My favourite song would probably be Skin because of that asian flute thingy. What is it called anyway?

If it's the same as in Oki Kumas Adventure, I guess it's shakuhachi.

I wants one. If Picard can make time to learn to play a flute while captaining a starship, I can to!

Ditto. I'm seriously consider buying one and learning to play as soon as I have the money to spare for it (they b rather expensive, tho :P)

Thank you, and from the hype i have seen, i look forward to my copy coming :) :) :)

Nice order MDX... don't expect the sid station though.  ;) And I guess the shipping on the keyboards would cost an awful lot.  :)

Hmph! Order cancelled!  >:D Yes well im plentiful in keyboards, but thank you for the kind thought Gordon. Just list the things i should get to easily achieve a great and easily modifiable SID sound, and all will be well. Failing that. The album should help me in my journey to SIDopia.

am I the only one who thinks Sid icaurs, although not strong, was well put together with lyrics? I mean is hard to put lyrics to a song that was designed as an instrumental, but rob did a good job with the lyrics there


it maybe not as strong as the rest of the album but it isnt a huge letdown

Hmm...can't really tell my opinion just yet. But first impression was... a little disappointment  :-X and no, not because of amount of SiD or something like that. IMO there simply wasn't any really memorable songs (like I Know the Reaper, TTLG, Elite, Reanimator, Oki Kuma, Rogue World Asylum, whole DXM etc...) that really hit you from the very beginning.

So far rockin' to Edge and Pearl. Skin sounds awesomely epic until the fast part hits in (OK, I got it off my chest now)

BUT I do like the way Rob has grown as a vocalist  :)


hmm, no songs at the star that arnt memorable? sorry I would have to isagree. 1st song I heard was truth of tomorrow, it actully hit me an made me go wow, then came vilator, and boy that hit me

I woulnt say the songs dont catch you, caus imo they do. then again, thats my own view and not everyone thinks alike


as for skin, you'll get used to that fast part :P

I still think Sid Icarus is one of the strongest songs on the album. It's just... mad energy!

I prefer DXM myself, but then that's for personal reasons (this album has played an important role in my life, hence why I love MS so much ;] ). Overworld is a brilliant album that will be playing in my cd player for a long time. The band has evolved, everythings getting better and the legion of fans is increasing everyday. Can't wait to put my hands on the CD itself! *waits by the mailbox*

See, THIS is a good argument! Stating that you like DXM more, because of personal reasons! Nice! :D

I would +1 you if I knew HOW! >_>

Hey, i'm sorry but i have to reply to this post.

What I said there is that I like DXM better than Overworld, but that it's not a rule, i'm not saying that dxm is better because of the songs themselves, but rather i like it more because of my personal life. in other words, in an unbiased review i'd say that overworld is the best machinae album so far (even if they're all great albums). now if you really want to know, dxm helped me getting over a sad moment in my life with it's bright lyrics and sound.

You misunderstood me. I didn't say that you thought DXM was better, I just restated that you like DXM more, for personal reasons. I praised your way of thinking, because people like to say that the old stuff was better and then give a bad reason, unlike you. I didn't have to know all the information, but still. :P

The +1 was for karma. :)

Sold my soul to santa and pre-ordered Overworld tonight!
Now I don't feel so bad about having downloaded it, and I'm looking forward to having my very own copy.  :angel:

I must admit that I prefered the gems in Webography above almost any song from the two previous albums, but Overworld is great. Every song gives me the awesome feeling of power and control that I get when I put Hero or Arcade on.
My personal favorites: Violator, Stand, Radio Future, Overworld and Sid Icarus (I already loved Flight of the Toyota and Megascorcher from JNG)

9/10
I seek only where to find you

That is why you mix it ALL together! ginormous playlist of all Machinae gives you a plentiful variety of different styles of SID Metal. I have always had troubles when ordering stuff online, I hope this shipment doesn't mess up like all the others :/

They're doing a complete overhaul of the site for the new album. It's been mentioned here a couple of times.
