Sounds about like one would expect--current Dare sound, more guitars. Anyone that was expecting the return of Vinny Burns to magically transport Dare back to the Out of the Silence or Blood From Stone era was going to be in for a rude awakening, but I can't imagine very many people would realistically expect that either.

let's see how this stacks up...I'll leave Hard Rain out of this since everyone else is, even though the first album is rather enjoyable.

If all you want is the rock material, the first two albums are pretty much the limit, with maybe CBTS2 on the far fringe. Still, for melodies and mood, Dare has the market cornered with their own sound. My personal thoughts.... Out of the Silence....classic. What more needs to be said? Songs and mood combine for one of my all-time favorite albums. Return the Heart and The Raindance ar

The main difference I see in Magnum pre and post reformation is the type of songs being recorded, and the change in chorus writing. In the "old days", you had the pop songs, the rock songs and the progressive tempo-changing songs. In the recent stuff, you have almost lost all of the pop, and the tempo changes consistently in all songs (slow verse, heavier bridge, and mid-tempo to fast

What I tend to do is rate the songs themselves on a 1-10 scale (1 = horrible, 10 = classic), then simply do an average of the ratings. Obviously, not every song is an all-time classic, so it brings a bit of separation between the good, the very good, and the oh-so-hard-to-achieve truly great albums. Kevin

Think the title is a bit misleading. You can read it as "people won't listen to anything new after 33".....or you can read it as "people don't experiment to find new genres/styles of music after 33". I think the article is closer to the 2nd interpretation. The way I read the article is that people tend to listen to what is popular in younger years, then in their twenties,

was wondering when this was going to be officially announced. Judging by what was said here and another video out there, Independence Day is pretty much the final nail in the coffin for there ever possibly being a Survivor reunion. Hopefully, the album will be good. Kevin
