No reactions, really? Guess I should start making crappier music again. :P
Damn, I didn't realize you were getting no luv. I'm about to go to bed, but I'm going to try my hardest to remember to listen tonight. I still remember the stuff I heard last year, so I'm looking forward to it.

It's just sort of there. I pretty much live in the middle of nowhere, but it would be wrong to say there's no music scene at all.
There's a lot of support for local bands in nearby towns, with them organising events to give new people an opportunity to get out there.
The only problem is that most of the bands kind of suck, they either have this awful droning Kings of Leon thing going on or are just generic pop punk.
A couple years back when I was in high school, there were some pretty decent punk bands (I was in one), but I think most of those people cleared out to the north as soon as possible because the music scene is much better there.
So I listened...what can I say? The thing is just fucking awesome.
It's so hard to give criticism when something is well-done. I usually resort to production tips if the songs themselves are good, but from top to bottom, this is a great album, technically and creatively. Professional shit, man. My favorites were Change, Within, Bound for Glory, and World.
Everyone whom I've managed to force to listen to the album seems to like World a lot. It's not one of my favourites though... goes to show you how good artists are at judging their own work. :P
Carnival of Monsters has Pretty Hate Machine vibe all over the place, the raw simplicity of sound (both structure and effects) and lyrics (well, as much as I got into them), just like in PHM. Pretty damn enjoyable stuff, not sure whether it will feel interesting for a while or will burn itself quickly, though. What I wished was better is your voice, it feels like it isn't up there with music, but that's the only thing I would say something bad about. Keep it up.
Before you speak think about what you're trying to say.
Who else is there to blame for miscommunication?
A listener! \o/
Well, thanks for the PHM reference. I've always had a lot of NIN-based inspiration, but I mostly don't get quite as dark as whatever Trent Reznor cooks up. So I guess if I still manage to remind someone of a NIN album, then I'm doing good!
I also get that you wouldn't like my voice as much as the rest. It's never been the most powerful part of me. :P
