Post Re: Mesmur - "S"

it very much heralds all Solitude Prods' idiosyncrasies; I don't think I need that record, how ever good it might be, and actually is (I feel it's a bit dragging every so often though)

The name of the graphic designer is quite amusing, Cadaversky. ( from "cadavre exquis" if you didn't notice :D)

Found it a bit "unfocussed"... :)

Maybe, although I'd probably consider that more of a simple prerequisite for Prog-style digressions. You'll still have to put up with being on my "albums of the year" list, when that comes around, though :D

We don't interfere in any band's creative process
so all the releases is the the vision of musicians

Btw. the band told us that the main influence for this album (from prog) is Universe Zero

I like this. It passed my time-saving-album-checking test - played it in the background while working and got interrupted several times due to some nice "wow" moments that take me out of whatever was focused on.

As a point of criticism I'm not too keen on the bass especially when it's more present in the mix.

Wow, this makes me curious. Univers Zero are great and a worthy influence indeed. I'll have to give this a listen ASAP; loved the debut, and the review sounds immensely promising.

I am starting to digest this album; I was wrong, this is better than what I felt upon first impression, it's more cahotic and dissonant on the whole than what I thought, something of Abstract Spirit in there, but not on par though. A bit dragging as I said.

yes, I still find it rather inconsistent...

So far, it hasn't clicked with me, either...
