Love Mr. Big, however, the 70's vibe with a 'raw' sound has me a bit worried.

His music has been patchy at best since leaving White Lion. I've liked some of it, but haven't been blown away by anything. Besides the first and last song(which is a great track) on this album, it's a snoozefest. Nothing memorable unfortunately, which is a shame. Between this and Cobblestone Street, I think I'm officially giving up on Mr. Tramp...

Much much better. Great song. Great melody, huge chorus. Everything I love about this band. Absolutely craps all over the first song they released which was way too poppy for my liking.

Yep, really liking this one. I think it may even be their best album yet. Very solid from start to finish.

Meh! What, no lyrics about strippers panties??? This isn't Nickelback! The song is literally, just ok. For those that love it, good on ya, enjoy it. I can think of over a hundred songs Ive heard this year I think is better. It's fairly bland, the chorus is ok but unfortunately, everything these guys do now, sounds pretty much the same. They peaked with 'ATRR', and have been on a slow downward

Yeah, besides Priest and Faith No More, the line up is quite bleak! Stretched out over 2 days now too. Slipknot headlined 2 years ago. Godsmack and Papa Roach will be ok, but where are the European bands??? The festival just seems to rotate the same bands through every 2 years now. I'll risk not buying a ticket and hope Priest and Faith No More do side shows.

The whole ep is just as expected. Ordinary. Don't bother for those sitting on the fence to buy. Saying the word F*** in a song these days isn't controversial. It can have impact used at the right time, but this just stinks of a band trying to get some headlines again. I can't see this equating into more albums or ticket sales in any way shape or form for the band.

Lead singer on last year's Silent Force album - Rising From The Ashes. A very solid release too...

Wow! Really? Sounds very good to my ears. I think it was a good idea to change up personnel. The last album was good, but it was all sounding very similar. Looking forward to this one.

Stryper easily. His solo stuff is ok. Just doesn't blow me away like some of the Stryper material does. I dig his solo stuff, but there are too many fillers for me. I do like how each of his solo albums have a different feel and sound to them though. But Stryper have a great back catalogue now, only enhanced by their more recent output as well.

Couldn't agree more. Solinger does ok, but as this is the best stuff they have done musically since STTG, I just can't help but think how much better it would be with Bach on vocals. Parts of this ep in particular remind me of STTG. Rats In The Cellar is a cracking cover too. Well done to the boys on this release. Better than the first ep by a little way IMO. And did I hear they are releasing

Last track is a cracker - Rock & Roll Showdown! The album is solid from start to finish. Everything you'd expect from old school Kix. Probably missing another couple of standout killer tracks, but it's a solid album with hardly a filler. So pretty happy with my copy.

Really love their past two albums. This song I'm not sold on tbh. Too poppy and happy for me maybe? The leading singles from their past albums have been way way stronger than this IMO. I wish they put James's solo song - 'Learn To Hate You' on the album. That's a superb track. Still looking forward to the album, I'm sure it will be solid. Just not in love with this single.

Bloody good follow up to a bloody good debut. Really enjoying this album on first couple of listens. It's fooking fantastic! Equally as good as their debut IMO..

Love the Tea Party. I'm going to see their show in Melbourne. Seen them a few times before they split. And have seen Jeff's solo show a couple of times as well, as he's been living in Australia and touring. You should check out 'The Edges Of Twilight'(arguably their best album) and work your way from there. I adored their final album 'Seven Circles' as well and think it's equally as good as a

Hey Wardy, my opinion hasn't changed too much. I still think the production lacks punch, which for me, loses impact with some of the songs. I think the songs are great. I said from the first few listens that the albums was solid from start to finish, and having lived with it for a few weeks now, that hasn't changed. If anything, I like it a bit more, but I get frustrated when I hear songs tha

Cheers. Thanks for the follow up on it. Shame bands like this can't get a distribution deal of any description. I'll like their band on facebook and hopefully get updated on the status of a possible cd release.

Don't hear much about this band on this site. Anyone else into them? Incredible band(duet) from Norway that really is hard to define. Maybe prog/metal with more of an emphasis on harmonies and melody than heaviness. Anyway, they released their third album last year called 'Outbound' which IMO is their best so far, and an incredible listening experience. Hooks and melodies all over the place a

Agree the band get a lot of unnecessary flak from the metal/hard rock community. Their first album was very sugar sweet, but still was a solid hard rock album for the time IMO. Their follow up 'Hear' was a true gem. Still listen to it today. I must admit I was disappointed in their new album though. Was just too modern sounding and lacked any 'classic' songs IMO. Very happy they are bringing

I think the songs are actually ok. The production lets the album down as a whole, and I'm not sure why a band such as Judas Priest would have an album out in 2014 with a flat production. It really is mind boggling. I don't really buy into the whole 'we wanted a live feel' or I'm hearing the word 'raw' a lot these days. Does that mean cheap??? Pay for a decent producer guys! A guy like Andy Sneap

Agree with 'Like The World Is Ending'. That song has grown on me. I think the problem with the album for me, is there are 4 tracks that simply are filler for me. 2 on the first half of the album and 2 on the second half of the album. For me the breakdown is as follows Great songs - Turn Off The Night, Whatever We Started, Like The World Is Ending, Good Songs - Suddenly, Forgot To Rememb

I like his mellower side. Some of his best work is quite mellow. But this is a bit of a snoozefest I'm afraid. Especially the second half of the album. After he released the brilliant song 'Just Go' late last year, I was really looking forward to this album. And his last album 'Emotional Remains' was a gem! But 'Just Go' is ten times better than anything on this new one and I'm really struggling

A little disappointed with this. I prefer his sound to have at least a hint of rock elements to it, but it's completely non existent here. It's missing the big catchy choruses as well. The single 'Whatever We Started' is possibly the best song on the album. 'Turn Off The Night' is a decent track also, but too many snooze songs IMO. Have loved nearly all his output over the years, but this one I'm

Yeah, I got an advanced copy. I was like you and wasn't that over enthused from what I'd heard that had been floating around on the net. And I'm still not raving about it, but IMO, it's a solid release with 3 or 4 standout tracks. To me if it had been produced by someone like Andy Sneap who could give the album some punch, it would be much better. The production sounds a little flat to me and let

I thought Peach Fuzz was patchy. But there were 3 amazing tracks on there though worthy of being on any of their albums, and they are 'You're Not Me', 'Who's Got You Now', and 'Long Enough For Me'. Worth getting for those 3 tracks alone. Tweaked had a few gems as well, but too much filler.

On first couple of spins, it's pretty solid from start to finish. I think the production is lacking some punch, but the songs are good. Rob sounds ok. Can't quite get as high as he used to, but he proves he's still got it, especially on the awesome 'Battle Cry'. Stand out tracks for me thus far are 'Dragonaut','Halls Of Valhalla', 'Down In Flames' and 'Battle Cry'. Better than I anticipated.
