How can I give them anything less than a 10 with Slamer and Greer in the band!
I am anxiously awaiting the third album, and wearing out my dvd.
Now if we could only get them to tour the states!!!!
Even better would be youngstown! :D :D :D

Good to see that you haven't given up the polls entirely, Al!

7K has to be a 7 for me, at least for now. I saw them about a year ago in Germany, and they come across as damn fine musicians (and nice guys), however, I must admit that their music is a bit too straight for my tastes and lacks just that little bit of peculiarity (or whatever you wanna call it) that could make it stick with me.

Looking forward to that third album, which is allegedly "in the writing" - if it's any good I could be persuaded to go for an 8. :wink:

Excellent musicians, especially Mike (of course) and Billy, who is also a great vocalist.
Songwriting and lyrics are not top notch imo.
It's all too predictable and I have the feeling that, when I have heared 3 songs, I have heared the whole album. A sort of formula rock in the vein of Bon Jovi a.o. Therefor it can't keep my interest for long.
Sorry to say this, but it's just my taste. Rounds up to a 6 from me.

I agree with jam and 1after2 here. Excellent musicians, I like the music when I hear it but I lose interest already after listening 2 or 3 times.

The song writing follows the same template over and over which isn't bad because they are so skilled, but... :roll: You KNOW when the bridge will come and you KNOW how it will sound and you KNOW when Mike's solo will begin (that's the best part of the song! :wink: ).


A 7 is suitable for the 7th Key.

Good to see another poll here Al... keep 'em coming !!

I gave Seventh Key an 8 - great vocals and with any Slamer contribution will most likely keep me coming back again and again.

Well said but the Slamer factor has me bump up a point. 7 from me.
