Hey well im sure people are gonna be hearing the album soon or have heard it so i figured id post this so we can chat about it!

So far my thoughts after two plays are. I love it all minus Armageddon. The songs absolutely rock and Simons voice is fucking amazing.

i also think they should left the B-sides on the album too XD

N maybe had So Alive as the opener, removed Armageddon n replaced it with Sick Mind

Top track for me...definately Native Nature. I mean, you get filthy riffs, cowbell, sleaze....and..... "HUH!" and probably the best guitar solo on the album.

I think this is a damn good album....do i think its topped R.I.S though? No....Rest in Sleaze was a bit grittier which gives it the edge for me. Generation Wild is very polished. I guess it depends on your preferences with production though.

Strange that you don't like Armageddon, I think it's one of the strongest songs, but fair enough!

I like every single track on the album - I couldn't name a favourite but my least favourite is probably Rebel. Still a great song though!

There's one part in Chemical, it sounds really poppy, almost dance music. I quite like it though, makes me want to sing along.

I think the album definitely has a good mix of hard rockers (Native Nature) more poppy numbers (Chemical) and ballads (Save Her, Beautiful Pain).

And I think it tops RIS. For me anyhow. RIS has a couple songs that I don't really like, I like every song on GW. And it seems to be going back to their 80s roots a bit more than RIS did. And I'm usually a fan of more polished production, although RamPac and Lindell seem to have preserved the grit under the polish ;) In any case, they're both awesome albums. Generation Wild without question beats any other album I've heard since RIS came out.

While they may sound alot like AC/DC. Airbournes albums are strong contenders for my favorite modern music along with CRASHDIET. different styles, but both a form of rock....and both bands put out very strong material!

i only want to say i love Armageddon but i wonder why it drags out at the end so much, and i want to say pretty much every track could be a single, must of been hard picking what one first :lol:

Relax, I have already prebought the album. I have the other two as well. There's nothing wrong with listening to an album before buying it.

You have spotify if you want to listen to the album before buying it. And shit, they even released samples from every track! Isn't that enough? :evil:

LOL. Rebel is the best song on the album. It blows every other song away. But ok.

This album is better than Rest In Sleaze. I'm very impressed.

"Rebel" (this kicks so much ass it's hard to explain, you gotta hear it), "Chemical" and "Bound To Fall" stand out extra much to me. Excellent tracks.

"Beautiful Pain" is kinda boring, and it borrows way too much from the "Use Your Illusion" albums. And the Auto-Tune destroys the whole song. RamPac should really learn how to use Auto-Tune, because this sounds very amateurish. Definately my least favorite song, along with "So Alive". Both songs have weak choruses too.

But the rest rocks. Very good album overall.

I think this album is just as gritty production-wise as RIS, if not more even. Turn up the volume and listen to your favorite song "Native Nature" and see if you change your mind.

Yes, I am a typical metalhead. I can still, however, appreciate a ballad - if it's good. "Beautiful Pain" isn't. It's boring, and the chorus isn't interesting. "Save Her" is alot better.

As for "ruining it" - just don't read the thread. Easy.

How can you quote the chorus from "Chemical" if you haven't heard it yet? It's "...yeah one last fix to keep the blues at bay...", by the way. ;)
