I get that you don't want 'rehashed' sounding stuff by Jamison,Niv. BUT--in all fairness, isn't most of what we still enjoy about the melrock scene of 'today' consisting of that retro rock vibe of past glories? Only put in a new package? Here's my take: Survivor was a cool band for it's time. But not everyone liked their very 'cliched' style of melrock. It was cliched even back then,to a degree. iT's really tough in the here & now to recreate that format w/o copying too closely. I still maintain that NTL is a pretty darn quality replica of the Survivor days. Is it fresh and new? In some ways--of course. It was just released a month or so back. But--it's SUPPOSED to be paying homage to those glory days. Quite obvious really,and Erik wouldn't deny that I'm sure. Unfortunately,for your tastes-this comes too close in being the very same exact style. Yet-think about this: If Survivor released another cd right after Too Hot To Sleep that was similar in style to that (like the new JJ cd),fans would have lapped it up and likely called their 'best yet!'. Most of us here WANT ourlongtime heroes to write in a similar format to what we loved about them in their heydays. Or new bands that harken back to those times. My fav cd of '12 is Night FLight Orchestra. It sounds exactly like a great album from the mid to late 70's,done by (of all people) modern metallers. As mentioned--Survivor is/was a tough band to 'modernize',with all there cliched stylings. Guess all this new material is simply too close to home for you,and that's understandable. Some of us still enjoy most of it,tho. Cheers, T
