Both new Hardline and Tyketto songs are a bit meh. Not a massive fan of either. Was hoping for a lot better tbh..

Not sure what everyone was expecting. It's kind of like the new Bon Jovi single, that If you lower your expectations to nothing, then the song isn't so bad. I actually think this song isn't that bad. Meatloaf hasn't been able to hold a note for years, so his voice is what I expected. Frail and falling apart, barely whispering his parts. But the song itself isn't too bad. Certainly doesn't make me

Not sure why some people are saying it's a return to the glory days. It's an ok song, but it sounds like every other lead single he's had in the modern era tbh. My expectations for this band has dropped so low, they could release 4mins of silence and It would reach my expectations...

It's ok. I think musically it is better than their last one, but after a few listens i still prefer the previous albums songs. It's solid enough but I was hoping for a little better tbh.

Wow! Super groove and what a guitar solo which gives the song a real retro feel. This guy can do no wrong in my book. Absolute genius. Bring on the new album!!

Listening to it now. Enjoying what I'm hearing, but not sure it is up to their last album which was fantastic. 'Divide and Conquer' 'A Phantasmic Parade', 'Tear Down The Walls'(heavy heavy song but wow) and 'The Cosmic Algorithm' are probably my favourite tracks thus far. The 11 and a half minute album closer has everything as well. Can see that becoming one of my faves also. A very nice way to e

Definitely a grower. I struggled with it the first couple of listens. Tough to follow up a perfect album like Hymns For The Broken though. Will be interesting to see if they come close. They haven't made a bad album IMO. Can't wait...

Would love a return to form from Tate. 'Re-inventing The Future' was a cracking tune on his last album, and 'Seduction of Decay' from the latest Avantasia album that he sung on was fantastic as well. However, they are just a couple of songs from a decade or more time frame where he has released so much bland and lifeless music. I just don't think he's capable anymore of releasing a full album tha

Definitely one of the albums of the year for me. Really grew on me tbh. The more I spun it, the more i liked it. For me it is one of those rare albums where the first few songs are the weakest(still good songs) and the album gets better and better as it goes along. A really big step up from their last album which was solid enough. If you like Buckcherry or bands similar, then you will love this a

Agree with most on here. This album will cure insomnia for sure. Just seems lifeless to me. I think if you took each individual song by themselves, the songs wouldn't be too bad. But as a whole album, it just sends me to sleep. Like someone else said, the production is really lacking. The album is so one paced and similar, I really could not tell most of the songs apart. Shame as I really liked t

Yeah, I can't stand country usually, so don't let that put you off listening to this. If I have one criticism of this album is that it is a touch too ballad heavy. But it doesn't bother me when the quality is high. I much prefer this disc to the last Aerosmith album which came and went for me. 'Somebody New' is a great little hard rock/pop song tied up with a banjo (not the annoying kind). 'I Mak

Listening to it now and I have to say that I am loving it a hell of a lot more than I thought I would. I am not a fan of country music, and although this is categorized as a country album, it certainly is more along the line of blues. You can't escape the Aerosmith element either of course. Think a Hangman Jury kind of vibe throughout the album. Steven sounds fantastic as always and he does a gre

Movie is brilliant fun. Reminds me a bit of Ash vs Evil Dead. Very decent soundtrack as well from memory. Aussie band Elm Street have a couple of tracks on there which are cool as well...

I certainly don't see any of these bands being the next 'big thing'. Muse maybe the closest, but each of these bands are an acquired taste meaning their music won't get supported by the general masses. I really don't see many if any big acts coming through that will sell out arenas and stadiums on a consistent basis across the world. Some of them make good enough music that they should, but t

Since 'Letters' my interest has slowly waned for sure. That was 12 years ago! Even on that album you could hear the last remnants of Marvelous 3 being kicked to the curb. I am all for artists going in any direction they want to, I have just really struggled with his direction since Letters. The odd song here and there has been good, but I just think he's forgotten how to write a good bunch of son

Great album. Really solid. I've enjoyed all their albums tbh but this one is probably their most polished. These guys are right up there with Eclipse and H.E.A.T. for my favorite hard rock bands atm.

1. Van Halen (masterpiece) 2. 5150 (love every song) 3. 1984 (3 of the best hard rock songs ever written) 4. Women and Children First (first half of the record is faultless) 5. Van Halen II (after the slow start, it picks up nicely) 6. A Different Kind of Truth (surprisingly a great record) 7. OU812 (solid album) 8. F.U.C.K (a few fillers but still solid) 9. Fair Warning (Unchained saves

I'm surprised by the amount of people not liking Ted's new album. I rate it highly. It was inevitable that The Defiants cd was going to be compared to Ted's solo album. But they are two different sounding records. One is more party rock n roll while the other is more AOR based. I just think Ted's has more longevity and every song is a winner, while The Defiants has a few filler tracks. Would love

No disrespect to Ted's past solo material, but this is the best CD that has his name on the front cover. Thoroughly enjoying it...

Hmm. I love the band, but they have distanced themselves further from their past with this new album. This will definitely see 'old school' GGD fans drop off completely. This is a pop album. Lots of sample type of stuff and a real lack of guitars in the mix. 'Over and Over' is a great modern day GGD song, and the Robbie song 'Free Of Me' is probably the closest thing to an old school GGD song on

Agree with most that this is my least fave on the album. Maybe it is because most of the other tracks are really solid, but this one just didn't connect with me..

Chorus annoys me tbh on this song. Probably the weakest track on the album for me. Love the album though. Don't really hear the Lynch Mob comparisons..

For me it has some really strong elements from their heyday in the 70s. Personally I think it is better than anything since 'Busted'. As far as what album it sounds like, that is pretty tough to say as it has some bits from all eras plus one or two things we really haven't heard from them before. But it definitely has a 70s vibe throughout..

It's a tie between his solo album 'Worldchanger' which still remains easily his best solo album, and also Masterplan's 'Aeronautics' which was just a masterclass in how to do power metal. His latest CD about Dracula was his best in years too, but not quite up to the heights of these two albums IMO.

The bonus track 'I Am The Lion' is worth tracking down if you like the heavier side of BSC. It is probably my favourite track on the album.
