hey Guillaume - reg Audrey Horne

Postby introclaus » Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:28 am

I bought their latest album after reading your list the other day and it's been on non-stop play since then. There is definitely some real Thin Lizzy worship going on in here :)

I read that they changed their style up somewhat after the first 3 albums, and that they were more KISS/party-rock before then?

Are any of the other albums worth getting, or is the last one the only one I should care about?

Cool! Get Youngblood (2013) and Pure Heavy (2014), both in the same style as the last one and even better overall for me! The ones before 2013 were a bit more "alternative rock" in style, not really Kiss-like.

Great video and great song for me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2YYCjR2dgsc

Another nice song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBNxQWfx8gw

And another one! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXax8uBLluo

Gotta find time to comment on your top list....

Le Fol for me is there best..every song is a winner.......Heard about them when they were on one of those Nuclear Blast dvds that usally have more thrash/black and deth metal.....I have Young Blood on vinyl and its decent but I don't go to it as much as Lefol

Very different in style compared to the last 3 albums. Not bad at all, but I prefer the current sound, more classic rock, with Thin Lizzy influences.

Played both Pure Heavy and Youngblood this morning. Both rule but Pure Heavy is now my fave!

I've spent a good time playing several of the albums now, and I feel like I've got a good feel of their catalogue now.

There seem to be 3 distinct styles over their career:

A: first two albums ... somewhat alternative style that just doesn't appeal to me at all (kind of like Soundgarden meets Hellacopters?)
B: the self titled third album ... dark, moody, laid back, and somewhat proggy actually - I really like this!
C: the last 3 albums ... classic hard rock, lots of Thin Lizzy worship.

Of the latest category, I feel like the ideas started to come through nicely on "Youngblood", but on "True Heavy" they became too polished and didn't work very well - it feels almost as if Eclipse wrote a Thin Lizzy tribute album and that's pretty much a "no balls" effort. I can totally see why Guillaume likes it, as it's more of a hard rock album than a classic rock album, but I want my Thin Lizzy style hard rock to smell of sweat and beer ... which is why I think that the new album is perfect!!

So, besides the new one, I ended up only buying the self titled album, but might pull the trigger on "Youngblood" at some point in time ...

Nice to have directed you towards a new band to enjoy. Personnally, I don't see a big difference between the last 3 albums. All 3 are very good. I agree about your definition of the first 3. On the s/t, the track Sail Away is awesome and my fave.
