I've listened to Alive in new light quite a few times now and still think it's mostly weak material and a 2/5 album ..maybe a 2.5 'cause I love the title track and mile deep hollow. This is the first IAMX release that I don't think i'll be buying unless i see a copy going cheap. Glad most people seem to be enjoying though - Chris is very underappreciated!
I absolutely love the new record. "Big Man" is the only weaker moment but it's not bad either. "The Power and the Glory", "Break the Chain" and "Mile Deep Hollow" are my favorites of it. Album of the year so far.
enjoying the new album on first listen, some of the vocals seem really strained though like he's trying hit notes that are uncomfortably high? Not an attack on his voice in general though which is great
блин, AINL, мать его, мощный весьма.
но есть два фактора, которые не делают его самым мощным : 1) нету взрывного, крышесносящего трека наподобие No Maker Made Me ; 2) мало. вроде бы 9 треков достаточно, но ИМХО, маловато будет. Stardust, Break The Chain - топ.
p.s. после полного прослушивания альбома почему-то тянет слушать часами Volatile Times. вот такие тараканы в голове Х)
"Unfall" sounds like the kind of thing you'd be "listening" to very late at night in some not well-known club. Which makes me presume that the whole album would be better appreciated if one would have already had their share of booze beforehand. Maybe I'll try just that.
I fucking love this man ok. There's something so special about him, like, I recently became a fan but it was almost instantly after I first listened to his music and watched some interviews, i felt like he's so honest and true to himself and his music is so meaningful it was impossible for me not to become a fan so fast, he's truly one of a kind
