I actually really like the mood and feel of Geography, it's more like an outro to the previous track but its sexy and the distorted build up transition towards the end is perfectly fitting given the context

And yea Marid is truth, mindle knows I dig water effects so hard in music and that rising acoustic riff that overtakes the atmosphere is zoney and emotional. This is a perfect track displaying the use of intervals in that the breaks and pauses convey that spacious theory that some classical artists would make use. Hard to explain but amazing feel for sure.

Digging: Deniro Farrar - The Patriarch II

yeah they don't sound like they're "incorporating" a lot of genres, it just sounds like they started at the drawing board and intentionally forgot genres existed

this album's best moments are actually probably the quietest

"it just sounds like they started at the drawing board and intentionally forgot genres existed"

precisely, and it seems they also forgot other bands existed too because this doesn't sound like anything I've heard before and they clearly went for a groundbreaking approach. More bands need to learn to utilize this albums theoretical approach of allowing a free flowing atitude without being afraid to go as far as they need to express a certain idea or emotion if that makes sense.

Yeah, that statement is so true
Kayo, on the other hand, sounds like he took the drawing board and turned it into a wormhole

No, I actually enjoyed it but what I meant was as time goes on I've been becoming more open minded and have been able to absorb things better with greater understanding. So although I enjoyed it I may actually enjoy it even more this time around.

Ah, I get you; I feel that way too
I really want to hear Gamma Knife, but I'm going through chronologically, so Coyote comes first

It's funny, coz the riff in the second half of Birth Pains sounds a lot like a Coheed and Cambria riff (I think it's Faint of Hearts); maybe motW are secretly influential
