I think the biggest reason this album is crazy different from the last is the lack of Bulb. He did alot of work on the first album writing-wise, and worked pretty extensively with Tosin on the whole project. Maybe it's the lack of Bulbitude thats turning you off?

The previews sound pretty cool musically to me, for the most part... that distorted rhythm guitar tone though... that is pretty bad...

That can't be it, because then it would be more Djenty

Have you heard the full album? No, I didn't think so. I was actually the one to first post the album samples in this thread, so trust me I have heard them multiple times. I am 99% positive that Javier's solo piece will indeed be on the album, if not, why would they display it in the studio video ?
They were 30 second clips and there are 6 minute+ songs. I'd bet the solo piece is used as an interlude at the beginning or end of a track.

Tosin can do no wrong, and Javier and Navene are both incredible musicians as well. This album will slay, they are the future of music.

Pffft if the album doesn't work they just need to kidnap Bulb and have him in the band as well (Bulb and Tosin are an insane team :o )... But i doubt that it won't be good Cannot wait!

Gotta say too, they appear to have taken in some Jazz fusion kinda elements, ya know, exivious type stuff.... which makes it even more awesome And once again, pushing music (rather than trying to re-do the first album...)

but yea, it's going to be awesome

It sounds like David could have Javier's solo piece in it.

The good thing about Chaotisys's post however is the link he posted for the samples has 1:30 samples rather than the :30 I knew about from Amazon.

So thank you

Yea, like the guy above me said, the samples I posted are brand new, 1:00 long, and entirely different from the first batch of :30 samples from a while ago. I don't want to sit here and argue about this, personally I REALLY hope Javier's solo piece is on the album because it's amazing. However, they could have just snuck in that clip of him practicing it for fun (Didn't you hear them whispering to eachother as they peeked through the door?) as these studio videos were taken before they went on tour. He could have simply been practicing it for the tour. Again, I hope I'm wrong.

Anyway, they posted on their Facebook that they'll be releasing another new song in a few days. Here's to hoping it's better than Isolated Incidents. That song is WEAK.

I'm thoroughly looking forward to this album, but...

The same argument could be applied to us fanboys (no shame!). We don't know that the previews we heard weren't the pinnacle of every song. Just playing a little Devil's Advocate.

If you're going to 'like' my posts, give me some rep instead.

It has a couple of pretty awesome riffs, but it just seems like it is just a bunch of them thrown together rather than a proper instrumental

I like the melody of Isolated Incidents live but it doesn't sound nearly as good on the recording. I love it live, I'd say I dislike it on the recording. I didn't really like the first album initially so here's hoping Weightless will grow on me.

I agree, I absolutely hate the way it sounds on the recording. I was pretty disappointed when they released it after watching so many live videos of it where it sounds so much better. The song itself has a couple parts I like, but overall it feels like an incomplete idea. I hope they release Odessa, that song sounds good from the samples.

The problem with releasing a second album is that you already made a first one i guess hehe, obviously this album is a ton "heavier" then the first one, and i think its just logical and the samples are so ....ing intriguing i need to take a shit right now, THIS IS GONNA BE A WHOLE NEW ERA FOR ANIMALS AS LEADERS & MUSIC AND IM SOOOOO FUUUUCKING THRILLED, PREPARE YOUR ANUS! <3

Isolated Incidents really didn't do it for me, I'm afraid. It was good, as Animals as Leaders will be inevitably, but it didn't truly hit me the same way 'Point to Point' did when I first found out about them. Going to reserve final judgment for when the album is released in its entirety, of course.

Oh man I love Point to Point. I think it's their most underrated track. Shame it's only like a minute long though.

I think I read a comment by Nolly that said that the new AAL music doesn't have quality song structure, but the old AAL did because of Bulb. Still, the music is great, but maybe doesn't flow as well...

^Pure opinion. don't set yours based on what someone else says man! I'm all for bulb's arranging style, but I also dont mind tosin's looser, "train of thought" structural form. When the album hits and all the riffage descends, I don't think too many people will be complaining anymore, one way or the other.
