I'm just going to say that I'm in the same boat as Marcel. Albums that need extra listens to "get" are just a rarity......*sigh*... to me.

There, happy folks? I wrote "to me" so you can't get sensitive about it, even though it's plain obvious that I didn't need to do that.


Yeah, thanks for that mate, so generous and thoughtful.

I could not disagree more... Every album (and I mean, even a Korn album) needs to be listened to many times before judgement.


I totally disagree. EVERYTHING can be properly judged after one listen. Extra listens are just fine tuning, nothing more.

Oh yeah, and it doesn't matter if you've been listening to metal for a year or 34 years, like me.

I'm not saying that I agree or disagree, but it's funny how often you mention that you've been listening to metal for more than 30 years just after expressing your opinion.

Rating: 7 I like this one but I think Trivium are continuing a trend to more melodic and commercially-oriented music, which is evidenced here with lots of harmony in the vocals and shorter tracks. The drumming is still fast and thrash metal and the guitars and bass are similar but the reduction in harsh vocals and the catchy choruses are definitely going to be appealing to a wider audience. I think that if Trivium don't break through to a much larger market with this one, they might ditch this direction that they've been going in and return to a harsher sound. I still enjoy this but I think the songs will become a bit annoying with too many rotations.

  Quite enjoying the music, but I'm struggling to get past that it feels like either Draiman had way too much influence over Matt's vocal techniques in the studio, or Matt inherently channelled his inner Draiman fanboy a little too much. And Draiman definitely seems to have been a little too liberal in using his Disturbed-style vocal layering techniques while in the producer's chair.

Due to these 2 issues, all too often I feel like I'm listening to a Trivium album that features Matt/David duets on every track.

Rating: 7 Yeah, some of these songs are so catchy they've been stuck in my head for days like pop songs. Just singing the chorus over and over in my head. Sort of good and sort of bad.

Extra listens are just fine tuning, nothing more. Never heard anything more ridiculous. Man, you are a strange one.



Actually loads of people I know are of the exact same opinion when it comes to judging all sorts of metal. Maybe it's the metal circles I move around in, I don't know, but I am far from alone with my point of view. So, when I say subsequent listens are just fine tuning it is far from ridiculous.


I don't know if it's because I'm an old Metalhead but I agree with you. There are rare exceptions but usually I need only one listen to have a clear opinion of an album and know if I like it or not. In most cases, I could write a review after only one listen.

When I check for new stuff on the net, I know instantly if I don't like something or if it can be something I could want to invest my money on. Sometimes, I'm not entirely sure I will like it enough to buy and need to check it more thoroughly but I know right away if it has the potential to grow on me or not.

But I think experience has to do with it. I've been listening to Metal music on a regular basis for 30 years or so. When I was new to Metal, it wasn't easy like that.

In some cases it might be a factor but in others it may not. I've been listening to metal for 20 years and I still indulge in a lot of listens to an album before I get it.

In all likelihood, it has naught to do with experience, although that is certainly a contributing factor. Drawing from your album votes and collection, I'm assuming you don't actively search progressive or avant-garde metal. In most cases, I can judge an album not classified within the aforementioned sub-genres after one listen - I'd accredit that to simplicity though...

I don't actively search bands in those genres indeed but I have heard enough bands in those genres to be able to judge them with just one listen. Even though progressive and avant garde might seem complicated at first listen they really aren't that complicated at all. It's all just music.

So then experience does affect your judgement then. Although progressive and avant-garde is "just music", revulsion may be the initial reaction for an inexperienced listener. Have you ever listened to an album, dismissed it, then came to to enjoy after a month or year? Also this depends on your definition of judging, because you could dislike the music, but deem it worthy of appreciation.

Rating: 6 It's just another Trivium album.
