Conduit track listing:
03. The Distance
04. Best Friends And Hospital Beds
06. Death Comes To Us All
11. High Castles
Damn am I pumped
Digging: WIM - WIM
Good? I can't watch it at work.
Digging: Heliotropes - A Constant Sea
Doesn't grab me as much as Welcome Home Armageddon but it's still awesome
Digging: Incendiary - Cost of Living
^What he said
Edit: It's very melodic. This may appeal to people who are general fans of post-hardcore more than their previous few releases, and already existing fans are going to be satisfied as well, but it doesn't do much to add to their sound. Overall, it's pretty hella enjoyable. Will probably be a 3.5 for me
can't wait to buy this in my local hmv
the 2 singles have been great, looking forward to this
this was one of those bands I slept on and then later ran into "conversations," pretty sweet band
Digging: Park - It Won't Snow Where You're Going
I'm excited hopefully will be great. Band has been on the right track lately.
Casually dressed and deep in conversation was great, Hours too. Looking forward to this
Band are dog shit, man.
Really digging the music, but still not sure how I feel about his vocals.
Digging: Boysetsfire - While A Nation Sleeps...
^^agree, good sound, but i prefer matts vocals on casually dressed and hours.
Anyone else concerned about the ridiculously short song lengths? I swear the average song is only 2 1/2 minutes.
last album was really solid
@thief, yeah they look to be fast paced with no sign of slowing down, tbh i was hoping they would make more songs like the title track off their last album, that was a fantastic song.
WHA is my favorite by them, followed closely by Hours.
The songs they released individually were both under 3 minutes weren't they? That might be a bad sign...
@schoonda, I completely agree. Short songs are a sign of a very straightforward album.. Even though everyone loves to hate on Tales, one thing that album did well was contain songs with intricate and interesting structure. They did well with that too back in CDADIC.
@Ecnalzen, if you check out the itunes pre-order, only like 3 songs are over 3 minutes.... I swear, this album is going to be shorter than most EPs...
@THIEF, you're not wrong there. the songs to me, while decent, sound quite samey, they aren't bad, but i do miss the change of pace, and ryan's screaming vocals casually dressed is one of my favourites, i prefer matt's voice on that too..
So true. Oh well, Old Hymns was one of my favorite off of WHA, maybe they will all have that same charm..
That sucks. Didn't know Itunes had the track lengths up. At this point, I am pretty much a faithful follower of the band so I will probably pick it up regardless, lol. If the album is a little disappointing, hopefully it will at least be a step in the right direction for the next release.
People can rag on Tales, but it was great for what it was: an alternative/rock album. Plus, The Diary frickin rocks.
Agreed, Tales, in retrospect, was a fantastic album that suffered because they released it as FFAF, which created bias.
Also, check the full version of their song Nails!! So stinking good!
The complete album is streaming on Spotify now for anyone that cares.
