The new video is hilarious. Eclipse always seems so intense and almost humorless, so good to see a different side of the band.

I'd rate "Agent Provocateur" slightly higher -- just love "Tooth and Nail," "That Was Yesterday" and a few of the other cuts. Funny how that album contains their biggest hit ever, but it seems out of place somehow.

I see them listed at the Minnesota State Fair August 27--not far at all for me to drive, so I may go see them.. Tickets are listed at $67.

Slightly underwhelmed with "Orphan" as the lead single, though it sounds like it's a better song in the whole scope of the album. I just think of many of their previous lead singles: "Hold the Line," "Rosanna," "Pamela," "Stranger in Town," "I Will Remember," and others, and this one doesn't nearly reach those heights. That sai

My first thought was that Kimball might have had a few extra drinks at the pub right before this... it's not just bad vocals, it's painfully awkward behavior and dialogue too.

Jumping in, I too feel slightly disappointed in "Thirteen." Some good songs and better energy than "Hope," but there's a letdown somewhere in there for me. Not anything new or inspired. Songs like "Garden of Eden," "Midnight Hours," "Troubled Times," and a couple others stand respectably alongside their better songs. But there is nothing o

Surprisingly good but I just can't take his rock-out facial stylings seriously!

Unfortunately I too agree... but it's gotta be exasperating for Andrew to hear this kind of thing considering the amount of time and expense devoted to this redesign. I guess rather than clamoring for a return to the "old" (which will never happen), a more productive question might be, "what adjustments, tweaks, and improvements can be made to the current site to make it bette

I think constructive criticism is fair game and Andrew has responded to a lot of critiques in the past several weeks (and addressed them positively). It's a different matter when a patron has bellied up to the bar for years on end, and received countless drinks on the house, but then gets bitter about the quality of the free beer--"hey, these mugs used to be 12 oz and now they're 10--what g

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFlWfBfAfkM&feature=youtu.be Sounds all right, like a mix of Overload and Human Nature. The long layoff seemed to bring their energy back, but I wouldn't say the songs are classic based on the samples..

Not familiar with that song title, but I'm by no means an authority on The Brave's discography.

Here's a sample: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTFutAKoWqU Fun to hear John Elefante's soaring harmonies on the pre-chorus & chorus.

Can't really add much to what Brent said. Battle Cries is a fantastic release very much in the vein of classic Def Leppard and Bon Jovi. The new samples don't live up to that--in fact, it sounds like a completely different band and the female vocals don't do a bit for me.

The debut is tops for me. During their heydays in the mid-80's, I ranked Heartbeat City as its equal, but as the original poster said, it is definitely a product of its time and has grown cliche (hence the reason I now prefer the tracks that didn't get airplay). As for Candy-O, it is very good, but it lives mostly off the momentum of the debut in my opinion. "It's All I Can Do," &q

Fantastic debut album.. Agree it is in the Journey/Storm vein, and matches up nicely with a few updated musical touches.

Love this one too... it's kind of their "under the radar" release, but some really great tracks. Almost no commercial success, though, so IV was do or die...

Good read, but he lost me a bit with "Tell the Truth" is equal to "Revolver." Ummm... Reminds me of Dan Quayle comparing himself to Kennedy in the VP debates. Lloyd Bentsen: "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy.."

I find nothing wrong with the production, but the Leppard stylings are just a bit much for me. Almost every song, I find myself saying, "ahh, there's Pour Some Sugar On Me" or "There's God of War" but just not quite as good. Obviously, I know the intent is to mimic Def Leppard, but they are clearly good songwriters and musicians in their own right and I, for one, would e

Great news! Hopefully the downtime recharged their creative batteries a bit. I really enjoyed the new songs on the Mood Swings rerecording.

Duncan's "revelation from god"-tongue in check sarcasm? or serious? The answer to that would dictate my response...

Agree with the above sentiments. This was the one track that stuck out for me in the samples and, sure enough, the song is awesome. I am still looking forward to hearing a monster ballad in the Night Ranger tradition--hoping this album has at least one of those!
