SoL was more interesting to listen to than CoR. There is more pure magic on SoL than on CoR, especially in the transitions from the second chorus to the C-parts of any song (as in first verse A - chorus B - second verse A - chorus B - solo/transition C-part - chorus B).
For God's sake...
Hey, it's all good, even if you just quoted a select part from my post
But just stating "For God's sake" isn't actually very helpful and polite. Feels more like censorship is lurking around the corner, but that's probably not the case.
I don't think my comment was overtly negative, I was simply stating my opinion which doesn't have to embraced by anyone else. I just feel there were was more magic on SoL, interesting details and chord changes which always managed to surprise you and give you goosebumps on every listen
. For me, that was rare in the case of CoR.
What I also was trying to say is that it's really been bugging me for a long time that I haven't been able to enjoy CoR as an album from start to finish
as much as I loved SoL. I would've wanted to love CoR just as much, but honestly I couldn't.
I buy a lot of records from many different genres all the time which are fighting for my attention -- as Ollie, jef83 and some other board members know very well -- still SoL was hands down the album which got most spins from me during 2005. I bought several copies of SoL which I shipped abroad just to spread the word. Gave some copies of SoL as birthday presents in Finland as well.
Sorry if any offence was taken by anyone. That was not my intention.
During the same session I wrote my original message (which was quoted by POTF_Admin) I noticed that tickets for the upcoming gig at Tavastia were just being listed at the club site and I shared that piece of information instantly in the Finnish gig thread (Keikoista (FIN)).
What else? I'm all ears for any new stuff POTF come up with. Maybe tomorrow is a better day?
