Ten Seconds Over Tokyo CD world tour

Recommended Posts

OK I bought this CD by a band called Ten Seconds Over Tokyo...it's pretty dull and to tell the truth it's not even worth re-selling even if anyone wanted it.

So I thought in the interests of promoting world peace <_<<_< what about sending it on a journey around the world or at least HH members.

 

Here's how it works, the 1st person to PM me I'll mail the CD to .... simply take a picture of yourself with said CD and then as soon as you post your pic then the first person to PM you gets it sent on to them .... and so on and so forth...

 

If your going somewhere cool like the Grand Canyon or Eiffel Tower or even Bert Mucklow's Tyre yard then keep the CD a few months and take it and get the picture taken there!! I'll hopefully track the course of it on it's travels and you never know it might even spend Ten Seconds Over Tokyo ... or at least Tokyo Joes restaraunt haha!

 

 

Dunno if anyone wants to join in on this ... if not it'll probably die a death like most of my other posts hahaha :P Or That little CD will over the next century or so do a lot of travelling!! :P

 

To get this rolling here's the first pic from Manchester, England.

Unfortunately there's nowhere impressive in Middleton so this is taken in the back garden on a cold winters day (you can tell it's cold as I have a scarf on <_< )

One day gone and no PM's doesn't look like anyone wants to take it for a trip!! Maybe I should dress up in a Kimino and make a little shrine, bow to the four corners of the world, cast feathers to the four winds, then sacrifice it to the ancient dragon lord Nickcmotosaki using the element intrinsic to his being FIRE. Then the smoke can rise through the heavens and he will sit on his jade throne and cast good fortune on me!

 

Or I could just bin it!!

 

Come on does anyone want to start? It doesn't have to be anywhere famous, just your garden or on the bonnet of the car. :crying:

Now now lords and ladies, let's not be shy, who'll be next to sample the "drunken" vocal stylings of 10 Seconds Over Tokyo? I await a volunteer's PM...

I think if this is going to be done right you should first post some crazy pics with the cd before soliciting the next lucky "10 seconds..." listener.

Sorry about that BC, that did come off sounding kinda bitchy. Geesh, you would think I could do better on 1 hour of sleep (I love my kids!).

 

It's either my way or the highway!!! :hammer:

 

That sounds better doesn't it? :lol:

 

Seriously, however we all want to do this thing, I'm all for it. :drink: Can't wait to see how far this thing gets! :cheer:

 

Now if I can just remember how to get from the office to my house I should be able to make it to the bed for 18 hours of zzz's. -_-

No worries, the antidepressants are starting to kick in... ;)

 

Seriously it was a good idea, no offense taken. :)

 

I myself just got a rare good night's sleep last night, the previous two nights were a combined total of about 6 hours. 10 years ago playing in the band that was fine, but now it's just too painful... :(

Hey Jim, somebody already spoke for it, but way back when I first got it. I just PM'd them this morning, so if I don't hear back by tomorrow, it's coming to you! B)

Yeah! Great picture!! I can see the joy of the ownership of the disc written across your face  :lol:

 

Did you give it a spin at all Pete?

 

Actually I did, and it's not the worst thing I've ever heard, but it is far from good. Some real nice grooves but then they always seem to f**k them up later in the song. Singer sounds like Michael Hutchence sometimes I thought.

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time.
