Are we talking about the same album?
on 15 December 2007
I suggest that anyone who calls this album a 'masterpiece' probably didn't listen to and marvel in the greatness of The Second Stage Turbine, or In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth 3.
Nothing in No World for Tomorrow rivals the awe inspiring self titled track of In Keeping Secrets, or the beautiful but diverse three tracks of the Velorium Camper, or the gritty A Favour House Atlantic and Cuts Marked in the March of Men, or the splendid 'Delirium Trigger' and 'Devil in Jersey City.'
Even the track 'The Running Free' pales compared to 'Ten Speed', 'Welcome Home', and 'Once Upon your dead body'. Only 'The End Complete II: Radio Bye Bye' really stands up in sound qualiy to the first volume of Good Apollo.
I think a lot of this album can be tarnished with the brush of similarity and staleness. And while occasionally you can hear the sound which made this band so great in its own way, it wholly lacks the epic sound that catapulted it onto the stage it possesses today.
