So I've listened to the album about uh, two or three times right now.
Currently having a hard time placing it, I has alot of influences from Undertow, ?nema and some stuff from Lateralus as well.
They all have their charm I guess, but there's just something about the songs that doesn't feel quite complete
. Repetitive guitar riffs get tiresome in the end, and the climax in the songs never really reaches that same level that you could get a kick out of listening to for example Aenima or The Grudge (read: AAAAAA~~~).
But it's a pretty good album never the less, I just have to listen in to it some more.
Tracklist are as follow:
01 - Vicarious [7:08]
02 - Jambi [7:30]
03 - Wings for Marie (part 1) [6:13]
04 - 10,000 days (Wings part 2) [11:15]
05 - The Pot [6:24]
06 - Lipan Conjuring [1:13]
07 - Lost Keys [3:48]
08 - Rosetta Stoned [11:13]
09 - Intension [7:23]
10 - Right in two [8:57]
11 - Viginti Tres [5:02]
So far, Vicarious is by far my favourite song, closely followed by Wings for Marie & 10,000 days (they're connected).
Did anyone else get a chance of listening to it yet?
PS: Release date is May 2nd.
