this thread is to review/discuss this album. the other thread is flooded with requests for links, and no conversation can be carried. ill start this thread with my views on the album(although slightly negative).
i honestly think im the only one who isnt blown away at all at this. it sounds very...i dont know. i feel like the whole album has the same vibe with each song that i just can't get into. this album to me is everything se dice wasnt(and i fuckin love se dice). i kinda feel like these were just bsides and bad ideas that got left off se dice. i totally understand that the caliber of plaing is much higher, but im just not feeling whats being played.
also, alot of omars soloing doesnt sound like his signature weird/cool sounding stuff. the knee deep song makes me think of power cosmic 2000 pt 2 by joe satriani, and again, the whole album sounds like omar took lessons from steve vai and satriani.
i hope after a couple more listens i can dig it.
