Idle Cure 'Eclipse' album is cracking and so are some of their earlier more melodic/AOR styled albums. Top band. For modern Christian rock it's the likes of Disciple, Skillet, Switchfoot, Red, Kutless, Thousand Foot Krutch and Jeremy Camp that do it for me.

Yes Decyfer Down debut and Crash are amazing and their new album out in the last year is superb too. Really good modern hard rocking stuff. 7eventh Time Down debut has some brilliant Nickelback/Daughtry style rockers though it's patchy, second album is in the same style but far more consistent and up there with 'Leave This Town' almost for me and the latest 'God is on the move' is very good bu

Guardian 'Fire & Love' and 'Miracle Mile' are timeless melodic rock classics. Whiteheart albums from 'Freedom' through to 'Highlands' are all superb classy melodic rock Christian albums. Fear Not CD is fantastic heavier rock, more akin to maybe Skid Row style and Mark Pogue & Fortress is gloriously melodic with a fantastic voice and some big choruses. Brian White & Justice 'L

Well I'm super biased with my favourite band of all time here but what a cracking anthem. Superb and super excited for another HS gem of a CD to come :-)

Always a joy and thrill to hear a new Harem Scarem album. Awesomely consistent and top class band. The best for me!

My thoughts exactly Troy! He and the band haven't got a massive back catalogue of output but the Blue Tears debut, Attraction 65 CD and Michael Sweet album he produced and co-wrote lots of are just pure melodic rock bliss (and with a quality production and modern rock twist with A65). 3 truly class albums!

Like this new song but first 2 sounded solid but definitely lacking the old hooks of first 3 albums and the first 3 or 4 of the second phase of the band. Last 2 albums very good but rather samey and lacking classics for my tastes and this one sounds like it's going to continue that trend. Just missing out a bit on the killer hooks and big choruses alas (as I'm a huge fan of first 7 HofL albums

Always top of any list for new albums for me and by the comments it sounds like yet another belter from this truly world class act :-) BRING IT ON!!!

I'm sadly with many guys here. Absolutely loved original band and the superb 'World Upside Down' and 'Cartesian Dreams' CDs but the last 2 have just been very generic and lacking in variety, changes of temp and the big classic choruses of old. Hoping for better things with a new CD but sounds like they're continuing in same vein alas.

I loved first 3 House of Lords albums plus first 3 ones in second chapter of the band but last 2 albums have been a bit samey & lacking in top quality of songs. Still good but more 7 out of 10 albums where many of the previous albums I'd have given 8 or 9 personally. Hoping for more variety & a return to top form but will need to hear this one before buying this time I feel.

I'm a big fan of Winger and 'Pull' is my favourite album closely followed by 'In The Heart of the Young'. I do enjoy the new more mature and varied sounding albums though I think they lack the big choruses at times of the first 3 albums a touch. Still very enjoyable and a truly class act and of the 2 most recent albums I most enjoy the latest 'Better Days Comin' for it's variety and stronge

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!
