Kanji is a bitch I hear. But it's cool that they are the same as Chinese characters apparently. You'll be able to read in two languages while learning one. How cool is that?

At least Japanese is easier on the ear than other Asian languages. There were people from Japan at my uni, they were cool.

Mmm this is true, hopefully means getting lost in China will be less likely to happen the entire time. And also true, Korean is pretty cool but I've yet to hear a sentence in Mandarin out loud that hasn't made me wince a little

More distorted electric guitars? Fear of a Blank Planet.

Deadwing is the best PT from this era imo, turns this one's creepy vibes into a ghost story

Fear of a Blank Planet is definitely worth a check too, a little more similar to this tone-wise and with some of SW's best material

Can’t go wrong with either Deadwing or Fear Of A Blank Planet; Deadwing was my intro to PT though, so I’m a little biased towards it.



“...but I've yet to hear a sentence in Mandarin out loud that hasn't made me wince a little.”

You’re just not used to the sounds yet then. Mandarin flows and sounds quite beautiful 99% of the time; Cantonese is a different cup of tea though... different headspace for that.

Was planning on jamming Deadwing next as I think I recall dabbling in that record a fair few years ago. Tough to know what to check first when a band has such a large discog. and most of it is critically acclaimed. Plus Wilson's solo shit.
