Don't listen to Parama's "unfortunately" - Malina is great, and the songs I saw live sounded *great* in a live setting. :)

oh and regarding tall poppy syndrome when i saw them they were selling the CD new for $20 which, uhh, was a "no" from me
dunno if they're still doing that though. i ended up getting a used copy from someone who didn't know what they had & sold it cheap in a box set with a bunch of other albums i didn't care about  :lol

The band re-released TPS last year in a digipak version, as well as on (coloured and black) vinyl.

Leprous barely plays anything from TPS and/or Bilateral live these days. Very occasionally they throw in a Bilateral song (I've been lucky to have seen Forced Entry, Restless, Bilateral, Mb. Indifferentia and Acquired Taste in recent years), but anything from TPS is basically off limits and very rare. In fact, the only song they've even played in the past 4 years was Passing - and they only did that twice.
Hey dude slow the fuck down so we can finish together at the same time.  :biggrin:

That's so cool that you're 61 and digging this kind of music, Mike.
Hey now, my dad is big into bands like DT, Haken and The Dear Hunter, and he turns 75 next week.

To add to this.. the re-release of TPS is not in the same packaging as the original CD. If you're a sucker for those kind of things, you'll have to find it used, which can be pretty hard. I know for sure that I'm not parting with mine; I've got TPS autographed by all the original band members that played on the album :biggrin:

I've worked behind the bar at lots of modern progmetal concerts last year and was pleasantly surprised by the amount of older people at those shows. They're usually the ones that just hang by the bar where they can lean against stuff and have conversations with you during the intermission when it's not too busy. :hefdaddy Sometimes it looks like they're not enjoying the music as much but I realize that I won't be jumping around and screaming my lungs out 40 years from now either :lol

22 just got confirmed for the Leprous / Agent Fresco tour :metal loved their last album, so I'm likely going to take a trip to Hanover to make it to this tour. Actually think it's a super interesting line-up as the night will progress from very happy/upbeat prog to super dramatic/dark. The one headlining Leprous show I saw was by far the best (saw them open for BTBAM/Devin Townsend once and a festival show last month), the others were great too but they have so many good songs that I feel disappointed they can't play a lot of them with shorter sets.

Ah that's one better than me.  :)  I have the original, but not autographed.  I did see them with that lineup however.

Mike, I would love to be wrong but don't expect anything from TPS.  If it happens, great, but they're really focused on the new stuff.

Yes, after going to a Opeth show last year, I was really surprised and disappointed they played nothing from Black Water Park, so with Leprous I will be disappointed, but not surprised if they play nothing from TPS or Bilateral.  I am going to really listen again to the last three by Leprous to see if it clicks.

Especially with the last three albums, it's a lot easier to enjoy them if you really like Einar's voice.  I feel like one could get into Talk Poppy Syndrome and Bilateral even if you weren't all that into the vocals.  Starting with Coal, it's such a main central focus of the songs.  Coal was also such a huge departure from Bilateral and that also made it hard for people to get into.  It took me a while for Coal, but I love Coal and the two that came after.

Forced Entry is afaic the coolest Leprous song and they did play it when I saw them. Liked the first couple of Coal tracks, like The Congregation as a whole. Cannot get into Malina except for the first two tracks. The strings part in Stuck is quite beautiful.

After some time after the album has come out, the central part from Captive to Coma has become the one that I like to listen more frequently.
Bonneville is another great song, but sometimes I don't play it to skip also Stuck and From The Flame. My least favorites are the first two singles and the last two tracks, but they are not bad songs by any means.

After a week of listening to TPS and Bilateral, TPS is my favorite by Leprous.  Now on to the last 3 albums to get prepared for the concert this fall.

Speaking of preparing for the concert this fall, here I am, a new Leprous fan.  I went on a music binge lately and got a bunch of albums for prog/power bands mostly for ProgPower next year to start listening to, but also I got Bilateral from Leprous since I figured I should check them out since I'll see them with Haken soon.  I am really liking this album.  The first couple songs weren't the greatest and then I felt like the album really opened up and started to excite me.  I'm on my 3rd listen today now, good stuff.  I'll have to get their newest after I digest this more.

For more than a year The Congregation was my favourite from them, but I think Bilateral is taking over now. Didn't really like it at first, but it's a grower for sure.

Bilateral is easily their best to me, which in the current state of the band is a shame as they rarely play stuff from that album nowadays (usually 1 or 2 songs per gig tops). The majority of the material will come from Malina and the Congregation, most likely.

Yeah, I'll be doing the same thing shortly. I'll probably just stick to the setlist, though. I checked out a few songs when they were in town a few months ago and didn't like it all that much. Since I'll be seeing Haken probably 3 times I'll give them another shot. Otherwise I might just plan on some added recreational time before the shows.

Yea, I'll typically just make a playlist on youtube or spotify of the setlist for bands I don't really know, but I figured this was often stated as their best so I should just check that out to get to know the band more.  Sucks if they don't play much from it, but I guess it makes sense since they have newer material and some shake up of band members it seems.

Bilateral ain't bad at all but Coal was the album that did it for me. Although it hasn't made me warm up to much else, I do think Coal is fantastic.

The bonus track "Bury" from Coal is one of my favorite songs by them.
