I'm looking forward to more of your reviews Brendan. Aside from great reviews, I appreciate that you have the class to compliment other reviewers as well. Something this site could use a lot more of. Cheers.

Thanks, I appreciate that! I'm actually thinking of applying to become a genre collaborator pretty soon... I figure I've been a reviewer on here for quite a long time (all the way back since 2008 if we're counting my old account), so it only seems right to try and shoot for something higher

Oh snap, you didn't! Just when I thought it couldn't get better, you wax poetic on Souls At Zero that perfectly captured the music and dark mood of the album. Bravo, and well done Mr. B.

Haha, thank you! I'm kinda sad that the site doesn't accommodate the format (I had organized stanzas and everything) but it's all good.

Also, I have a Bjork one as well, but I'm gonna have to delete my rating for it first if I want to get it on the front page Smile

I really enjoyed Dougís review of Opethís Watershed. I hadnít registered that Heir Apparent had only harsh vocals either, until Doug pointed it out in the review.

Agreed. I think rogerthat got it absolutely spot on with his review of The Future Bites.

A really good review from A Crimson Mellotron on the Future Bites. But like many others, it reads like a 4 star review that only ends up with 3. Perhaps I'm reading too much into them. Regardless, it was excellent.

I loved Dougís Atheist review, which has made me want to listen to an album Iíve never even considered listening to. Thatís the power of a good review!

^ Hey thanks dude! I hope you enjoy it, it's been easily one of my most listened to albums this year and i've been playing it on a near daily basis for a couple months now, it just hasn't gotten old. The vocals took me a little while to adjust to, since they're a little different than what I was used to with Death and Opeth, so just a fair warning there Smile

Warning noted. In fact, thatís why Iíve never even considered listening to Atheist before. Iíve never been the greatest fan of harsh vocals, and thatís an understatement. But your review really highlights what Iím missing out on, because of my fear/aversion of the vocals. I think Iím ready to give this band a go. Whether or not I enjoy it, I canít be sure - but your review has definitely given me the push....

That's awesome to hear! At the end of the day, worst case scenario is that it's not your cup of tea. And if that's the case, i'm not gonna be offended, it's understandable haha.

I loved TCatís Kurushimi review. Iíve been a fan of the band for some time. I canít remember now, but I think they were the first band I heard from the Art As Catharsis label. So many great bands on that label. Iíve not ever looked to see how many are in PA, but Kurushimi are definitely not the only ones deserving to be included. Hopefully TCatís review will prompt some to check out the band, and others on the label.

Thanks Nick.  One of these days I hope to check out more bands on that label.

A really good run of reviews lately from TCat, SillyPuppy, VianaProghead and a new chap who goes by the name of LuisM. Great reviews on great albums ranging from The Amazing Blondel to Dream Theater to KayoDot. Clap
