Dream the Electric Sleep - The Giants' Newground (2018)
« on: July 22, 2016, 08:47:40 AM »
The new album "Beneath the Dark Wide Sky" from Dream the Electric Sleep is released today.

It was produced by Nick Raskulinecz who produced the last couple Rush albums.

Having heard it only once, I'm already enjoying it. Very dense and layered, yet melodic and not excessive.

Anyone else heard it?

Yep, listened to it today. It was one of my most anticipated albums of the year and it didn't disappoint, not that I think it's fantastic yet but I really enjoyed it.

Good news. Their debut was far better than their second album, which was too poppy, indie. It was ok, but the first one is so much superior.

Absolutely one of the most underrated bands out there. Beneath The Dark Wide Sky was easily my favorite album of 2016 and I'm really looking forward to whatever they put out next. They straddle a fine line between prog, post-rock, and pop and they make it work so well.

yeah, although I wonder if this album coming in May not resemble as much of their sound as the 1 coming in 2019?

Well, if it was recorded 10 years ago they'll probably be very different which is not a problem for me. Listening to the new track, it does look like the production will be a bit off in this one, but I guess that's something we could expect.

I listened to it yesterday. I'm surprised that it sounds more like the last album and not the first two. My first reaction is that I kinda liked it but need some more listens to both let it sink in and see how it ages. I have the feeling that it may start to feel boring soon but I hope that's not the case.

I'm liking this a lot, but for me, there's not much this band can do that I don't like. There's so many songs that it's going to take a while to latch onto it and really absorb, but The Stage and The River Current are my early favorites. I'm glad they released this and while I have some vague doubts about it being a "lost album", I'm hoping they do in fact release something new next year.

Is that because of the sound quality or the fact that it resembles the last album more than the first 2? In any case, I think they re-recorded everything from that lost album which would account for both of the things I mentioned before.

Some more listens are making me like this album a lot more. This will probably end in the top 3 albums of the year
