BLASPHEMERS!
Mine still hasn't arrived yet (it went back down to £9 on Amazon, so I dove in!)
But that's what I felt like with the debut... it was so overhyped that it was quite underwhelming.
Now there is stuff on it I enjoy, and stuff on it I skip, like many any album on my iPod.
Sadly, reading that this is "the greatest AOR album ever made" has already given me a bias in the "overhyped" part of my brain...
And my total disconnect with most stuff that Erik Martesson writes, but ya'll know about that... Again, it's writing trying to pretend to be someone else "this is the album Journey would make with Jeff", "this is the best Survivor album that Survivor never made", "this is what Dennis DeYoung would sound like is he sang rock again", etc etc... So it's always going to fail to live up to that hype, and it's never going to come from the heart if it's "mimicking" someone else...
But I digress...
I look forward to hearing it as soon as it arrives, and I hope I enjoy it more than I fear that I won't...
But it's nice to see there are some like-minds here at least.
