5.0 out of 5 stars Simply better 10 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you liked the first album no doubt you liked it for its mixture of complexity, 'heaviness' and its intoxicating melody, simply put 'Death of a Dead Day' takes these and pushes them to quite impressive heights. Every member plays there hearts out (Foord now using even more complex drums and a lot more double kick) and the whole album seems to gel together regardless of the contrasting speeds and form each track takes. A criticism of Sikth is that upon first hearing new material, it can sound, well, a bit like noise. After first flicking through the album I thought exactly this, but after the first 3 listens the album revealed itself for what it really is, a really good listen. Real effort, real passion, real talent, the best album of the year so far for me and certainly one I wouldn’t be without. Buy if you like heavy complex music, just give it a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars sikth and beyond 11 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is sikth's Second full length album, A slightly darker sound than "the trees..." but still very much sikths own distinctive sound, combining the scatty and manic with some great grooves, worth every penny and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars damn good. 21 Jun 2006
By Bob
Format:Audio CD
if you've ever seen sikth live you'll know that they are precision masters of what they do, this album is just spendid to listen to as either chill out, thought provoking (like their previous album...can't beleive its been 3 years since it was released!) anywho, i know loooooads of people who found this catchy, relaxing, heavy, technical, influential and loved it. there are many many other moods that sikth define. get your ass out there and buy it! i'm the first to review it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Result! 17 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
I also have to agree with the person who stated this is better than the first album. "Trees.." in my opinion had a few weak points - namely the re-recorded versions of some of the early songs (which lacked the bite of the originals) and some of the more indulgent songs like Can't We All Dream. Death of a Dead Day is better produced, flows better and is technically more accomplished. It's such a heavy album yet melody weaves it's way into each and every song. And wait til you hear the juddering riff that begins Bland Street Bloom. A++ Sikth for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it time! 2 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
The inevitable second album problem! The first thing you notice going through it, is what you feel it is missing. In my case, I missed the sense of humour of tracks like Such the fool and hold my finger. I miss the catchy choruses of scent of the obscene and poppiness of peep show. And I swear it's harder to tell what they are saying on this album.

But!

It offers a lot of great new stuff. Sikth have managed to get faster and more complicated (sometimes I think at the expense of songmanship) which once you learn the songs a bit you really start to nod your head to :)

There are solos! And they are damn good, esp in In this light, and sinking ship.

The songcraft on the songier songs has changed a bit, and 'part of the friction' is really a great example of what they can do when they tone down the craziness a bit. Although in a frustrating sense of deja vu, I preferred the non-album version!

All in all I don't think they can ever recreate the magic of the ep's, but this is still a damn good album that gets a little better each and every time you hear it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Buy 30 April 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow, well being a SikTh fan for a long time and having downloaded parts of the album I decided to purchase it in pysical form.
Well am I happy I did, I purchased the CD from all your music through amazon, US to UK shipping was very cheap and only took just over a week which is great considering the price. BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE... after I opened up the CD I found that there was the original signed poster with all six signatures from 6 years ago, talk about a lucky find. As for the CD, creatively it may not be quite in the same league as wait for something wild (nothing is, frankly) but it's as good as modern metal gets and is somewhat a precursor to the recent phenomenon of "Djent" of which I am a fan. Overall, great price, relatively quick delivery, epic album and a very nice surprise in the form of some memorabilia for the grieving fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never will anything top tihs album! 3 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is SOOOO much better than "...Trees"...the mixing is much better with a fuller, subbier sound, which is good as they are de-tuned to the floor on this one (Ab in some cases belowe low-B!!!).

The album is just track after track of masterpieces.
From the melodic to then mental opener of "Bland Street Bloom" to the Mental and then melodic (see what they did) ending track, "As the Earth Spns Round"...and unfortunatly that's where they left us...listen and you'll swear it's a good bye track...ends the album flawlessly.

I could go on all day but this Album is 10x better than thier first and has EVERYTHING in it.
It's mental Prog-Metal but with added melodic and ambient parts which could make you cry they are that beautiful.

Something for every Prog-Metal fan here.
BUY IT NOW!
