The rhodes in Another Year is perfection. I freaking love the sound of Rhodes.
HOLY SHIT this has far exceeded all of my expectations. I don't know what to do with myself, I think I need some alone time
High quality video on Youtube is the best audio quality you'll get for a few more days.
I don't know if I would compare AAL to Tigran Hamasyan, but yeah, I will definitely have to listen to it quite a bit. I am liking it on my first listen though.
So far, I'm a third of the way through the album. It's definitely up there for me, along with the self-titled. Unless we get a surprise and Periphery drops Juggernaut later this year, this is probably gonna get AOTY from me.
It pains my soul how amazing it is, I can barely handle it.
It just makes me so happy, the little lick before the hook comes back in at the end of physical education is pure genius and I actually laughed in amazement.
Its gonna take me a couple of listens to get a good understanding of it, but god dam they have knocked it out of the mother facking ball park this time
So what bundles are you guys getting? Im stuck between 6 or 7 or maybe 1
I just got the regular CD alone, since I already bought an AAL t-shirt at the gig the other day and another t-shirt from Navene, and I've been spending way too much lately. I was about to get the bundle with the hoodie with numbers though. I loved the design on that one.
I'm applying to Berklee -,-
Yeah, I'm not really hearing any similarity there. His last one was easily my favorite album of the last 15 years, this looks like it may be in my top 25 or so! This is pretty great though. I'd say it's probably their best album, though I guess we'll see if anything sticks with me for years like a few tracks off the debut have. The big thing it has over the debut is that it's got way more material and none of the tracks are "transition" tracks. Also, the guitars sound a LOT better. I think every track is really good besides the one with "Future" in it and maybe that spanish guitar one. Kaskade and Another Year and Nephele stand out as my favorites on first listen but basically everything is non-stop awesome. Physical Education is particularly creative. Favorite riff is probably that ridiculous slappy thing in Woven Web at about 1:30.
Physical education is really cool.
I was surprised on that one- Javier was playing the leads.
It's a really unique track.
^ Yea im loving the fact Javier is getting leads he fully deserves them
The problem with this album is that I preordered a legit copy and thus don't really want to listen to it too much on youtube before I get it, but it was sold on merchdirect so it could be a month or two!
Very drastic leap in maturity from their previous music. Dare I say this is the album I was quietly hoping they would end up making. Granted, I've only listened to it once, but i can't imagine it becoming worse over repeated listens. Amazing at what these guys are achieving musically.
The new album is so great! I just got done streaming it from youtube. I can't wait for next week!
me too! SO DAMN GOOD! The sweet warm summer grooves, so smooth and comforting! So catchy! ahhhhh!
Totally agree, I had one of those moments when listening to the end of nephele. That rifff... AND just after 3:24 in lipincott, another killer riff
:28 seconds into "Another Year" is The Lick.
