"Can you define what you wanted or expteced and that you didn't find on the album?"

I tried to explain that, to me, it's not about what I want or expect. I judge the album on it's own merits - always do! If I like what I'm hearing, I don't care who it is or what they've sounded like in the past. If I don't like it, then it has nothing to do with that it doesn't sound like anything the band/artist has done in the past.

"It has strong melodies, great hooklines, great playing/singing, clever arrangements...."

Everything regarding this is subjective. How do you explain if you don't like a melody or a hook? You know, quite a few on this board loved the latest Mr.Big and I'm pretty sure they'd say there are great melodies and hooks on that one....you didn't think so.

"I think the problem is that many people on this board can only say what they don't like or want, but can't name what they actually want"

I don't find that strange in any way, to be honest. Sometimes I don't have aclue why certain bands don't click with me....sometimes it's very obvious. Some people don't feel the need to explain why they don't like some music.

When it comes to Into The Great Unknown, I tried my best to explain this in the previous thread too.

I can safely say that it's not even close to being as good as Tearing Down The Walls, or Address The Nation either for that matter. The rocking tracks are weak and plain silly (Bastard, Shit City, Best Of The Broken), in my opinion. Can't stand those nursery rhyme chantings (na-na-na's and wo-oh's). Now, these parts are hard to explain or describe in writing, but I'm sure most people know which parts I'm talking about. The same with Do You Want It. To me it sounds like calculated ways to try and play a trick on your subconscious. They want it to creep up on you and make you go and sing those lines in your head after a while. Just like kiddy songs...but it just sounds infantile and corny, IMO (Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Pink all have adapted to this strategy).

The unnecessary foul language is another point drawn off. Don't get that, at all.

We Rule is just way too Queen and it would've been fine had not the chorus also been so obvious attempt to sound like Queen. It's just too much.

Time On Our Side is an OK track, but it's a little too dance/radio oriented for me. A try to appeal to a wider audience.

Redefined, Eye Of The Storm and the title track are great songs.

So, overall, a disappointment which I don't see will change. Some songs may grow and I already like some....but it'll never match their two previous albums.

There you go, Marco.
