a steamy pile of grungy shit!

Sadly, it's a very common thing. I know it must be hard to recapture the early magic, but I think a lot of these comebacks are just cash grabs unfortunately. 

Off the top of my head,

Steelheart, Riverdogs, Giant, Lynch Mob :doh: , Tyketto, Hericane Alice, to name a few.

Although, the recent "Hittman" album shows that they can sometimes be a triumph.

I agree with those bands too.

Even Kix, my hometown heroes were less than impressive on Rock Your Face Off.

I'd have to toss out Roxy Blue with their recent s/t album.

I actually like a few tunes on it but still a huge departure from their great debut album and nowhere near the same style.

it saddens me to say it but Steve Perry.

Was just really boring. 

I liked the first single but the rest was just dull.

I've never been a huge Steelheart fan, but I do like some of the early stuff.

But I thought Through The Worlds Of Stardust was an amazing album.
Is that the comeback album you referred to?
Aside from that, he was never going to be able to sing like he did. I mean he still does well given his age, but what he used to do was never going to stand the test of time.

Yeah,  it's not a bad album. The problem with comebacks or reunions is that expectations are high, sometimes maybe too high.

Only Aussies will be familiar with this one. It was a huge disappointment at the time.

During the 70s "Skyhooks" was a massive Australian band. Pure Glam/Pop, although they could be quite edgy at times. I think they may have had a couple of songs banned.

The first four clips are from the mid 70s when they were in their prime.

However, in 1990 they reunited for an eagerly anticipated comeback album and tour. 

The final clip is the single (Jukebox in Siberia) from that album. It was very, very bad.

Yeah we (used to) get excited when they were announced,now not so much,just take the new news about Giant here on the board...no-one is exactly besides themselves waiting for that...although I actually thought the new Hericane Alice ep  was good ;)

For me Steelheart had a few good songs on it but the rest I agree with you on.

I would add Spread Eagle to this list as well. When I heard the samples of their comeback, I steered clear of it. Sounded nothing like their first two albums. I also wasn’t a fan of the Tora Tora comeback.

Yup.... both of those were duds. Tota Tora I kinda expected but I was surprised how bad the Spread Eagle is.

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
