I always loved these guys. Real masters of melodic hard'n'heavy, they didn't lost their ability to write catchy songs. Very formidable and "right-in-your-face" rocker. Cool. 9/10.

A classic by The Kinks. It's interesting to compare the lyrics to this one written about a boy living under the reign of Queen Victoria to the lyrics in Living On A Thin Line written in 1984. Both are about England, but each portrays a different view on fighting for their country. Davies seems to suggest that Englishmen once had a reason to fight for their country, while in recent times, that desire has withered away due to the changes they've experienced. My take on it anyway. 8.5/10

Meh. I guess I wouldn't mind it playing in a bar, but the song doesn't really do anything for me. 6/10

I'm not really familiar with this band, and it's a shame, obviously. Great melodious song with an amazing singing. 10/10.

I was surprised to learn this was from 2021 as it reminds me a lot of one of those hair metal ballads in the late 80s. 7/10
