Who sang lead on the new song? We've been playing it on our radio station, but it doesn't sounds like either Jack or Kelly....?

You're Going to Hear From Me is mainly song by Jack. Kelly throws in some backing vocals. Most of the songs off the new cd were song by Kelly which was fine with me as jack sang most off the Neverland and Seven cds. I liked the new cd but my enjoyment off it was halted when I heard the Soap Opera surround Jeff Watson.

Are you sure Night Ranger only played one new song? I heard they played 5.

Myself I have had a hard time getting myself to see Night Ranger with Brad, Kelly, Jack and two subs. I might however see them in St Clair Michigan later this summer. There are two somewhat local shows this summer. The other being in Windsor. I decided to see a reunited Honeymoon Suite and April Wine (for the first time) instead. They play the night before at the same venue.

It's funny how opinions differ. For me, the largest drawback on the new CD is Kelly's vocals. I just do not like the way he sounds on this. I would much prefer more of Jacks vocals.

This is definitely a CD that I can hear will sound better LIVE. It's going to sound more like traditional Night Ranger in concert. Their "modern" sound is fine on the CD, but it can be a little difficult to wrap yourself around...but take those same songs and play them more traditionally and I think you have got a winner!!

great quote, ive only listened to the pieces from the web, really dont like the production, or the process of the vocals
but your right, live hear it sounded like a true night ranger song, no tuned down guitars, no echoey processed vocals
just a good kick ass type song, maybe thell go back to a classic sound/production on the next one.
the did only play one new song.

It is a good song. Me personally I think this newest cd was better than their last two. Really Neverland nor Seven sounded like classic Night Ranger either. I felt Neverland had three good tracks (NY Time, FAOA, and Neverland). I felt Seven had no standout tracks and was just ok...think they could've spent more time on the melodies. The new cd although more modern was strong from beginning to end with no weak tracks in my opinion.

I adore Kelly, but I'm not digging the new album much. To me, Kelly's "I'm Alive" sounds more like Night Ranger than the new NR does. Haven't seen them in a few years now and I miss it.

BTW, what was the Soap Opera surrounding Jeff? I know that they didn't part in the best of terms, but never learned what the problems were.

Funny... My friends and I joked about the two albums and what Kelly's thought process might have been at the time, when choosing which songs were to be used for which project:

"Hmm, mine... Nah, Night Ranger... Oooo, mine!.... Uh, Night Ranger... Definitely, mine..." :lol:

I think the song writing is so much better on the Night Ranger cd than the Kelly cd. The songs are more catching. Sure the song is a little different but Kelly's song lack the Night Ranger feel too...for example the guitar sound....has guitar but not Night Ranger Guiter. There are also many weak songs on Kelly's. Do I need to say...I like the new Night Ranger cd better.

I have every record anyone in the band has ever been associated with.

The new Alliance (Fitz) CD is outstanding.

I just never "got" Hole in the Sun.

Kelly's "I'm Alive" is one of the best songs ever recorded by anyone, anywhere. It is in constant rotation on my iPod. I thought Kelly's record was MUCH better than the Sun. If NR releases another record they need to record a damned NIGHT RANGER record and not post-grunge crap.

August 31, 2008 Pittsburgh, PA Kickoff Ribfest

Postby lfhlaw » Sun Aug 31, 2008 4:21 pm

I just saw them live at the Pittsburgh Ribfest. I saw them one time before in pittsburgh at ribfest, i don't recall but probably 5-6 years ago (all original memberS)
They played about 1hr and 40 minutes and played all the hits as usual. Reb Beach showed up at the end of the night to jam with the band for a bit.

Trying to remember set list, as I couldn't procure one. Not in any particular order, but i'll try to come close.

This Boy needs to Rock
Sing me Away
Rumours in the Air
Eddie's Comin' out Tonight
Coming of Age
The Secret of My Success

[acoustic set]
Goodbye
High Enough
Joel/Brad acoustic playing.

Sentimental Street[piano into electric]
Four in the Morning
You're Gonna Hear it from me
When You Close your Eyes
Don't Tell me you love me(with Reb Beach - 3 guitars!!!! who's playing what? lol )
Highway to Hell(with Reb Beach - seemed like they had the volume down on his guitar for some reason cause i couldn't hear his solo in the song)
Sister Christian
(You can Still) Rock in America

They did play 'You're gonna hear it from me' from the new album which i was happy about. With 3 new albums over the past several years you'd expect them to play something from them!
You're Gonna Hear it from me sounded Great Live and actually a little better, louder.

I was surprised to hear 'The Secret of my Success' cause I don't recall hearing it much live so this was a bonus for me.

The dueling guitar work was great, and Joel fit right in. Impressed me.
The band seemed to have alot of fun for the night, However, they did not come out after the show...though i left after about 25 minutes. The prior visit when i saw them, they did come out and shake hands/talk to people.

There were some people with backstage passes....so perhaps the band had to stay with those people. Reb Beach did come out though and shake hands. He's from pittsburgh so that's why he happened to be there.

I'm hoping if....they make another album and it has to be without JW, that they keep this kid around to play on the next album, but we'll see.
