I'll resist the temptation of whipping up a review right away, because there's a lot to digest on Sound Awake, needs a little time for an appropriate review. Album is definitely what I expected it to be though.

Okay...now I've heard the whole thing I'm in two minds about this...there is a significant lull in the album for 3 songs (Medicine Wears Off - Illumine) that I got thoroughly bored through...and did anyone else have the problem of Change cutting off only a few minutes in?

Damn you mammalian! The myspace keeps cutting off Change only a few minutes in. I'm going to have to wait for the album to come out properly to hear it.

Shame you don't like but we're just doing fine without you man.

A bit reluctant to agree with 'album of the year' already since it has a few faults but meh it's so fuckin enjoyable right now.

Good album, but it doesn't take more than one listen to realize this isn't the album of the year.

Neverender is the album of the year already, and its basically the album of all time.

Only like one song from Neverender is unique to this year. Giving what is basically a compilation album "Album of the Year" is sort of silly.

Its not really a compilation, its more of a complete collection. Hey, I'm just saying, it has a freaking 4.6.

I think I'm going to have to give it a 5, 4.5 at least after a couple of listens.

Definitley not album of the year, but so much more original than other rock acts from Aus.

Think I'll end up giving this a 4.5 ultimately, more like between a 4.2-4.3 now in the context of Themata being a 4. Definately not a 5. Expect a review to be sometime up this week, want to do it well.

Caudal Lure is such a sick song. :D

Good album, kind of reminds of Tool.

The album is much slower as a prog rock album then what i'm used to in the progressive death scene ;).

I want to buy this.

Didn't have time to listen to it all but loved the tracks i listened to. Will probably buy this as soon as I can.

Sounds even better after more listens. Definitely a grower.

First half of the album is the better part. The 2nd part is fine, but feels a bit slow.

There's like 4 minutes of filler i'd say, which is good for a 60+ minute album.

I'm starting to think Themata is still better than this album. I'll see once I actually own it.

I just wish the album was more technical like Themata (song) which had some fairly difficult guitar parts.

Captain North

This album is more technical isn't it?

zuzek

Not harder to play the guitar seperately probably. But it's much harder to nail the vibe and interplay with the other instruments well than it was on Themata. Prefer that above speed and technicality tbh.

Captain North

Mmm, this album never makes you want to stand up and scream the words like Themata did for me. Maybe in time it will though.

Time sigs are more retarded on this, so from that point of view its more technical.
I love this album, its different than Themata though, more of a grower rather than hit you straight on.

So yeah myspace is being gay so I can't listen to this until my friend gets it. I've been playing the shit out of Themata as compensation.

Brilliant album.

just as if not more technical than Themata. Interesting time signatures, great vocals (Ian Kenny never dissapoints in that regard), great drumming and some really catchy songs.

all I Know, Deadman and especially New Day are the standouts.

I like the more complex, epic songwriting that they've introduced to their songs now
