thankfully the production seems to be a big step up. their last album was amazing but the production made it feel like i was listening to it through a cell phone.
Digging: Empires - Orphan
These guys used to be Brother Bear, right?
related reviews are fucked up here
Digging: Round One to Round Five - 1993-99 Main Street Records
JANUARY 1979 SAW A HORRIBLE CRASH AND I COULDNT HELP BUT LAUGH MY EAR PRESSED AGAINST THE PAST LIKE A GLASS ON A WALL OF A HOUSE IN A PHOTOGRAPH
Think I seem to be in the minority of people who prefer the production on the last album, felt a bit more raw.
Digging: Maveth / Embrace of Thorns - A Plague Through the Heavens
song was awesome, and the production is a million times better than their debut. This album is gonna rule.
I don't know, sadly not feeling it with these new tracks. Melodies, riffs, songwriting, vocals: this feels like a big step down after Desolate Peaks. The lead at 1:00 sounds like it took five seconds to come up with. Second half of the song is better though.
I like this. Couldn't stand the vocals on the last album. Not sure if I just like them now or if they're different but I remember it being un-listenable for me.
Great but I miss the extreme vocals. ;(
