    Here's what I now think of the albums I detailed in my post entitled New Forays:

    R. Borlax

    Fantastic, but hardly as good as The Mechanical Hand. They're far more obnoxious sounding, and the songs are much less infectuous and playful. For a debut album, it's a lot of fun, but it still feels like a debut album. Fave tracks: Bunnies, Seven Tentacles and Eight Flames

    Bergtatt - Et eeventyr i 5 capitler

    Speaking of debuts from my favorite bands.... I do believe this is disappointment #2. It is beautiful at times and gloriously aggressive at other times, but it's hardly the inquisitive, courageous music that I love hearing from them now. You can blame my current lack of appreciation for black metal, I guess. I do love that first track though, I troldskog faren vild

    Mabool

    Being so highly recommended by my friend AjaxHunter, I decided to check them out, and... thanks, dude! They're like a middle-eastern Opeth, a statement which belittles their off-kilter but extrememly originality. …
