Drinking my Beaujolais nouveau (Vive La France for your beautiful traditions!!!!!) while spinning them back to back on vinyl (Jaysus, sound is incredible on both vinyls!!!!) and still GOC wipes the floor with Tunguska(what a waste of a great title, btw!).
wow. I'll leave that comment there.
in terms of this album - it's a boring one paced generic album.
Martennson needs to regather himself for the Eclipse album next year and produce something truly exciting
And now back to the music ...I gave this a listen today and thought it was pretty good. I would agree with some prior comments and say it is a step down in overall song quality from the debut. But there weren't any songs that I'd classify as filler. If you liked the debut I think you'll find it an enjoyable listen as it retains the same style. My initial favorites would be Outrun You, Because of Us and New Life Begins.
