Did it better you mean. They are broken up now. And while Come, Reap was a great EP. This > The Thousandfold Epicentre

"But the time for this sound has come and gone." What Ghost have done on this record, no band has done in these aspects completely. There are elements on this album that are completely fresh. And to add, doom has been a genre since 1980s, stoner rock has been a genre since 1990s. The retro scene started in the early 2000s and just got popular recently. The bands that play this music from the heart don't give a shit about trends and what have yous. Of course, hipsters and others will move on to the next thing. They play the music because they like the music. Maybe not for these guys, but it may have come and gone in your eyes, but the music has been around forever and will always be around.

I've never heard these guys' music. Is it worth it? Should I start from this album?

Listening to it right now, and DAMN. I'm on track 5 now, and the album's awesome so far.

"The retro scene started in the early 2000s and just got popular recently."



Not really. There is no single retro scene because retro bands don't all hark back to the same era. 90's power-pop was a retro scene. So was the early 2000's classic rock revival. Sure, people have always listened to those kinds of music and Ghost certainly have an original take on the subject matter, but the fact remains that almost everything that could have been with the genre has been done.



I believe that rock music as an art is supposed to be forward-looking and that looking back at the sixties and seventies and claiming that rock music peaked then and it's been all downhill since then is bullshit. Musicians are supposed to innovate and find new sounds. I love The Beatles and I love Tool. But I am not looking for the next Beatles or the next Tool. I am looking for the next band that stands on the shoulders of those giants and takes music forward. If that makes me a hipster then so be it.

"Year Zero", "Secular Haze", "Ghuleh" and "Body In Blood" rule so hard.

Seeing people crying that it's not Opus II. I say it's better.

They have grown in so many ways since Opus. This has been on repeat for days now and I'm still finding something new on every listen.

I actually totally whiffed on Opus when it came out. Giving it a spin is on my to-do list today.

On further review, this is indeed a pretty big improvement on Opus. Much more epic and better composition in general.

Going to have to review this higher, I agree with a lot of your points, but have some counter points to add. It will bump down from a 5 to a 4.5 but this is a solid, solid release.
