It sounds like they have upped their game considerably on this album, and that's no mean feat as their first two were good too. Looking forward to picking this one up.

I don't think I have an axe to grind in this battle, but have a couple of thoughts to add: -It is sad that in this particular music scene we all love so much, it has devolved into recriminations and name calling. I'm sure both sides have plenty of "dirt" on the other they can pull out. To what end ? The scene is fractured enough as it is. -It seems a compromise is in order in this dis

It sounds like hagiography to me. If a musician writes a book, I suppose he can write anything he likes, but that doesn't mean it's "fair and balanced" as they say!

Yeah, I continue to struggle with the production/mastering of XIV. It has a powerful sound and dynamic presence, but sounds so blaring and compressed at certain times. "Running Out of Time" especially stands out for that--unfortunate, as that is my favorite song on the album..

Wow, there is something discombobulating about hearing this awesome rocking track and then seeing these Japanese schoolgirls playing the instruments. Teaches me not to prejudge apparently! Good stuff.

Wow, not even a competition for me. Eye of the Tiger wins by a wide margin for me. I always thought of Burning Heart as derivative and riding the coattails of Eye of the Tiger.

Still one of those who doesn't think XIV is a classic, but huge props to Carlock on this one. Huge, perfect drumming!

Agree with Julio and Wykked. A strong release, I would put it slightly above "Falling in Between" and "Tambu" but by no means a classic. "Isolation," "Seventh One," "IV," and probably even Farenheit are better to me. While I truly enjoy the first three albums, I think they sound so dated to me, it's hard to rank them as highly.

Consider this thread a shout-out to Hugo! Get in touch with Andrew and get a new album cranked out--your fan club is getting restless :)

Any love out there for "Running Out of Time"? I think that is the coolest rocker they've done for a long time. Awesome chorus harmonies!

Really like some Zaffiro's music. Major drawback is the production is painfully thin. Some of his music reminds me of early Dokken. Check this one out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2TOF0uTdkE

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

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..
