  1. This is a lovely album though...but it ain't metal.
  2. I doubt they would be to your taste, but as I said, every album is so different that you could perhaps find something to like.
  3. Whenever Kayo Dot get mentioned, Maudlin of the Well gets a guernsy. I have never heard M o'the W! I do enjoy KD - no album is quite like the last.
  4. Not yet in the mood to give the Worm another go.
  5. Yep. I would have liked to have heard Chelsea going off and some sort of imaginative fusion would have been good too...opportunity missed I think.
  6. Yeah, me too. It's neither one thing nor the other. Not a bad album but I won't return to it often. Great cover art though.
  7. That's the way I feel about them too. Always great cover art, always well reviewed, then I listen for a bit and I remember why I don't like them - it's all the reasons you listed, plus they just suck.
  8. Most November rain in Canberra since records started. Finally a sunny day today and it is forecast to get to 23C. Woohoo! I am really looking forward to some hot dry weather though. Bring it on.
  9. RICHARD STRAUSS - Salome. I watched a production of this at the movies today. The apotheosis of late romantic chromaticism. The orchestration often producing an overblown wash of sound rather like metal but without the drums. It was indeed the most metal opera I have heard and it was a bleak and bloody thing to look at as well.
  10. VOICES - Breaking the Trauma Bond. First listen to this while I was out in the mud (my waterlogged garden)and I rather enjoyed it.
  11. No, you are right. I used to really love these guys too but there is too much gentle arpeggio nonsense and sweet singing and not enough actual metal in this latest release. Also the only download I can source here includes a 'Classical' version which I definitely don't want. It sounds bland. Thatguy hates bland. And it looks like Edward Scissorhands is about to have his nose off. No,wait, they are leaves. Pretty metal leaves.
  12. I like it too and would call it prog metal or something. Nice relaxing listen, but I prefer chaos and dissonance on the whole. I'm with Our Father. I found this a fun listen.
  13. That is a beautiful truck. And I say that as a man who has no interest in trucks.
  14. And that's the most anyone could ask of you. A pretty good take on the album, actually. I just like the dissonant chaos more than you do. At the other end of the spectrum, what do you think of the new DER WEG EINER FREIHEIT?
