Arc of Ascent - The Higher Key

Postby kettles » Tue Mar 27, 2012 10:33 pm

Listening for the first time now, real fucking good as. Drums sound mean, guitar solos are orgasmic, production is heavy as fuck and super clear. The guitar and bass tones are just outrageous. Songs seem a lot more varied and detailed this time and the groove is tight tight tight. Highly recommend you grab yourself a copy.

Can't wait to 0X and hoon it again later

If you had a green one as well it would appeal to the ragga crowd and you could probably score a slot at Raggamuffin. Would probably go down a treat, too.

Had a listen to this today, I'm liking it musically but just can't for the life of me get into the vocals at all, they just sound to whimpy. Also not a fan of the whole fucking Hippy Spiritual shit either.

Sorry John bro. Will not trade again.

Album is killer. Maybe not as memorable as the debut riff-wise, but AoA's sound has gotten huuuuuuge. Redemption is my pick of the songs.

Hooning this for the first time now. Sounding good.

Anyone else had issues getting the CD to play in WinAmp?

Nope, mine goes ok in Winamp. But my DVD/CD drive is a temperamental bitch with other things.
