I have been an immense fan of this band since their very first releases (especially The Jester's Race and Whoracle were/are true masterpieces in my humble opinion). Yet what the fuck happened with them ? I mean just 2 days ago I have seen a live video of theirs in their trendy white overalls, their singer dreadlocked (Nu Metal anyone ?) and wearing this shirt wityh a huge slogan saying "Sellout" on it... I mean ok I am also into humour n all yet this wasnt funny at all I think... You can "blame" it on the well known scheme of "evolution" yet if we look at them in a strictly musical perspective they have lost all the brilliant atmosphere and moods of their previous releases. Instead of the fantastic awe inspiring folk-influenced leads and riffing paired with an intense and lived way of bringing it to the audience now we have the 10000th generic band playing jumpy and entertaining ùmusic... Their last album was well done and a good album indeed yet it lacks every sparkle of magic their older stuff had... They may have increased in fan base and groovy/catchy/trendiness yet they have lost quite a lot of feeling and emotion (isnt this what true art and music is all about) underway... What do you guys think ?
