Would of loved this version in the actual album (with Courtney singing in English). Still a cool version though.

I liked Fauna a lot when it came out. Listened to it again recently for the first time in a while and I just wasn’t feeling it.

The Mountain
Fauna
---------
Virus
Affinity
---------
Vector
Restoration
Visions
---------
Aquarius
Demo

Top 2 are pretty much neck and neck. The order of the rest feels pretty settled although there are still pretty clear tiers so I've presented them that way.

Ariich is a freak, or somehow has more hours in the day than everyone else.

I can only do tiers:

Affinity and The Mountain

Fauna, Aquarius, and Visions

Vector and Virus

Though Fauna is threating to at least break out into a new tier, if not join the top two.

Just an amazing album from start to finish! It absolutely deserves to be mentioned among the greatest Prog rock albums ever released

i agree, the musicianship on display here is absolutely top-notch. the way each instrument weaves in and out of the songs is nothing short of masterful. the guitar work is intricate and emotive, the bass lines are groovy and powerful, and the drumming is simply next level. the vocals, too, are out of this world. ross jennings' voice is incredibly versatile, going from gentle and melodic to intense and powerful in a heartbeat. his lyrics are thought-provoking and meaningful, adding an extra layer of depth to the music. each track on the mountain is a journey in itself. the way they seamlessly blend different musical styles, from progressive rock to metal to jazz fusion, is nothing short of genius. and the concept behind the album, exploring the themes of self-discovery and personal growth, adds an extra layer of depth to the music. it's one of those albums that you can listen to from start to finish and get lost in the story it tells. the production quality is also top-notch. every instrument is clear and well-balanced, and the mix allows you to hear all the intricate details in the music. it's clear that a lot of time and care went into the production of this album.

i also have to give a shoutout to the album artwork. it's stunning and captures the essence of the music perfectly.

It’s an all-time great, easily. Pareidolia is my favorite song of theirs, but can’t deny Falling Back to Earth is one of the best ever. And that’s not mentioning Cockroach King or any others… what an album

I would love to participate, but every time I check out one of the 'survivor' threads, I realize that I have no idea what's going on–anyone care to explain (in layman's terms bc I'm a bit old and slow these days) how it works?

Each round you vote for your least favourite song. The one with most votes gets eliminated. This continues until there's (usually) two left from that album round, those go to the finals. It depends on how the person running the survivor has set up the rules.

Do we know if they have recorded/filmed any of the shows on the Fauna tour for a possible live release?

That's where my head is at as well–a live 'anything' would be nice.

Hoping it's a live release from this tour.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Same. It's been three album tours since their last (and currently only) live album, and there's a lot of new material since then that I'd love to have immortalized in a live album. If so, I hope it encapsulates a majority, if not all of the songs they've played live on the Fauna tour!

AN EVENING WITH HAKEN 🎭

We're beyond excited to announce our first ever "An Evening with Haken" tour next year in North America! It's something we've been talking about and wanting to do for a while, and which we'll be hoping to take elsewhere too after this run. Given our growing discography it gets harder and harder each year to choose a setlist that covers everything we want and also pleases all of our fans. With the full evening to ourselves, we have the freedom to really dig deep into the back catalogue! You can expect Fauna in its entirety, and a whole lot of different Haken music old and new. So come and join us for "An Evening with Haken" in February and March 2024! 🐒

Tickets: hakenmusic.com/tour
