Title: New Songs Rock!
Post by: palhoto on April 02, 2004, 01:08:11 am
Just to contradict another thread with the opposite meaning :P.

These songs really rock :). Very melodic and fast-paced, what I've always enjoyed in Machinae. Just loved the Player One opening, fabulous 8). I'm ordering 2 CDs.

The lyrics have interesting stories and meanings behind them, in time we'll pick them all out.

The Player One tab is also a great asset. I hope Machinae releases more tabs when the album comes out.

Machinae, great job! Keep it up!

Chill,

Great songs!

At the start of the "player one", it feels like standing in a high hill, bowing to the blurry night and for the stars.

Sorry, I am a visualist. It's easy for me to feel all kinds of feelings and create a visual image from them. Thanks for releasing new songs!

Player One surely kicks some ass  :) . Not so sure about Super Steve yet...  


PS: That drumkit that they released is AWESOME   :) .
Title: Music Quality
Post by: palhoto on April 02, 2004, 02:08:30 am
The recording quality is better than the non-album songs. If you're one of those people who'd listen to Machinae frequently, you can feel a strange cristal clearity which wasn't present before. Great studio work there.

Rob's voice is also better, it blends more fluidly into the music. The background vocals fill in the void quite sucessfully.

Start dissecting the songs and you'll start understanding the amount work, creativity and enthusiasm put behind them.

Fabulous guys, I really hope you get the success you deserve.

I can't do anything else than agree with you guys! I found the new songs very "electric" and "magnetic" and with sound quality in every good possible ways!  :D :D :D I am sooo longing to be able to listen to the other new songs!!

This morning I was awaiting for a update impatiently and was dissapointed.. Then tonight I realized I had to empty my cache  :-X  

After few listens I love the new songs.. They are not in my favorite machinae songs top-5 but near it..

I would have ordered the album already but I don't have a credit card and the other options were.. sounding scary. I want to pay the money in the post office, whatever that method is called or to have an account transfer ticket with the CD or something.. Damn I know nothing and I'm supposed to be good in English.

I will use my fathers credit card if he allows it but he goes away for a few weeks now  :-\

Eh, I know I haven't been posting too much lately, but I have been keeping up on reading posts here. With these two new songs out, I feel I must log on to same something.

OMG yes! I love both songs, and of course i've been planning to preorder all along. =) You guys rock!

They're in the discography section, not in downloads.
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: Bates on April 02, 2004, 05:23:04 pm
I like them both, but "Player One" a little more...

"Player One" has this instant Machinae feeling (Freedom, Energy, ...guess you get the picture  :)). From melody, construction and lyrics I'm convinced that it is a sequel to "Arcade" and keeps up with it quite easily.

"Super Steve" is interestingly different and undoubtedly one of those tracks that get better the more you hear it. The lyrics are great too, though I didn't figure out the meaning or intention yet...  :)
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: robert on April 02, 2004, 07:09:06 pm
I guess you could say that super steve is about flipping the hierarchy of society, and putting yourself above those the outside world has outrank you.

Something like that, anyway... :)

"The fire" is the negative remarks and condemnation of others. The walls of perception are the mental confines we are nurtured into by the media and alike as we grow up.

Oh, and yeah ... Player One was previously named Player One (Return to Arcade); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES so yeah...  :)

They're very different from the non-album songs.
I like Super Steves sid 'riff'

Not a fan on the ding,ding,ding-ding , smack , smack, smack, smack, smack  etc bit :)
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: Relocator on April 03, 2004, 03:15:45 am
Super Steve is an awesome song.

But I think I like Player One a bit better... maybe because I heard it first  ;D, or maybe because the intro is so fucking majestic!
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: Smeagol on April 03, 2004, 03:48:46 pm
yeah ok i got player one and super steve and i gotta agree with most of the posts here that player one is a better song...sounds more like the machinae everyone is used to
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: Lomion on April 03, 2004, 07:05:42 pm
Just listened to the new ones yesterday. Not much to say here, they're great. Liked the "now I feel like that again" homage to Arcade.

"Super Steve" is the funk! Just heard it once by now. Was on the streets then, sounded like good original lyrics, I'll have to relisten to them.
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: SomethingApt on April 04, 2004, 02:15:52 am
OMG OMG OMG! am i like, the only person who thought that super steve was like the best song in the world EVER!!!

ITS FOOKIN AWESOME! player one was darn good, but super steve completely blew me away! i'm ordering the album as soon as i can steal someone's credit card!

 ;D :D ::) :P ;)
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: chompy on April 04, 2004, 03:16:35 am
Well I'll say this, the more I listen to the news ones the more I like it. These songs must of the been the easiest songs for me to get to like. I say this because the first songs I ever downloaded of MaSu I never liked them. But I did leave them on my mp3 list and it did cycle through them so after time it grew on me.

Every time I hear Deus Ex Machinae I want to play the music from the original Deus Ex game. (got it on my playlist):

The intro to Super Steve alone is reason enough to buy the CD.
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: beldimus on April 04, 2004, 09:11:23 am
damn. Im just listening "super steve" as im writing this.
First thing I thought about it when i listened to it... was... dare I say... well actually i was terrified then, after that I've listened for it a few times, and I LOVE the song!
Why everything good comes from Sweden?  :)

Player One is a little bit weird. But still a great song.
Im ordering the album with my friends, 10 satisfied customers to be expected. :)

Oh wow!

I just started downloading the two prereleases cos i had trouble before (thanks to Bloodangel for showing me how to right click>>Save target as... - i'm so stoopid)
I gotta say I LOVED Player One. It was fantastic and I really don't understand why some people have a problem. I gotta hear it again.

As for Super Steve - it's currently downloading. But I couldn't wait for that to say how amazing Player One is. My verdict on Player One will come soon.
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: Laser.T on April 06, 2004, 11:55:15 pm
I just listened to Super Steve.

This was great too - a bit harder to get used to, but by the end of the song I was loving it. Player One is better though. I'm listening to them both repeatedly now.

Can't wait for album!

Post by: Outboundlight on April 07, 2004, 12:58:06 am
I have to admit, thanks to the two prerelease tracks im more excited about this album then I have been about any other

(and your talking to the guy who stayed up late to watch the "Countdown to your escape" counter count down to zero on the In Flames web site...)

Post by: doomyGIRdoom on April 07, 2004, 05:14:13 pm
the sid sounds of super steve have me hooked.  

but the grand choral-ish intro to player one has this erie majestic quality to it that i need to hear again and again.  

i have NEVER and will NEVER pay $20 for a single cd.
that being said i NEED to buy the new cd (at $22USD)

MUST HAVE MORE MACHINAE!!!!

Post by: Jusargh on April 07, 2004, 06:40:28 pm
IMO Player One is one of the best MaSu song ever. I don't really unterstand how anyone, who liked the older songs, could hate this. It's 100% Machinae Supremacy song.

Super Steve is a good song too, especially chorus is really moody and melodic. Nice one.
Title: Re:New Songs Rock!
Post by: Spiff on April 08, 2004, 02:09:27 am
Well, like I said in the other thread, I first listened to Player One. The intro was awesome, the song unfolded in an equally great way (I always read the lyrics while listening to a new song); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES and the chorus was incredible. I think the lyrics are easy to remember, which is good.

The first part of Super Steve was a little odd at first (where he sings); INSERT INTO yabbse_messages (ID_MSG, ID_TOPIC, ID_MEMBER, subject, posterName, posterEmail, posterTime, posterIP, smiliesEnabled, modifiedTime, modifiedName, body, icon, attachmentSize, attachmentFilename) VALUES but then the chorus came and blew me away! There's alot of "drive" and melodic feeling in it. Then I started liking the rest of the song, too.

I also preordered the CD a few days ago... woohooo! :D Keep up the good work guys, it's evident that you've spent alot of time and effort on this album.

i LOVE player one, i cannot wait until i get the CD, its not music, its art, pure talent.  This is the only CD ive ever wanted to buy, because i know ill love all the songs instead of a single hit.  I cant wait till future CD's come out.  Machinae and castlevania remixes is all i listen to, if it werent for you guys all id have is ocremix.org :P
