That's 3 for 3. All the preview tracks have been superb. I don't buy many albums these days but this is a must & a first Mecca in my collection.

Joe, Daft question but I have to ask... Will the album be available on iTunes? The track "Gone" is absolutely fantastic & alongside "Let it go", those 2 previewed songs have me wanting to get this album. Pete

Fully agree with "Me & My Wine"...awful track on an otherwise Stellar release.

lol! See...I love the song Rocket (or I did). When I discovered (much later) that the great, hook filled wall of indecipherable harmony vocals in the chorus actually said "Satellite of Love"...it did put me off a little.

"Slang" from Def Leppards SLANG Album. Dreadful song from a rather experimental and hugely enjoyable album.

There are always exceptions to the rules my friend & I also don't believe Bon Jovi suck either but we all gotta get older. My only opinion on that is the hunger needed to drive a band or artist forwards...& of course the fans allowing for growth or maturity. Most fans don't want bands to change their "legacy" sound...others don't want them rehashing old staples & themes a

See, I'm a bit of a lyrical spaz to be honest but I do agree, some melodies & vocal phrasing are similar. But again, I'm not sure it's a case of blatant plagiarism or simple songwriting with more "obvious" & typical lines. Simplicity is often key to immediacy whereas those songs/vocals with far more melody & uniqueness often take longer to appreciate yet have the far more la

There's only really so many Chord progressions on the scale & I'm pretty sure a lot of these more familiar ones are purely coincidental & merely songwriting 101. A lot of music nowadays has that tried & tested formula & familiarity...rarely anything is "original". It's often imho why bands that surfaced in the first 30 years beyond the 60s are heralded as pioneers

I like that too... Although Danny has a superior tone, he sounds like he's channeling EXTREMES Gary Cherone there...& I really like that! Great production also.

I'm pretty much in tune with you on this but I will say, Battle of my own is one of my faves on the disc. When it kicks in full band it's absolutely wonderful. Heavy, melodic, epic & truly something else (Elliot bust a nut on the vocals and has rarely sounded better in the past 20 years). Love the great tunes However much like yourself and have a SoSo about the others. Invincible is mis

Absolutely. I'm digging Battle of my own too...As Andrew said, it's very Zeppelinesque & Coverdale/Page but when it opens up, its really quite something. Those tracks "Let's Go, Dangerous, All Time High and Wings along with We Belong" are instant winners but there's a lot more I'm really digging. Just a couple of tracks I'm So So about. On a 14 Track album I'd say that's a huge s

I'm really digging it myself after 1 spin through. There's a couple of fluff tracks that I've come to expect over the years since Euphoria but there's a lot I absolutely love. Let's go I'm aware has divided most people but I think it's a gem. Hooky, simple & has enough pop sus to be a commercial winner. Dangerous & All time high I've lived with for some time now. Love 'em both.

It's quite self explanatory... You feel Slang the album is overrated yet Slang the song is the best thing on it... Many feel the album is a hugely underrated gem however in spite of its title track which is possibly the weakest song on the album. Does that make any more sense?

DCPete
Yeah, I'm on board too having heard those 3 tracks. The latter 2 especially, "All time high" being my favourite of the bunch & quite possibly over everything they've released since 'X.

Slang is the standout "worst track" on an otherwise great album. It's rated highly because of it's diversity but Slang (the song) is the only real clunker. That's possibly why you don't understand the praise it often gets. I do love Adrenalize however.

Thanks Richard for the feedback. We are really pleased with the new songs, both got an airing at HRH AOR 2 & a new album is in the works (hopefully with a release later this year). For the curious, the 2 new tracks are available at the following places for download https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/a-love-affair-single/id840250541 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Love-Affair-Dante-Fox/dp/B0

ESTWB at the End of Lock Up is Jimi doing the Classic Survivor track & I think it was a single around 1989/90. The film also features "Vehicle" from Jim Peterik's Ides of March. Whilst I think most of the soundtracks to his 80's films were a product of their time, most soundtracks feature some great artists & Naturally, Survivor/Peterik/Jamison feature in 3 of his movies (Roc

I've battled with Hodgkin's twice in my life (10 years apart) & having been there wish him the very best. The Cure rate is a positive sign, the treatment however is gruelling both on the body & mind. His positivity will be what pulls him through & a sheer dose of good fortune.

Tommy...Chord progressions have been exhausted over the test of time granted....but does this mean all new songwriting efforts should steer well clear of what's considered "sellable" or indeed "commercial" in favour of artistic liscence & banging out a set of awkward, disjointed efforts in the name of originality? Good songs WILL shine through but because we/you arrived

Jeff's an absolutely wonderful singer but seriously not a good fit for the band. It depends on what they're after but other than his incredible vocals, he just wouldn't be right in both age & image methinks. I could however be wrong.

It was and is a struggle. I barely like Hip today...merely for the superb drum fill at the intro. Bar that...there ain't much else to like. A shame indeed and a band really confused as to where to go following the grunge explosion.

Slang is the most hideous track on an otherwise stellar album of great songs. One of my faves being the Vivian penned Work it out.
