    You got Ki yet?

    If so, thoughts?

    Yep, I got it on Friday and have managed to have one listen all the way through and I think it'll take a bit of getting used to. Some of the songs seem pretty quiet, with not much going on, or with slow build-ups. I'm a bit impatient though, so I need to take more time and listen to it a few times before I judge it. There are some lovely guitar bits and 'Trainfire' sticks out at the moment for me. In fact, I'm going to have another listen through now, lol.

    Out of the next three to be released, I'm looking forward to the second and third (the 'heavier than anything he's ever done' one and the 'rock' one) to see what he comes up with.

    He's also been working with Anneke van Giersbergen (formally of The Gathering) and she's been doing some vocals on his songs, so that could turn out quite nice.

    What do you two think?

    I've had mixed feelings with it so far. Some excellent songs, especially some of the middle tracks, when at one point he sounds like Elvis, then goes into Opera. That's our Devy.

    Defo looking forward to Deconstruction. If it's REALLY heavier than anything he's ever done, I'll be happy cos I feel starved of SYL.

    I've just started listening to Addicted. Starting off pretty well. Very DTB rather than SYL.

    Aye, I've managed to get a copy and need to give it a few listens- it does remind me more of Infinity/DtB era. I like Annekes vocals on there too, to give a bit of contrast.

    I bought the deluxe package from his website- CD, poster, hoodie and artwork by Dev for $50- not bad at all!
