    it is one of the best songs. it's probably the best 'non vocal' song. it's got tons of emotion.

    It was for sure. I know the crowd you're mocking, though. And they're real... :p

    Shit's lame, I wouldn't discount anything as not being 'classic' Nevermore besides TOC. I don't find any of it out of place or forced enough to say it's not classic. It all rules. :kickass:

    so far for me, every track is good, except for the one with the guy singer. I skip that track, do not like his voice at all.

    i dunno, some instrumental stuff is just great and some bands would do much better without vocals than with (like dream theater, bar some albums) :p

    though contrary to the last album which worked pretty well instrumentally, this one's better songs are the ones with vocals. At least I like to think so :)

    When I was younger I used to really like Ihsahn's voice in Emperor. Now it isn't as chilling as it used to be. I don't like his solo band, either.

    I dig his solo band big time.

    I bought the album after reading a very distressing Tweet from Jeff that he cannot continue to afford Pantene's 2-step volumizing shampoo and the moisture balancing conditioner any longer.

    I was actually going to ask if not liking Emperor until the last two albums, but especially Ihsahn's solo works made me a poser; because I really like his solo albums. Although the sax is still annoying as fuck on many parts of After.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQ95g8uGlkI&feature=player_detailpage#t=234s favorite part on the album.

    @Deb; not sure what you mean by that. Leprous is amazing, but they are the people that play with him on tour, but they are still their own band too.

    Oh, I meant that they make an awesome backing band for Ihsahn but yeah also as a band in their own right. I've seen them live in both situations, and they blew me away with their performances. So much energy!
