Hey, Wintersun. Listen up. You want to know how to make a proper, full-length album with hundreds upon hundreds of tracks over ten songs in only three years without constantly bitching about not having your own private studio/living space/jacuzzi, AND while still challenging both yourself and your fans with a multifarious jewel of avant-garde perfection? Take note, because Sigh have that totally locked down.

Sigh: the Pier Gerlofs Donia of extreme underwater basket-weaving, the Brough Superior SS100 of the 1805 Unspunnenfest, the Crank 2 of Tammany Hall, the Swabian Salute of double-corrugated, eight-fold, 14-gauge cardboard boxes. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but there's a little bit of everything - everything you didn't know you absolutely needed in a metal album.

This was such a step down from In Somniphobia even. A pathetic effort from a band that is capable of far more.

Well, the G albums usually are. I think the I albums are the best in each cycle.

Not if you include only new albums and the one primary, non-split EP =P (aside from the very first of course)

I wanted to make fun of you but then I realised that in my early MS years I read the trivia page once I discovered a band. So I can't be sure how long it ould have taken me if I were in your Place.

Still though, "duh" moment of the day.

Yeah, I kind of want to believe I did know about it but just forgot. Probably just didn't know it though =P

Yeah, I just prefer the Is in each cycle. Hmm, I think I might actually put them in the same order each cycle: IHSG. Haven't heard the 2nd S, though.
