Hi, I'm at work and didn't have time to read through the whole thread, but I just wanted to briefly pop in to say the following: I never thought it possible, but I think EOTW might actually be better than RUE. Which is saying quite a lot, coming from me. By far my favourite songs are probably Persona (absolutely love the lyrics!), Rocket Dragon and The Show.

So a big thanks to MaSu for this album, it was well worth the wait!

Anyway, back to work, carry on! :)

I hereby compile my review of the latest album to one sentence:

Jizz in my pants.

There, now bugger off. :)

I'm glad that I wasn't the only one.

Just posting up my own review here.

http://www.notquiteliterally.com/?p=156

I'm impressed.

And here is a tl;dr for everyone from the end:

In short, remember that feeling that you got when you first picked up an SNES controller? Yeah. This album is just like that.


Well put.
Oi, is this when I get a huge sig-image, start whining about "moar sid" and make nonsensical arguments to no good?

Really like the album, songs that have stuck with me most so far are Rocket Dragon, Crouching Camper, Indiscriminate Murder. Overall, I feel the latter part of the album is the stronger one.

Will likely have this on repeat in my media player for the next month or so.

After intensive listening I can say it's the best Machinae album for me. It's as fun and varied as Deus Ex Machinae but the song writing is better and there's lots of SID. Redeemer and Overworld felt somehow too "safe" as great as they are too. The new album has many top Machinae songs and some of Roberts best lyrics. My fave tracks are quite different than others here seem to prefer. Force Feedback, Persona and Shinigami. Force Feedback has epic SID, epic solo, great lyrics and additional female vocals. Persona again has some of Rob's best lyrics, great melancholic atmosphere and melodies. To me it feels like a combination of TTLG and Rise. Two faves from Redeemer. Shinigami is teh SIDgasm and very catchy. Surprised that not so many love it.

Action Girl is probably the song I like the least. Dunno why. Too soft? Not enough SID? and I'm gay? Cybergenesis also grows on me slowly.. but certainly.

I love this album so much I could explode.
