How much dope do these boys smoke... diggin this
ok its official albums gonna be a disappointment
Digging: Downfall of Gaia - Aeon Unveils the Thrones of Decay
man each song they release i like less, lions roar was awesome but this???
Digging: Various Artists - Nippon Girls - Japanese Pop, Beat & Bossa Nova
this has some really cool guitar work (they always do) but it just meanders ughhh
high hopes for the album have been shattered
Have you guys heard the Elves Beam Out song. It's alright. I think it's growing on me. Out of the four tracks they've released I like this one the least, but it's not bad and I'm still stoked for the album
Pretty lackluster, fuck
Digging: Arc Iris - Arc Iris
Digging: Blaspherian - Upon The Throne of Eternal Blasphemous Death
pop snap crackle and pop
I hate these lyrics.
I liked this music video better when it was Shpongle.
i will probably really like this album
That was awful.
Yeah I'm not really feeling this. I really hope they're just fucking with us and releasing the worst tracks as pre-releases because this isn't doing much for me.
Time to go listen to Integral Birth on repeat...
More and more, this album sounds like a weird Cynic/Aeon Spoke hybrid that's just wrong.
Digging: Damascus - When Last We Met
I like this one better than Kindly Bent (the track) and Lion's Roar. I'm still worried about the album as a whole, though. The lyrics on all 3 tracks seem to be fighting against the instrumentation. It wasn't like that at all on Focus or Traced.
sounds like prog rock. i dont understand the problem.
I love how every piece of news I post somehow doesn't get posted and then later in the day gets posted by someone else.
Will undoubtedly be a massive disappointment.
oh god, the chorus is just so bad
worst 1 yet fuck
Digging: Throwing Muses - Throwing Muses
I like it. I can understand the disappointment though. But it's going to be a pretty fun listen for me.
pretty shitty really wtf is happening
I wanted to be a leading man, dawg!!!
holy rice crispies this sucks
what are you doing cynic
Pretty universal hate, unexpected to say the least
I'm still not how I feel about this track and the last one :/
The lyrics don't flow so well at all. Big Cynic fan but this is just meh.
I'm glad I was never completely into them. Seems like I can enjoy this a lot more than most of you guys.
This song and the T/T are great, smd
2/5 fuck that sucked. Listened to this last night and made me go nighty night.
Digging: Ash Borer - Cold of Ages
started good then wtf
Eh.... Thats really all i can say 2.5/5
Digging: Skelator - King of Fear
Have you guys heard the Elves Beam Out song. It's alright.
Elves beam out is from Carbon Based Anatomy.
Anyways, listening to the song. Pretty good so far. Not quite as good as Traced in Air but that's okay. I also really enjoyed the title track, but not so much the first one.
The song really isn't bad. Sure, its a little more wishy washy, a little less concise and a bit confusing in the lyrics, but it definitely still is cynic. They're getting deeper into prog, and they're trying different things. I think this song may strike as a bit odd on its own, but should fit well in the flow of the album.
No need to pass judgement after one listen guys... we all know thats what we hate about the mainstream audience....
It's a great song. Think I prefer both the others ones at the moment. I hope this is the last song they release before the album... I like the dominance of the bass, provides such a strong backbone.
Haven't heard lyrics this bad since "feel the pain in my brain insane."
Snap crackle pop is a bit strange lol
I can't believe some of these lyrics are actually a thing. Paul might have gotten a bit too high this time around.
Honestly this is my favorite track that has released so far. I don't see why people are hating on this album so quickly. Its no TiA or Focus but its a natural progression from what they've been doing.
Still relatively hyped.
Snap Crackle Pop m/
Each song has been less appealing, I must say, but I'm going to reserve my judgements for the album as a whole. I feel like at this point it sounds like their weakest, yet most experimental. Agree about comments saying the vox and guitars are conflicting. The lyrics almost sound like a parody of themselves at points.
Still have hope! I'm sure I will enjoy it just doesn't sound as good as I'd hoped.
still really digging it
Digging: Jeremy Enigk - Return of the Frog Queen
sounds better than that one song that was basically demo quality.
They are evolving their sound, love it, album will be a 4-4.5 / 5
i still have hope, CBA was a great ep so how terrible can this really be?
Digging: Sigh - Ghastly Funeral Theatre
I didn't mind the bass in the other releases, but this sounds like crap and I don't like the lyrics- or really the vocals at all.
Thumbs up to Kindly Bent to Free Us
No thumbs to Lion's Roar
Thumbs down to True Hallucination Speak
No interest in checking out this song or the album.
Album will suck
Digging: Owen Pallett - In Conflict
I had hope after the 1st song was released but now I'm not so sure.
Erm, what is wrong with this track? I thought it was great.
Well that's that. I'm going to burn all of my Cynic vinyl's when this gets released.
