Greetings Seibertronians! Friend of the site, and awesome musician, Stan Bush, dropped us a line to let us know that his brand new album launched yesterday! The album, Dare to Dream, has already received rave reviews, and you can get it from Stan's own website.

A single from the album, "Born to Fight" has just recieved a music video from Netflix, promoting two of the fighting anime on their service, BAKI, and Kengan Ashura.



For Transformers fans, Stan Bush needs little introduction, having contributed songs to the 1986 Transformers animated movie, including "The Touch", which has gone on to appear in other works, such as Saints Row 4 game.

You said it. This reminds me of Night Ranger in their heyday. May have to pick this album up if this is an example. I liked to the chord progs in the refrain.

The song & album cover sold me. The music video, not so much. :D

Yeah... give me instead some 80's laser in the background with Stan riffing on guitar instead and it's perfect.

I was expecting it to be utterly cringe-worthy but was pleasantly surprised - it's not bad at all!

It sounds like it would fit right in with the other music from the '86 Transformers Movie, which is all good in my book. Though I suppose you'd have to ignore the fact that none of the G1 cartoon Transformers were ever "born" at all...

Above all, it's good to hear something that isn't an over-produced, auto-tuned, 90's-dial-up-internet/bunch of computerized noises mushed together to resemble a beat; the kind of ear-rape & assault on the senses that seems to dominate the charts these days.

Seconded, thirded, fourthed, and fifthed. This song has great chord progressions, nice balance, and real musicianship. Computers are great to help balance the sounds and mix, but they shouldn't be the primary "instrument".

These days they don't care if you can sing, hold a note or even play an instrument - you can be tone deaf, so long as you have a marketable "look." If you have that, they can write meaningless songs for you to pretend to sing, auto-tune your voice while banging together some pots & pans then edit the whole lot together with some computerized techno-mush & call it a song.

That, or straight up steal the tune from an old song & bastardize it with those same computerized sounds & call it a "modernized remake." It's the musical equivalent of Zeta giving their Unicron design to Studio Cell following legal threats from Hasbro, only for Studio Cell to go on & sell the exact same product but the with the head packaged separately (because that's clearly NOT Unicron anymore, Hasbro!) :roll:

Most real musicianship has disappeared from the mainstream. There's no artistry anymore - that's too much work. Rather it's all this wrote, copy/paste of a play-by-play scheme the music industry has found that makes easy money. It's no longer about art, it's all business, which is sad. Based on talent & hard work, someone like Stan Bush certainly deserves to be more well-known than he currently is.

But no, the music bigwigs seem to want one thing & one thing only: the easily replaceable, cookie-cutter type; attractive enough to make quasi-pornographic "music" videos for songs with suggestive lyrics & perform them with the obligatory, synchronized group dancing in an attempt to hypnotize you into believing that what you're seeing & hearing is something that somehow isn't bereft of talent or substance. That is, until they decide to discard their "star" the moment they either get too old or become a "rich-sick-weird" problem... & replace them with another, younger sap to repeat the process. Ugh.

Sorry for the rant, modern music is a real peeve, any notion or mention of it hits a nerve with me. Just nobody mention Rihanna, that'll bring on a whole other extended rant lol :HEADHURTS:
