I've been reading some of the opinions expressed by others on this thread.
First of all: I must say I've been quite surprised at reading that so many consider RR the less good album or even a "not-so-good" album (and, on the other hand, I was surprised that some have been reacting in a bad way to those who were bringing critical opinons: I believe every opinion has its dignity, if it's well argumented. And it's good to listen to different opinions, because it's just impossible that something is liked by everyone)
Anyway, for me, I must say that I've adored the whole cd from the very first listening. The "first impression" has been even better than those I'd had with previous cds.
Before listening to RR I was thrilled but also somehow "afraid
", because many times, with other bands, it's happened to me to like their first albums and to be quite disappointed at the 3rd, or round there.
But when "More
" started.. I just could not believe it
All I could think was "WOW!
And this is what I've been thinking of most of the tracks.
" just thrilled me: it was quite unexpected.. and I love its sound, and I love Marko's voice on it.
I don't think they have changed too much their style.. and even if they have, I'm definitively not complaining
I'm one who usually prefers fast/heavy songs
It doesn't happen that often to me to love an album from the very first listening; not only hadn't it disappointed me (which was what I feared), but I was (and still am) TOTALLY ENTHUSIASTIC with this album: I could not listen to anything else (except SoL and CoR
I think WDWDTL at the end is just as perfect as it can be: first because I like the fact that they use a calm, meaningful song to close their albums; second because this is particularly beautiful, and it really grew on me, as I was listening and by the end I was already sooo singing it along..
what more... the songs I like most are Passion colors everything
and Where do we draw the line
. Right after in my list are More
The only song I like less is the title track, Revolution Roulette
whoa, you never realize how mad you are about an album until you write about it
