Staff pick by
Thryce

30.11.2010 The new The Ocean album is much better than the other new The Ocean album.

The album lies perfectly in line with its predecessor, with the sole difference that Anthropocentric shows aggression, heaviness, power and, well, everything else Heliocentric was lacking.

  Heliocentric was my first encounter with The Ocean and it was utterly boring that I don't feel like listening to another album by them "though being told that the previous stuff is far better"

Rating: 8 Wille Zum Untergang + Heaven TV = awesome stuff. These two songs alone make this album a lot better than Heliocentric.
