Of the Green Carnation Albums, and I like Doom metal, so do not take me wrong when I state that I love the Light Of Day,Day Of Darkness Album the absolute best! That one Track Album is a Musical Masterpiece that is a full Hour in length! It is the only Album I have by them but I have heard their other material as well but, Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness will always be my favorite! I have not heard any In The woods Albums yet but sooner or lat I will give them a shot since I know that they are a part of the history of Green Carnation. I never knew that till when I saw this Green Carnation profile.
Not sure if I like Journey to the End of the Night yet. There's some great ideas and I can tell it was inspired, but the female vocals don't do anything for me, there's some gutiar brickwalling, the lyrics seem a bit melodramatic and among the good parts in the extremely long tracks, there is meandering. The song structures are interesting and I like the male vocals/bass only parts for dynamics, though, so time shall tell. Maybe I should have started with Light of Day, Day of Darkness...

Once I happened to listen to their very first album, or better to say demo: Hallucinations of Despair...just once. :) Otherwise they are a musical satisfaction to my ears. Such a wonderful band, it's a shame that they are not together anymore. Besides, Kjetil is a very underrated vocal imho. He may sound not so different or extraordinary at first but he gives a unique taste to songs, in every group he sang/sings.
I mean the structure of the entire song. I don't know how I could explain better than this, but, if you have listened to the song, you know what I mean. However, the way she sings is also quite annoying, at least for me.
I'm not exactly a Green Carnation Fan - I've had LoD,DoD since late 2006 but only passively listened to it a handful of times over the years. I got A Blessing in Disguise more recently, within the past year, but never gave it a chance because the opening always turned me off. Recently, however, I've decided to sit through that and hear the rest of the album out of lack of anything better to do and I have to say I've been enjoying it quite a bit. I'm looking forward to hearing their other albums and giving LoD,DoD a proper few listens.
Hey a question for you all... Do you think the album is actually called "The Acoustic Verses" or just "Acoustic Verses" ??? The Album cover says "Acoustic Verses" but the CD itself says "The Acoustic Verses" as does sublifeproductions.com. Thoughts?
