  • It's kind of funny how we are always discovering good music, but the real good stuff was right in front of us the whole time.
  • ARP has best live albums i've ever heard ;) Love them all
  • still number one \\m/
  • Great band, Forever Angel is a fucking awesome ballad song :3
  • The Ballads!!!!!
  • Great new album!
  • New album sounds as much ARP as ever, but it is a bit lousy in my opinion. It's wrong, in Pell's case, to accuse the man of the lack of ideas (because every album has the same type of songs, with the same hooks, in almost the same order anyway :D), but this time those songs just weren't as good as they were on, say, Circle of the Oath and The Crest. Also, the only thing that's changed is the drum sound and the drumming - well duh, since drummer has changed. And if someone pointed me with a gun and made me say which album has the best Johnny Gioeli vocals, I'd have to say The Masquerade Ball, although the man has managed to sound almost identical for 15 years now. There is no him on the verge of breaking his voice anymore, but he's otherwise as flawless and awesome as ever. Good album, sounds as Pell as possible, but the songs we have seemingly heard many times in recent years weren't as good this time. Rondinelli's drumming (hits lighter? Or just different skins?) didn't help much.
  • You know an ARP album by the headphone-popping loud production.
  • Hmm... The number of scrobbled songs by AXP seem to be decreasing in my library. I had over 400plays last week. Today it's just 361. Wierd.
