So just shut your face and take a seat, 'cause after all, we're just talking meat. And music?

Well, it's just entertainment, folks.

Cheers!

By the way, you asked on my site about older material. Here is an old recording of Toby from the Ten Ways album so that you have an idea of what the album was like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksIIPsS5hGg

:shock: Sweet Christ, that is awesome. If that can get re-recorded on better equipment, I think it would be absolutely amazing.
Also, I have not had a chance to listen to DtS yet. I downloaded it, but I've been kind of busy today. I'll probably get time later tonight.

Alright, I just got the chance to listen to Dedicated to Science. I'm not going to write anything as detailed as I did for Revelations, but instead, say what I need to in as few words as possible. First, I find the vocal performance on this much, much preferable to that on Revelations. It matched the mood of the music a lot better, but you still got a good chance to show off your vocal range. The songwriting was a little less complex than on Revelations, but that's definitely not a bad thing, because the simpler compositions allow for the songs to build on themselves a little more without tripping over being too complex (which was definitely not something that happened with Revelations, but something I was a little afraid might happen here). While I usually don't focus on lyrics too much when listening to something for the first time, I couldn't help but notice that the lyrics to "Corrupt" were a little awkward. I can't remember exactly what parts I found weird, but I made a little note about it in my head :P . I also found the songwriting on the first four songs a little bland in terms of songwriting, but everything from "Den of Roses" all the way to the end had something that I could really get behind in every song, whether it be the vocals, instrumentation, or lyrics. This is honestly something I can see myself listening to multiple times, because there's a lot to like about some of the later songs. I particularly enjoyed Little Voice and Final Cliche, and I really can't say there were any songs on this that I really disliked. Really, this was just plain a good album.

Cheers! Nice to have such a review :D Mind if I steal some quotes from your reviews for advertising purposes? :P

Oh, and I'm working on recording the Mirror next. Should be two to three weeks before it's finished. Then I'll move onto Ten Ways, and then I'll finish with the new double album. :)

Yeah, go ahead! I'd appreciate it if you mentioned my name or something, but if you don't want to, that's fine, too.
