I have to adjust to their sound.People seem to like them...Will see. If the album is any good, maybe it's gonna work as a Trojan Horse and make me delve into their sound.
Aww yeah! So stoked for this
Digging: Orphaned Land - Mabool (The Story of the Three Sons...)
Yesyesyesyesyesyes cannot wait. Hope it's better/different than All the Wars
Digging: Busdriver - Perfect Hair
Knew you were gonna be ;)
It was only ever going to be you, Mad, who got the news article for this ;)
Fuck yes, I jumped at it when I saw the Facebook announcement
The instrumental already sounds great. the wait feels too long now!
Instrumentation is sounding great but nothing outstanding, but then again this is just a teaser. Production is awesome
Thoughts on the artwork? It doesn't seem that TPT to me
No, but it's enough to get me excited.
It's odd and I'm not so sure about it so far. I'll probably make an opinion about it once I hear the album
Am I the only one who think All the Wars was an awesome album? But yeah, this sounds very cool too, a little more like their earlier albums imo
Digging: Tim Bowness - Abandoned Dancehall Dreams
I thought the review summed it up perfectly. Didn't quite use the string elements as much as I'd hoped and Reaching Out seemed to be holding back on its own climax
gonna z hard
Digging: Sandrose - Sandrose
Always wanted to check this band out but always forgot and wow they have a big discog
lol not really
for me yeah, I usually pick 2 or 3 albums that most people like but I dont know where to start for this band
Their band name and some stuff from their albums have to do with obscure foreign films, is this album related at all to the movie magnolia?
Either Little Man for their older stuff or Someone Here Is Missing for their newer more alt-rock stuff
Cool cool cool. I liked All The Wars.

"Am I the only one who think All the Wars was an awesome album?"
No man, the first 4 tracks of it are superb, up there with their best work, but it just didn't hit the same heights in the second half, Reaching Out was lacking a bit agreed
@Insomniac Defo check Someone Here is Missing, Little Man and Variations on a Dream, they have quite a varied and brilliant discog
@skoopy Choccy pretty much nailed it
What We Have Sown is very solid too though, I think I like it as much as Little Man
@Mad: Well, yeah, I agree Build a World was the worst on All the Wars, and Reaching Out was
disappointing. However, Give It Back is one of my favorite songs from the band, and Someone Pull Me
Out and One More Step Away are very nice softer songs, because the band succeeded in doing ballads in
and 5/4 times, which is a great idea imo.
@Onirium What We Have Sown is also a a great album yeah, I've yet to listen to a TPT album below a 4.0. Build a World and Give It Back are a bit lacklustre for me, their lyrics and the latter's repetitive chorus thing don't really make up for a lack of exciting instrumental stuff going on in the songs. Someone Pull Me Out and One More Step Away are definitely enjoyable but not outstanding, I've never really been very good at picking up time signatures tbh
Don't listen to 10/12 stories down then. But surely you've heard "I will light up your eyes"? It's arguably their best and more beautiful song.
Relistened to Reaching Out. I actually quite like it, despite the climax falling short. Still a solid song
Yeah I haven't heard that one yet, not even that song. I'm drawing out my listening of the rest of TPT's discog to make the most of it if you get me, and that album's the next on my to-buy list so I'll hear it sooon.
For me Reaching Out's conclusion is pretty good, it's more the middle section that doesn't go anywhere that annoys me, as if just to draw out the length
Oh I do the same. It's so easy to get to saturation point with them, so I literally force myself to not listen to them. Wow, so you haven't? It'll probably be a top 10 song for you
Yeah, I'll go through phases with this band. It's great music to work to, and listening through several of their albums in one sitting works for me. Then I forget about them for a few months, and come back and re-realize how much I love their stuff. This track is great... I have high hopes for this album.
