this is bad - terrible by collapse's standards - and im glad that the vaguely positive reception from the track preview thread died down somewhat
sif nailing it except for the word hippie.
aight listening now
on track 2
pretty fucking cool so far
just finished my first listen. can't say i've heard anything like this all year, at the very least.
really great first impression. not rating it yet because lol @ only rating an album after one listen, but if i end up returning to this frequently, it'll likely be a 4 or higher.
Album Rating: 3.0
finally finished listened to this, good album
listened to the beginning of the song with flutes and ew that was bad
Digging: Vice or Virtue - Enlightenment
NOT GRIM ENOUGH
'Bodies Under the Falls' is WIN
Album Rating: 3.0
I literally snorted water out of my nose when the pan flute came in...in a good way. Album gets really old really fast though...was kind of hoping for trem-picked banjoes and washboard scraping though.
am i the only one who saw the typo of "Panpticon" in the third line?
Album Rating: 2.5
Apparently so! Fixed, nice catch.
Digging: Dark Tranquillity - Construct
Lol Panopticon always sucked.
this album got kentucky fried
Digging: LCD Soundsystem - This Is Happening
Album Rating: 3.5
Digging: Thao With The Get Down Stay Down - We The Common
I understand the grievances with the album, but I still enjoyed this a lot. The Black Metal segments were awesome and I love the Bluegrass acoustics, only song I didn't really enjoy was Come All Ye Coal Miners.
Digging: Immolation - Kingdom of Conspiracy
Album Rating: 2.0
Yeah this is bad. Really disappointed by this release, first bad album from Lunn.
Digging: The National - Trouble Will Find Me
I actually really enjoyed this becuase his back and forth between metal and country elicits this battle between his influences/backround that i found very compelling
Album Rating: 4.0 | Sound Off
Album took time to grow on me but I'm really enjoying it. It easily stands alongside Panopticon's other work, but I'm not sure if it exceeds Collapse or Social Disservices. I find the use of samples here to be rather excessive, but I still think that all the music otherwise fucking slays.
