Yeah when you see any sign of the sun at all turn this on and it's amazing, not a winter record at all

You're missing out on a lot dude. Ambience and metal were meant for each other.

I can see the potential but so much of it sounds too sludgy for me. Lacks that stormy reverb

Digging: Say Lou Lou - Lucid Dreaming

Strangely, this album is what I need in my life right now. Warmed up to it over the past few nights.'



wizard you are the weirdest person ever



also, now that I started noticing the production on this album it has turned out to be nearly unlistenable for me :/

What's wrong with the production? It's way better than on anything else he's put out

Whenever I hear the crackling on the title track I just flinch

I have not heard any crackling - you sure it's not just a bad download?

Yeha the original 320kbps that leaked before release is not a good dl. I got it off itunes as well after it came out and it sounds a lot nicer.



I can see what you mean about the thinness fish but it's actually a lot thicker mix than his past albums. I couldn't even listen to Souvenirs on headphones it was that bad

I have listened to it in V0, 256kbps, 320 kbps, MP3 lossless and FLAC formats with different headphones and on different devices



Also, Noctus told me he also hears it which is one of the reasons he gave it such a low score

I don't know if you guys are just deaf or what



the crackle is mostly overbearing during the first part of the song with the waving guitars before the piano starts



even at low volumes it is horrendous



I'm skipping it every time now
