Well, my dear friends.

I've had the privilege of getting a copy of the CD from my sweet Peter today and it kikks ass! I love it!

It's heavy and it's pure rock-n-fukkin-roll!

1. In the Raw
2. Like a Sin
3. Falling Rain
4. I Don't Care (feat. Mick Mars)
5. Die Another Day
6. Alone (feat. Mick Mars)
7. Thrill Me
8. Overnight
9. XTC Overdrive
10. Bound to Be Enslaved
11. The Buried Song

I'm not gonna say something intelligent about every song haha cuz that's not something I'm good at but I'll say this much, it's a great album and I'm so proud of our boys!

Falling Rain is wonderful, just wonderful, I've always loved that song and the finished result is so good.

I Don't Care is my personal favourite and the fact that Mick Mars is on it is awesome cuz I love Mick! :lol:

"I'm telling the truth
So listen to me
Messin' with me is to piss in the wind"

Die Another Day has a lovely intro and outro (or whatever it's called hehe). And I love this song cuz it's the "old" I Can Sense a Lie.

Alone is a great song. A bit slower than the rest.

Bound to Be Enslaved is another favourite and The Buried Song is also great. They're both very catchy.

So make sure ya'll fukkin get the CD OK!!

Tell everyone you know to buy it as well and support the guys cuz they've done a great job!

I'm proud of them that's for sure. And Peter, thanks for everything yeah. I love you darling!

Shouldn't have read this preview....everyday it's getting harder n harder to wait for the mailman, knowing this. :lol:
Can't wait to hear the studio version of Falling Rain...and all the songs featured in the podcasts as well...that was hard sometimes to get a clue from the songs, hearing some chords, can't wait to hear the final versions of all the work in sundsvall!

Can't wait to hear the studio version of Falling Rain...


Hehe, couldnt agree more 8-) If its one thing I'd sell my soul for right now, it would be to hear the final version of "Falling Rain". According to me the FR demo (without the chorus) is one of the best segments EVER coming from our beloved Dïetboys (och det säger inte lite).

It kikks shit live too *goosebumps*

Well we'll just have to wait a lil longer... Im gonna watch the RIS dvd tonight to torture my needings just a little more.

Keep on rockin in the free world!!!

my review after a few listens.

positive parts.
good solos and playing from the band, some good lyrics.
falling rain, and in the raw.

negative.

riffs dont really flow on alot of the tracks, its very more now metal where things stop and start alot.
Too much of an alternative feel for my liking.
Theres not many of the big backing vocals now, they are effects covered things....
kinda reminds me of gemini 5 n lordi. which i aint keen on personally.
they didnt need the mick mars tracks, there own songs are better.


thats how i feel right now, ill listen to it many times this week, so ill edit it if i have any change in oppinion.

:lol: Exactly what I thought



Anyway after the first spin...naah. I still need to listen to it more. It seems so forced and un-natural. But yea I hated In the raw first, now i love it so lets see.

Listening to the album.

It's a completely different sound. Not as catchy overall as Rest In Sleaze, but it sure has its moments. "Falling Rain", "Overnight" and especially (my personal favorite) "Bound To Be Enslaved" have really catchy choruses. The last mentioned also contains a somehwhat different vocal-style from Olli that reminds me a little of Cinderella and Ratt. Sounds cool.

I also get some kind of Guns'n'Roses punk'ish (on the verge of almost becoming a bit Backyard Babies punk'ish) vibe from the tracks "I don't Care", "The Buried Song" and the chorus of "Thrill Me".

Not a bad album at all; just don't expect something that sounds like Rest In Sleaze, because it simply doesn't. It sounds more modern, and alot of the 80's feeling feels abscent, IMO. But keep in mind it's an album that grows on you.
