Instead of continuing crying over that Zeigeist is gone and thinking that Pearl Fiction isn't equally good, I like to think of the album Painted Wolf as Zeigiest second album. Many artists release one brilliant debut album that completely blows your mind and later follows up with something that's good but not as impressive, only to later release a third or forth album that surpasses all earlier works. Pearl Fiction is absolutely brilliant and it's just a question of time before he releases the greatest thing ever.
At first listen I thought "wow, this sounds almost exactly like Zeitgeist" Then I read about the artist and went "oh...". This is great, I was so sad when Zeitgeist split and I thought I'd never hear more songs like this. I hope Pearl Fiction will stay for a long time and release many albums filled with awesome tunes like this.
