You just gotta love all these reliable sources close to the band…theres no record, new or live. There's no band. They don't speak. They are not touring. There is NO Van Halen activity at all for the foreseeable. Nothing is happening ..and BAM…album, remasters, TV appearances and a full US tour.

He did DURAN DURAN's last record ALL YOU NEED IS NOW, and is doing their mew one too. AYNIN is a brilliant record. Ronson is one of those producers / mixers that works with an artist and "knows" what is their best stuff and manages to bring that out of them now..with some contemporary edge.

I posted about this record a few weeks ago. I love the contemporary hard rock/metal meets melodic rock. JSS's vocals and layering of vocals gives it that familiarity many of loved with earlier bands / projects..TALISMAN, HUMANIMAL. If anything, the melodic elements stand out more amongst the riffing and more metal parts. I have all JSSs stuff..and place this up there with some of his best stuff.

Great band, two of my fave records of the last 10 years. The debut was maybe a little better than the follow up. The late 2013 EP I surrender, lived that main track. I wasn't aware that they had called it a day. Lasr year I heard on good authority they were talking to another guitarist (from the UK same era as Girl and other NWOBHM-ish bands) to come in and join Phil, to beef up the sound.

There was a time, YES…loved them. Pre YouTube, pre VHS video…all you had were shitty bootlegs, so getting a great live album was a great way to relive the gig that blew your socks off. Virtually all the live records from mid 70's say thru 90 were good and have that ""classic status as it's all we had.

Just two tracks didn't click for me..9 and 10 I think. The rest is awesome old school 80's early 90's with a fresh coat of paint. Not forced, contrived or sticking of record company "project".

I bought the CD..really good. Wasn't Myke a bespoke personal fitness trainer after he left the bizz after Skin first time around? Sure he was based in Mayfair/London.

Yep…overall, its just not a great recording. As I read elsewhere, its just a warts and all live show…they pressed recorded and let it run. It sounds like they've tried to keep it as is…and these days with YouTube and every Tom, Dick and Harry recording their own souvenir of a show..its not really good enough to release something like this. As a huge VH fan, i'll buy it as I can deal it..

Just sound like DLR live to me. This is what I don't get. I read all these comments, that suggest that back in the day the guy sang like Steve Perry!! DLR always was did a reasonable job in the studio, with the time and breaks in recording to allow for a great rock performance. LIVE…he always sounded (like Vince Neil)..breathless and more like he speaking lines as opposed to singing. Half th

Up the M4…onto the A4 drop of as Julian said in Hammersmith or just before at Chiswick. There are tubes from Acton, Chiswick Park, Turnham Green,…all have tubes that will connect you to one for Islington. 30 min ride to Kings Cross (you have a 10 min walk up to Upper St ) or Angel tube across the road from the venue.

TOTO probably told BK to work on his vocals..that was probably the orders alluded to. I saw them with BK on some of their last UK outings, and BK was clearly on the slide as far as his abilities went. I'm cool with that as we all get older, and in some cases..there is nothing you can do, accept be graceful about it. Who knows…. TD…so thats where he went, he's got his dream gig "pla

Guys..all over the web people are saying that band sounds slow and Mogg is singing to low..this upload (below) and others like it way way to slow…nothing like the true record. So if your judging by some by some uploads, DONT! Go to iTunes or Spotify This is so slow.. http://www.melodicrock.com/phorum52/read.php?1,995409,995450#msg-995450 this one is way to fast…but its nearer to the LP

The new record is the nearest they've sounded to the 80 - 82 period since then. Chris Tsangrides did a much better job on the production and mix, especially on Mogg's vocal tracks and Raymonds keys. Tommy Newton seemed hellbent on mixing the vocals very dry, very high in the mix and sometimes with a horrible chorus / phase effect. I too as a long time fan really struggled with the records

YES, I would have prefered some new music, but thats a pretty good version. Sure, the vocals have a lot of effect on them, but its not a bad remake. I'm interested to hear more..if its all like this. As far as new material goes, I think we're probably done and FOREVERMORE was it.

I hear you guys..but i'm loving the vibe of Soul SirkUS meets Malmsteen / Rainbow with a more - in places only - contemporary modern metal sound. I think the problem is, a lot of the samples i'm hearing are only highlighting the "heavy" parts. There's a lot of melodic rock here, just heavier. Again, thats why I really hope fans of melodic JSS and this genre in general sit down, and h

My copy arrived today - what a great record. Yes, its Jeff and band in "heavy" mode…but its got all great melodic flourishes you would expect from SOTO and those trademark layered vocals. I guess you could say this is like FILTER in some ways (and a heavier TALISMAN / HUMANIMAL), there meaty heavy riff's…some fast paced drum patterns, some plodding dark / minor riffs and progressive

I didn't mean CD volume…I meant the recording has some balls, power and volume with the recorded guitars…like Coming Home etc…I wasn't refering to the mastering.

I'm cool with the songs…and much of the sonics,…but I just want to hear a little bit more grit at times, like the Marshalls are cooking on 11, and Meine not singing everything quite so "twee"…scream a little. I find people that work with the Swedish writers and producers (and other Euro countries), everything always ends being uber produced, uber perfect and "nice"..e

It sounds good sonically…the titles and lyrics are more cheesy than normal..but its the SCORPS right. My issue, is there is no "edge"…listen to any of 78 - 85 records, and there's an edge to them. Its all a little to "nice" now…even the rockers. But..its not going to break the bank so i'll get it.
