I really, really dislike the last part of Aftermath. It reminds me of a shitty ballad you'd send in as an entry for Eurovision

Got mine in the mail just now! I'm nervous based off of most of your guys' reactions, but I'm hoping it's at least better than TR (right?).

 

Tip: Just listen to it from the start. Don't stop to check the board. Just listen and chill.

 

Then re-listen. Then come here

I don't think the piano part in The Globalist is too long. It really builds towards the end, and gets big in a way that Explorers never did.

 

Sucks that the rock part was cut so short though.

YOU WILL HATE HALF OF IT. No, seriously, you probably will. The main thing is to relax and try the songs you don't like again. I promise you now, a lot of it is grower material.

For me, it's my favorite material after Absolution/Origin/BH&R

 

but overall, I think it's the best album because it won't make me want to skip any of the tracks.

Man all you Globalist bashers! Yeah that end isn't fantastic, but have fun crying yourselves to sleep listening to CE whilst the rest of us are moshing! Life's too short :LOL:

8,5/10 [JFK] - Very very very nice transition from The Handler to Defector.

9/10 Defector - Loving the vocals and also the heaviness.

6,5/10 Revolt - Chorus was a bit meh.. at first. Now getting into it more after a few listens.

9/10 Aftermath - Freaking beautiful song. Really digging the guitarwork there.

8,5/10 The Globalist - Like everyone else is saying, the heavy bit should have been a bit longer. When the riff kicked in with backing vocals it gave me a Steven Wilson vibe :) But overall a lovely 10-min experience.

8/10 Drones - I was very looking forward hearing that acapella song of Matt. The song gave me the feeling of ending an epic adventure. That's what Matt's intention really was, so nicely done.

Cut the last section out from Globalist and added a bit of fadeout.. it's almost perfect now (well, ends a bit too fast but at least with fadeout it's not so sudden). Shame theres nothing to be done with the rest of the songs tho...

 

Could you possibly PM me your edit?

Okay, I'm going to pretend like the album ended after The Handler, and go to sleep. The biggest question for me though is how on earth can Matt think that this is their best album with this second half? :stunned:
