SYNTH AND GUITAR YERRR

Ouch, midi brass...captain comedown has arrived.

Oh good its gone, replaced by quite good progression...this guitar needs to get doing some more though...

Hmmm....quiet bit...didn't feel as though it built up enough to really need a comedown like this, lets see where it goes... a piano break...with flamenco feel? Waaaat?

GUITARS COME BACK IN HELL YES! OMINOUS NOISES! CLASHING! WHAMMY SCREAMS! YAY!

OK now its trying to sound imperious but its failing because of their samples limitations...more guitar...very baroque here. Breaking down into...

Synth part in 6/4...not tremendously interesting and these low rent samples are starting to bug me...

nothing interesting going on just more buildup... more buildup... etc. I am now at 5:22

More imperiousness, not very big sounding compared to what came before so the effect is largely lost.

FINALLY! Some faster bits! The tempo was ruining my day!

And then nothing, and back to the same tempo...why didn't that part last longer? It was the best bit so far! More boring synth rubbish!

Drums kick back in...not really doing anything for me here... guitar solo is weakly produced... that awful midi brass is back...

UGH, and the ULTIMATE COPOUT - ENDING ON A FADE INSTEAD OF FINISHING THE SONG.

Overall - 6/10 composition, 3/10 production.

Would not illegally stream again.
they're sorta like Japanese Dream Theater but their melodies are based on Jap RPG music

Cool. They're one of my favs. Also really like them because apparently they all have day jobs (ones a teacher one might be a lawyer or something I don't know). The only one who does music full time is the drummer, which is amazing when you consider how amazing they are. A friend of mine told me that the bass player actually started playing bass when he joined the band for the first time. The other members have been teaching him bass as they make more albums. Two Moons is the newest of their albums, and by this time the bass is pretty good :P
