00:03 - Korah Yeah, MS ratings on new albums are totally f****ed! You just have to watch ratings from 2000 and ratings from 2016! Metal was'nt so much better than today releases.
23:53 - Czerny Reiter There's a dearth of reviewers on the site and most of what gets reviewed ends up getting a good grade (on the grounds that pro-bono reviewers mostly review what appeals to them).
23:48 - Overrwatcher I feel as if SSUS's review backlash is a perfect example of this. When he gave a 2/10 people didn't say much. When he gave a 9/10 people questioned his review integrity.
23:42 - Overrwatcher I will always bring up BMTH's "There Is A Hell" in this regard. Very well received literally everywhere but MS. Here it's one of the lowest rated albums in the database.
23:38 - Overrwatcher Bands can put out similar quality records to 10 years ago yet get over 1 point less. People have been much more negative recently. And MS also seems to shit on some albums at random.
Exivious, and fusion music in general is to be taken slowly. Enjoying it bit by bit, until you are able to take in the full picture. I always have to remind myself of this simple fact, otherwise I'd turn to some other, more straightforward music. With this in mind, maybe you are already planning to skip this one - though I'd advise you not to, especially if you're new to fusion/jazz metal music.
Fair enough, it has nothing on the debut release. Still bloody brilliant. Triguna (orgasmic distorted guitars and drum solo at the end has this song frequently on repeat) and One's Glow and Deeply Woven stand out to me, Immanent, too. I don't think there's a weak song on this album. 9 for me.
