    до второго альбома, сколько раз закачивал на телефон, так и не добрался. А вот первый очень хорош, простой такой синти-поп, но с цепляющими мелодиями и прекрасным вокалом. Counterpoint, Submission и Halcyon - замечательные вещи. В Counterpoint вообще два аккорда на 6 минут - гениально.

    I hope it won't take them so long to release a new album as it took from Acolyte to Collections.

    New album is quite different, but that's why I like Delphic. [2]

    Your opinion Punk-Fiction, doesn't render a perfectly sound album "incompetent". You're in good company if you don't like Collections as much, many people don't, and it's quite apparent. Saying that it's insulting to the band's previous works is asinine however, and you're personally not in a position to make such a judgement. Hell, I don't like Collections as much as Acolyte, but Delphic is entitled to their own artistic pursuits, which they exercised in making a different sort of album. It's fair to say that you dislike it, but it's not fair to make objective and overly-harsh statements. Music is rarely objective.

    Their perfomance in Astrakhan was stunning thanks a lot <3 P.S. "Atlas" is especially cool *_*

    Just because Collections sounds different from Acolyte doesn't grant it instant competency, it's ridiculously boring and an insult to the talent they've displayed in the past.

    Devin Townsend's new album includes and features pop influences and styles. Pop has it's place in modern music, and always will. People bitching about Collections just don't care for pop music, which is fine. But it's inherently no better or worse then Acolyte. YOU just don't like it as much.
