    Has anyone listened yet?

    One of my absolute favorite bands in the 80's so I played the record twice while I was brewing today and decided I'm taking it upstairs in a few for another listen. Great record. Great band. Great guitarists.

    I have it. Nice songs but the production seems only average.

    Got it when it came out last summer. Its got some really good stuff maybe a few too many mellow tunes. Its hard to listen to Jeff Kieths voice these days as its shot

    i like it a lot, but can only handle Jeff's voice a few songs at a time. Shame it gets no airplay...

    OK. FIRST BIG LISTEN. If you can't get past Jeff skip to track 2 and pus volume 2x. Seriously. Tone for days. Really smart vocal and guitar harmonies. Damn.......didn't think they had an album like this left. Off to find the vinyl.

    I love Frank Hannon's playing, but I also have a hard time with Keith's voice these days. It's freaking bizarre.

    Jeff sounds like Cartmann, with laryngitis.

    Yeah. Hannon is ripping on most of this album. Ballsy.

    They're touring with Def Leppard and Styx this summer. Watch for an official announcement in mid February.

    Getting back to the topic at hand, I thought the album was very good. Frank Hannon has always been severely underrated.

    That was pretty much the case when I saw them last summer in support of the lastest album , that band was great but the Cartman vocals were rough, the drunks in the crowd didn't seem to mind . Vocal issues aside Jeff put on a great performance
