My first session of fully listening to Pale Communion:
I only listened to three tracks beforehand (Cusp, Eternal Rains, Goblin) and I decided to wait until I had my physical copy to listen through the whole thing, man was it a long wait.
But I’m glad I did wait because it’s fucking awesome. Those drums man.. they sound stellar. The bass drum sounds meaty coming through these speakers; a quality I always appreciate when it’s present in an album. Production overall is great for me. Love the mix of that major 70s prog influence with the 80s “Holy Diver-like production” Mikael has mentioned.
It’s a much more cohesive record in contrast to Heritage, it feels a lot more driven. As far as preference goes I’m afraid I can’t go picking & choosing between the two. Both, despite their similarities, have many differentiations that make it difficult to compare.
I’ll probably write a proper album review for this soon once I listen to it more and maybe find a few nit-picks but for now I’ll say it’s damn good. But really, what else could I have expected from a band I have loved so much? They never disappoint me.
Godfuckingdammit something always goes on in my fucking head to ruin everything
"Today I finally got into a band I wanted to really get into but never could before and now have a new favorite album and also the new album from one of my favorite bands of all time is out and I got my copy today and it’s great but..
*thinks about things*
*thinks about her*”
Fuck this I’m gonna blast that shit and go deaf ‘till I can’t hear myself think anymore
Kid A did not click with me at all when I first listened to it, and the next listen after.
Now, I’m loving the shit out of it. So much so, it compelled me to go out and collect it physically today.
What the fuck changed???
- Me: you can talk to me whenever you feel bad! I'll always be there for you
- Me: *bottles up problems* *doesnt talk about it with anyone* *lays in bed instead of trying to solve my own problems*
