Anyone heard this new album yet? I just got it and I’m sitting here listening through it. I’m about 3/4ths done and I’m a little disappointed so far. This may sound redundant coming from a Dragonforce fan but it sounds a little . . . corny. Ok, cornier. It doesn’t seem to be as fast or hard as their previous albums, and somehow not as melodious, either. It’s more light and airy.
I’m withholding final judgement, though, because often the albums I don’t like on first listen, become albums I love after a few more spins. It’s just a little jarring because I loved their first 3 albums as soon as I heard them.
Just a note: Please don’t drive by just to say Dragonforce sucks or similar. If you can’t contain yourself, start your own thread. I really want to talk about them and especially their new album here.
