Whoops! Unintentionally skipped this part and started posting comm

Recommended Posts

...so figured better late than never..

Hi all, I originally stumbled across the forum by chance as I'd spotted a post about Raw Silk and wanted to join in the conversation as I have a close connection to the current line up of the band.

As I :

1.Love debating and discussing stuff (given the chance I'll question and query practically any subject to death) and

2. LOVE music and am always wanting to find out new good pieces of any genre to add to my collection

I figured this site could well have it all!

 

I don't stick to any particular genre but generally speaking my collection is a range of tracks from rock, country, folk and classical.

Raw Silk, Storm Engine, Porcupine Tree, A Perfect Circle, NFAB, Merrymouth = bands I'm loving at the moment

Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Bob Dylan, Dire Straits = some of my old classics.

 

Not a big fan of rap or contemporary jazz but I wouldn't write anything off completely without giving it a chance.

 

Thanks for being so welcoming and not telling me off for posting without introducing myself first

Yaaay! Will check that out for sure. (Ah, my husband just said they've been promising that for the last 5years.) Maybe the fans need to start a campaign going! :whip:

I could have sworn I posted in this thread. But welcome aboard. Good to have one of the ladiez on board. Though, fyi, Karpetface much prefers his women... well, if they're men. He prefers men. Mostly sexually, so as a poster on this forum I think you're in the clear. ;)

I think you might find it's the other way around. If you were to ask the members on this site, they'd likely tell you I am one of the more chill posters (maybe even poser ;}) here.

Truu. I often have to find my own excitement. Sadly, trolling Aussies seems to do it for me.

Is that really the way you see yourself? A "chill poser?" You're definitely a poussuer - no doubt about that. And I guess you think because you listen to funk and that solo artist, Jamiroquai, that you're in some way "chill?" Ha, you poussueuer.

 

How can you relax when you're constantly dreading what happens when you meet Jesus and he's all like, 'Hey man, what's up with you drinking all those IPA's? Don't you know drinking alcohol is prohibited by the Lord and me. I hate you. You've been a bad christian. You're not allowed into Heaven because I think you swore once on that music forum too. Sorry you wasted your life being christian."

 

'Cause you know he's got his eye on you, man. Stop chilling so much and fear your lord.

 

And fight me.

Had me looking up "pousseur" which I believe is what you meant.

 

Oh, and Jesus don't care about that, 'cause he swore, and his first miracle was turning water into wine. So I think I'm good. ;}

    • I suppose, I never use that button but it makes sense 
    • I think most of us browse this site using the "Unread Content" button, and we don't always see what sub-forum each thread is posted in. So it never hurts to clarify.  Also, a lot of these guys are pretty dumb, and they need all the help they can get. ;}
    • Not earth-shattering as far as innovation, but the album is very solid musically. A good listen.
    • Received this in the post today...and for me it was a disappointment upon hearing it. Purchased based on the first track released and that I like the two Seven cds,with the debut being top of the class,but this is has a few country type songs which don't sit with me at all...if I'd have heard this disc before I bought it I very much doubt ..or in fact I can definitely say I wouldn't,really disappointed in it.
    • I would agree with that,it was a classy album,full of great tunes
    • Cool! I figured if it's posted in here I won't have to specify that they're Christian only
    • Closest thing I've seen to the point I was going to make. Except, Nordic Union have two bog-average albums and neither would be a good Eclipse album - not even close, imho.  Anyway, for me, there is no doubt in the world that Eclipse's biggest issue is that for a period there for a few years, Martensson was more or less single-handedly writing about a dozen albums per year for every man and his dog. He was just everywhere and it was pretty obvious that was an issue. Some of it was great - I still think the Toby Hitchcock debut is the best album that Martensson has ever written, full stop. And the WET stuff is excellent too, thanks to it being collaborative. But a lot of it was already getting tired early on, such as the poor Ammunition and Nordic Union albums, and that female fronted hard rock band I forget the name of. He was just spreading himself too thin and sadly it's finally come to really show on an Eclipse album. Which is the real shame of it all.  I think the new album is a solid album, but as Glen says above, the best song on it is more or less completely identical to songs on previous albums. It's just got some different lyrics, but otherwise just the same song.  It's a massive ask and not going to happen, but the best thing that could happen for Eclipse is that Martensson just didn't involve himself in any projects for the next two years and concentrate on making good music with Eclipse. Won't happen, though. Also, the different production's been mentioned too - not a fan. It's not offensive, but it just doesn't sound as good as previous albums. 
    • I thought their debut album was excellent. An album that grew on me with pretty much every single spin. I also found a unique-ness in them that is hard to find these days. Great melodies. Very much looking forward to hearing what they come up with next. 
    • Christian ones only?   1. Anberlin     -    Never Take Friendship Personal 2. Holy Soldier     -    Last Train 3. Holy Soldier     -    Holy Soldier 4. Pillar     -    For The Love Of The Game 5. The Brave     -    Battle Cries 6. Disciple     -    Scars Remain 7. Pillar     -    Confessions 8. Disciple     -    O God Save Us All 9. Anberlin     -    Blueprints For The Black Market 10. Anberlin     -    Vital   Wow, thought there'd be more non-modern stuff in that list, but that's apparently my top 10.
