xp the greek king leonidas (historical) never fought the titans (mythical) though

Dawn's stuff feels pretty distinct from Dirty Money to me at this point -- if any 2 records risk crowding each other's space it's Golden Heart and Armor On

yeah i'm not pretending to be an expert. did frank miller invent that part of the myth though? xp

i think she threw those together just for the rhyme.

like that she interpolates both phil collins and peter gabriel over the course of the record, so i can just think of it as prog

at a couple of points there are these almost old-agey computer music stabs, an ancient-future music, then with the 300 deal, yes, what a progger would be mining these days, if they existed.

which they don't.

Proggers exist, but they think Dream Theater is hip and cutting edge.

man. i liked 86 but didn't love it in the context of it being the first single post-armor on.

but 3/4 of the way through GoldenHeart oh my goodness it's fucking devastating.

just finished and I'm not gonna play it again til it's released

but I will say that 'whiteout' seems to have been more predictive than we had thought, so allow me to say

the outro's really pretty as are other parts of this album but especially the outro

it's p hard to fuck up claire de lune tbh, probably the greatest song ever written (no lie)

outro is wonderful, seriously one of the most affecting and satisfying finales to an album i can recall i think

pure pure pure after-the-curtain-falls lonely spotlight schmaltz but so good

even its borrowedness is meaningful

the 'pretty wicked things'/'goldenheart' suite p much completely rejects this reading of dawn as mildly autistic fantasist

the sorrow for the "fallen tales" of the former, then the yearning once more for "white knights, white horses" of the latter is a prism you can read the entire album through

r|t|c, Monday, 14 January 2013 21:45 (1 year ago) Permalink

The final third of this album is fantastic, although I'm a bit underwhelmed by the rest, especially the first third. Think it's something to do with Dawn's vocal presence, like she's gone for for stateliness over the snap of Armor On and Tell Tale Heart. Like she sounds like she's floating over the top of the battle surrounded by a disc of light when on previous records she'd have been right in the fray.

'86 video. danity kane tribute or shade?

lex pretend, Tuesday, 15 January 2013 11:44 (1 year ago) Permalink

the album actually took several listens for me to really get my head around/into it (partly because i only had an unmastered copy for ages) but it was def the less in-your-face final third that took the most time for me to fall for.

i loved "bombs" and "automatic", but even on armor on, by the end of the ep you'd pretty much left them behind, and it would feel odd for similar songs with that hip-hop snap to be on goldenheart...

lex pretend, Tuesday, 15 January 2013 11:47 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah I'm definitely prepared for it to open up before me, but the final third clicked immediately, maybe because the vocal melodies are stronger. I'm kind of missing the rhythmic tricksiness of Armor On as well, a lot of this one is very... hymnal, even over the bangers. Northern Lights is great though.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 15 January 2013 11:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

there's so much going on rhythmically here though - all those handclaps interacting with the main rhythm line in so many of the tracks...

lex pretend, Tuesday, 15 January 2013 11:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

does anyone else have the problem that 'gleaux' just makes you want to go and listen to Last Train To Paris another eleven times? (i can only assume that's why pretty wicked things comes next, to keep you from wandering away)

my chemtrails romance (c sharp major), Tuesday, 15 January 2013 12:20 (1 year ago) Permalink

it would feel odd for similar songs with that hip-hop snap to be on goldenheart...

Why? There are some pretty in-your-face beats on the first half of the album, it's full of battle imagery.

I suppose the chorus of Pretty Wicked Thing encapsulates the sort of thing I'm getting at, there are several moments here where her vocal presence and melodies don't quite do justice to the force of the track (and the production is great throughout).

Matt DC, Tuesday, 15 January 2013 12:30 (1 year ago) Permalink

this album is fucking nuts, and also completely incredible

monotony, Tuesday, 15 January 2013 12:45 (1 year ago) Permalink

kind of curious to see how reviewers approach it, especially with the full-on commitment to the warrior motif, and the lack of pop / calling-card track to rally around

but like, the gauntlet for AOTY 2013 has well and truly been thrown down
