Just scoped it. Damn-- great melodic Scorps tune!! I love it--short n' sweet. These guys just know their way around writing great tunes! So glad they decided NOT to retire- I was bummed about that and hoped they'd at least keep recording. And here we go!! ... Psyched. T PS: when's the release date again?

The song titles themselves sound cheese worthy. But then,the band has chartered that terrain over the years. They do pretty well with Engish but there are always the occasional snafus in writing/titles that come off a bit naff. Still dig the band a ton despite this and more power to 'em for being able to go beyond it in their appeal. T

Just listened to most all of it on y-tube. Thanks for the nod,Scott! This is pretty darn instantly likeable material. Some fab guitar,hookefest choruses and the singer is quite likeable. he reminds me of a warmer toned James Young for some reason. THey're somewhere between Scorps/Dokken with touches of Circus Maximus and that ilk. Just enough variation in the writing to keep them intersting w/o o

Not sure what your point is,ydde. Bands like Cream,Led Zeppelin,Sabbath,etc were ALL heavily influenced by the American black blues artists. But yeah-Berry was in inovator unto himself way back when. So yeah..I'm aware of the history,bud. T

Love Hold Your Fire. I used to have a cool t-shirt of that one that I found in a thrift shop,of all places. Also really dig power Windows alot. I saw that tour and the one for Grace Under Pressure (my first Rush concert). I love that era - more than the newer material. It has a bit more melody going on per song. T

They're obviously for those who have an afinity towards the real classic rock bands of old. THe purists (no matter what age) that can really dig the vibe from way back then. As mentioned....I come by it honestly. But it's also interesting to note that the band has lots of younger fans as well. T

The one that direly needs remastering is Presto. that cd was so terribly thin in the mix. I'm sure that it DOES have a remaster-don't all their cds/albums have remasters? Can't spend the doe on all these updated versions tho. :-( T

Well.. I lived through the late 60's/early 70's rock scene (my high school days),so I come by being a Rival Sons fan honestly. If you ever were a true zep fan,there just ain't no way not to dig what RS are representing. T

Funny how both dP and Sabbath started out as very heavy blues influenced bands. But then,most early/vintage heavy bands did. It's where rock came from,after all. T

Agreed at leat about Blues Pills. Okay stuff but Rival Sons are the top of the heap for me. No equals...yet. T

How can you possibly miss the heavy influences of those 3 bands,Scott? We must be listening to two different bands then. stumped. T

They have a wide spectrum of ages that make up their fanbase. Because they have the Zep vibe,their IS a timeless element there. I'll say this-- more younger fans than alot of the other classic 80's style acts about. Why? As mentioned--this type of rock has a more timeless appeal. Don't shoot the messenger.. ;-) T

Def late 60's/early 79's vibe. Zep/Doors/Anumals etc. are key influences. You dig that or don't-pretty simple really. T

LOL Just got off work guys. Don't get to the pc til I get home. This is an OUTRAGE against humanity!! You work all day then come home to THIS?? Seriously-- they are nOT a band that would be for every melrock fan. Is their one of those? Some here don't even dig Harem Scarem (I don't like a few cds by them). Heaven forbid! T

No Green Day albums sound the same? Every effin' song they do sounds the same to me. They're on par with AC/DC for similarity between albums. just that the later has a bit more inventiveness going on than a band minus guitar solos. *yawn*. T

There was alot of music about back when CCR was in their heyday. THey weren't regarded as hard rock or 'heavy' which was a term in it's infancy then. But they certainly weren't 'pop' compared to what WAS pop at the time. Popular--YES. 'Pop'--no. T

I get that. Not sure I'd RAVE about it to anyone tho. It's a solid /short cd of them being..THEM. pretty good effort if not great. Some cool tunes and you know...I don't pay a ton of attention to their lyrics as they're usually banal anyway. at some point I usually give them a bit more mind but as said--nothing shattering. T

I herd all the samples and what I heard from y-tube just didn't click for me. In fact-- I MAY even have gotten a copy of it from a music bud who dug it. Just didn't impress me much. And I think it weird how RW mimics Lynott,even tho it's the intention of course. An homage sort of thingy to the old band,but again-song per song..meh. I'll give the newbie a shot.. T

Better than anything from the debut,methinks. But still not grabbing me more than the 'Lizzy cover band' approach. I'll scope the new one in full and go from there... T

I'll scope 'em,Jim. Thanks, T PS: btw-- checked Dirty Diamonds out and found some of it pretty naff. Cringeworthy on some songs. I dug the first 3 tracks,then...meh.

The band has operated on the same level/standard for years now. To expect anything different from them would be folly. You either dig them (and plenty do) or not. I get that some don't dig the same style repeatedly,but why expect different and come on complaining about that? Silliness.. T

Isn't the official title of the debut: Ozzy Osbourne- 'Blizzard Of Oz'? At least that's what I recall. If so,then despite whether the actual band went under that moniker on tour or otherwise, it was still officially Ozzy as a solo artist. Radio stations hardly que(d) up Crazy Train saying..next up we have something by Blizzard Of Oz..T

I have vinyl of the early albums (of course). Never even got them on cd (my bad I guess?). Not that I don't dig them,just never picked everything up on cd that I have lps of. I did hear of the replacement debacle tho--NOT cool! sharon may consider herself some kind of shrewd business manager,but it comes off as being a real beyotch (as someone else pointed out). other than that tho-- I actually d

Not sure but has it ever been stated that they didn't get on well as a band? Seems odd how he doesn't want to acknowledge their efforts other than possibly the greed of potential publishing rights/monies divied up. Which is bad enough of course,given their contributions to those records. T
