Personally I try to get my news from many sources so that I can see issues from all sides...I think the Trump supporters are maybe too close to the issues to see clearly and those that think Trump walks on water and can do no wrong will never change their opinions no matter what he does ... maybe it is easier for those of us on the outside looking in to weigh the issues or maybe we are all biased depending on our influences growing up....
One thing I'm 100% sure of ....I'm very grateful that I'm not black and living in any country that is white dominated....the racism may be more obvious in the US but it exists here in Canada too.... somehow we need to educate everyone about one simple fact...there is only one race and that is the human race....
Review from cgcmpodcast.com (by Trevor “Psychoone” McDougall):
Back To The 80s
In a day that EPs are the thing to do, it’s easy to miss them. They appear, and then poof! They’re gone. Fortunately, I found this one, and the cover caught my eye. As most of the readers know, I am a HUGE fan of that ’80s sound, and era, and this one seemed right in my wheelhouse.
A Brief Background
Born from the ashes of the group Miss December, The Rocket Queen gang is heavily influenced by the sounds of the ’80s & ’90s. Hailing from Zaragoza, Spain, Dolly Glam (Vocals), Gabi Bultaco (Guitar), Gaby Gonzalez (Guitar) Arturo Millán (Bass) and Carmelo Echarri (Drums) first entered the studio in 2015 to record their first EP titled First Round. Since then, like many other bands, they went through some lineup changes and have continued to work in festivals and concerts with many well-known artists.
4 Tracks of ’80s Awesomeness
Back to the 80s is a four-track EP that has those sound bites that any fan of the genre craves. Slick guitars, slamming drums, killer bass lines, and slick, harmonic vocals. The title track has it all. Female vocals could sit along with other female vocalists such as Lee Aaron and Lita Ford just to name a few.
“Little Treasures” follows the title track with leading drums and a great attack from duelling guitars. The production of this EP is worth a mention here as well! Nothing seems to be buried and it’s very slick without being overdone.
“Broken Heart” is another great track featuring some stellar guitar work, not to detract from the rest of the group, however. Aside from the riffs, and pinch harmonics, the drums are pounding here, and the vocals are above reproach. This very well could be a personal favourite from the EP.
Rounding out this EP is “Feel the Night”. Yet another great ending to an EP. Energetic, and fist-pounding! This track is single-worthy representing everything that the band says they are influenced by. This track just oozes the ’80s and is a great way to end an EP leaving the listener wanting more! Great job!
One can only hope that this is a taste of a possible full-length album from Rocket Queen. If this is the sound that they have, then I do want more. However, knowing the industry, and how bands have to raise the money to record these days, I’m truly praying that this EP sells well, and creates a buzz to be able to raise those funds! Until then, I’ll just sit, raise my fist in the air, and go Back To The 80s!

Why is it serious, now? No disrespect to the officers who lost their lives in this, but why is it only serious now?
And, yeah, it is difficult to separate the peaceful protesters from the "thugs." Especially when some of those "thugs" are wearing a badge. That's the whole point.
Just thought I'd bump this after starting to see some positive reviews and knowing that the band has started sending out pre-orders early.
Looking forward to getting this one as I've really dug the first two songs. Reminds me of 80's era Judas Priest mixed with Skid Row or something. I'm generally not huge into "heavy metal" and honestly don't even visit that part of the forum frequently lol. But I always dug Turbo era Judas Priest as they got more melodic then. And of course loved Skid Row's debut. And that where I see this fitting in....sorta heavy metal vibe but still melodic with hooks.
I don't think I've ever had an EP in my top 10 year end list but I see that changing this year with Shriaz Lane's Vibration and this release.
Hopefully a full album isn't too far off
Your second amendment is there to ensure the people have weapons available to defend themselves against the government having learned from the days when we ruled you that sometimes those in power aren't the good guys.
I'm curious. At what point would it be OK for 'the people' to be rise against the government?
When I was at School our English teacher spent a lesson on the Irish troubles. This is back in the day when there was a real threat at any time of a Bomb planted by the IRA blowing you up. He came from the Irish point of view as he had relatives on the Republican side. Was a really difficult conversation but enlightening.
Perhaps think why all these people are so upset.
most news channels.
but it's pretty easy to see that the situation is bad.
multiple instances of peaceful protests being run down. not good
& Trump tweeting 'get tough police' today is not helping bearing in mind what led to this.
No he's a blowhard, his own party is constantly telling him to shut it, but tell me this, how do you separate the peaceful protesters from the thugs? they blend in with the thugs, tonight a 2 cops were killed, now the shits serious, common sense says anyone who is truly there to protest will abide by the curfew laws, and leave, and that's what happened in Atlanta, but it's nothing to do with Trump, he kept his mouth shut for the most part, now that police are being targeted, watch, it's going to get rough, but the police are racist if they defend themselves, Trump has kept it entertaining, because the media is always trying to set him up, I'm not even a republican, I'm a libertarian, but I do not like where the left is trying to take things, I wouldn't say Trump is a conservative, he's a business man, not a politician, the sad thing is, he's done a lot for the black community, I can give you examples if you care, they just don't want it, cause it would mean work, and Sambora, how do you react to a pandemic? don't know if there's a guide for that, I think he did good, he just as you said, needs to stop shooting his mouth off, but the circus is to entertaining.
you know Glen, i don't know where your at, I mean what country, so I'm not sure what news feed you get, the American media, News, Entertainment, music, etc. are extremely slanted, sometimes it's almost nauseating, and they are the fuel behind whats going on, they pick and choose what to report, this stems from their ownership, their really isn't a truly non biased news outlet I can think of in the US anymore, this is truly why Trump calls it fake news, because they no longer even try to hide the fact that its so biased, in truth it's not so much fake, as it is extremely biased, it's a very deep and long story but if you need examples it's completely easy to give you many examples of what im talking about, they report 1 side of issues, and take things so out of context it should be illegal.
