First 2 singles are a pass, and with synth in the description of the whole album scares me.

You don't like Outrun?? Excellent song.

I like them both but neither of them touch Loaded.

Which is not in the album. 

I'm also not a huge fan of them taking this direction.

Outrun is "ok" at best, other one is a no for me. Loaded is great and a little more in their Melodic side. Not into synth music, even when I was 12 in the early 80's I only liked a song here ir there.

The title track dropped and it reminds me of Judas Priest but is still the sound that has become Reckless Love. 
 

Pepe the guitarist isn’t talked about very much but his solos are amongst my favourites over the past few years. They may be short but most are flashy, unique and memorable. Not the shred by numbers that goes unnoticed…you clearly hear and anticipate every one of his guitar solos.

Totally agree. Apart from the guitar gods and the virtuosos, there are some guitarists that i really like and appreciate. You are right Pepe is a magnificent guitar player. When you hear his solos and his riffs you know they are of top quality. Others in the same calibre in my opinion are Satchel(Steel Panther), Robby Boebel(Frontline), Mike Slamer, Trond Holter(Wig Wam), Sven Larsson(Street Talk).

Was totally not expecting that. Even after you mentioned it.

Pretty sure I said this years and years ago. I've always thought he was one of the more creative soloists.

The shift in style just isn't clicking for me.  If I want to listen to synthwave there are plenty of bands who do it better.  I was really looking forward to a new release from these guys after the 5 year wait.  So I'll still give the album a few spins in hopes it will grow on me.  But based on the first few tracks I'll probably be passing on this one :(

And I'm the opposite. I like what I've heard and look forward to the full album.

About half way through the album and they have really leaned into, nay fully embraced synthwave throughout. I dig it, but others likely won't. 

Oh, and the synthwave cover of Ozzy's Bark at the Moon is a great take on a classic tune.

    • shame you missed Skid Row. They were great back then 
    • Almost impossible to separate my top 10 as most could easily swap position (especially 1 & 2 !!). But I gave it a go. 1. Threshold - Dividing Lines Only just recently released but this was always going to be a huge album for me. 5 yrs since the release of Shires but the wait was worth it. This is a masterpiece in my opinion - melody, lyrics, vocals, musicianship, hooks all amazing. 2. Ghost - Imperia For a long while this was top of the pack and was definitely my most listened to album of 2022. The last 2 Ghost albums were amazing and this is no different. Great production, arrangements - this something really different and unique. Best gig of 2022 as well - their show at London O2 was stunning 3. Muse - Will of the People Biggest surprise of the year. Never would have imagined that a Muse album would feature in my best of list let alone end up no 3!! Easily their best album to date , love every track. Short at just 37 mins, but I love that. No filler, all killer album. Brilliant lyrics and subject matter as well 4. VHS Collection - Night Drive Never has an album title been so accurate. This album is made for night time driving - just an awesome vibe, brilliant songs. Top job all round 5. Alter Bridge - Pawns & Kings Monumental metal album. Dark, deep lyrically, crunching Tremonti riffs. Love it. 6 Kissin Dynamite - Not The End of the Road Another surprise for me. Never been the biggest KD fan but man they nailed it on this. Barely a filler in sight and easily the best pure melodic rock album of 2022 7. Degreed - Are You Ready Another top quality album from one of my fav bands. Really hate the song Radio though which keeps this out of the top 5 8. Dan Reed Network - Let's Hear it for the King I do dearly love this album, and agonised a bit over its placing, but the albums above are just too good. Massive return to form and I pretty much love every track with 'I See Angels' probably bring my fav ballad of 2022 9. Cats in Space - Kickstart the Sun Another album which could be top 5 on any given day. Just a couple of weaker tracks pull it down slightly but stuff like the title track & Smoke & Mirrors are top drawer. Brilliant vocals as well. 10. Iron Allies - Blood In Blood Out Late addition to my top 10 but my God this album is awesome! Best thing Reece has been on in years and old school metal album of the year imo. Just crunching metal and sensational solos. Go to gym album So now we come to honourable mentions - in no order - all v good albums in their own right : Reckless Love - excellent attempt at synthwave Chez Kane - another great 80s throwback Skid Row - Erik breaths new life into old dogs Palace - great bunch of feel good songs Crashdiet - best album since GW Treat - more great modern melodic rock Black Swan - better than the debut Ultraboss - v nice synthwave album Ronnie Atkins - Bit of a dip but still v nice Young Gun Silver Fox - best Westcoast 2022 Do there you go, 20 great albums which I would recommend. I really good year in music with a few surprises for me. 👍
    • Up until 2007 only local bands performing cover songs. 2008, my first ever international experience and it was an awesome one. It was Mr.Big's reunion tour. 
    • New video for 'LARP'. From Frontiers: Infinite & Divine, a collaboration between two Swedish musicians, guitarist/songwriter/producer Jan Åkesson and vocalist Tezzi (a/k/a Terese Persson), will release their sophomore album, "Ascendancy" on February 10, 2023.  In the summer of 2019, Jan and Tezzi first encountered one another and shortly after that set to work on writing songs for what would ultimately become their debut album, ”Silver Lining”. Said album was a fantastic combination of Jan’s energetic heavy riffs, the influences of their varied taste in melodic hard rock and metal, and Tezzi’s melodic, yet powerful vocals. "Ascendancy" sees the two taking that songwriting formula and building upon it to craft an even more thrilling and energetic album, highlighting all their strengths.  Terese "Tezzi" Persson started her musical career doing local troubadour gigs at the age of 17, but before that had already started writing her own songs and lyrics. Over the years, she has appeared in different musical projects both as a lead singer in metal and progressive rock bands, as well as doing backup vocals for various Swedish artists. In 2013, she also appeared on the second album, “Fantasmagoria,” from Epysode (featuring Mike Lepond of Symphony X, Simone Mularoni of DGM, and Tom Englund of Evergrey among others). In 2021, she partnered up with four other stunning lead vocalists in the pop metal outfit Venus 5, whose self-titled debut album was released in June 2022.  Jan Åkesson started out as a songwriter while also appearing as lead guitarist in several bands, before he decided to step back from the live scene to focus on writing and producing songs. He started the band StoneLake, who released seven studio albums, while at the same time writing songs for other artists around the world, all who were performing different styles of music. In 2017, he also released the album ”Ascension” by his solo project Shadow Rain.  The band’s music is extremely tasteful, and the listeners will enjoy very good moments with songs as “I Feel Alive” (a modern feeling similar to what can be found on AMARANTHE’s works, but with precious melodies and great vocals), the 80’s hooking melodies of “Infinite & Divine” and “Not Too Late”, the melodic Hard Rock appeal shown on “Wasteland” and “We Are One”, the tender and precious harmonies of “You and I” and “While You’re Looking for Love” (this one has the same appeal of heavier songs of DEF LEPPARD’s “Hysteria”) are the ones to become the favorite tracks for the fans. But the entire album is great, so enjoy it. - Metal Temple “Silver Lining” runs the proverbial gamut, touching upon a bevy of metal subgenres while delivering consistently memorable riffs and some pretty impressive lead work. For her part, Persson's vocals elevate much of the material here, adding a soulful, 'human' quality.... - Sonic Perspectives ‘Silver Lining’ is an absolute powerhouse of an album and well worth a listen. - Metal Planet Music Tracklisting:1.

    • First gig was Motley Crue at Birmingham NEC in 1989 with White Lion & Skid Row supporting. I was 14. My 2 uncle's took me so I knew a few weeks in advance and was listening to 'Dr Feelgood' & 'Girls, Girls, Girls' in prep. We didn't arrive in time to see Skid Row. I didn't know them at the time or thus what i was missing. This was the show were Vince through a tantrum and threw his mic into the crowd and walked off - though he/they did return to finish. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/motley-crue/1989/nec-arena-birmingham-england-2bd7446a.html
    • Growing up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere, there was no concert scene, and only classical music was permitted to be played in my house, so it wasn't until I left for college in 1984 that I had an opportunity to see any acts... but that first year was a good one. Over that Thanksgiving break I stayed with a guy in Michigan where I got to see Armored Saint and Whitesnake opening for Quiet Riot (RIP Kevin Dubrow). The following summer back in PA I went to what is to date the biggest concert event I've ever attended: Live Aid at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. Physically, the most miserable concert experience ever, as it was almost 100 degrees and I got dehydrated and sunburned like a mofo. That was the first time I ever saw huge video screens (where they played the acts performing at Wembley Stadium in the UK). When I went back to college that fall semester, I saw Y&T opening for Motley Crue on the Theater of Pain tour at Richfield Colisseum in Cleveland. It's both a shame and a good thing that cellphones with cameras didn't exist to capture the events... -Dan
    • wowser, great story. And to see Phil as well. Never saw Lizzy or Lynott solo  
    • Yeah the tracks on California Metal were amazing. Had no idea they recorded more.
    • Packaging is an absolute disgrace and I've posted that on the band's FB. Album is good...
    • Huge MEH from me. THIS is the BEST song you could find to relaunch a brand?
