It's not about his old style vs. his new style, though. I LOVED his vocals on Solens Rotter, which only came out in 2007. That is, after Origin, The Astral Factor, and The Focusing Blur, all albums which I wasn't so big on, at least vocally. I thought his vocals on the new Fission were pretty good too. Which is also why I'm not whining "oh, Borknagar/Mr. V/the world is too different now and I hate it"- I'm confident there will be other releases in the future I'll like. I just don't like his singing so much on this one. Maybe I'll really like them on the next Vintersorg album. Maybe I won't, who knows? I'm not pining away for the glory days or whatever. I just didn't like this record as much as others, and in particular, the tone of the vocals.
