It's not a 'return to form' in terms of rocking in the classic late 80s early 90s vibe but for my tastes it's a return to form in terms of enjoyable rock/pop with a more upbeat vibe overall and less dull ballads (though there are still 3 or 4 on the deluxe 17 tracks edition but 7 of the first 8 tracks are upbeat rock/pop with catchy enjoyable anthemic choruses I'd say). Not a classic but very

Good track and for me the whole album is their most solid consistent and rock orientated upbeat album since 'Have a Nice Day'. Definitely not as good as that superb album though but very good and glad to hear Bon Jovi having I think 7 of the first 8 tracks being upbeat with just 1 slightly dull ballad 'Labour of Love', deeply average track for me. From the first week of listening I'm enjoy

Interesting and well written review for sure but from the tracks this reviewer doesn't seem keen on that I love I'll assume I'm going to enjoy this new CD. For those who are enjoying it (still not released yet though surely?) is it worth paying extra for the deluxe bonus tracks or just stick to buying the regular UK version without all those extra tracks? Are the bonus tracks worth £3 or £4

Superb and highly consistent modern rock band with a large and growing back catalogue. Saw them live in Birmingham UK a couple of years ago and they put on an incredible show. Loads on Spotify to sample and enjoy folks!

Now this is better. Announced 6 months early and a top support act for the main band too makes it very appealing. Note to brain to sort this one!

Yeah I'd have loved to go to Tyketto and other gigs coming up but with limited budget these days and wife & 2 young children I'd already booked Mitch Malloy, Ash and Goo Goo Dolls gigs for this autumn before numerous others were announced all in the same period. Too much all in same period (and not announced far enough in advance to prioritise sometimes I've found).

Flipping belting return to the modern hard rock anthems of early albums. Absolutely love this team & this is AN at their best for me!

+4 or something. I get the criticisms and everybody likes different things but I enjoy modern day Bon Jovi and am really liking these first 2 singles so far. Sounds upbeat and rocking to my ears and anthemic so bring on more of this I say!

I enjoy all the new Europe albums to one extent or another (though not as much as their classic trio of late 80s/early 90s gems). The latest one is good and consistent but no real stand out tracks for me that I really love where all other 4 newer albums have at least 3 or 4 tracks I adore and other more average ones for my tastes. I agree personally very much with earlier comments that 'Secret

I've heard it a good 5 or 6 times now and it is a grower and is very solid and consistent for sure. Nowhere near as good as the classic superb debut for my tastes but a very enjoyable album with great vocals, some anthemic rockers and quality ballads and one that if you're a fan of Mitch Malloy you will surely either like or love. Kind of 7.5/8 out of 10 for me and in the same ballpark as 'II'

Chris Tomlin is excellent and very consistent (only issue being a Ten like problem of releasing a new CD each year that can effect quality control and if he stuck to 1 every 2 years and put the best 5 or 6 tracks from each of the 2 albums in 2 years you'd have a pure belter). Best albums of his in my book are 'Not To Us' (very anthemic and I do get the U2 vibe in places but very different voca

Interested and borderline excited as I did enjoy the single as a fairly typical anthemic Bon Jovi track post 'Crush' album period. Up and positive lyrics with a great chorus. Not epic but enjoyable for me. Time will tell but any band capable of the superb 'Have a Nice Day' CD in recent years still have it in them to produce some magic in my book. Definitely hoping for much better than the last

Yeah got this through at the weekend and I'm struggling with it on production and song quality a little. Very mixed vibes for me at the moment, on one hand the songs are more varied than on II that I really like but did find a bit samey in places but there is something about the production that I'm not quite sure about so far. Not sounding terrible but also not sounding quite right to my ears.

Very good indeed and got me interested. Love all their DV stuff though the first 2 albums are by far the best for sure. I did enjoy 'Dig in Deep' though as a sort of 8 out of 10 return to form with many gems and a nice overall vibe. Just a little too laid back to be up there with the first 2 classics.

Like this bit of fun. For me it would have to be either Harem Scarem, Petra or Def Leppard. If I'm pressed I'd go Petra for the uplifting lyrics for me in my Christian faith alongside the glorious music and melodies...just!

No way! There's a blast from the glorious Pakaderm/Elefante brothers influenced Christian rock past! Just love bands from that era like The Brave, Fear Not, Guardian of course, Halo/Scott Springer and this brilliant one off Mark Pogue & Fortress CD. Will definitely look into that, cheers. 'Who Do I Believe?' is one of my favourite Christian rock tracks of all time. Powerful, melodic and fa

As said before on other thread I love Mitch Malloy albums and this rocking new tune sounds fresh passionate and superb to me. Gave me the extra nudge to book tickets to see him again here in old blighty at Bilston in September. Should be a fun night :-)

Cracking melodic rock anthem! Love this and looking forward to the exciting news of a new album too :-) Great news all round and bring on that UK tour this autumn! I adore the debut album, thought 'Shine' was a quality comeback album to the scene and very much enjoy II also. A growing quality catalogue of melodic rock anthems to call upon for the gigs. Nice one Mr. Malloy!

Very tough choice for me 're favourite Petra album. Huge fan of the John Schlitt era 1986 to present day. Probably 'On Fire' or 'No Doubt' I reckon.

I prefer the original track but it's an excellent new version & the whole album is a superb collaboration of my 2 favourite Christian rock bands of all time. Petra come out on top for me especially 'On Fire' 'Beyond Belief' 'Unseen Power' 'No Doubt' & 'Jekyll & Hyde'. Whiteheart were definitely more diverse & creative though with superb Rick Florian vocals & quAlity musi

Had this album for a week or so now and it's a top blend of the voice of Petra John Schlitt with the songwriting and variety of tracks from the skilled pen and production skills of Billy Smiley from Whiteheart. Loads of other Christian rock legends involved too (Dann Huff on 2 solos who was originally in early Whiteheart band plus Phil Keaggy, Michael W. Smith, several other former Whiteheart

Haha come in City boss number whatever in the last 7 seasons (though post Fergie United have 3 in 4 seasons admittedly). Hoping this is Mourinho's time to shine & build a longer term legacy & Ibrahimovic should be a cracking signing & influence on Rashford & Martial as long as he doesn't block their development!? Hmmmm time will tell!

Wow what a tough call indeed! 2 true genre classics in my top 10 or so albums of all time with 2 incredible vocalists full of heart emotion & immense vocal talent. If pushed I'd probably just go with Alias for individual classics & overall consistency but a half & half combo of the best 6 from each would be epic!! Love these 2 vastly underrated bands & peeved I'll probably nev

Hi Don and yeah Kutless do albums most years still and they're always very good but to be honest recent ones have been a little more generic and worship focused with 1 or 2 all out rockers. This new album 'Surrender' is a very welcome return to form for me, with hints of the worship tunes there still but lots more proper Kutless rock anthems and a superb closing epic closing track. Well worth
