I threw that electronic idea as a joke :lol but it's nice it became a sort of discussion. :)

More seriously, I wouldn't mind an electronic album if it was something darker. I'm not really a fan of electronic music, but there are some uses of it that have impressed me (e.g. Riverside - Hybrid Times outro, which is absolute genius). The Pineapple Thief also nicely combined electronic parts with very energetic and quite heavy riffs. If they go in that direction, I'll be very curious. But if it would be a "LET'S DISCO" album... fuck no. :lol

That would seriously be awesome.

Liberation

No... No... No... No. That sounds wrong on an infinite amount of levels.

I love Disco Queen. A whole album like that would probably be so good, as long as there was still enough variety!

For more thought in speculating about where they are going to go next, Daniel said that To the Shoreline and 1979 were the two songs on the album that were closest to the general direction that he wanted to go from here, or something to that effect.  Presumably that means that we might be getting even more of the folky sound next.  ..Which would be awesome, especially since those two songs are probably my favorites on the album. 

ariich

Those are my favourites, so that would be bloody amazing.

Those are both two of the strongest on the album, so that would be awesome.

MirzekDT

Healing Now, To The Shoreline and 1979 are my favorite songs on the album I would love if Daniel would go further into that direction on next album

My exact thoughts, it's easily the best on the album for me.

Also, according to the lyric booklet its subtitle is "Into the Wild", which is cool

TheVoxyn

I really love Through the Distance. I don't know if it's my favourite but it's definitely up there.

Liberation

My favourite is definitely The Deeper Cut and second probably The Physics of Gridlock but not sure what's after them.

I really love The Deeper Cut, those songs weren't my only favorite songs I mentioned those specifically because they were mentioned in previous posts and they all resonate with me so much.

Anyway my favorite songs from RS2 in no particular order are these: Softly She Cries, Healing Now, To The Shoreline, 1979, Of Salt, The Deeper Cut, The Physics Of Gridlock

Then not the best but still awesome songs are: Road Salt Theme, Conditioned, Mortar Grind, Through The Distance, End Credits

And both remaining songs Eleven and Break Darling Break are still great but not as good as above

RS2 is really incredible album much better than RS1 (and I loved that one too) I will see how it will age but it has big potential to become my favorite POS album

BE looks good to me, but the others it seems a bit awkward to look at - especially TPE1.

So do people use any of them or not?

Zantera

I don't, except for on 12:5.
That album is the worst album to tag ever.

faemir

I think I might just have a custom id3 tag called chapter to keep it as a reference, then leave them in on 12:5 and BE (BE's look cool!)

edit: how many of the japanese bonus tracks do people have? I have the Remedy Lane one and it's...not very good.

Zantera

Thorn Clown?
Pretty good song from what I remember.

The problem with Remedy Lane for me, is that two instrumentals in a row really kills the flow, so the additional song really makes the flow better.

Liberation

I don't really consider the title track a proper instrumental, more like an interlude.

Zantera

When it's ~7 minutes instrumental without vocals on an album that has vocals, then it's way too long for my taste.
It also might explain my dislike for DT's latter half in their discography, seeing as the instrumental-sections on their albums became longer and longer (to me at least).

I don't have anything about instrumental music or so, Post-Rock is my favorite genre and it's in most cases instrumental, but as I said, on an album with vocals, it does kill the flow a bit with 7 instrumental minutes.
Nothing wrong with the songs, cause I do love Dryad of the Woods.  :heart

faemir

I guess I don't mind instrumentals if they are awesome like the title track, so it doesn't wreck the flow for me.

And Thorn Clown is between This Heart and Undertow I think, though there are conflicting reports. the mix on the sound felt weird (and bad), and it doesn't fit  the album at all. It's too heavy.

Zantera

"The Japanese edition of this album also contains a bonus track titled Thorn Clown (7:23) that fits in between " Dryad of the Woods" and "Remedy Lane"."

That's what I've heard everywhere tbh, but I mostly listen to the album as it is. :P

contest_sanity

I always found it interesting that a non-all-instrumental album would have two instrumentals back to back.  That seems pretty unique to me, as I can't think of any other albums with such an occurrence.

Nihil-Morari

Wow.


The limited edition of RS2 adds so much. The two extra tracks make it more of a second part album, instead of a follow up.

Lynxo


Perpetual Change

Holy shit.

I truly treasure the albums PoS made pre-Scarsick. Sad to see how much of that band is gone now...

TheVoxyn

:( Hallgren was so awesome... Especially in a live setting he was amazing.

NecessaryPain

Truly did not see that coming.

But the band has always been about Gildenlol. I'm sure they'll find a good replacement.

Nihil-Morari

Djees... Did not see this coming.


So, it's only Daniel and Frederik now? I guess Frederik will leave soon too, leaving only the DG project.
If he keeps making albums like RS2 I'm not complaining though.

Perpetual Change

Studio PoS has always more or less been a DG solo thing.

But, live, Johan brought so much character... and unless you saw it yourself or on DVD, you'd never know how instrumental he was into pulling off the live act. Similar to what Kristofer Gildenlow brought to the live performances... so much energy and character...

Now, both live and in studio, PoS is all about Daniel, all the time. Sad...

I saw them live, and you can see me on a dvd seeing them live too ;)
But yeah, live would be totally different now. Although I'm sure he'll pull a 'zappa' and get an awesome band around himself, to get him to play his music.

Zantera

Sad news. :(
I'm glad that he'll still be with them on the tour though, seeing as I'll be one of the last fans to see him live right before he quits.

Liberation

This is really, really not good... He definitely feels like part of the core of the band for me.

faemir

Argh! I love Johan :(

Never got to see them live with him either... well as long as they find a good replacement I'll be happy. The new drummer doesn't live up to the old one though he's still good enough.

petrucci07

This fucking SUCKS! So glad I bought that Opeth ticket now though

Algo Fonix

This really sucks. And I never got to see them live. Now I'll never get to see them with him.  :'(
