Fucking bitch. I don't actually physically own Themata. How do you know btw?

Having to wait for people to write them up on the internet is annoying.

My copy came today in the mail :D
They used to have the lyrics for Themata up on their website so maybe they'll do the same for this.

Nah, I'm buying the real deal on Friday anyway, so I might as well wait. Just superbly frustrating that no-one has thought about sticking up a youtube video, or lastfm hasn't updated it into it or whatever.

got a reminder in my snail-mail box telling me I had a parcel at the post office... I practically floated there, and lo and behold, my signed copy of 'sound awake'

it's truly spectacular. erases birds of tokyo's mediocre from memory.

Birds of Tokyo mediocre? I take it you haven't listened to the latter half of Universes.

I've pasted some of this from my comment about the stream but-

Brilliant album.

just as if not more technical than Themata. Interesting time signatures, great vocals (Ian Kenny never dissapoints in that regard), great drumming and some really catchy songs.

all I Know, Deadman and especially New Day are the standouts.

I like the more complex, epic songwriting that they've introduced to their songs now. Its no way near as anthemic or catchy as Themata but the songs have more to them.

I would rate the songs-

Simple Boy- 4/5

Goliath- 4.5/5

New Day- 5/5 (i would give it 50/5 if i could)

Set Fire To The Hive- 4.5/5

Umbra- 5/5

All I Know- 5/5

When The Medicine Wears Off- 3.5/5 (A bit pointless)

The Caudal Lure- 5/5

Illumine- 5/5

Deadman- 5/5

Change Part 2 5/5

It may seem very generous to people but i'm a Karnivool fanboy.

It's hard for me to rate individual songs because the album is a lot better as a whole. It's not one of those mainstream bands who release one good song and 20 ****y ones.

But i'd have to say my favorite are

The Caudal Lure
Goliath
New Day
Simple Boy
Illumine
Set fire to the hive.
