excellent band, no heard yet but I have all of their other albums so Im sure ill pick this one up to.
yeah, minsk gets a 5 and this album...which is the most I think I've ever heard a band I liked regress in just about every aspect of their sound...gets an 8....gosh darn you, lambgoat.
Great band and great album. It is different from their older stuff but it doesn't matter because it's still amazing.
really, really sorry, boring, campy release by this band. and the drumming...seriously?
LOL @ Minsk getting a 5 and this an 8. webmaster needs to get his reviewing problems straight. this is pathetic.
I couldn't agree more with eadup. Minsk a 5 while this gets an 8? The riffs aren't that creative, the drumming sucks and this band gets worse with every cd
You gave MOTA a 9 and this an 8? Stick to building couch forts and leave the reviewing to the professionals.
The problem isn't that the drumming isn't creative. The problem is that he's too wooden, misses fills, and seems like he's a step behind at crucial junctures.
"Stick to building couch forts." I think I just crapped my pants after reading that. And I actually like this album. I think THE FIRE IN OUR THROATS... is better as a whole, though. Albums aside, Pelican will destroy you live; their amps go to 11.
while its no austrailasia this album is right behind it. (well behind their self titled ep). i cant see how anyone could say that the riffs arent creative. its the perfect mix of pelican. definitely worth the 12 bucks.
yeah the drumming alone takes off 5 points. that guys sucks in ever band he plays in. that one fill in the first song sounds like its played by a 5 year old.
Just because the drumming isn't as technical as other bands of this genre doesn't mean it's bad. Every instrument in this band mesh perfectly together, as the guitars "would not benefit from overly showy and complex drumming."
Not saying the drums aren't technical. I am saying they are bad, as in, even for this style, they are f*cking TERRIBLE. That guy sucks at the overall at his instrument. There is no way to make excuses for it. Plus the writing is boring.
please, for the love of pssy, get a new f*cking drummer!
overrated. nothing will ever top the march into the sea ep. im bored with them.
Not a bad record, but "Fire In Our Throats..." will always be their pinnacle, in my opinion.
i think that more then one reviewer should review each album.. and give their seperate scores so we can see each reviewers opinion. People like different music
seems like some have read the pitchfork review
i think pitchfork and lambgoat accidentally switched their reviews.
Dudes need to get a new drummer...and you don't need to be educated at Julliard or even a drummer to understand that Herwig's drumming sucks and almost ruins what's good about this record and band!
thank you webby for not having that douche cory review this its nice to read a review that actually discusses the album and isn't filled with literary masturbation
the heavy parts sounds like korn. seriously, this album is boring by pelican's standards. no listen again ever.
Everyone knows that when a band stops being heavy that they no longer matter. Satan does not want to hear spacey melodic pssy drone rock with mediocre drums. He wants breakdowns. He told me that on the phone the other day. Nick, in the midst of trying to relive the junk food laden, roller coaster riding, short shorts rampage of a childhood he never had, has lost sight of what metal is truly about; blood guts gore sacrifices f*cking whores on fire debauchery and f*cking macabre. Nick averages 1
so boring live now better than the fire in our whatever but pretty forgettable still
most overrated band out there....other than mastodon, that is.
Oh my!! I guess I've been more of a pig than I knew!! I've eaten hot asses with one or two of those warts!! Never occurred to me it was little more than normal hole usage!! lol!! Can you pick up anything orally from them?? Not like it's a problem, but would like to know!! Maybe I'll get even harder eating them in the future!! That would be difficult since I've blasted a load or 3 in my shorts eating a hot butt!! One ex-porno star got me worked up so much, I blew in it my jock before he could get
metalmike had some good points.. but as far as what you thing metal is about thats just all wrong dude. f*ck this devil worshiping bullshit. YOURE enforcing negative stereotypes. f*ck Stereotypes
lol @ this review and all bands like this.
