Title: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: hefdaddy42 on April 16, 2016, 05:17:36 AM
The old one was getting long and unwieldy.  Almost 2 years old.  You can find it here (http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=42201.0).

Still listening to Yes - Fragile.

Only one listen to the Mob Rules so far and it was ok but nothing as great as the last one. Need to play it more though. The other I don't know

I thought the same upon my first listen of Tales from Beyond.  I'm three listens in now... it keeps improving.

Completely unrelated to the music, but if you like the album cover, check out Polish artist Zdzislaw. Creepiest art there is.

Always a little bummed when my favorite song off an album is the very first one, but Materia is amazing all the way through so here it's not that bad. Oh and El Cielo is amazing too though not on the same level.

Nice to see another Pineapple Thief fan. I discovered them years ago. It has been a while since I listened to them, though. When I first heard them, I had just bought Variations on a Dream. They reminded me of Radiohead (but better) and Porcupine Tree.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5

That's how I explain them as well John.  I love their dreaminess of their melodies.

Can't say I'm a huge fan but I quite enjoy All the Wars all the way through, and I love the first song on that album, Burning Pieces.

Lol, I've only checked out 19 roulette albums and my roulette ended like 6 months before yours did. I'm so slow. :lol

In fairness, if you counted other albums from artists that I learned about via roulette, that number goes up to 36. But still. So slow. :lol

I haven't counted how many I've already checked out because they blended in with my own discoveries and stuff, but it's probably already close to or even more than 19 :lol and I'm going through these remaining 50 at like 1-2 a day depending on which days I have the time for it.

Yes it is! Also on the list based on your submissions: Bent Knee - Shiny Eyed Babies/Igorrr - Hallelujah on top of the ones I already checked (DMM, Porcupine Tree and Destrage IIRC). Don't actually know why I wanted to check that Igorrr album so bad, I was probably interested in the sheer craziness even though my impression wasn't fantastically positive.

Yeah Hallelujah is really fucked up, and may take a long time to appreciate it if you aren't into weird/experimental stuff to begin with, but it's worth it.

I haven't counted how many I've already checked out because they blended in with my own discoveries and stuff, but it's probably already close to or even more than 19 :lol and I'm going through these remaining 50 at like 1-2 a day depending on which days I have the time for it.
by my count i've checked out 17 albums directly from my roulette, with 8 more albums from some of the artists i got roulette albums from. but then a fair number of those were albums i was already interested in anyways, so  :lol

Accept - metal heart, balls to the wall

Prince - purple rain. Strange coincidence. Came on the memory stick in the car hours before I heard the news. I don't listen to it often and I skipped the shit songs. So shocked when I got home and put the news on.

agalloch - ashes against the grain
this is less immediate than the mantle but i like it a fair bit, it feels like a deeper record to me. will need more spins before i really "get" it tho i think
swallow the sun - songs from the north iii
i kind of figured this disc wouldn't do as much for me as the other two and i was right but it's still... solid, at the very least
solstafir - svartir sandar
fjara is the kind of song i described as "makes me want to buy the band's entire discography" and yeah that's still true, but the rest of the songs don't really match up to it, though there are still plenty good tracks
ulver - shadows of the sun
this is the worst walking-to-work music ever, but also quite good. solitude is a bit melodramatic i guess, not a fan of it but the rest, nice

yeah, this is just kinda meh for me. it's alright. i don't think it's atmospheric enough to quite work for me and there's not a ton of emotional potency besides "really dark and heavy" and eeehhh. i expected this though so i cant' say i'm disappointed and i like the other two discs a fair bit so

so it's like, the black metal version of Addicted!, kind of
in the sense that it's pretty poppy but doesn't sacrifice its metal aesthetic
also it's atmospheric as hell and really damn good? like wow, apparently their previous two are really good too and i'm gonna have to check them both out now, though they seem a lot rarer to find/purchase physical copies of  :'(

the closer is pretty good but an entire album of this is too much for me, it seems, been pretty restless for the last few tracks and the metallica cover is lulzy, though i guess it kind of makes sense, but yeah, prob passing on this

hmmmm. this is like, enslaved but with saxophone basically
which is not a bad thing to be. i dunno though i'm not sure who the audience of this is.
some parts are too intense to be for the general prog metal crowd, but some parts are too straightforward prog to appeal to the black metal crowd
i guess it appeals to the crowd that likes both? which is pretty niche imo, but obviously it has wider appeal than i'm giving it credit for.
i dunno maybe it's because i should like this more than i do? it's alright tho

Pale Folklore deserves more love, from me too, I usually listen to The Mantle, Ashes or The White EP.
I heard Oceansize's Effloresce a while ago and I didn't like it. But Frames is something else, I'm really glad I came back to this band.
And I think Either/Or finally clicked with me in it's entirety. Maybe listening to it in dark and being awake for too long did the trick :P

tbh this cover looks like they google searched "spider", took one of the first results, and just stuck it on a black background and plastered their logo over it

wiseman: honestly this is pretty cool overall, it made me want the album when i first listened to it too so
alley cat: this kind of annoyed me, but it wasn't bad. solo sucked imo? nice groove to some parts at least
angelmaker: parts of this are pretty cool, some are a bit overly cheesy, and that guitar solo was laaaame
king of whitewater: this is like, high-quality cheese. as in, like, some fancy french cheese or something but the ones that actually taste good
long way home: dunno, kinda feel like he's oversinging his one, but it's solid. the female vocals are great though, omg, make her the lead singer
move on through: omg that bass solo <3 also the second bass solo. this is pretty solid overall really though there some cheesy cheese
the great escape: i dunno, as far as prog epics go, this is... alright? i just don't feel like i get a lot out of it.

man i'm not feeling very confident about getting this one now tbh  :lol
dunno, just don't think the band is for me

Wouldn't be surprised in some cases, but for me I just don't listen to the radio pretty much ever. Between my own iPod and CD collection and my daughter's iPod and CD collection, and her playing pandora through the car stereo, I just never hear stuff like that. She's more into pop-punk I guess it's called. Stuff that would be on Warped Tour basically, and Green Day, Blink 182, etc.

This is one of the reasons. Another reason is that people generally think all hip hop is utter shite.

Despite his childish attitude sometimes and huge ego, dude has made a few classics (which is something extremely rare for mainstream hip hop).

Probably me listening to Burial before it had something to do, but I'm really digging it now - just focusing on the atmosphere and the textures more than in the songwriting aspect, and having it as background music, helps quite a bit I guess.

Revisiting some Bjork.

Post has some fillers but it's great nonetheless. Especially Hyper Ballad, I Miss You and Isobel makes up for it.

Homogenic though... what a record. Not a single song i dislike in it.



Now, into Debut and Vespertine.

i am listening to this right now

(http://www.metalsucks.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/PromoImage.jpg)

which is probably the closest i've ever gotten to listening to something that's not music and actually enjoying it
so yeah, maybe

side-note: i'm pretty sure this isn't made for any audience and i'm not sure i actually like it, but i'm tempted to throw money at them for it (like $5 i guess even tho technically it can be a free download) because it's just kind of fascinating

like... this album wants to freaking marry chaos and dissonance as a concept, but it does so in a tasteful way? maybe it's a bit overindulgent but. i dunno. it's hard to know. only one of two things can happen; either i get this and it never clicks for me and i end up hating it, or i listen to it about 30 times and praise it as the best thing to ever happen to music.

the first few minutes of in hell's name are the best part of the album, if the rest of the song was that good it'd be one of my favorite songs ever
honestly i like this a fair bit though, one of the better albums from my last (huge) bunch

Debut is my favourite Bjork album. Post is horribly hit and miss. The entire album is back and forth between brilliant tracks and average/bad tracks. Homogenic is good the whole way, but try as I might, I'm just lukewarm to almost everything of it. Based on those reactions, I haven't seen any point in checking out more.

Blue Lines is still an amazing album though. I like it a wee bit better than Mezzanine even. And Protection is most likely my favourite song of theirs.

Journey and Celldweller are still on the list to check out, won't be too long. And Circle of Illusion is still a maybe, not sure about it. Also kinda interested in some more of Black Mages but like CoI not sure about it yet, depends on my free time.

I haven't had a time to check it out yet but unfortunately I haven't heard many good things. :/ A lot of "Kashiwa Daisuke half-assing it" and "It's not close to the first one", but I will check it out either way.

Anyhow, OnT: British Theatre - Mastery. Definitely my AOTY so far. I was sad when Oceansize broke up, but with Vennart's solo album last year and now this, things are looking good.

I can understand why they say so - there are no electronics nor big innovations on this album, just Daisuke on his piano plus some chamber musicians on strings and a jazz drummer. I think the beauty and passion of these tracks just make up for the lack of "creativity" or whatever people are complaining about.

Don't have my list right now, but I can atleast say that Kyuss album was amazing, anything above 7.5/10 is a purchase in the future for me, if not immediately. (7.5/10 may sound average but I rarely score 8/10 or higher for albums, in fact, only one album this year got a higher score than 8.5/10 from me, TGM by BTBAM) And that Kyuss album is one of my favorites so far :tup Same thing with the Bent Knee album, liked the album a lot but Being Human was definitely not my favorite.

Igorrr is also on my list, the song didn't score too high but I'm very interested in it. Already got In Absentia earlier, same for the Destrage album. And I don't remember if it was you who sent Riverside or someone else, but Love Fear Time Machine is on the list too.

After like 5+ listens I don't think I like 1985 as much as most seem to, but fuck man, The Architect is so good, that's by far my favorite of the album right now.

This album has likely surpassed Gore for AOTY 2016 so far, but it's hella close.

i'm legit tempted to call the title track of the apologist a 10/10 song, i really can't find any fault with it other that the fact that its ending is a segue (which works perfectly in context of the album so it's not even a problem) and there's so many fantastic moments it's unreal aaahh

Not as consistently good as Dummy (but then, few albums are), but there are some real gems on there, like Hunter, We Carry On, Machine Gun and Threads. Definitely worth a listen either way.

Ok, your opinion changed my opinion  :P

I love 6 tracks on Loveless and also it has only one track i don't care about. In comparison, i only love 3 tracks on Souvlaki and it has 3 i don't care about.

Gave a 10 and 7 overall for the respective albums.

Loveless is more consistently good, but Souvlaki has much better highs. The lows on Souvlaki aren't even bad either.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Zantera on May 01, 2016, 11:06:19 AM
Loveless is the bigger cult album and the more classic, but Souvlaki is slightly better. But they're both really good. I think MBV being rated higher than Slowdive in general (more popular) is a joke considering Slowdive's discography as a whole is far superior to MBV's. Apart from Loveless, the rest MBV has done is very OK whereas the other 2 Slowdive albums are both genuinely great.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Outcrier on May 01, 2016, 11:49:39 AM
I still remind the first time i listened to Souvlaki. I already knew and loved Machine Gun and When the Sun Hits but, when i decided to explore the rest, it wasn't up to par. It was very disappointing because i had this feeling i would love the album.

Agreed on those, great tracks. But I feel most songs are... unfinished, some really go nowhere or end up abruptly. Still a good album.

My first serious attempt to get into this behemoth. It was more fucked up than expected, but I quite like to atmosphere so I'll get back to it later this week. It should take me no less than 10 listens to start to "get it", but I think it will be worth the ride.

I remember the day I discovered that album (in June 2014 :D), I listened to that album multiple times. And I rarely, if ever, do that. Sadly, their other albums I heard didn't click with me (yet).

I liked the most recent album they put out with Chelsea Wolfe appearing on a song, but Russian Circles (and God Is an Astronaut) always came off as middle of the road-tier post-rock/metal to me. Nothing too interesting. :(

I'm just getting into GIAA and I like them, especially All Is Violent, All Is Bright. That album and RC's Enter are among few post-rock album I can listen to anytime. Both are pretty accessible. For something like Godspeed I have to be in certain mood. But I'm not too big fan of post-rock. Another album I love is Mono's Hymn to the Immortal Wind.

all is violent, all is bright was one of the least interesting post-rock albums i've ever gotten. dunno. maybe it's because i was never huge into that song-based style of post-rock, my favorite post-rock albums are the ones where all the songs flow into each other and are heavily atmospheric  :lol

hymn to the immortal wind was in my top 50 albums list :P
i actually have the last four mono albums and i've listened to their older stuff too, generally i find their music pleasant but not really especially memorable, hymn is really good though

I saw them on two separate tours behind the first album, was bummed I had to miss the first US run behind Hot Streak. I dig the tunes to begin with, Billy Sheehan is just absurd to watch live, and Mike looks like he's having as much fun behind the kit as I've seen in a long time.

(http://i.imgur.com/bWLRQ5r.gif?noredirect)

On my second straight day of listening to the Winery Dogs Live in Japan. Seriously can't wait for another North America tour from them.

I'd like to see them when they come back.

I saw them on two separate tours behind the first album, was bummed I had to miss the first US run behind Hot Streak. I dig the tunes to begin with, Billy Sheehan is just absurd to watch live, and Mike looks like he's having as much fun behind the kit as I've seen in a long time.

I've always loved watching MP live. When I picked up the blu-ray of PSMS, and I was watching them doing Crimson Sunrise, the first thing I thought was that I miss his stage presence in DT.

Just listened to it, well, it could use vocals. But not growly vocals so I guess that's why they left it as instrumental. :biggrin:

If that's a throwback piece, I wonder which one is the throwup piece.

What are you thoughts on The Art of Loss, 425?

I'm probably the wrong person to ask, because I haven't really been a big Redemption fan. I've had Snowfall on Judgment Day for a while, and I like some of the songs but haven't really gotten into others. I decided to get the new one because I do appreciate what some of what this band does and wanted to see if a different album would do better for me. In particular I liked Love Kill Us All/Life in One Day best by far on Snowfall and I wanted to hear them tackle a 20+ epic.

And I really love the artwork on this album.

Two listens in, I'm pretty sure I like it better than Snowfall. The short songs are memorable for the most part, the title track, Slouching Towards Bethlehem and That Golden Light being standouts for me. And I think the epic is pretty good—not jaw-dropping, but generally enjoyable. Generally, I'd say this album definitely serves up proggish metal with good songwriting. I enjoy it and I may check out more of their work. But probably based on my level of interest in that style more than anything else, it's also not in the vicinity of 10/10 AOTY material for me. Enjoyable listen, but nothing revelatory to me.

I like this album a lot, but the Wings For Marie/10,000 Days suite or whatever it is goes on for far too long and becomes a snoozefest. Intension could be omited and it wouldn't hurt the album at all.
The rest of the songs are easily in the 8-10 range though. (Jambi is really fun to play on guitar  :hefdaddy)

yeah, the album basically ends for me after 10,000 Days, the rest of the tracks range from "decent" to "really boring" and Intension might be the worst Tool song that isn't just dumb noises tbh, it's just pointless

Also, I didn't look at the pictures, going to do that right now.

Edit: um, I don't know what's so hilarious. Yeah, they're a bit on the cheesy side, but the whole album is like that, so it works for me.

My first ever Katatonia album, I actually liked the artwork and booklet before I started to enjoy the music.
It brings back some good memories too, I was holidaying in England just after it's release and took a chance with it.

I didn't think this was a particularly fogey record? It's prog metal and it came out in like 2014.

Exactly this

i mean it's like that halfway point between power metal and prog metal that a lot of the fogeys seem to love

Some of the fogeys.... there's plenty that aren't into this - but overall, there are very few that dig paramacore.

I've always thought of the term "fogey rock" as a somewhat innocent knock on the (perhaps more common) "dad rock" term. Music that is perhaps a bit harmless, not offensive and somewhat easy to digest. Things like harsh vocals or really experimental music might be met with "back in my day we did it another way" or "what are the kids listening to these days?" and perhaps a slight "stuck in the past"-mindset or being very anti new things.

I think it's interesting considering the evolution we've had in music though. A band like Iron Maiden would be considered fogey rock by a lot of people, yet when Maiden got their big break, they were a pretty "edgy" metal band that upset a lot of parents because of the lyrics and the imagery. Today, us younger people scoff at that and something else is the "new thing". So I think it's interesting how the perspective has changed as time has changed. Maybe in 20 years, people will look back at the Zantera/Sacul music like Swans, Death Grips or Boris and say "that's fogey music".  :lol

Personally I don't mind the term. There's good music that would be considered "fogey rock", I think the expression has less to do with quality and more to do with music that might be appealing to older people because it's fairly "safe".

YOUR NAME IS FUCK
I SHIT BLOOOOOOOOOD
"Dad, turn off that boring old crap".

I don't think Vanden Plas is fogey music unless you lump all the progressive / power metal into "fogey music" category.
Which I would.

My taste is all over the place these days.

I keep up with very few currently operating bands anymore, and the ones I do are either proper experimental shit (Swans, Fire! Orchestra, GY!BE, Angles 9), or pop (Florence + the Machine, Fat Freddy's Drop, Coldplay, Kimbra). Basically polar opposites.

Meanwhile, the two most recent metal albums I bought were ADTOE and Watershed, both on release. One of those is eight years old.

And I'm slowly turning fogey-er than all but the fogey-est fogeys. I've had shit like Charles Mingus, Nina Simone, Jacques Brel, and Nick Drake on high rotation in the past few years.

hmm. this both has more metal stuff and more atmospheric stuff than their previous, it feels like
also the keyboard player picked a better synth tone for every song, except the final long track
it feels a bit more cohesive overall though

for the record these and a few others in my bunch of albums were just "lol why not" albums bcuz they were so cheap from the seller anyways, but i do kinda dig this band's sound regardless  :lol

Well, you listen to a lot power metal, so you may not have the most finely honed cheese detector. :P

I just don't think that prog and power metal bands ever really pull off band pictures that well. Especially when they are in what certainly looks like their 40s or even 50s and they're trying to look all intense and "metal" with plunging necklines.

Listened to this yesterday night, because the Leprous Survivor prompted me to. Forgot there's actually quite some awesome stuff on it. I don't listen to this nearly as often, but the style is quite distinctive - most like Tall Poppy Syndrome. Also I found Einar's screams to actually be better than the ones he does on The Congregation. Fans of Leprous' latest two albums will find not much of interest here to be honest, but I really enjoyed my listen.

Don't know which one you got, but the opener (Hypnos) is probably the one I'd go with, my #2 song off the album and probably the most accessible, has a lot of cool ideas in under 5 minutes so it stays interesting too.

It's funny, Mandroid seems to be everything I do like about Coheed and Cambria minus everything I dislike, they're a bit more metal too and I feel it works better for that style, to my tastes.

Lots of great stuff on FOTD.

Definitely liking it better the more I listen to it. Who knows, it may eventually pass No Prayer for me. It definitely has the two best songs on either album. Judas Be My Guide is another really good one. Be Quick or Be Dead, Wasting Love and The Fugitive are solid. And I like Fear Is the Key more and more—I just wish it was a bit more compact.


Don't know which one you got, but the opener (Hypnos) is probably the one I'd go with, my #2 song off the album and probably the most accessible, has a lot of cool ideas in under 5 minutes so it stays interesting too.

It's funny, Mandroid seems to be everything I do like about Coheed and Cambria minus everything I dislike, they're a bit more metal too and I feel it works better for that style, to my tastes.

We got Iron Hands. To me, definitely didn't stand up to most of Coheed's stuff. Coheed does a lot of great work with dynamics and anthemic choruses that I really enjoy.

*sigh* Here we go, for the sake of the survivor. I think this is only the second time I've listened to this. First listen was just so... you know... that I never picked it up again. I'm listening to the rehearsal DVD version right now so that at least the production is halfway decent. I think that's my only chance of getting into this one in any way.

Post by: 425 on May 09, 2016, 11:29:18 PM
I'm only on the second track and it's rather frustrating. Because it's not horrible, but just really not well executed. They get going on a good idea, then they muck it up or just generally play poorly. And the songs are too long for the number of ideas that are in them. I do appreciate having the rehearsal version because at least Lars has a normal drum sound. The audio quality still isn't great, and James and Kirk are still muddy, but at least it's better than the album.

I would say song St. Anger is great if it was few minutes shorter. This way it's one song repeated twice.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: 425 on May 10, 2016, 12:10:42 AM
I can see why someone would like it. I really kind of think it's meh, but I can't take the view that it's all trash, either. There are good ideas in there. First four tracks are actually pretty good, though they could use some editing. Personally, I think instead of all but disowning it, they should try to rehabilitate some of the songs. I think they could break out the title track or Some Kind of Monster in an abbreviated form live, see if they work. If people hate it, it's just 5 minutes out of a 2 hour show.

On Shoot Me Again, this is another one that's solid but I think meanders a bit much.

It honestly feels like a majority of the songs on this album are songs mediocre songs hampered by bad production that have good songs inside of them, that could be brought out. I think there's a pretty good 11-track, 55-minute album inside this 11-track, 75-minute album.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: wolfking on May 10, 2016, 12:18:07 AM
The production and length of songs certainly hurts it.  I guess I wrote it off when it came out but redicovered it years later when I wasn't that into Metallica anymore and I had no expectations from it.  I think that's why I like it.  I was very disappointed when it came out though.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Fluffy Lothario on May 10, 2016, 02:04:54 AM
Essentially the same with me. Didn't give St Anger a proper listen on release. When Death Magnetic came out, I found it so bland, I went back to St Anger and realised I liked a good chunk of what they did on that album. I like the flawed roughness of it. I like how long they dwell on ideas, so long as I like the idea. At least they were trying to do something interesting.

But then I liked Lulu, so what would I know?
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Zantera on May 10, 2016, 02:55:10 AM
St. Anger is pretty bad but I'll take it over Death Magnetic to be honest. Some Kind of Monster is definitely the best song on it, but most of them go on for way too long.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Train of Naught on May 10, 2016, 03:01:53 AM
Yeah I ain't participating in the St. Anger survivor :lol, it's my least favorite Metallica album by a huge margin. For me everything just blurs together into one big lump of metal snare drums and weird vocal melodies. There's only three songs I actually know quite well, one of those I really like (Sweet Amber) and the other two I think are just awful (St. Anger and Frantic).

this one's a lot more electronic and darker than the other two, or it feels like that on first listen.
i dig it a lot tho. neath waters is this really weird industrial symphonic piece and if the instruments were real it'd probably be mindblowing but it's still great as-is too so

I'm making an effort to give these guys a chance, as they are so central to the late '60s psychedelic/heavy rock/blues shit I dig, and seems to be what everyone's referring to when they rave about Clapton. But at the moment, their stuff isn't jumping out at me. It's good, but feels like it hasn't aged as well as other stuff from this period.

Finally listened to this and it's great :azn: I really love the atmosphere in most tracks, Identikit is my favourite I think. My ony "complaint" is that all the songs have the same feel/atmosphere and slow pace, something to contrast that would have been good I think. (or perhaps that might just make it less cohesive :p )

I nice break from listening to Radiohead's record pretty much non-stop. Then I discovered this, the best thrash metal album I've heard in years. It's basically thrash metal, but with a black metal influence and lots of progressive touches, highly technical, energetic and emotional. How come nobody told me about this band?

Thy Catafalque - Cor Cordium

there is literally no cover for this, as it is just a demo.
and yeah the sound quality is awful but
the music is pretty cool, though i think at least a few of these tracks were on the two albums that followed, which is like, fair enough, it's a demo

anyways i listened to these since there's a "the early works" compilation that's literally just their first three albums remastered, which sounds like a good time all things considered

I would say it is better than the samples suggested but like most of my recent listens to new releases it's all very predictable and a rating around 80%.   Claus of course is the "voice of Bonfire" and he really IS Bonfire in many ways , so it sounds like a fairly average Bonfire album .   Michael Voss mucked around in Bonfire from time to time too and he has his own sound , so there are also elements of Demon Drive, Mad Max etc......    A decent album but that's about all.

The Siloam is obscure Christian rock/metal - a couple of really good tracks but not a consistent album IMO

The Holland is Batio's first main band - straight ahead mid 80's hard rock with his shred.  Pretty decent actually.

I think it'll matter a lot what you sampled.   I'm finding it very up and down - the first couple of tracks were very promising and then the songwriting got a bit all over the place.    On a positive note (aside from the concept - I pay little attention as usual :lol ) I think you can tell that they have taken the time to write something that isn't cookie cutter stuff - it's quite ambitious and I can see huge potential but it just hasn't quite come together as well as it might have.

I will listen again as it has "grower" potential and the girl has a bit of Floor Jansen in her voice, which is never a bad thing.  The growls aren't too bad either. Definitely not a bad album by any means.

I believe I tracked that one down because I liked the singer but found he didn't appear on much that was any good.

If you like the singer , this is another rare one you might want to check out

My girlfriend randomly bought me this on vinyl for my birthday. Didn't really know what to expect but it's actually pretty  :metal

I'd recommend Pitch Black Progress, it's almost as good as Holographic Universe. Their newer stuff after Christian Alvestam left is good, but not nearly up to the level of their previous quality.

You should, however, definitely check out Solution .45, an awesome melodeath band that Christian Alvestam formed after leaving Scar Symmetry. Their 2010 debut "For Aeons Past" is probably just as good as Holographic Universe, if not better.

Cheers dude, I'll check out Pitch Black Progress soon.

I've actually got For Aeons Past, I must admit I prefer Holographic Universe more but probably haven't listened to For Aeons Past as much. I'm pretty sure I got both albums off a Canadian guy I met whilst travelling in Australia, he was also a huge Devin Townsend fan and I somehow only ended up with the first 3 tracks off Terria when we traded music. That has long since been remedied  :lol

Though I'd actually say that the first three tracks on Terria are probably the weakest on the album. Of course, given that it's my #2 album of all time, that's not saying much, but I think they pale in comparison of the sheer genius of Deep Peace, Nobody's Here and Tiny Tears.

Yea it's weird, I loved Earth Day (and still do) but this was back in 2012 and I didn't end up getting the album until last year. That was the only Devin Townsend he gave me (other than filling in the gaps with a few SYL albums I didn't have). Deep Peace is my favourite off Terria by a long way I'd say, maybe if I'd gotten the first 4 tracks instead I would have gotten into Devin a lot sooner  :lol

I'm slowly getting into more of this album—already loved the epic, but want to try to get into the shorter ones. Alley Cat clicked a while again, and Wiseman clicked just now. I think the unique thing about Seventh Wonder is that Tommy has an unconventional approach to writing vocal melodies. I don't know enough about music to describe it, but it feels like more of a theatrical approach to the melodies than a rock approach (and he definitely has a theatrical style). In Kamelot he seems to write melodies that are closer to conventional rock/metal, but Seventh Wonder you get these big looping melodies that are just a little different (rhythmically different?) from what you expect them to be.

Post by: 425 on May 20, 2016, 11:28:16 AM
I can definitely see it being exhausting as a whole. I'd say maybe take the first six songs on their own and then take the epic on its own at first?

However there's no getting around this being pretty much genre-defined prog metal, aside from the somewhat different approach on vocal melodies. I'd say they're one of the better bands in the genre, but if you're someone who isn't too interested in Dream Theater-style music anymore, I'm not sure it'll do much for you besides maybe liking a couple of the songs.

Honestly, those two just refuse to click for me, particularly King of Whitewater. I guess I've listened to them about 4 times now, and while there are parts that I like, I just don't have any strong feelings about either one of them. I'm sure they'll get more listens down the road, because I love the epic, I really like Wiseman and Alley Cat, and I think Long Way Home and Move On Through are solid, so maybe those two will click for me. But right now, I can't say I particularly care for them beyond "yeah, this is a decent song I guess." :-\

Definitely don't give up on them! I think Long Way Home is the only song on the album that I don't particularly care for, it's just a little too cheesy for my tastes.

One thing that I really appreciate on the album is how audible and interesting the bass is. That bass solo in Move on Through is such a cool moment.

Not a big fan of the album, but FUCK that is an amazing cover. Since I so rarely listen to the music, I often forget how stunning the art is.

Oh yeah. I've had this band on my list to check out for quite a while, I'll see if I get to it in time but that's one amazing cover.

First time listening to the Katatonia and Headspace albums today. Katatonia was amazing, Headspace not as good as IAA but I loved that record, Poluted Alcohol is :hefdaddy though, so beautiful.

I just recently got that one, I've only listened to it twice so far. I like it, though it seems a little rough around the edges like any debut. I think it's interesting how young Claudio sounds on this one.

It has a flawless first 5 song run, then kinda starts to lack consistence after it. But it's still amazing for a debut.

I'd lost interest in these guys for the last number of years, after More Than You Think You Are, which I didn't really like at all.

I found out last week that they'd released an album in 2012, so decided to give it a go. Sounds ok so far..

Basal Ganglia is such a stellar album. I'm not into instrumental music much, but AAL and Mestis just does it for me for some reason. The name kinda pisses me off though, my anatomy exam is close.  :lol

Incredibly, Stupidly good Coheed albums. If I ever get around to doing a top 50 albums thread I think a good portion of the top 20 will be Coheed and Cambria's backcatalogue. Good Apollo 1 just floors me everytime. Those albums will only get better and grow on you. I personally love Good Apollo 2 just as much but I know that's generally not the view of most fans.

Well, for the first time in probably 10 years, I'm listening a lot to the band that used to be my very first favorite band.  Styx, The grand illusion, I'm playing it over and over, by heart I know all the lyrics.  At the same time I'm revisiting everything they have done, even the worst of it! 

The Grand illusion is probably the reason I started to take classes and learn to play guitar.  I loved everything about the band, the ballads, the heavier stuff, the harmonies of the vocals and of course, so many great songs.  Saw them 4 times in concert, I was in their fan club, you know, when we used to write and receive letters by mail.  Soon my bedroom would be covered of Styx pictures along with Rush, Boston and many others.

these are what are going through my musical rotation rn and i'm pretty stoked about all of these, because they're all quite good

followup on all of these:
Anciients - i do like this a lot but i feel like i'm not digging it quite as much as i could be. i also feel like it still deserves plenty more spins and i'm excited to listen to it again when i do, though, so...
Canvas Solaris - i just like how atmospheric this tends to be for an instrumental prog metal album. i'd like it more if not for some of the dopey synth sounds at times though. not amazing, but pretty solid for sure
Cult of Luna - ooohh yeah. gimme more of this. i definitely need to check out salvation. this isn't the best post-metal i've heard, i still don't think i'd prefer it over panopticon for one, but it's pretty good. last track drags a little tho.
Earthside - this album kind of lacks depth and it's pretty immediate, but everything is pretty dang memorable and the orchestra adds a lot of bombast and power to the tracks it appears on, but the fake-strings on the rest are still pretty strong too. i like this as a whole for sure.
Exotic Animal Petting Zoo - man. this is a tough nut to crack. i feel like these guys are a lot better at writing the non-metal parts of their sound, really. the stretch from tracks 7-9 is a bit unmemorable tho, i have no clue what any of those sound like atm. i like this though, yeah
Irepress - also a pretty tough nut, but in a different way. there's a lot of creativity and solid music on display here but i find myself grabbed by very little of it, yet random moments of this album get stuck in my head pretty often. the sample on fletchie was a mistake, tho, i hate that
Nadja - this is... solid. i'm kinda getting the feeling that drone metal will stay as the kind of music i like was background music but can never get overly into on its own, this is nice and crushing and i enjoy it but not like, a ton
Thy Catafalque - this is like, surprisingly normal compared to their earlier albums, when i think about it, but it's pretty cohesive and probably the most fun black metal's ever sounded. nice amount of variety here too. can't wait to dig into their earlier albums.

also, what i've put into the rotation for this week:
(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/517QrAduDsL.jpg)(http://www.radiometal.com/images/posts/2010/01/ihsahninterview1.jpg)(http://www.musicfearsatan.com/DSK/jesu_st_(big).jpg)(http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/71xa%2BVKaTuL._SL1200_.jpg)
a little less enthused about this set in general but they're all pretty solid. ihsahn album needs a lot more listens than the rest of these, i think  :lol

First listen to the two Coheed albums. I found IKSoSE:3 to be really good and FFTtEoM to be monumental.

The Willing Well suite has got to be my favourite 30 minutes of music ever.

If this had better production (especially the drums) this would be bloody fantastic. It's still good music, just hard to listen to at times because the bad drum sound hits me in the face and distracts me a lot. The Roots album is much better sounding.

Somewhere Along the Highway and Salvation are definitely their best albums! As much as I liked Vertikal, I would probably say it's their second weakest album with only the debut being weaker. I prefer all the other albums actually.

Opacities being the first taste I really got of SikTh, it wasn't nearly as weird/crazy as people made this band out to be, but listening to The Trees Are Dead & Dried Out Wait For Something Wild I take back my words. Good stuff though. Maybe this is my descent into insanity?

I'm convinced that God Is An Astronaut is the perfect background music, I can thoroughly enjoy the albums without actively focusing on it, it's the best thing ever. Slowly becoming one of my favorite bands too right now. :tup 425

(bottom right) been speaking to this guy that released his debut solo album, fully recorded and mixed by himself. It's kind of an avant-garde/jazz fusion type of sound, I think he said he was influenced by Kayo Dot and Miles Davis among others but I'm not really familiar with their music so I wouldn't know for sure.

the followup chapters:

Dysrhythmia: tbh I wasn't super hyped for this anyways and yeeeah it's kind of... really boring and lifeless. the instrumentation is way too bare and the compositions feel like barely-structured jams that never go anywhere. pretty mediocre/maybe a bit bad lol oh well
Ihsahn: damn, saxophone makes everything better. but i actually like this quite a bit, most likely the only of these i'll really keep listening to
Jesu: this is. so long. and so tedious. every track is too long. the album as a whole is too long. it's not even that crushingly heavy, it tries to be i guess but. meh. it still sounds alright overall but it's a slog to listen through
Speaking to Stones: these are like, 5 good 6-8 prog metal songs stretched out to 9-14 minutes. the two longest ones especially feel too long, repeating their choruses and main riffs a bit too much, and the soloing on this album is pretty generally dire. but overall it's passable enough

added to the rotation this week:

If I knew how to write, I'd write something like this. Feels really poetic, great lyrics. Also, it really remind me od Arcade Fire's Funeral. Not that it is similar in terms of music, but overall feel is familiar.

Been listening to tons of Aura lately. I'm starting to get over the terrible drum production and am finally able to really enjoy the music for what it is.
Babymetal is disappointing to me as an album. I mean, Megitsune is one of the best metal tracks ever and Gimme Chocolate! is alright, but the rest borders on bland and outright bad.

No idea whether you like Deftones or not, but their new release is pretty good.

Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Parama on June 04, 2016, 06:15:55 PM
never looked into deftones but i guess i'll check out a song or two
avantasia is power metal stuff so ehh  :P

what i've been checking out
vektor - terminal redux: dunno if this is hugely my thing but i listened to about half of it and found it enjoyable enough. thrash metal's never been my thing tho. i'll prob get this.
ihsahn - arktis: this is pretty solid. i won't really know for sure until it listen to it more though, which i will, as i am getting this
king gizzard something - nonagon infinity: yeah, not really my thing. pretty repetitive-sounding to me too. o well a friend suggested this anyways else i'd never have checked it out

Here's a list of excellent releases. Don't blame me if I make a huge dent in your wallet.   ;)

Big Big Train - Folklore
Drifting Sun - Safe Asylum
Lee Abraham - The Seasons Turn
Haken - Affinity
Ihsahn - Arktis (tech/extreme metal)
Vespero - Lique Mekwas (space prog) The only thing I like better than this in 2016 is the new Haken.

If you want some more information about any of these bands, go to ProgArchives.com

Post by: Parama on June 04, 2016, 07:09:56 PM
already checked out the two metal ones there but i'll look into the rest a little i guess  :lol

mandroid echostar - coral throne: i like this a lot more than i did a month ago when i tried to listen to it. maybe not a top priority but i'll prob pick it up
schammasch - triangle: so umm, holy crap. this is awesome. it's like if swallow the sun songs from the north was more interesting and didn't have a really cruddy third disc

side-note: i'm listening to less than half of each of these albums, either like the first 20-25 minutes or in the case of schammash like 15 minutes of each disc so these aren't even full opinions i just don't have time  :lol
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Sacul on June 04, 2016, 07:19:50 PM
schammasch - triangle
My avant-friend loved it. But his fav metal album of 2016 is the new Slice the Cake :P

Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Parama on June 04, 2016, 08:03:34 PM
moonsorrow - jun whatever: yeah, this is pretty cool. halfway through the second track was a bit i really dug. not like that special but, enjoyable
headspace - atyfig: ehh. this doesn't feel like it even has the emotional potency of their first album, or at least not from the few tracks i listened to. dunno. probably will pass on this.
borknagar - winter thrice: this is okay. i dunno. i've heard enough proggy black metal by this point that this is just pretty unremarkable in comparison, at least on first listen, but it sounds alright enough at least. just not that compelling. i may need to take a break though since i also worry i might just be burnt out by this point, this and headspace were both fine and prob on the same level as mandroid but i'm more tired now so

Definitely a theatrical, conceptual power/prog metal day! Epica/The Black Halo remains an amazing concept, I'm really getting into SX with more listens on V, and it seems like each time I listen to The Great Escape, more of it clicks. Last time it was Wiseman, which I'm absolutely loving now. This time, The Angelmaker really clicked, and King of Whitewater is close. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I think Tommy has a novel approach to writing vocal melodies, and I really enjoy his melodies because of that.

Post by: Parama on June 04, 2016, 11:44:32 PM
Fallujah - Dreamless: from what I listened to I dig this quite a bit. don't listen to enough death metal type stuff
Eight Bells - Landless: this is a pretty interesting style of post-metal, they do a lot with their songs and the female vocals give it loads of flavor on their own. i like it.

Most of my favorite 2016 releases haven't been metal but there's some good shit out there for sure

Glad you finally came to your senses on the Mandroid Echostar album, that was the first that came to mind.

Furthermore:

Lacuna Coil - Delirium
Slice The Cake - Odyssey To The West (this was probably the biggest grower but one of my favorites now)
Deftones - Gore
Novembre - URSA (this is more like doom, but has its metal moments for sure too)
Avatar - Feathers & Flesh
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Parama on June 05, 2016, 12:53:40 AM
i'll check out deftones i guess because it seems mildly popular and slice the cake might be alright but i tend to dislike deathcore
but i ain't touching lacuna coil with a 10 foot pole lol, even aside from not being a fan of the band to begin with i have heard nothing but bad things about the album
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Train of Naught on June 05, 2016, 01:03:35 AM
I can't stand the older STC albums either but this one is really more balanced out, it has a lot of cleans, though they're more like storytelling than actually singing, but it just works.

Didn't know Lacuna Coil was being received so negatively :lol I went into it blindly and liked it. You probably won't like Deftones either to be honest but it's my favorite album of 2016 so far so I thought I'd back up jake here.

Oh and I totally forgot about Pacific Myth EP since it was a digital download ofcourse, but that's great aswell and technically got fully released in 2016. Harbinger, Cold Water and Caravan in particular.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Parama on June 05, 2016, 01:08:20 AM
i'm not getting pacific myth until they put it on a physical disc as an album that i can have delivered to me
and not just an EP, put them all on an album
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Parama on June 05, 2016, 01:30:14 AM
one more for tonight i'll finish up what i have to look at tomorrow

big big train - folklore: this feels like it has a bit more unique flavor to it than the english electric albums, which were solid but kind of unmemorable. though i can't say this does much for me, but it's alright? ehh
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Zantera on June 05, 2016, 02:13:43 AM
The best metal release of 2016 so far IMO is Vektor - Terminal Redux which is simply amazeballs. Blackened Progressive Thrash and an album that will just pound you. After that, I'd say the new Cult of Luna and Julie Christmas collab Mariner is really good, and other great metal albums are: Cobalt - Slow Forever (Sludge/Black Metal) and the latest Deftones.

Yeah, the M T Eyes is one of those lost classics. It's ok, nothing great tbh.

The Jorn is ok for what it is but won't be hurrying to play it again. I liked tha Hotal California cover. Gave it more of that satanic feel it was accused of having in the first place.

vespero - lique mekwas: okay but not really my things, tbh i forgot what this sounds liek already
avantasia - ghostlights: also not my thing, also it sounds like they have a lot of better albums anyways so ehh
slice the cake - odyssey to the west: this is fine but, not really like doing a ton for me? it's alright enough on first listen. death metal continues to not really be my thing. some alright stuff here though, i might look into it further; oh wait this is mp3 only, crap  :lol

Odyssey To The West is a toughie, the deathcore is still very present and it's not something I'm all that used to. However they've becoming much more diverse on this album and the vocals are just something I've gotten used to now. The deathcore vocals aren't layered with countless blastbeats or anything, it's pretty proggy throughout.

And Gareth's one hell of a narrator, I always listen to it with the pdf file of the story opened and it's become a real experience instead of an album. Probably my #3 AOTY right now.

Had a few days off, so I ended up covering quite a bit of ground. That new Riverside album is borderline perfect. Album with all the sculptures and the blue background is Yeasayer's Amen + Goodbye and the last one with the owl is My Morning Jacket's Z.

I never liked RHCP much (Under The Bridge drove me bonkers ........played every second song all day on college radio) but I was a fan of their cover of Higher Ground.  Can't remember much about the rest of the album but I did like that more guitar heavy approach.

followup:
canvas solaris: don't think I care for this as much as the atomized dream. dunno. feels messier and less refined, and the epic is pretty lame tbh
mouth of the architect: solid post metal and there's some cool moments and riffs but I don't feel too strongly about it, at least not yet.
the ocean: inferior to pelagial but that's not saying much. still quite good, though the middle is a bit weak, but the last three tracks are great especially
thy catafalque: I like this, a lot, but the structure is really confusing and hinders the album. having the two long tracks at the start makes everything after feel like an afterthought even if it's all good too. blah. I like this a lot regardless and will still keep spinning it so

Absolutely. I mean, if you take songs on their own, they're quite great too... but the album really shines when taken as a whole. After four years, it's still fresh and amazing.

I think there are definitely some very good individual songs on there, but I also think it's one of those where the whole is greater than the sum of parts. Like SFAM. Finally Free and All A Man Can Do are both quite good on their own, but they're just better coming at the end of their whole albums.

You should; it's a good one. Definitely not Paramacore, though.

Jazz is one of those genres I kinda scoffed at for years, but slowly got into, and now I really like it. Especially Miles Davis and Bohren helped me get into the genre, but it was Kamasi Washington's The Epic that really got me hooked. I still have plenty to check out in the genre, and I will probably never be an expert, but I like the genre now to the extent where I can put on a jazz album and really enjoy it. Apart from Sunset Mission, their album Black Earth is really good.

This is such a pristine album. One of the best heavy metal production jobs, and just solid songwriting all the way through. It's not as adventurous, progressive or experimental as the albums before or after, and I think it's a good thing they never tried to remake it, because I don't think this album would have worked twice. But this album absolutely captures a band at the top of their game just writing good songs and taking over the world.

Never heard of Morimoto Tim but Matsumoto is probably Japan's most famous guitarist.    I am surprised how much I have enjoyed what is , for the most part , a very laid back bluesy instrumental album.  Aside from the most blatant rip off of Gary Moore's Still Got The Blues melody.......couldn't believe my ears.  :-\

Yeah. The Black Album is okay, there are some really good songs but some are just I don't know... meh. But I feel that way about almost every Metallica album since I'm not that big of a fan.
I still think Polaris is the worst TesseracT album by far, but Hexes/Tourniquet/Cages are such gems. Wish they'd bring back the style of "One" though, although that will probably never happen.

You know, I was wondering why that name was so familiar. I knew I had heard a goth band of that name many years ago. I've always been a fan of goth rock. I assumed this was just another band with that name and didn't realize they actually got back together.

Well I made it all the way through The Apologist, so that's a good sign. Wouldn't say I liked it much but it wasn't 0/10 material. I kept it on Spotify and chances are I'll never listen to it again, but I might.

Skyforger is actually one of my favourite albums from what I received in my first roulette, I've been listening to it a lot.

I picked up the new Avatar album Flesh & Feathers. It's a concept album based on a fable the band wrote, and I just can't get enough of this album right now!!

For those who appreciate shred guitar playing, here's the opening track(s) of the record:

One of the coolest metal albums I've heard so far this year. I'm all over the place nowadays in my musical preferences and I'm not as easily impressed with loud metal music as I used to be, but this is awesome and it's a mix of various genres. Wether it's tastefully assembled is up to anyone, but I'm very much enjoying this stuff. It's a mix of doom metal, Opeth-y death and proggyness and of course the female vocalist who almost sounds like Beyonce at times. I dig it.

a classic high-quality followup post:

burst: this is fine, and it comes into view is quite great, but the harsh vocals here really hurt this album for me, they're just not very good. this definitely still needs more listens before i have a solid opinion on it tho.
leprous: i don't know how to feel about this album. it feels like the last four tracks, while all fine, just don't really matter. the album kind of runs out of steam. i'm also not really that crazy about any of the other songs. legit think the first 20 seconds of the album are my favorite part. not seeing the brilliance here, but i still like it a  fair bit overall, just not nearly as much as the congregation
nadja: i'm actually surprised, i like this quite a lot. nice crushing heaviness and i actually like the 30 minute drone track too. except for the very end. but yeah, as far as "good background music" goes this is enjoyable. not great active listening though, for how drawn out it is, but
vanden plas: a bit samey overall but i do like this. godmaker and inside are prob my favorites at this point in time but there's a fair number of cool riffs and instrumental moments throughout. not huge on the vocals but they're fine. i really question the decision to have tracks 4 and 5 both be ballad tracks, even if 4 is just a short pre-echo of a later track.

added to the rotation this week:

This is a beautiful album, and I don't even particularly like trip hop. I went to see Massive Attack with my girlfriend earlier this year as she's a big fan. They put on a good performance with a pretty incredible light show, but I prefer Portishead WAY more.

Totally agree with this!! Love the beginning of the album. Although I probably like the rest a lot more than you though. Can't compare it to The Congregation though as I've still not gotten around to it.

What are the early returns on a rating for the FW Brent?

I can't speak for Brent, but personally speaking, Theory of Flight is a 9.5 or higher. I'm really leaning towards the perfect 10/10 myself, but I'm going to withhold that score until I have a bit more time to digest the album. That said, there really aren't any weak tracks on the album and five or six of the eight tracks are all strong enough to become future classics from the band and staples in their live shows.

What are the early returns on a rating for the FW Brent?

I had forgotten how much I loved FW back in the 90s :)   The teaser releases really revived my interest with the nice combo of melody and heaviness.

The album requires more than the one full listen I have given it so far (some tracks are immediate , others not so much) - at this point I am not thinking top 2 in their discog but not far off.  As far as a rating goes , a starting point would be around 85% and we'll see how much higher I end up giving it.

As a comparison I was straight up into the 90's with SX's Underworld , so it'll need to grow on me a bit to beat that (not that it's 2016 , but a recent release from one of the "big boys")

I just think it's great that a band of this vintage is putting out music that is interesting , original and this good.    It's great having FW, SX and the 'Ryche firing like this.

Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: jjrock88 on June 22, 2016, 09:36:20 PM
Thanks MG and Brent!

Yeah I'm excited for this release and it is great having SX, QR and Fates firing on all cylinders. I really enjoyed Darkness and this sounds like a major upgrade from that, so this can't disappoint

follow-up:

baroness - this is a bit of an oddball in the baroness discography, its their only album that feels more album-oriented than song-oriented. there's like 7 full songs out of 12 tracks lol. but then a lot of those tracks are great tracks. jake leg and the gnashing especially, like hot damn.
canvas solaris - i was actually surprised, i figured it would be weaker than cortical tectonics but, no, i like this around as much as the atomized dream, maybe even more. the weird folky track is cool, and the two long tracks are great as well, especially the jazzy motif of the closer
jesu - i like this more than their debut mostly on the basis of it being shorter and not having a bad track like man/woman. it's fine. dunno if it's that memorable but it's pleasant.
thy catafalque - this is probably my least favorite of the three thy catafalque albums i have and neath waters is definitely a weaker epic but it's still pretty good overall. the opener especially is really vicious, and i like the idm flavor of the third track, and the doom metal fifth track, and the somber closer... yeah, it's still really good, just not as good

added to the rotation this week:

First time listening to Thank You Scientist. Really awesome album, I liked it a whole lot. Already planning to get their new one right when it comes out.

With Death Magnetic, trying the Mastered for iTunes version on Kotow's suggestion. Definitely worth it. I still definitely have a soft spot for this album. It's not their best album, but I'd rate it ahead of at least KEA, MOP, RL and SA. I think some of the songs just don't feel as lively as they could at times (That Was Just Your Life), but when they're on, they're as good as they've ever been. I think maybe the album starts slowly, and doesn't really get to full steam until Broken, Beat & Scarred. I like the first two, especially The End of the Line, but for some reason they just don't feel as energetic as others.

And to just throw more gasoline on the fire I may have started by saying I put DM ahead of MOP, I think Het's vocals on this sound better than they do on most songs of the 80s albums.

Asphalt Ballet...I used to listen to the hell out of them.

Murderer's Row..That looks like LaBrie on the left, Halford on the right, Johnny Lee Middleton in front, Bobby Blitz sitting behind him, and Bo Bice way in the back. I'm guessing that band is none of those people.  :lol

That's right, none of the above!
David Glenn Eisley from Giuffria, Bob Kulick on guitar, couple of blokes from Alcatrazz and the drummer from Hurricane. Decent hard rock album.

And the Asphalt ballet is very good.

And Train of Naught  :biggrin: I'm sure Europe will be glad to see the back of us. All we ever do is moan about the EU and object to everything  :biggrin:

The packaging is really cool. I got the cd/blu ray (partly because that was all Best Buy had) and it comes in this little mini gatefold package. Each of the discs have their own jacket with pictures on them, and when you open up the gatefold there's this little pop up in the center of a live shot of the band. It's a neat little concept, though I imagine it looks a lot cooler on the vinyl copies. And the booklet is like 30 pages of just pictures. It's a really nice product.

Love the epic tunes on the ManOwaR.

yes, that's the same band.  It was released in 2006 after a 16 year hiatus.

And you say it's a good album? I may have to give it a spin.

I thought about half the songs were very good, the other half were average to good.  Overall it was really strong.  Had a Primal Fear vibe to it.

follow-up zone:
ihsahn - on a song-by-song basis these are all pretty great tracks, but am i the only one who thinks that as an album this is just incredibly incohesive? i still like it, just... yeah.
schammasch - okay it's kind of hard to get into this but I think i love it??? disc 1 a bit less than the other two but really this is all cool stuff that needs way more listens, i think
toothgrinder - didn't quite get into this right away but it's actually a pretty good album now that i have. a few weak tracks but every track is so short and focused that one or two weak tracks doesn't bring things down much

the cavern is really cool, i really like this style. tbh it kind of reminds me of east of the wall to some extent so that could be why tho
their upcoming album is solid too, kind of way more sludgy and slower but i'll probably get it anyways. especially since that album art is fantastic wow

Hey Hath, I was checking out that Fate album. Is Hank Shermann still part of it. Is that the same singer? I see what you mean about sounding a little like Primal Fear. It's not a bod album.




Currently listening to Blaze Bayley-Infinite Entanglement.
I love his passion.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Big Hath on July 05, 2016, 08:36:05 AM
no, I think Shermann was only on their earlier albums.

Per Johansson is the vocalist on V.  He joined right at tail end of their first incarnation and was only on the 1990 album before the break.  As far as I know those are the only two Fate albums he appears on.

I may know little to nothing about jazz, but these guys are just awesome. Fantastic mix of originals and covers of modern classics, like James Blake's Limit to Your Love (yes, this is a cover of his cover). Excellent stuff.

the mystery of the followup:

thy catafalque - i don't see how people are saying this is just them doing the same thing. the playful electronics that categorized the previous two albums are all but gone here, there's a real cinematic feel to this album and i love it. the few repeated motifs, the palindromic structure, the wonderful opener and closer and the two adventurous, metal-focused epics. this is probably not their best but i still like it a lot. all four of the albums i have from them are pretty great tho.

added to the rotation this week:

Pendragon - Passion

I must admit that it's taken me longer to get into this Pendragon album than the other four I own. The only passage that gripped me instantly on first listen (about a year ago) was the awesome driving instrumental at the end of This Green and Pleasant Land. The album is definitely growing on me though.

Opposites is fantastic.  The songs Opposite and Spanish Radio are beautiful.

On this new album - every other song is a ballad and they all sound as corny

as "Pocket" from Opposites.

The song "Medicine" is good but it just sounds too much like

"God and Satan" from Only Revolutions.

Wolves of Winter & Animal Style are good. Probably why they were singles.

Rest of the album is really meh.

i'm sure this is one album i'll need to warm up to at least a little, but.
damned if it isn't still pretty cool on first listen. definitely unique territory for me, though it's a bit long clearly. i shall see.

Also first time listening to Steven Wilson. Wonder if I'll appreciate this music.

Yea, I rarely listen to it either to be honest. I really have to be in the mood. I was listening due to a certain themed roulette round as it fits quite well :lol

Also, as a rule of thumb, listen to any album that H.R.Giger created the album art for as he's got an incredibly good track record with this shit!!

How do you know Zappa dominated your adolescence? You haven't listened to anything by him for more than a year (closer to two years, in fact) an the album in question in nearly five years all right, yet song titles automatically jump up in your head (Wind Up Workin' in a Gas Station, Black Napkins, The Torture Never Stops, Find Her Finer, Wonderful Wino, Disco Boy...)

i follow, you up

amadeus awad: i think after the first few listens i pretty much decided "the first track and the last two tracks are great and the rest is fine but a bit unmemorable". but yeah, that's over half the album that i like a lot, so
slice the cake: i find myself not being as big a fan of all the heavier metal parts of this and would definitely have liked an hour-long version of this album with some of the fat trimmed, but there's a ton of cool moments and i really like all the spoken word stuff here, oddly, it's cool

added to the rotation this week:
john cage - 4'33"

i've been listening to albums that just arrived this week though, still 2 more in the mail, i'll add stuff to the rotation next week tbh

What do you think of the Blaze Kade?

I thought it was interesting. He's turning into a Heavy Metal Meatloaf!
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: wolfking on July 15, 2016, 04:23:47 PM
Only just got it, so I'm pretty late, but I've heard a few tracks prior and this is my first full listen and I actually think it's really good.  The production lets it down, could be heavier and Blaze is way too loud, but it's good honest no frills heavy metal.

The songs are well written yet simple but catchy.  Love the Meat Loaf reference, but it's kind of true.  His vocals are passionate and you can't fault the man for his effort and desire.  Only up to Calling You Home, but liking everything here.

this is just like, going down the list of things i like in music and checking the majority of them.
great, sludgy riffs? ooh yea
some chaotic proggy nonsense that feels controlled and interesting? yeah baby
a nice guitar solo that builds well? mmm
some beautiful moments and violin just 'cause? yuh.
all in a nice, tight 45-minute single-song package.
just throw in some atmospheric electronic moments and it'd be perfect
but yeah that wouldn't fit the style of this at all don't do that

I quite like Billy Talent, saw them live a few weeks back, but I feel like this is a really average album even for their standards. It's basically the same style and formula they've used on every album up till now, and tbh only like two tracks stood out as memorable to me and really made me pay attention. I play to give it more listens, but it didn't leave a good first impression.

their sound is kind of gimmicky, but i think it works well enough. not sure this is great, but it's interesting enough for me to want to check out
disclaimer: only listened to 20 minutes or so of it tho

i'm not like, huge on this on first listen but it seems interesting? they basically do whatever they feel like apparently, so i could probably go and listen to all of this, but i won't yet

I really love the whole album, it is quite different to their other albums but the first four will always be solid gold in my opinion. I love listening through albums 1-4, or even better, watching the Neverender DVD where they played the first 4 albums over 4 consecutive nights, would LOVE it if they did that again.

i feel like doing this because this is one of those weird concepts that intrigues me but also i might hate. so yeah just listening to the one-track-each short version
black: heavy electronic style, this is okay but not a huge fan.
red: this is literally a coheed and cambria song with lower-pitched vocals. feels a bit bland.
orange: hello, stone temple pilots? that's what it sounds like to me at least. except that cool jam at the end. solid.
yellow: ahh, indie rock, my "favorite" genre. fine, but i've heard this song before a hundred times.
green: ahh, indie folk, my other "favorite" genre. fine, but i've heard this song before a hundred times.
blue: this is probably my favorite of all of these so far, even though it's not really anything special
indigo: this is paramawave or something, i rlly like this sound. then it gets more upbeat and i still like it.
violet: this sounds exactly like a TDH song. i guess the band is violet by default.
white: yeah, this is like, radio pop rock. but it's ok?

wow, this is like really disappointing. the band is showing less diversity here than any of the 20 minutes of album i listened to. i mean i listened to one song off each which is "probably not enough" but w/e

Why not, good listening on a Saturday night.

@Parama, I was pretty underwhelmed by Acts I-III and the Colour Spectrum when I first heard them (all within 6 months before Act IV dropped). Act IV helped me appreciate the band more. I think all their albums are growers and in my experience growers definitely have more staying power.

Been a fan since the first SB & Barrage album. I love that album and the two I played yesterday but not so much the newer stuff. And it's sunny day music and living in the north west of england we don't have too many of those days!

This is the only one I have, got it not too long ago, but really impressed by it.  Only got it cause of Mularoni who's a beast.  The new one I posted is really good.  I'll have to still check out the last couple though.

I was pretty much burned out by all this new music after my roulette ended, but now I'm starting to check out some of the music I've got there. Both Redemption and Sieges Even albums are the ones I've got songs from, for DGM I decided to go with the new one since I have it available anyway; I also want to revisit Pariah's Child (since they're going to release a new album pretty soon) and see how my opinion of it changed after a year of not-listening to it.

Also, most of the people who participated in my v2 roulette can expect a PM from me some time during the upcoming week.

The Art of Navigating by the Stars - this is quite possibly a Top 10 album for me. The Weight and The Lonely Views of Condors are obviously two standout tracks but Lighthouse hits me in the feels every fucking time.

Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5
Post by: Evermind on July 23, 2016, 03:33:29 PM
Phew, finished listening to all four albums.

Redemption - my favourite of the bunch and just an amazing album it seems, definitely going into my rotation. A lot to take in on the first listen, but I remember I really enjoyed Peel, Unformed and Keep Breathing. Obviously I knew Black and White World from the roulette and it's probably still my favourite track from the album. Love Kills Us All / Life in One Day will need more listens, I've heard a lot of good things about it but I don't think I could repeat any melody from it after one listen. Probably a grower.

DGM - well that's probably my well-known beef with Italian power metal talking, but I didn't find it really interesting or anything like that. There were some cool tracks - The Secret pt. 1, Ghost of Insanity (this one features Tom Englund on vocals and has that Evergrey vibe all around it, probably my favourite), and Daydreamer - and that's about it, other tracks were quite bland for me and I wanted to skip a few of them after a minute or two. Not a good sign for the album.

Sieges Even - this was also a lot to take in but I think I enjoyed every song. Great singer and I really like the acoustic guitar playing on the whole album. Very clean production too, just the kind of progressive rock I was looking to. This is definitely going in the rotation, I need to listen to it more. Favourite tracks so far were The Lonely Views of Condors (got this one in the roulette), Blue Wide Open and Lighthouse. While Snowfall on Judgment Day was my favourite from the bunch, I think this is the album I'm looking forward to spin again the most.

Sonata Arctica's Pariah Child - actually, the songwriting here is really good except for last two tracks which I mostly can't stand. What really brings the album down is the production, especially after the Sieges Even album where you could hear everything clearly. Here the production is just muddy. Still, some good tracks on this one - especially Blood which is easily Top 10 SA song for me. I think I'm a bit more pumped for their new album now.

Ruslan, that Redemption is easily my fav and I can't remember if it wasn't a top 50 album for me, it was a top 60, it's incredible.

The Sieges Even is fantastic too, but does need multiple listens, I found it a real grower, beautiful album though.

what i've been spinning this past week

cobalt: this is a cool sound in theory but there really is no reason the album needed to be this long. it waters down the entire experience, makes it hard for moments or songs to stand out or even be that memorable. maybe this just needs more spins tho
fallujah: my kneejerk reaction was to really love this but the issue that's popped up is that a lot of the more straightforward metal songs don't have much of an identity and i have trouble distinguishing them, but the sound as a whole is pretty cool
inter arma: yeah, this is the good stuff. the biggest issue i have is that the song does hold on that first heavy riff way too long, but that's like, the only issue i have with this at all tbh, otherwise it's pretty dang great

I've always disliked the singer's voice but I really want to give this band a real try because the title track is just out of this world.

Halfway through Redemption and holy shit is this album great or what?

I'll post my thoughts when I'll finish all these four albums.

All four are at least good, IMHO, but both the Redemption one and the Sieges Even one... Oooh...  :metal

It's quality , mellow , atmospheric , relaxing melodic rock.   So next time you're on the couch in your dressing gown with a nice red and some bikkies and cheese...... ;D

It's getting mostly great reviews (return to the glory of the debut etc....) but it's not in that class IMO.   The good thing is that they have their own signature , Celtic tinged sound in tact but to me it's all too "samey" and gets a bit old by the end.   Unfortunately the return of Vinny Burns hasn't added the edge that I had hoped for and the songwriting isn't at the same level as their early material.

Yet another recent release in the "good , not great" category and a score from me around 80%

I only have Out of the Silence and it's great but this is kind of how I feel about it.  Didn't know Vinny Burns was back on this one, I'll have a listen, but I doubt I'm in the mood for this laid back style at the moment.

Finally got around to giving this a listen. I liked it on first impressions. I found it easier to concentrate on the lyrics on this album with the less 'full on' sound. This is good as I've always liked the fact that they have lots of environmentally/socially conscious lyrics, this is something I feel I can relate to. I often have trouble concentrating on lyrics as my ear is usually drawn to the guitars more than anything.

Definitely a good first impression.

REALLY?? I found I was able to make out more lyrics than on any of their previous albums. Not saying I can make out everything but it's definitely clearer. I don't think it's just a slightly different vocal approach, I just think the music is less distracting. Really good stuff though. About to give it a second listen in a minute.

Indeed it is just a best of, but I only picked it up cause I saw it instore.  Pretty standard, but it's cool to listen to a collection once in a while.  Sounds pretty nice though.  The track list is solid enough but could fit a lot more songs in and has some obscure choices IMO.

The Denner/Shermann is on Spotify so I'm checking it out now. First song isn't too bad. I'm not a fan of the vocals, though. His voice is all over the place and is ruining what could be something really good.

Exactly. It's almost like some amateurish singer trying to find his place in the music. I like the music though; it's dark and heavy like Mercyful Fate.

I actually wish they got a singer quite a bit different with their own style from someone trying to do the King Diamond thing.  I know his voice is a bit different, but not really.  bah, I know what I mean.

Most people feel 'Dirt' is their best album.  Personally, I don't think you can beat 'Facelift'.  Killer tunes from beginning to end.  Just listened to an awesome podcast interview with Jerry Cantrell (Dean Delray's "Let There Be Talk").  I had to put the album on.

Listening to a podcast retrospective on this album yesterday had me yearning to hear some of these songs again.  I can remember waiting outside my college CD shop twenty-three years ago, waiting for 12:00 AM to come so they'd open their doors to their midnight madness sale for all of us to pick this up (along with another pretty good album that came out that day, Rush's 'Counterparts').

how is that?

I can't really review it from a classical music nut's perspective as , although I studied as a young'un , it hasn't stayed with me and I rarely listen to it.  And I am only half way through my first listen..........

Having said that I think it is very strong and really beautiful in parts , which is no small task given a cast of 100+ -  it's a mile better than anything Malmsteen has done in ages (from a neoclassical perspective) and it's right up there with any symphonic stuff I have heard in recent years.   If you want to pick it to pieces from a purist's point of view then I am sure it'll be easy as he has added vocals/lyrics (some of them rather lame but thankfully I take little notice of lyrics :lol) and the first track is an original that really has nothing to do with Vivaldi.

If the thought of a symphonic metal album loosely based around familiar themes from Vivaldi's FOur Seasons appeals then I expect that you will really enjoy it.  I was sceptical going in but am (so far) quite impressed and expect it to be up there in a few Best of 2016 lists..

Black Sabbath- The Eternal Idol

Fucking great album.

Was listening to the deluxe edition.  It is a great album and the Ray Gillen demos are awesome as well.

Relistened to Sieges Even and Marketa Irglova since I really liked those albums in my first listen, and I'm going to keep them in this upcoming week rotation; and also getting further into Redemption with The Origins of Ruin - damn, this one could be even better than Snowfall, love it so far.

The evening playlist is latest Evergrey and two TAC-influenced albums by Enbound and Dead Lord.

So many good tracks on The Origins on Ruin, wow. Bleed Me Dry, the sequence of Memory and the title track (which is just gorgeous), The Death of Faith and Reason and of course the closer. I'm blown away by how great both this one and Snowfall are. Incredible.

last week's greatest hits

beyond the bridge: this is actually quite good, especially the entire back half. the climax of struggle, pretty much all of the difference is human, both ballads are pretty great too and the instrumental is pretty strong, i wanna listen to this more
moonsorrow: not like, particularly unique in any way, just well-made folky black metal. have had a little trouble getting into this one tbh but i do enjoy it
thrice: i mean, gripes about the lyrics aside this is fine. it's fairly diverse though there are a few throwaway tracks, and it's still way better than muse's drones too, so

Listening to this right now. I definitely agree, this is a good one. I really like the second ballad, Where the Earth and Sky Meet, and of course a lot of these big climactic songs like Doorway to Salvation and All A Man Can Do.

So Speaking of this great album, I have a vacation story. It's no secret that I hate flying. So when we were going down the runway taking off in Boston, I had a slight panic attack. I quickly grabbed my iPod and the first thing I could think of to soothe me was Raising Fear. By the time the plane was in the air I was in full throttle Armored Saint. It completely calmed me down.
For take off for the flight home.. "Bow down here, cuz the Saint's Raising Fear!!" :metal

That's Music Complete by New Order, released in September 2015. I bought a copy soon after, and recently I've been playing it a lot. I haven't listened to much of the band's older output, and I'm no fan of electronic/dance music as well; but this album I find very addictive right now. Some really solid and beautiful rock songs ("Restless", "Nothing But Fool") and catchy electronic pieces ("Tutti Frutti", "Unlearn This Hatred"). It's also weak for many minutes, for sure, but still a fun listen.

Chaosbay's Vasilisa only has like 1000 to 2000 listens on Spotify but it's probably my favorite album discovery of the year, it's a German prog metal band and they sound like Steven Wilson gone metal, really cool. They claim it to be one 41-minute song divided into 8 tracks but there's some debate about that, doesn't sound like 1 song to me but the songs do share a TON of reprised themes and stuff, something I really like.

First is progressive rock with some jazz influences. Heard it first time yesterday and had to listen to both CDs, very good album.
Second band is not obscure here but check it if you don't know it. Pretty standard, melodic '90s prog metal, it's awesome.

*snip*

beyond the bridge: this is actually quite good, especially the entire back half. the climax of struggle, pretty much all of the difference is human, both ballads are pretty great too and the instrumental is pretty strong, i wanna listen to this more

Listening to this right now. I definitely agree, this is a good one. I really like the second ballad, Where the Earth and Sky Meet, and of course a lot of these big climactic songs like Doorway to Salvation and All A Man Can Do.

You guys inspired me to spin this one today, and damn, after four years this album just keeps getting better and better. It's so great it's unbelievable, really.

Still astounded I've lost 425's roulette because of All A Man Can Do.

Post by: 425 on August 03, 2016, 11:10:15 AM
Yeah, I gave that song an individual score of 8.5 which was the lowest score on an EP that earned a 19. In retrospect I could see a 19.5, maybe, but if I went back and redid the whole thing, a lot would have changed in retrospect.

Anyway I think this is a really good album so thanks Evermind! I'll try not to screw you over for a third time in my eventual v2. :P

Though I am now pretty sure I like them, I freely admit they are a bit hard to get to (and especially for me, since I was never that much into atmospheric/melancholic music). It really helps if you decide to like them and put an album or two on repeat, until you know it by heart  ;D

It's funny how you have to sometimes almost force yourself to like something. When I explain that to friends who don't 'get' my obsession over discovering music they just think I'm weird. I've got bands that I know I'll like but I know I need to put the time in. Riverside are only just starting to click for me after listening to them for about a year. I haven't forced myself with them though, I've just played them often knowing I'll get there eventually.

Yeah, my longest "forcing to like" was probably with Hogarth-era Marillion. Apart from maybe Tales from Topographic Oceans, Brave definitely must hold the record for "most listens and most years spent with it while I still don't know whether I like it or hate it".


I actually found Riverside quite easy to get into however, marred mostly by the fact I discovered them at the same time as Redemption, who are definitely closer to "my style", but I loved Anno Domini pretty much instantly.

None of the above  :lol Abbey Road is my favourite, Rubber Soul is probably #3, or Sgt. Pepper. The White album has some of my favourite all time Beatles songs (Blackbird  :heart) but also a lot of filler in my opinion.

I only got not them a few years ago, but I understand this was the album where their sound changed and went more progressive and complicated.

*No World for Tomorrow*

 :metal

Yep! Just got it last week. I actually went through all of Coheed's albums in story chronological order, even though that probably didn't matter because I don't understand a lot of what goes on in the story, so this completes my journey (I got TCBTS a while ago). I'd say it's a satisfying conclusion.

Nice sig, btw :P

bent knee: hhhmmm. no. i don't think i really care for this. most of the songs don't feel like songs, just strings of musical ideas loosely tied together. eve especially, which is just 10 minutes of nothing happening. i don't hate it or anything but i'm not getting much out of this yet, it's kind of a slog
eight bells: this is cool. i like the first song the most probably (that riff <3) but it's all pretty cool, a unique sound to it too. i wanna keep listening to it
vektor: i dunno yet. i feel like i am just scratching the surface of this one right now. my current thoughts are: first three tracks are cool, middle three are just okay, last three are great, but that's like a "i feel like i've only listened to this once or twice" opinion, this is a bit out of my comfort zone i guess  :lol

How would you rate the albums? I for one really didn't enjoy TCBTS at all.
Also I still don't undestand the story even though I've heard all of the albums many times.  :lol I'm not a fan of comics so I guess it wont happen.

Also I still don't undestand the story even though I've heard all of the albums many times.  :lol I'm not a fan of comics so I guess it wont happen.

I've pretty much figured out the Afterman story and much of the GA1 story with a lot of help from the internet, but everywhere else I'm pretty much lost.

I like The Color Before the Sun pretty well, actually! It's very non-proggy, but I thought it was a pretty good album of radio friendly stuff. Particularly like Colors, Here to Mars and Peace to the Mountain.

My album ranking would probably be (and keep in mind that I've heard GA2 and YotBR only twice each, while I've heard both Afterman albums a ton, so this is very subject to change):

1. In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3
2. Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness
3. The Afterman: Descension
4. The Afterman: Ascension
5. Good Apollo, I'm Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow
6. The Color Before the Sun
7. The Second Stage Turbine Blade
8. Year of the Black Rainbow

I really didn't find much to like at all in YOTBR. I need to listen to it more (especially since I like all their other albums), but it just seemed pretty bland compared to their other stuff. My overall disappointment with that album on the first two listens led me to get SSTB, IKSOSE:3 and GA1 more quickly than I originally planned, and that kind of left YOTBR sitting on the shelf.
Title: Re: What album are you listening to? v.5

IKS
NWFT
Descension

6. The Color Before the Sun
7. The Second Stage Turbine Blade
8. Year of the Black Rainbow

The story is all kinds of confusing and actually kind of dumb in places (and I'm saying that as a fan, C&C are my #3 band). Good Apollo 1 is where it starts to get really confusing and I don't even fully understand it. That's a pretty good ranking however I would always have the first 4 albums as my top 4. I don't mind TCBtS but it just doesn't have the depth of the other albums. It does what it says on the tin but I know in years to come it won't be one of the albums I come back to.

My ranking would be:

Second Stage Turbine
Year of the Black Rainbow
A: Descension
A: Ascension
Color Before the Sun

I like YotBR. It has some good ballads and some of my favourite individual songs. It's the last 3 songs that let the album down for me. They do zero for me!!

TCBTS

yeah, i'll admit that descension definitely drops off after gravity's union but that first 5 song run is awesome, and the last two tracks have their moments

GA1 i'd like more but it feels like it has more filler than the albums before or after it. who cares about always & never, crossing the frame, once upon your dead body, the lying lies, or mother may i

i certainly don't

This, basically. They don't live up to the first five, but I like all of the last four, especially 2's My Favorite 1, and those first five are so good that it makes up for it.


GA1 i'd like more but it feels like it has more filler than the albums before or after it. who cares about always & never, crossing the frame, once upon your dead body, the lying lies, or mother may i

I agree with this to a certain extent. I really like Always and Never quite a lot, but I agree that some of those are less excellent than IKSOSE:3 is all the way through. I put it second for The Willing Wells in particular, and I like a lot of the other songs, but I could easily put it behind Descension. IKS is pretty easily my favorite at this point.

But I don't quite get it with SSTB—isn't that an album that really drops off about halfway through?

Honestly can't believe they're already releasing Act V, and from the songs released so far it's looking to maybe even be just as good as Act IV.

I can't see myself getting tired of this album soon either, there are so many little subtile things in the background. The very organic sound makes this album so pleasurable to listen to top.

damn. the version i have is the 78 minute remaster too, which means i get subjected to insanity for about as much as they could fit on the disc.

i'm sure that, no matter what else it is, this will definitely be interesting to keep spinning. so goddamn much to take in and a unique, if maybe a bit gimmicky, sound

but i like it.

The first song I heard from The Dear Hunter was "Stuck On A Wire Out On A Fence" and I still think that it's a terrible track. But seeing this album so much on here I finally decided to give it a spin and must say that it's pretty damn good. I really like the musical-like approach, some songs sound like they could be on Sweeney Todd.
