Very diverse and classy album with some glorious gems in there but a little too quirky for my tastes as an overall album. Take the 5 best songs of this and best 5 from 'Because We Can' and you could have an album to rival the classic 'After The Rain' debut I reckon.

Great band and I like this song. Another grower I reckon as Kayaker commented re 'Bully'. If the quality and tunes are there as they were on last 2 albums particularly then this could be another classic!

Ok so first for me House of Lords are amazing and I love a band that produces excellent quality melodic rock albums regularly like these guys over first 3 albums and since comeback in new set up. I've said before my favourites since comeback are 'WUD' and 'Cartesian Dreams'. Both had the hooks and choruses in spades for me and a great balance of quality rockers and moving ballads. This new

How dare you discuss non Frontiers/Escape/AOR heaven bands on this website Michael? ;-) Sounds good though, and must give newie more of a listen. Blissfully melodic and rocking.

Yeah Warrant did record some cracking stuff for sure and I really liked 'Ultraphobic' at the time and still do. Different and moving with the music of that time and the influence of grunge but some quality music on there.

Wow I could type for hours but suffice to say Def Leppard anything from Euphoria and X (other than the odd single), 2 of my favourite albums of theirs that rarely ever gets any tunes played live from and similar for most classic melodic rock bands like Journey, Foreigner, Styx etc. Only bands who played their newer stuff are bands who I prefer the older stuff of (like Europe say for example).

It's a really good album that I'd probably rate very highly as a stand alone is 'Precious Metal' but just not up to the high standards for my tastes of 'Sahara', 'Demons Down', 'World Upside Down' and 'Cartesian Dreams' and James Christian's awesome 'Rude Awakening' solo CD. Hard to be that consistent and all HofL new albums are at least 7 or 8 out of 10 so can't complain too much. Just want a

Terry I do get where you're coming from as the style variety between MK2 HofL is pretty slim overall I guess but the heavier leanings of the last CD and lack of quite such memorable choruses compared to classic like 'WUD' and 'CD' made it much more forgetable for me. Still a decent album definitely but a little HofL by numbers for my tastes. Lacked spark for my tastes. Give me another 'Cartesi

We've been spoilt with Firefest's excellent advance info and offers and superb reliability (with bands pulling out from time to time for their own reasons but always being replaced with excellent quality). As others have said we've also been burned (me included) with Rockfest due at JBs Dudley a few years back that advertised a cracking line up and literally took the money and ran. Won't commi

Very interesting views re House of Lords. For me of the original band it was 'Sahara' I first came across and 'Demons Down' that really blew me away. I enjoyed those albums in reverse order to most I'd imagine (Demons Down best, Sahara second and debut third). Didn't bother with 'Power & Myth' after hideous reviews (and listened to a few bits of it that just sounded out of character for

Me too re awareness of news about Frontiers releases and youtube links to new songs. Get it all from right here and this is a very poor move by Frontiers to treat MR.com so shabbily. It will effect their sales I reckon and is a real shame as for me in the last 10 years it's only the likes of MR.com, Firefest team and Frontiers record label that have kept the whole melodic scene alive and v

Mixed bag of views then re Europe since they reformed and changed their style and I'll add briefly to differing views. Of the new albums 'Secret Society'is also my favourite as it had a great combination of the modern/retro style the guys prefer these days but had the choruses of old school Europe for me. 'Last Look at Eden' is hands down my favourite track since they reformed and right up

Hi all. Just wandering what the deal is with this 'Rockingham' event in October. Lots of top bands lined up but all very 'cloak and dagger' re full info. Tickets available but none of the usual clarity that the excellent Firefest team used to provide months in advance re which bands were performing on which days. full line up confirmations early (though always subject to a few changes an

Sounds great and much more akin to the classic COT debut. Will have to look out for that gig date then once confirmed. Sounds good.

Paper sun live! Wow hope they play that at DL/WS gigs in December. One of my favourite Def Leppard tracks alongside White Lightning, Gods of War, Kiss The Day and some of the other more epic songs. Love those tracks (alongside most other Def Leppard material over the years).

Agreed all round. I was aware of no support from earlier posting and of scheduled on stage time of 8:45p.m. Was running a bit late so glad I didn't miss a top support act in some ways but arrived 8p.m.ish and then stood and stood and stood until they finally hit the stage around 9:10p.m. I dread to think what those who arrived not long after 7 must've felt. Perfect opportunity to showcase N

Thanks for this. I was searching and unsure who support was. Had hoped they might draw in a quality UK based act for the night to do a 30/45 mins set as a bonus but understand they won't and later start works better for me too. Can't wait and bring it on! Safe journey folks (leaving in half hour myself).

Love that review and love FM. Favourite 2 albums are 'Tough it out' and 'Aphrodisiac' by far, 2 absolute classics that are perfect for my tastes. I like 'Indiscreet' but as others say it's a touch too wimpy for me to be up there with these 2. It was 'Someday' and 'Bad Luck' that got me into FM and 'Breathe Fire', 'All or Nothing' etc that cemented them as one of my favourite bands. Live the

Hi melodicrock.com friends. I've had a bit of a 'mare and booked a ticket for HRHAOR Saturday event with Night Ranger as headline act and then realised too late to get a refund for the £70 day ticket that I can't actually go! Doh! So was really thrilled to see they're doing a gig at O2 Islington Academy next Thursday instead. I live in Gloucester and am aiming to leave about 3p.m. to get a

I much prefer old school Europe but enjoy the new stuff too and to me this is very instantly likeable. Rocking and grabbed my attention. Top stuff I reckon and 'Bag of Bones' had real soul and was a real grower for me too. Bring on the new CD!

Loving the new album. Short but very sweet and so consistent, Love all the tracks. Up there with my favourites 'Mood Swings', 'Believe (Special Edition)', 'WOTW' and the hugely underrated 'Human Nature'. Quality throughout. Love the band live too and really think many folks misunderstand them and their stage presence/act. Very biased admittedly but I just love the albums and live perfor

Cheers Woody. Very helpful and I've just emailed HRH staff for advice on that. Much appreciated and would be good to get along if only for a day in the end. Some quality bands lined up there for sure and I hope Eclipse are on same day as Night Ranger as I've never seen them and would love to. FM, Dare. Vega etc and it's an excellent bunch of bands. Sounds good.

Very intriguing. Love the recent solo CD and book and as a Christian and lover of Creed and Scott's solo albums both resonated with me and inspired me hugely. Watching and listening to this video my heart is filled with compassion and prayers for a guy who is obviously at a very low ebb again. Who knows the totaly truth of the situation but for now I will choose to believe Scott's claims a

Hi folks. Just looking at HRH AOR as an option for next year and never been. Not really looking to stay over and it's advertised as 12th to 15th March 2015 yet day passes only talk about Friday and Saturday. So I assume that the Thursday is arrival, actual music and gig is Friday, Saturday then folks can stayover and leave on the Sunday. I can't see any details of which bands are play

Sounds cracking. Real old school Thunder riffs and chorus, groove etc. Love it and adored the first 3 CDs so if it carries on in that vein this could be a special album for 2015.
