A guy like Phil Mogg brings out the melody, the songwriter. On his own, he writes instrumentals that these guys try and sing too. He's never been better than when working with Sir Phil Of Mogg.

Agree..sounds like them, classic rock, just beefier sound than previous albums that sounded a bit lacking in the sonics (to me anyway).

Good observation. Definitely not going full throttle with the vocal gymnastics all the time. Sounds much better for it. Less theatrical as well.

Much better sounding. The guitars seemed thin on the previous albums. This sounds better produced and mixed. Overall much “bigger” sound. The two “new” guitarists I feel suit the band better. More identity and a bit more “flash” without being a guitar wank fest. Both are tasty players (check some of there individual FB page noodle vids...nice playing) Lyrically, it’s not setting

I don’t think it’s a better or worse than much of the recent JORN stuff. Typically cliche DIO/PRIEST-ish. It’s one track. It’s ok. On my iPhone speaker the vocals sounded a bit high up and reverb drenched, but it’s probably my phone. As someone else said, writing it off.

Money Shot...or Demon Fire I like them all. Only No Mans Land falls a little short for me. Best record they’ve made since 83. Production is right. The feel is right. Good consistent songs with some new quirks that spike your ear. I expected a half and half album I’d skip through. First time in a while I’ve enjoyed playing an entire new DC album straight throug.

Good song and sonically much better than the last one, in terms of the drums sounds. Promising. Look forward the album

I’ve had the CD a couple of days and just let it play in the background. It’s got energy, it’s fun and varied in tempos. It’s got a feel good vibe about it. A few little new twists in the songs which is nice. But it’s still AC/DC. Only one song, No Mans Land misses the mark for me. The rest are good. Some excellent. Arguably the most consistent album since 82-83. Realise and Sho

Yeah..the drum recording/mix lacks dynamics and they tend to sound samey.

I look forward to more from WET. I really liked the debut and Earthrage. If there’s one thing to my ears that needs a change, it’s the drums. Perhaps hard to articulate here, but just a bigger separation / definition between the snare, toms and bass drum. Maybe it’s the mixes, but it just sometimes seem the drums are samey and bit buried. IDK...???? Good to know there’s new music on the

AGREE..we just lost EVH, we’ve lost so so many of late. People should be bloody happy bands like DC can still put out quality music. Soon, all these bands will be a memory!! Like you, first time I heard it..yeah, it was familiar. Yeah..its typical DC. GOOD! That’s what I want from DC. My toe tapped and I smiled as well, within a few bars of it playing.

Exactly.. Whist some of their mid-late 80s albums were quite right (mainly due to production and mix). But overall, they always deliver a decent album, that always perhaps unfairly gets a hard time as it’s not BIB vol:2. I though Black Ice was a gold return to form if 2 or 3 tracks too many. Rock Or Bust seeks to have suffered as it was a much snappier and shorter playing record, but...it

Sounds like AC/DC...which is what DC fans wants right? Good punchy sound and track sounds solid. As a short teaser, sounds good to me. https://youtu.be/iKOlC8hNMZA

Pearl Of Euphoria. Brilliant track and love the alternate mix, slight difference on the SLANG Deluxe CD.

TALK is possibly the best of the 3 original RABIN era records. Less poppy and marries old YES and the then modern YES perfectly. The production is incredible.

He was great drummer and very underrated. He fought this hard. Shame. Another loss of one of the vets. I QR take a lot of flack, but the first 3 albums are actually pretty good. RIP Frankie.

I don’t mind it. I’ve still for the original and now this for a different spin on it. Oni’s vocal could’ve sounded a bit more inspired.

He’s said this album is the “book end” to how it all started. So I guess, if he’s serious, this is his way of closing the chapter. There was to have been a tour as you probably know, but I think they’ve all decided it’s done as COVID isn’t going anywhere for a longtime.

He has already suggested that LYNCH MOB is done. He said on a Instagram post, this was the end of LM and the end of an era. New chapter coming up and Oni has already decided he’s not doing the gigs that were intended and rescheduled. So perhaps COVID, BLM and Oni leaving (yet again) etc has brought about this decision. No idea if he intends to do one last tour with a new singer, but he said L

Listened to it loud via the iTunes file, and it’s way better than that YT post. Great production again. It’s a Hendrix-ish bluesy funky spin on the song. I don’t mind it.

Viv is a more “vulnerable” person to the virus, so no doubt they’ve got Steve on standby in case Viv has to bail out if he fell ill.

The US MIX of UFO’s Misdemeanor is quite good. They took out some of the keys and push the guitars a little more in places. It’s still bathed in reverb, but it’s not bad. Some of the drums sound a little less electric in places.

From the SCOTT era - Down Payment Blues. From the Johnson - Guns For Hire Both FLICK and FLY has some great songs marred by bad mixes. PLEASE remix them.

Yeah, Paul was more into the jam, he loved to just play and see where it went. We had a jam once in his kitchen, and when I stopped he said “never stop, just find the note in your head and use it...take it somewhere. Just flow”. Schenker is a brilliant accurate machine of a player. He’ll play the same notes every night with pin point accuracy. Paul was more of a “free form” player. But

This is sadly true folks. Paul is family. Terrible news. He is again with the love of his life Debbie. We’ll all miss you Paul. Such an energetic and funny man. Brilliant musician and played professionally since his teens! I’ll never forget some of the times and nights out in Cardiff, London and your home in Florida. Toodle Pip mate.

The song is ok, but I had to stop listening after a minute or so. The vocals have no restraint. I was worn out before the song was half way through. Pity the producer didn’t ask the singer to use some dynamics in his delivery.

It’s a classic example of an embellished old demo. They’ve probably kept the original parts that suited a decent sonic release for these times, and put new tracks on / in place of those that weren’t quite there. Remixed and mastered it. Not sure why some want to tear it down straight off fo the bat. I’m a fan, I’m certainly not expecting any of it to match anything post BTC. It would
