Place Vendome - Close to the Sun

I keep hoping Place Vendome will stop being so old and lame. A supergroup featuring half of Helloween's twenty-five year old original lineup, they legit sound ready to be put down. Michael Kiske croons like Gary Busey on several tracks and the band feels softer than Three Dog Night when the ballads come around. Sad to see one of my teenage metal idols, Gus G, now solos on generic old people rock albums.
