Am I the only one who really enjoyed 'Break The Silence'? I thought it was a really solid album. The title track alone is equal to anything they have done in the past(IMO).Yes, Rankin's vocals is missed, and Dante struggles in the live arena, but I felt his vocals were solid on the last album. I was very pleasantly surprised. Looking forward to this album. Really glad they are still together

I too have visited this site for many many years. I still check it one way or another every day. I really appreciate the effort that Andrew puts into this site. I always enjoy reading his reviews and find his reflections and scores similar to mine often. Since the new format has arrived I do tend to visit this forum more than the main page though, as I am still finding the layout etc a little

Many albums these days, especially mainstream, seem to be way too long. Too may songs, and way too much filler. Foo Fighters are possibly the biggest rock act in the world right now, and they release an album with only 8 songs, virtually an ep! I like the balls Dave Grohl has. It's a great concept that goes hand in hand with the doco's he's doing on each studio. For me, I love the concept, an

I agree. Really enjoying the new one. I thought their last album was solid without being amazing. However Stereo Messiah takes them to a new level in my book. Not much of a fan of the last track 'Tears Never Dry', but the rest of the album is really really good. Adds to a very solid year of releases.

I'm with adolfo. snooze fest. I loved White Lion. Liked most of Tramp's solo efforts, but this is just plain dull...

The riff isn't just familiar, it is a blatant rip off of Dio's Holy Diver! Pretty much note for note. I heard the song on the background on radio, and actually thought my ears were deceiving me as local radio would never play Dio. But it was the new Foo Fighter song. I'll assume Dave Grohl has done it on purpose(at least I hope so) as he is a very big fan of the metal genre, and even was in t

Was talking to a mate about this the other day. He was contemplating buying the new Slash album, but he said he was waiting for the inevitable deluxe version or tour edition to come out! It's a joke! To reward fans who rush out and buy the product when it's released, they should be offered the best available version then and there. Make it a limited edition or put a few extra $$$ onto it. But

I'm assuming the majority of people who buy music, movies these days have a blu ray player! Every release should be on blu ray now, not dvd! I don't get it. I understand it might cost a little more, but come on. Move with the times! I'll happily pay an extra couple of $$ for blu ray.

It's funny you mention Queen, I was thinking the same thing on this album. Definitely has some Queen elements to the music. I like the album. Don't love it just yet. I still find the debut is their best work. But I'd rate this album equal to their last. It's solid. A little too poppy for my liking at times. 'Stars' is a great song, however, albeit mostly solid, there is nothing else on the al

Wow! That sounds amazing! Is that Chris Laney on bass? I know he was in Zan Clan. Are they still together? Would love to hear a new album. I loved their debut album a number of years ago. Besides the live disc released a little after that, I have heard nothing from the band at all. This version of SM 'Nervous' sounds great!

I loved Shotgun Messiah. Maybe one of the rare ones who loved all 3 albums. They progressed unlike a lot of bands around the same era who hit the scene back in the late 80's. Skold was a big part of that progression. The debut was a solid bubble gum type of hard rock album, but you could tell the band had some talent. While the second album 'Second Coming' is still one of my favourite hard ro

Hey Daniel, there is a youtube clip of them performing the ballad 'Missing You'. Is it from that show???? An amazing and emotional song! One of the best ballads I've heard in years! Tom has got an incredibly powerful and emotion filled voice. He should get more recognition within the metal/prog metal world! They now have a fantastic back catalogue with amazing highlights from every single release

Threshold is solid. I just don't think it has the emotion and the layers that the new Evergrey has! I haven't connected with an album like this for a very long time! And I agree about H.E.A.T. I thought they had album of the year wrapped up(which is an amazing album), however, Hymns For The Broken has surpassed it with a speeding bullet!

Simply outstanding album! There has been some cracking releases so far this year, but this still stands out from them all. It has everything from huge riffs, to incredible melodies, to heartfelt ballads and the vocals by Tom is as always incredible. A cruelly under rated band IMO. I've noticed many perfect scores online in regards to reviewing this album, you can add another one here. A masterpie

Anyone checked these guys out yet? The label on the cd said Pantera meets Black Stone Cherry, and I gotta agree with them. Basically a heavier version of BSC more than a Pantera vibe, however there are lots of heavier moments. Really solid album with great instrumentation and a vocalist who has the Southern pipes to carry it off. Highly recommend to anyone into either BSC or likes their music a t

Fantastic album. Every bit as good as his last, if not better. Very solid album from start to finish. 17 songs is a bit long, however, I struggle to find a dud amongst the 17. The front half of the album is among the best Slash has produced in his whole career. Great solid hard rock album.

I agree with those who say this song is a grower. First time I heard it I wasn't that impressed, but I love the song now. Was nervous about the 70's vibe after Andrew's comments, however, this song has me back to being excited now.

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.

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.
