Had high hopes for these, but was let down by:
Not sure how a band goes from the heights of Reflections of a Floating World to this. A bit of a lame duck album with no grit. I want to like it, but can’t.
|2||In This Moment|
All the pieces are there for an incredible industrial metal onslaught, but no.
A hodgepodge of tracks that are predominantly throwaways. Did I need to hear the instrumentals or the live tracks - no.
As a fan of both Arcane and Caligula’s Horse, this album is tame. And the extra tracks - why bother.
|5||Stitched Up Heart|
Overly produced- lost their edge
|6||Five Finger Death Punch|
As anticipated really.
|That Elder record aint no Reflections or Lore, I'll give you that, but it's still pretty dang good. Not sure having high hopes for 2 or 6 is a great way to live life.|
|I hear you engleprunt - maybe it’s too much krautrock and keyboards, and too little metal that gets me with omens. I have tried many times to listen and change my mind, but not yet.|
|Although I did not listen to these, and don’t plan to, I imagine PJ - Gigaton and SP - Cyr were duds.|
