It's strange, I just feel little incentive to bother opening this thread as I know the album will come out it'll sound how I expect it to sound and be a good, solid disc, with few highlights and I'll chalk it up as another solid disc from Newman. But we all already know exactly what's coming.

That'd be awesome. Always potential for a killer album, so I'd love to see it play out.

And that's probably true again...but I've heard the album and I think it's more impassioned than the last couple, which were still very good. I like this one a lot. Just great songs.

Looking forward to it. I always enjoy his/their albums but they've seemed a bit mechanical in recent years. Would love something to stand alongside those first three.

I know where you're comin from as to what to expect,but he's one of them acts that generally doesnt let you down...as Geoff said the first few are great so some of that in the mix would be nice  :) but I know already that i'll like it and buy it.

Funny. Read this thread after listening to it a few times and thinking I've heard everything on it before. I think the problem is his sound is so distinctive and he never goes away from that formula. Basically what Geoff predicted. 

Bored of it already.

    • FASTER PUSSYCAT – Like A Ghost (2022) VARIOUS SOURCES - PUBLISHED NOVEMBER 29, 2022     Eighties Sunset Strip favorites FASTER PUSSYCAT are heating up the winter of 2023 with the release of new material in the form of the EP ‘Like A Ghost‘. This release is the first for the band under the Golden Robot umbrella with Taime Downe saying earlier this year “The band and I are over the moon to join the Golden Robot Records rock-n-roll family. We are super excited to release some of our badass new tunes globally – we know the label see our vision and supports the band and we feel completely at home here.” The new songs comes just a few months before Faster Pussycat are expected to tour overseas including Australia. Not bad for a band formed four decades ago and still delivers kick ass rock n’ roll. ‘Like a Ghost‘ is a track about growing up in the 70’s, listening to the radio and doing what kids do and the memories it brings back. It features Taime‘s signature vocals carrying the song through to completion. The production is second to none with blistering guitars and the band in full force. ‘Pirate Love‘, a cover of the legend Johnny Thunders stays true to the original with strong instrumentals, killer vocals and an edge to it – everything you would expect from Faster Pussycat. ‘Nola’ is a song inspired by New Orleans, a city that front man Taime Downe holds dear to his heart. When the band started working on making new music for a release “NOLA” was the obvious choice to lead with. Past year Downe and guitarist Sam Bam Koltun began working together in the studio tracking guitars for this song. And the band is also making available again their cover of Rick Springfield’s classic ‘Jessie’s Girl’ recorded some time ago. Highly Recommended   01 – Like a Ghost 02 – Pirate Love 03 – Nola 04 – Jessie’s Girl Taime Downe – lead and backing vocals Xristian Simon – guitar Sam “Bam” Koltun – guitar, backing vocals Danny Nordahl – bass, backing vocals Chad Stewart – drums BUY www.amazon.com/music/player/albums/B0BLF6SGYX
    • New video for 'Firestarter'. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the latest release from Dennis Ward and Khymera, "Hold Your Ground" will be available on February 10, 2023. Dennis handles lead vocals, bass, and keyboards and is joined by guitarist Michael Klein, keyboardist Eric Ragno, and drummer MIchael Kolar, with Pete Newdeck contributing backing vocals. As has to be expected with Khymera and Dennis, "Hold Your Ground" is another fine slice of high pedigree melodic rock. Khymera has in fact built its reputation as one of the best examples of what great European melodic rock is all about: crystal clear production, soaring vocals, killer musicianship, and songwriting that reminds fans of the heydays of the genre when bands like Giuffria, Icon, and Signal were releasing their classic albums. While it started out as an alliance between Italian producer/musician Daniele Liverani and then Kansas singer Steve Walsh, Khymera developed into a regular musical project when bassist and producer Dennis Ward (Magnum, Pink Cream 69) entered the fold. While known as a bassist, Dennis always sang background vocals with his bands, so he was more than ready and willing to take over the lead vocals for Khymera when the opportunity presented itself.   After releasing the albums "A New Promise" (2005) and "The Greatest Wonder" (2008), Dennis took a break from Khymera for some time before returning with "The Grand Design" (2015). He then returned with another new Khymera album five years later, “Master of Illusions” (2020). Musically, "Master Of Illusions" followed the logical progression of the musical path that was started when Dennis joined the project and was a strong, extremely melodic release, showcasing the fantastic vocal abilities of Dennis and skills as a songwriter and producer. Mercifully, the wait between albums is a bit shorter this time as 2023 will see the release of Dennis and Khymera's next chapter, "Hold Your Ground", an absolute tour de force of glorious melodic rock.Tracklisting:1.

    • urgh both of those songs are a cheese fest. Hard pass 
    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.
