Would you say this one is their most AOR sounding album thus far? Songs are great, just needed them to rock a little harder than they do.

Got the whole album from the media section of Nuclear Blast. If you liked the bands previous material, then you will like the new album. Can't help but think of Kiss when I hear that guitar tone!!

This is a really solid album tbh. I was pleasantly surprised. The only track I don't really like is 'The Art Of Letting Go'. Love the title track and 'Hit The Wall' and 'The Other Option is catchy as hell and appropriate to my age(those that have heard it will understand). I think this is the bands best since Cartesian Dreams IMO. Well worth buying...

What a super super album. Did not think they would come close to matching Armageddonize, but this is as close to it as possible tbh. I've given it at least half a dozen spins now and although some of the songs might not be as immediate as their last album, after a few spins it all clicks. Agree with Andrew. 100% is what this album deserves. Their last album might end up being a slightly better al

Danger Danger Four The Hard Way Screw It! Revolve Gildersleeves Dawn Cockroach and Rare Cuts are more like compilations for me. Rare Cuts I didn't really care for, and Cockroach was fantastic so would slot somewhere in the top 3 or 4 albums by the ban for sure. Was great to hear both vocalists singing the same songs. Hard to believe in 28 years the band have only released half a dozen stu

I have it and liked it. I'm not sure why people are complaining about him writing about himself in his autobiography?? A lot of the first two thirds of the book looks at life on the road and his friendships with some of the biggest names in hard rock/metal. I quite liked the stories tbh. I would have liked more stories about him hanging with his own band, but it just seems like Bach was never rea

I heard the Melodica and Bone Machine albums. Wasn't a huge fan of Melodica, but Bone Machine were awesome! Yes the sound quality of those albums were subpar, but weren't they independently released albums? Yes, I'm not a musician and I can't explain what buttons needed to be pushed, or what knobs needed to be turned. Music is subjective. What you like, I might not, and that is cool. I think

I wish the album had a bigger production. The songs deserve it. Really enjoying the album though. Ted is on fire atm. Loved his latest solo album and this one is great too. Some really catchy and cracking hard rock tunes. Can see a lot of people loving TMF...

Agree this is their best so far. I think they have progressed nicely. This one seems like more of a mix of old school Lizzy with some classic 80s hard rock. Always liked Rickys voice. The Almighty were a great band and his new solo album is a cracker too..

Can't wait. Loved their last album. Some incredibly catchy songs on Thirteen. If anything, I'm hoping to hear a little more heaviness but if they produce anything that is around the quality of Thirteen, then it won't matter..

I think The Defiants album is a solid piece of hard rock for sure. I'm glad some people here absolutely love the album, as I think Danger Danger is a cruelly underrated band in this genre (maybe not under valued on this site though). But I think The Defiants album is a solid 8/10 for me, maybe could stretch that out to 8.5. It's a fun party album. Hysteria is a genre defining album though. A

Agree with most here. The band need to freshen things up. Haven't liked either new song I've heard.

Damned by a country mile. Blessed sounds like a b-sides album to me. Can't fault the first album at all. Besides the awesome ballad Helicopters, nothing stands out on the 2nd record.

As I now have a lady friend who lives in Portland who also happens to be a flight attendant, making one of these festivals is now a possibility depending on the time of year etc. I'd just love to see a nice mix of European artists and American artists on the bill. Below would be my personal preference of artists I'd love to see: Vega Eclipse H.E.A.T. Brother Firetribe Pretty Maids Jor

Avantasia was a clear standout for album of the year for me. Surprised to not see it on anyone's top 5 at all here.

I don't think their last album was a huge disappointment, but it was probably their weakest album to date. Too poppy for me. Some good songs, but hugely missing the heavier side of their sound. Halestorm were in the same boat for me. Last album like Shinedown really lacked any balls.

Love this band. Their last album was incredible as well. Agreed this album wont attract new fans, however old school fans should be ecstatic. Early contender for album of the year..

Meh. Average. Bit like the new Voodoo Circle. I love Voodoo Circle and loved Readman's voice. Their last alnum was incredibly solid. The new singer leaves me cold tbh..

Arcade is still one of the best hard rock records ever made, let alone in Pearcey's career. I like Ratt, but they were always hit and miss for me. There was always a lot of filler on their albums. I don't have any issues with his voice, but I can see why people would be turned off. It is unique. I'll check out his new solo album but I aren't expecting much from it.

Congrats to the band. They deserve any success that comes their way. The new album is unfortunately for me their worst in the bands catalogue though. It is just dull.

Too many songs. Too many ballads. Not enough catchy songs. Not enough hooks. Their weakest album by a long way ever IMO. After the very solid Bang!, this is a huge disappointment.

Track 2 'Electrified' is great. Then it's not until track 9 'Tequila Symphony No. 5'(which is just an ok track) where the pace picks up again. Then it's back to back ballads again, and not even good ones. Thank god the album finishes with two rockers, 'My Oh My' in particular is solid. The bonus tracks are rockers as well thank goodness, and both are good songs, however is it just me or is 'Walk

I love this band but I'm really struggling with this album. Too many softer tracks and not enough memorable choruses or hooks for me. I find myself pressing the skip button a lot on this album, which I'm not sure I've ever done with a Gotthard record. On a par with Firebirth maybe, but IMO it doesnt touch Bang! Unfortunately. Hoping it clicks for me at some stage..

Really like the first two songs we've heard, however i agree with those that say it would have benefited more with a better production. It just doesnt quite sound right.

Cant wait to hear them try, but I just cant imagine them topping Armageddonize which to me was the perfect hard rock album. If they get anywhere near that Ill be super impressed..

I loved Bang, and Ive always laughed at people judging an album based on short samples, but I tend to agree. I'm not feeling it. The three full songs ive heard are fairly dull, and these 90 sec samples dont get me excited at all. Ill still buy the album and hope for the best..

Pump is one of my favourite albums of all time and yes, it was the bands last great album. Very hit and miss after that, more miss than hit. Get a Grip was a huge disappointment for me. Rocks still remains their greatest album though, and I only saw them live for the first time a couple of years ago here in Melbourne and they still put on a super rock show. Would be happy for them to continue

2016 can GAGF.. Yet another sad loss. I'm guessing she was going to play some role in the next Star Wars movie too. Shame we won't see Luke and Leia reunited.
