I'm totally behind on any recent releases but this seems one of the more original things to come out of Frontiers in a while............wasn't expecting something like this from a 74yo Graham Bonnet

Amazing what can happen when Del Veccio is nowhere near it 😁

Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

I'm sure that it is.  Now, off the top of your head, explain how it's different than any of the past 3-5 albums by the band.

Ten have always had a lot of filler.  Some songs even make you seriously cringe.  They also have a lot of pussy ballad shit, like real ballad stuff.  There is less of that on here, more straightforward guitar driven songs.  I hear what you are saying, I laughed at some of the phrases and passages that are clear rip offs of older songs, but I still enjoyed it.

Hey if Sigur Ros can do it  ;) You shouldnít mock the afflicted. These old eyes and modern keyboards donít mix  :biggrin:

And yes, itís not a heavy album - itís not meant to be. Still enjoyed it. And Chad, the only difference between this one and the last few is I enjoyed this one. Canít remember anything about it now but might just listen to it now. I have some ironing to do for the kids going back to school tomorrow. Single parent life sucks!

More like Generic, amirite?

It wasn't bad. I actually made it through the whole song, but kept imagining what it would sound like with Russell Allen on vocals. This singer wasn't bad at all.

Wait a minute, a group including Michael Sweet that doesn't have him on lead vocals?  Interesting.

New Journey sounds like absolute shite

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxW9ALoYlds


I find a lot of modern metal unlistenable but that's intentionally done like that. But this is Journey.........not sure how the hell this demo got approved for release.

Is Schon producing and arranging? That might be your answer. I know he brought in Narada Walden to produce and drum but it doesn't sound like it helped. I kind of dug the first single but yeah this just feels like a cruddy b-side.

The guitar sound is fucking weird, and Neal's lead work is horrendous.  A lot of off bends and generally sounds like the guitar is out of tune.  Cookie cutter songwriting too.

Just went back to listen to the solo and youíre right. Terrible. Not even worthy of being a placeholder on a demo. In fact it all sounds like a demo. Not good enough. Should have got Del Veccio in 😁😁

Um, can the mods check and see if Kade's account has been hacked? No way he just gave Del Veccio a compliment.

Man, Sweet can still just rip it! For a dude in his late 50's that's crazy. Enjoyed the song, it was a fun listen for the most part.

I just finished up the JSS album, Complicated.  Very nice.  He's still got a silky smooth voice.

Stumbled on this yesterday, and it was quite enjoyable (especially the chorus) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHM-djDtT9A

Softcock for sure - Tim will hate it.  Kade maybe too (but ya never know)

Damn Chad, I think that's too soft even for this thread.  :lol

Sounds like American Country to me.

As for JSS, whatever he did after Damage Control turned me off.  I don't know, the way I am at the moment, I'm just leaning towards heavier stuff, but maybe I'll sample it.
