    Whats are your thoughts?

    i'm a massive fan
    but ive seen a lot of "i didnt like 'frances' and i dont like this.. comatorium was the best" going on

    personally i think the sound is getting more and more developed
    its almost psychadelic progressive rock now!

    love it.

    ps. the torrent is on piratebay for those who want it early. $20 of my cash will be used to purchase the album 22nd of next month anyhow!

    Although I loved the classic 'concept-album' sound of FTM, gotta say, it's a great listen. I listened thru really quickly a few times, but I dug what I heard. Love the 16 min track, though....

    I like the ambience sounds too, but when they're at the start of a song and last for 12 minutes then its annoying because you have to sit through all of that in order to hear actual music..

    Here's some more "I didn't like Frances" because honestly, they ruined it with their lyrics (if you can call them that)

    They come off a little too pretentious, considering that their fans pretend that they have just cause for how fucked up their music really is.

    If you haven't noticed, I hate their music with a passion. I hate them 9.5 on a scale of 1 to James Blunt.

    i was a little dissapointed at first, but after many listens, i can definately say this new album is catchy as shit. My only complaint is that its a little anti-climatic.

    :ugh: oh no, a band decides to make music that they want & feel instead of making music that sells! they must suck!

    i think the lyrics are unique and unlike any other band.... thats what makes them cool. and its a concept-album... if you are looking for straight-forward rock, listen to the radio :hsugh:
