Sounds up there with recent top class albums to me. Looking forward to new album as last 2 have been killer for my tastes definitely!

Enjoyed the first The Distance album a lot and liking this new track. Just needs a bit more variety on his albums for my tastes as his voice and songs can get a bit samey and annoying to me about half way through an album sometimes. Very talented though and I love Heartland debut and lots of their output since. Must give that Ozone album a couple of proper listens on Spotify to see if I want t

Stonking track in the vein of my favourites from DL like 'Gods of War' 'White Lightning' 'Paper Sun' 'Kiss The Day' and others of a slightly longer and more epic style. Just love it when they do these tracks. Love the album too and a quality listen with so many classic Def Leppard elements mixed in. Varied and world class in my extremely biased fanboy opinion :-)

First 2 albums are just sheer class, top 10 albums ever for me and genre defining. Was excited by III and several top tracks on it (though a little short and not really a full album). I enjoyed Promise Land lots and still think had they gone the Black Star Riders route (i.e. be a new band with name linked to past like 'Runaways' etc playing the new material plus classic Giant anthems) to ge

What no Bon Jovi 'Burning Bridges' guys?! ;-) (tee hee hee, who will bite?!). For me top albums in 2015 thus far would include Def Leppard and Shinedown's recent releases and then Sweet Lynch would be in there plus Radioactive - Four, Revolution Saints, Kutless latest album for starters.

Sounds decent but all very strange re In Faith album that had potential for me if they took the quality up a notch. I do like the voice but not love it too, a little bit nasal for my tastes. Good track though and if it's as good as the In Faith debut then it would be definitely worth a listen.

Gutted they played this on the tour then but not in Gloucester where I was Saturday night. They were still awesome though and Vega too and played a great selection of tracks. If they'd just added 'All or Nothing', 'Breath Fire' and some of the recent gems like 'Only Foolin' and 'Cold Hearted' I'd have been even happier but still superb performance and top quality support from the excellent Veg

It's definitely hard for any band to beat the perfection of New Jersey to be fair but plenty of songs and albums I've loved since then personally. Each to their own of course but I'm always interested to hear new Bon Jovi albums, often a little disappointed by recent albums but still find at least 4 or 5 tracks I love on every new release and occasionally we get a 'Have a Nice Day' that is my

Yeah would love to buy 'OOTS' with B-sides on it and a quality deluxe version and a new more rocky Dare album akin to a mix of their first 2 albums would be superb. Love those first 2 albums in very different ways and I do like subsequent albums to a degree but nowhere near as good as the first 2 for my tastes.

'Brighter Da' by James Christian/Steelhouse Lane is an epic all time great melodic rock ballad if not mentioned elsewhere as is 'With Heaven in our Side' by Foreigner as a new track on their best of album years ago. Just immense!

Baaaaaaaaah humbug blah blah blah about melodic rock bands. Justin Bieber's awesome though! Hoping for a return to HAND style quality and some cracking upbeat rock music from Bon Jovi again but very unsure without Sambora if that's likely or not. We shall see but a bit excited for now at least. If the samples and new songs come out like Def Leppard's followed by a new album of that quality

Definitely loving it, though on first couple of spins not as much as I'd hoped from Andrew and others reviews but several songs I wasn't so initially taken with a real growers, particularly when surrounded by instant impact melodic rock gems in the running order. An album full of 'Man Enough', 'Energized' or 'Blind Faith' stuff would get pretty boring but slotted in between the classic Leppard

Yeah Bon Jovi getting back to rocking properly again like HAND album and all the classics they did plus Bryan Adams doing a proper rock album again for sure! Daughtry, David Cook, Kutless, Sanctus Real, Jeremy Camp, Audio Adrenaline, The Newsboys and numerous other modern rock bands (particularly Christian bands) getting back to their modern rock stuff and away from the generic sappy, token mi

Wow top news and hope he can sprinkle his magic dust over the next CD as I felt 1st and 3rd were both enjoyable but not quite as great as I'd hoped but the 'What The Hell!' album is fantastic. Looking forward to seeing them and FM again in Gloucester next month :-)

Sounds cracking and already pre-ordered the Classic Rock version with mag and bonus track. Review has got me even more excited for the end of the month. Bring it on (but not the heartbreak ;-) ).

Wow loving this combination. Big rip roaring ballad with 2 class vocalists singing their hearts out, top production and musicianship and oodles of power and emotion. All the ingredients of a classic melodic rock power ballad. Love it!

Have to add 'Sounds of Madness' and 'Amarylis' by Shinedown to the list but as others have commented very tiny number of albums are truly perfect with not 1 average or poor track. I've listed albums I love to bits whether they have 1 or 2 weaker tracks or not. I'd have to include Tyketto 'Don't Cone Easy' also and Signal's only album plus numerous others I've forgotten about!

Interesting combination. I love Steve Overland's FM output and The Ladder (though solo albums and Shadowman albums haven't quite done it for me personally). I love the Steelhouse Lane albums but haven't adored the rest of Slamer's output quite as much. I enjoy the Heartland debut and most albums are good/decent but rather samey for me. He's certainly got a cracking voice if given/producing the

That Alias debut is right up there with the very best of that golden era of music for me 1986-1993 before grunge hit. Most of my all time favourite melodic rock albums by Christian and secular rock bands were recorded in that era and the Alias debut is definitely in the top 10. Of all the incredible Firefest coups to get reformed 3 of the few remaining for my dream bands were Alias, Tower City

Yep 1D have done a tune or 2 with elements of Def Leppard in them rather than vice versa. As others have posted, they release a 'classic' sounding song and get slated for it. Sometimes these legends can't win either way it seems!

Wish I'd read this thread first...aah some positivity about one of the classic bands firing out a big rocking anthem of a new single. Thanks guys as sometimes I wonder if this website forum should be labelled 'slateanythingbybonjoviordefleppard.com' Great big slab of anthemic melodic rock and it's cracking to hear.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Sounds great to me and if this was released by H.E.A.T., Eclipse or many of the other modern newer bands I love (but who in the main are all pretty much reinventing the wheel from the original 80s acts like Def Leppard, Bon Jovi etc) it would be labelled a monster catchy rocking anthem by many on this board I believe. So trendy it seems to mock the very bands who birthed

All 4 sound great to me in different ways and yeah good to hear band evolving but staying broadly with the excellent formula that brought them so much love and adulation in the first place. 'Cut the chord' is a monster anthem for me and the other 3 are all cool tracks in different ways too. Bring on the album :-)

Listened to it a few times now and... 10% is about right ;-) Nah I stand by 50-60% being fair enough and agree very much with comments above re being glad to own the album for the 3 or 4 gems on there that I love despite the 3 or 4 others that are dull and forgettable and a 2 or 3 decent tracks that won't stay long in the memory. Far from classic but much preferred to 'Lost Highway' countri
