The the riff and vocal chord used in the chorus in Gojira Comes Again is ripping off a track I know and it's driving me mad that I can't put my finger on it!

...vocal Note! Image ✨ ... vocal Melody? Image

~ you mean the little ooh ohh ♪ ♫ (?)

I think that's either the end of the chorus melody (melo-end? :D) or the coda I'unno?

But it does sound very reminiscent of another song doesn't it! :o

Quick review. # Stars only w/minor comment if any.

Exemples: ★★★★ = 4 points
★★★★½ = 4.5 points.

Max 5 points.

01 - Fastway - Love Love Love
SCP - ★★★★½ (I like. Makes me remember how much I want a CD release of the extended Love Countdown.)

02 - Tipsy & Tipsy - Under The Power Of My Heart
Asia - ★★★★★ (These days Asia is like... made a killer, ground-breaking tune or nothing I swear lol)

03 - Dave Rodgers - Break Into The Music
Sun Fire - ★★★★½ (Dat guitar solo)

04 - Chai - Gojira Comes Again
SinclaireStyle - ★★★★★ (You're my doll, rock 'n' roll, feel the glamour and pain; Kiss me here, touch me there, hanky panky)

05 - Pamsy - I'm Not Dreaming
SCP - ★★★★ (Grew to like it more than I thought I would. And the songs are getting slower and slower...)

06 - J-Stark - Ring My Bells
Delta - ★★★½ (If there was a single on this compilation I wish had an edit, it would be this song)

07 - Claudia VIP - Furious Thunder
Hi-NRG Attack - ★★★★ (New female singer is A-OK in my book. But...... the song sounds the same than the last 15 we heard.)

08 - Norma Sheffield - Fall In Love
Sun Fire - ★★ (Heh. I'm generous here.)

09 - Paul Harris - Love Comes
Delta - 0½ (The minute I heard the vocal clip at the beginning, I skipped the track)

10 - Nathalie - Really Love Ya
SinclaireStyle - ★★★★½ (That funky jingle in the intro is too f*ing good for its own merit lol)

11 - Manuel - Oh My Gosh
GoGo's Musc - ★★★★½ (HOLY SHIT (explicit version of the title). Also, "Let's fuck" is the theme to all Manuel's lyrics, I swear)

12 - Stephy Martin - Free Into The Sky
Dima - ★ (The song loses all excitement once the songs leaves the intro... I miss Delta+Newfield Stephy era :( )

13 - Lucky Boy - Dollars Go
Hi-NRG Attack - ★★★★ ('Grats again to McBazooka for his SEB debut; great fit!)

14 - Nuage - Love Is In The Air
GoGo's Music - ★★★★★ (Wow...)

15 - Hotblade - All Time High
SCP - ★★½ (I think it's the first Hotblade song I don't really a give a damn about...)

OVERALL: ★★★★½ (Very good. I enjoyed the overall package. 👍👍)

Pretty much in agreement with your review, Lebon. Ring My Bells is a little too repetitive for my taste.

I finally got my copy of 242 after I accidentily ordered it with the slowest-possible shipping method. :D
I listened to the album twice by now, these are my first impressions:

Really good:
Free Into The Sky (though the intro is the best part)
Under The Power Of My heart
I'm Not Dreaming
Ring My Bell (this will probably become my favorite song)
Love Comes
Oh My Gosh (I like the clear-sung lyrics)

Average/still needs time to grow on me:
Gojira Comes Again/Barbie Girl (Damn, this song was so overhyped. The first preview didn't get me at all and I wasn't excited for it. It's just an average song for me.)
Furious Thunder
Dollars Go (I'm happy for Anthony to have his SEB debut, but it's not my cup of tea)

Bad:
Love Love Love (the title alone is a reason)
All Time High (sounds pretty generic)
Break Into The Music (Dave Rodgers doesn't sound good anymore since the label became Sun Fire...)

Awful/Burn it:
Fall In Love (Man, I hate Norma Sheffield songs. Her songs soudn so boring and emotionless.)
Really Love Ya (SinclaireStyle, what happened to your awesomeness you had in the 220s?)
