Evergrey - Glorious Collision

I had never given these guys the time of day before I bought this one earlier this year and after one listen I wasn't to sure but over the last 6 months it has me blown away. The lyrics, vocals and melodies just keep me coming back for more. Favs are "Fit the Mold", "Frozen", "Wrong", "You", "Free","The Phantom Letters", "The Disease...." and "....and the Distance".

Great album! Totally love these guys! But in my humble opinion, this is no where near their best work. I'd highly recommend checking out In Search of Truth, Recreation Day, The Inner Circle, and Torn. Those are my favorite Evergrey albums, with In Search of Truth topping the list.

Totally agreed, right on the money here... especially the order of best to worst. Their first two are also worth checking out and truth be told they haven't released a bad album but the earlier stuff has aged a little.

For me nothing even touches 'Monday Morning Apocalypse'...that is the band firing on all cylinders IMO. Impeccable album and in my top 5 for its year of release.

 

Cheers

I've read those most fans think that In Search For Truth is the best disc and have seen many name Torn as well as a fav. I picked up The Inner Circle and it didn't grab me the same way that the new one did. I think they just put out a best of disc earlier this year and that might be a place to start for me for the older stuff.

Neither of those are as good as MMA - in fact Torn completely rips it off by re-hashing the same riffs etc. Trust me :-))

You will very likely find more reviews bashing Evergrey's - MMA over any other album. Don't get me wrong though, I love MMA, but this would not be my first choice for a gateway album into Evergrey's music.

I have and dig their RECREATION DAY album but I've never gotten round to investigating them further.

here is 'unspeakable' from MMA, but truth be told, they are ALL great!

I probably prefer 'To Fit The Mold', both are really good songs though. Not sure how this band has stayed off my radar.

Yeah probably because it's their most melodic and commercially accessible - which is of course what appeals to me

Very good point. And even though MMA is not my favorite Evergrey album, I do appreciate it's qualities.

Been listening to some of the songs on this one and it's really growing on me. Sounds like one of the best albums of the year with 3 absolute belters, i.e. 'To Fit The Mold', 'Frozen' and Leave it Behind Us'. 'I'm Drowning Alone' is pretty good too. If I start liking the other tracks as well, this will be on my top 3 or 4 for the year and surely 2011's most underrated album.

I love Evergrey but have not heard this yet. Hopefully it should be on Spotify so will try to have a listen over the weekend.

Been listening to this on Spotify and yes it is good, but blow me if they arent just hashing up the same classic riffs and melodies again from the MMA album.

 

I dont think they will ever top that album now.

 

Classics such as 'In Remembrance', 'The Dark I Walk Through' and 'I Should' they keep on trying to better, but just end copying. Or trying to in any case, cos those songs will always be better for me.

 

& that's not even mentioning the first 6 tracks which will all kick your arse.

 

Wes, get MMA prompto - you will love it.

I think you should also look back on the earlier albums - I am surprised you didnt like 'The Inner Circle' cos that is much better than the new album. Basically I think MMA took all the good ideas from that album and perfected them.

 

Those earlier albums still contain their best songs tho in 'A Touch Of Blessing' and of course the AWESOME 'As I Lay Bleeding' from recreation day which is their fav of mine :-))

Had a few listens to this now and it is a very good album. It is too long imo, 13 tracks is too many and there are some fillers. However, there are 6 or 7 very good songs on here and I would give special mention to:

 

Leave It Behind Us - great opener, really nice up tempo song with a catchy chorus.

 

To Fit The Mold - second best song on the album for me, another catchy one with a fantastic chorus.

 

The Phantom Letters - my favourite track, great song with some excellent guitar.

 

One of the better albums from last year, would have been even better if they'd kept it to about 10 tracks.

I used to ignore all prog bands but then I heard Threshold-Dead Reckoning and was blown away. So now I'm a "little" more open to prog metal bands. I like what I hear so I'll have to track this one down...

 

Any one else into Threshold...are their other releases like Dead Reckoning?

All three are great but also love "Wrong" "Frozen" "Out of Reach" but "Fit the Mold" and "Phantom Letters" are the cream of the crop.

    • This is what I was saying today - there's already been a handful in the last few months - didn't a handful of people get in a panic about the Cuban one? Was it Cuba? Who knows, who cares? The most blatantly obvious effect covid has had on people is that it's turned them into panic-stricken fucking morons. Is this how the rest of our lives look? We jump at every single shadow now that ever emerges from the dark? It's an absolutely pathetic way to "live."  Remember when a couple of years ago the world revolved around inspirational sayings like, "Don't let what can go wrong hold you back. Focus on what can go right." They used to word it a lot better than that, but the idea is the same. But the world's the opposite now. Flipped on it's head. A couple of cases of something we're all vaccinated against pop up somewhere and everyone spirals into a panic again? Even though the overwhelming odds are that this will be absolutely nothing again, first port of call is just full blown panic again? What a fucking world, ay.  And this is one of my greatest concerns about the whole stupid fucking thing. In NSW we are 95% vaccinated but every single case that is detected is treated as if we're in March 2020. Even with a 95% vaccination rate, how the virus is viewed and feared has not changed a single percent, in the government and media, since March 2020. And I think this is a problem. We're all vaccinated against it so why isn't it let go, like a flu or whatever else people are vaccinated against, so we can build some kind of resistance to it? Get this herd immunity thing under way? If we're not doing it now, what's the point of any of it? This is the preference, to live in stupid fear for the rest of our lives?  I don't know. I don't know anything about anything, but if we're all vaccinated and we just let the covid thing spread anywhere and everywhere, doesn't that just lessen the effect of any new strains and all this melodrama? But if we keep jumping at every single case like it's terminal cancer, how the fuck do we ever try to move on towards a life worth living?   
    • yep that's exactly what it says on the Web page. Probably takes them about a few hours of tinkering ... adding the odd name etc. not bad work for $7500 
    • It is funny and you are correct the woke police would not allow this behavior on TV or anywhere else any more. Of course who wouldn't want to lay hands on Kirstie Ally?  Those years weren't bad, but I am a bit older and these years are my favorite and equally as un PC.  
    • Well that was certainly a nice tune. Big fan of the production, that bass is rattling my fillings.
    • He has a soft spot for the cheesy promotional tracks.    
    • We didn't really get "cable" TV here until about the early 90's. I have great memories of SNL from that era. I've always followed it since then.  
    • Even if she did, I don't think I'd slide it in.
    • Does anybody remember when SNL was actually funny? I was in the 7th grade and I'd record it every week, Ive looked for a long time for many of the truly funny skits from this time, and now ive started to find some, bet they couldnt get away with this again.
