either there were tons of fairy dust in the air or these guys had their pockets full with shrooms when they were recording the sentinel back in 2005.. I cannot think of another record that puts my mind at ease like this one.. I'm glad that it never seems to grow old.. especially since their other stuff kinda bored me..
Last.fm needs to implement a way to differentiate bands so they each have their own separate pages for each particular artist and their particular genre. They obviously could do this and they have revenue coming in from premium accounts, ads and being owned by the CBS broadcasting company. There isn't any excuse for this and it's getting old that you can't even find a band's page without having to sift through other artist's material to see certain stats.
They have the potential to be one of the most emotional & moving bands out here, I really hope they dont throw that away to gain mainstream favour. Explosions didnt have to, neither should Aerial have to.
The Japanese version of "Put it this way in headlines" includes a DVD. The DVD has every released Aerial video on it including new videos for songs on the album. The DVD also includes a mini documentary about the band that Aerial shot while on tour and in the studio recording the new album. And as if that wasnt enough you also get alot of bonus material like sideprojects. The combines CD/DVD is available in Japan only so you have to order it from Flake Records. We might get a very limited quantity to our webstore soon.
I think it was the talk of connecting back to music they did before The Sentinal that set people up for disappointment. On the new album i was expecting the next level to some of their best tracks like Yet recalls nothing & Time is on fire. About 6-7 listens in now and apart from Vacant dreamers which is definitely up there, the rest are just pleasant pop tracks. Nice break from the intensity of their best stuff, but i hope they do something different on the next release.
Aerial are touring Europe in February. Check out their new single + video for "Velvet light trap". The single is Free so spread the word + music!
