well, after hearing War of kings single I couldnt stand it, I was wondering this is a single ? But after a month it became quite enjoyable tune. Now with album its similar, after one listen theres not much there to like. But further listens are very rewarding, I notice the rich keybord textures, also guitar solos are quite melodic. The vocal hooks and choruses are there, but not immediatem, onl

I think basically it is similar, after all the same swedish producers are reponsible for sound and have writtne many songs. But I think new one is better because some of the "leftover" songs have despite rewritten choruses kept some 80s Scorpions spirit and the "hit" songs are really catchy, and the ballads for me are better.

To most of music I listen on my laptop speakers. They are said to be quite good, but you know, ist just laptop. Or in my car stereo, but I like to have Treble setting a bit higher than bass, because I like to hear voice and guitar. And there is no way you can really hear bass guitar in such envirnoment. You can hear bass in a melodic rock genre only if you listen on real loudspeakers and even

They are just for the bottom line, now. They dont think few years ahead. If they put 1 younger band as support, this would present a possibility to create a new source of income in few years, at least respected support act , if not the new star.

Ok if they want to cover Purple so they should. But the biggest problem in this is making a big secret out of it, counting down the days for this ?? Because of that most of the public had expected album with newly written music, and this is why so many are dissapointed.

http://www.mtv.com/artists/europe/ Not bad, the guitars are not downtuned, they are quite melodic, just I miss the real chorus hooks(days of rocknroll). But nice tunes, both seem to be growers , for more listening

Previous 2 LP did nothing for me. I tried listening to this and it clicked! Therea are really good choruses and poverful production. Some things going against it: The 2 videos released are for my taste among weaker tracks, why not release Wide open ? Also the release date is unfortunate, with so many releases from well known bands like Thunder, Scorpion, Revoplution Saints, Black Star riders

Was not fan of Stryper or Lynch before. But this although being just a project has great songs written by artists themselves, has the performance and the sound, so I had to get the CD.

but the first single is great (heard in interview that the 2 part chorus was inspired by Mutt lange writing style) and Klaus Meine still sings like he used to.

I tried, but never knew what the fuss os about eclipse. Even the samples and youtube videos did nothing for me from the previous albums. Go figure, because I like W.E.T a lot. Now this latest after listening to samples and single sounds very good to me. So looking forvard to it.

@Geir, thanks for mentioning Schooltree..heard just first 3 track but theres a lot of melody and a lot going on in every track, thanks, will listen more to it! Speaking of female fronted bands, my secret pleasure is the canadian pop folk duo Dala, who write wonderful acoustic songs.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsBYnQoVEQw

After hearing these 2 new songs my first opinion on both is quite different. O first few listens I couldnt get War of kings, it does nothing for me, no real chorus, strange choice for single. But I expect it to grow with more listens, and it wil be better in context of album. I much more like HOle in my pocket from the first listen, it has nice driving riff, effective chorus. To me it would

In a recent interview Michael Sweet gave very interesting and detailed information about the cost of a production these days. HE said he would not want to be involved in a 10 000 $ project, and that solid budgets where you can get good sunding record are these days 15, 20, 25 000 $ per project... Listen after 12 minutes about that.. http://talkingmetal.com/digital/2015/02/02/one-on-one-wit

@deflep, forget about getting sound similar to those albums. Guitars were played there by Willis and Clark and it was produced by Lange. All thre were not recording this time. For them their roots are what was popular in the 70s on british charts..Queen, T-Rex, Slade,... On the other side, they are doing something right, filling arenas year after year with hits to thousands of casual fan

ok, but they already paid homage to their roots with the covers album, and also on the other albums there are always some songs in the style of 70s queen or sweet. I am still hoping for a good album, the Sparkle Lounge has some great songs.

Actually I think they dont't want to be modern rockers, they want to have this old classic 70s hard rock sound. The last album Bag of bones was not too bad, I listend on spotify and there were some nice hard rockers there, of coures different than their 80s sound. After first listen this new song is not instant, strange choice if this is first single.

I knew very little about Lynch's previous records but I liked a lot the first two videos that were released on youtube. Then I read this interview with him and he has some interesting ideas and talks very openly, not only about music but also life in general., like this one "I introduced the idea of making it equal. Just quarter splits, everybody got equal control and say, and you know,
