It's not the easiest album to digest, but definitely worth the effort.
It just seems like there is endless, tasteless sweeping in all of their songs.
Endless, timeless, faceless sweeping.
Have you ever been in a situation where you were talking to people, and they took every single word you said to be trolling?
Ugh... Go back under your bridge, Troll!!!
I would, but my bridge is all the way over on Kamelot's forum, and they're lame over there.
Agreed. I don't know what's up with OSI - I know that both Jim and Kevin can do better.
Have you heard Kevin's Graveyard Mountain Home? It. is. incredible. One of my all-time favorites.
Easily a top 5 album of 2010. I wish I heard it then!
I hated that album.
But LOVE the one before it. Mute is proof of everything cliche and wrong with Prog, while Building An Empire is amazing.
I want to hear their first, for sure. I'm surprised you hate this album... I find nothing to hate about it. I don't consider it cliche prog at all. Hmmm...
there's NOTHING memorable about it. It just drones on and on with its little fiddly prog passages and pads, and meanders about like a mountain brook headed downstream.
Musically, Building an Empire is instead like standing downstream of a dam that just detonated. It's NOT metal, but the music has power, while Mute is pretty much what it is. "Oh damn, is it muted? Oh, it's not... coulda sworn..."
Just saw the video they made for that song and thought it was quite good. The song I mean, the video is just some mutant laying on his back.
I just read on Wikipedia that the new Circus Maximus album will be released on June 1. I figured that it'd be out sooner, but.....finally!
Their second album came out so quickly, and then....... nothing.
I hope they add a little maturity and sophistication to the 3rd album. I love their first 2, but I'm kinda changing style preferences, so I'd prefer less obvious prog, and more subtlety.
Now that I think about it, this is exactly how I felt after the first listen. My second listen was on the following day, and it just clicked for me. I loved it.
Fuck. First big let-down of the year. In Mourning - The Weight of the Oceans did not impress. I mean, it's not bad, but I had very high expectations.
It's a lot more proggy than their previous albums, maybe some folks here would like it.
I'll keep it in my playlist and see if it grows on me. Weirder things have happened.
I'll give it another chance, but I'm up to 3 full playthroughs now I think.
Is this relating to the discussion in the other thread? About peoples' opinions changing n stuff.
Lol, that video is ridiculous. Saw it yesterday. "Art" at it's finest.
The song definitely stands out from the rest of the album in a way so I'm not too surprised to see it as a video single. While it's still around their usual tempo and has a laid back vibe, it comes off a bit different from their typical style. Has this really lame "indie" feel to it that I'm not interested in hearing from OSI. Whatever. Hope it gets them more fans.
I like this forum a lot more than the last forum I was on. You guys are much smarter than they are.
