Had no idea that this was coming out. Would like to hear a sample first, but have been unable to find one.

From Retroactive:

CARLSEN CROMWELL - THE LUCKY SIDE (CD, 2015) Now available on eBay and Amazon from Bloodgood vocalist and former bassist for Eddie Money and Air Supply!

Description from eBay:

Longtime friends, Les Carlsen (Bloodgood vocalist) and Don Cromwell (ex-Eddie Money/ex-Air Supply bassist) have finally teamed up to combine their extravagant talents to create the 70’s rock influenced, The Lucky Side!  Tight rhythms, big hooks, crisp production, and the trademark Les Carlson vocals are reminiscent of the best of 70’s era Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, The Eagles, and Steve Perry!  For fans of quality AOR and 70’s rock!

I saw that Matt Hunt posted about the release on facebook, but like you I would really like to hear it first.  Did a quick internet search and couldn't find anything about the project.

Wow, that is so nice. I am a huge fan of Les Carlsen's voice and now is the opportunity to hear how would he sound out of bloodgood, even though he has sang with Tourniquet, Lyberty and justice and Worldview, this is his own project...

Is it going to be released online?

I don't see any mp3 options for it right now. There is scant info available about it, though

After hearing it, I don't think I will be adding it to my collection. I really don't like Les' voice on this. Rock music hides vocal flaws, this style exposes them.

But who knows, there has been a lot of stuff that I didn't like at first but then my tastes changed and I wound up loving it.

I thought Les' voice was good enough, but the song just seemed rather lack-luster to me.  For a song called "Fired Up Tonight" I would have expected it to be a bit more lively.  I hope this isn't the best of the music from the album or I will probably have to pass.

Yeah, the title would make you think that, wouldn't you... Razz


Les' voice just just sounds tired and old to me

Stop that, it's really hard to understand you when you talk with your tongue stuck in your cheek.  You also run the risk of biting your tongue.

After hearing the song, I must say that I am looking forward to hearing the song.  It doesn't sound like anything in the Christian metal scene or the CCM arena.  It definitely sounds 70s rock.  Seeing that I am getting ever closer to that half century mark, I like this!

The song is just nice. Not outstanding, but not bad. Even though Les voice seen to be old, I still enjoy it. I am a great fan of his singing. Who knows, I might get it. It is a different kind of music to my catalog...

Don't make me have to grab my walking stick and wack you with it, you young whippersnapper.  My false teeth can keep biting long after they come out too, ya' know!
