Another round of emails will go this afternoon.

I know I was supposed to do Kid A...
but I change my mind and though I'll do something less unknown .....


I chose Pinkback’s “Blue Screen life” and it is one of my favorite albums. This is an album filled with good melodies, and amazing vocal harmonies. Anyway if you like melodic pop songs, with catchy choruses, then this is the album for you.


Offline P.K

A song about online gaming, this song has everything you’d want in a song.
Good lyrics and awesome music to back that up.

Concrete Seconds

One of my favorite songs on the album that deals with boredom and trying to be at peace with yourself and realizing that things haven’t turned out the way
you've always planned. It is also about relationships and the ongoing battles couples have with one another.

Boo

Without a doubt one of my favorite Pinback songs, and one of the best on the entire album. The songs begins with Orson Wells radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds, very odd but its fits with the rest of the songs. To me this song conveys the feeling of loneliness and being trapped and just wanting to find release. One of the most beautiful and sad songs on the album, if you listen to any song on the album it is this one.

BBTone

Simple and catchy pop song about doing something fun


Penelope

What many consider one of the best Pinback tunes, I will admit this song doesn’t do anything for me but it is quite catchy and touching song

Talby

One of my least favorite songs on the record, despite that it is still and ok song

X I Y

In terms of sound this song seems strangely out of place with the rest of the record, however like the rest of the record the song it is very melodic

Prog

Another song that sounds out of place, this is probably the heaviest rock song on the album and one of Pinback’s best

Your Sickness

Song that can be interpreted in a variety of ways, to me this is a song about life in the music industry


Seville

Very calm and peaceful song about a childhood tragedy, one of my favorites

B]West[[/B]

A sad song about a long distance relationship very melodic

Tres

Despite its weird title this is the perfect closer to one of my favorite albums. A very deep and beautiful song driven by simple piano melody

xsacta1 at iona.edu

Anyway I hope you like it
and first recommend first listening to:


Concrete Seconds
Boo
Bbtone

I'm really glad you're enjoying the album! I was hoping it would go down well.

To answer your questions:
1. A poster on another forum I visit was keen on this album, and as he seemed to like similar stuff to me, I figured I'd check out the album and see if it was any good. I'm very glad I did!
2. The Dark Third is their only album so far. I'm not sure if they plan to have a second one out next year or not. There is an EP though, Cautionary Tales For The Brave, which contains some different songs. I haven't heard the EP yet, so I'm not sure if the Dark Third songs on it are different mixes or not.

That album by Utopia is spectacular, especially the first song.

I'm really glad you liked it, Axver. I was kind of afraid that no would. Communion With The Sun (the first song) really is . If you want, I could send you some of their other prog rock stuff.

I think when I'm on the road for the holidays I'll listen to the thread's three prog rock albums straight through together as one single experience. The Dark Third, Animals and RA.
That's a beautiful combination.


But uh...does anyone have any thoughts on the albums that they have listened to yet?

Mighty Joe Moon

I agree with everything you said about this album, Brau. The albums sounds of a nostalgic drone. I love this album. It seems to take all these great aspects of some of the artists of that time but at the same time make the sound its own.

Another album that I'm so glad to have discovered.

so far i've only listened to brau's contribution. i knew a couple songs off it, but hearing the whole thing = definitely better than just "happiness" and "honey don't think".

excellent

Never Loved Elvis...wow just wow... that is some kick ass music right there... very uplifting music... it's like the sound of a festival/parade/celebration...

Awesome use of the all those stringed instruments and such...
I started laughing halfway into "Welcome to the Cheap Seats" cause of how much i was enjoying the album and that was only 4 songs in... and "Here Come Everyone" ... awesome cd... for some reason the vocalist reminded me of thom yorke...

Blue Screen Life...Prog awesome awesome song...that chorus ... concrete seconds and then boo were two great back to back songs.... seville.... great cd just layed in bed and listened to it from front to back without stop....only gripe is that the vocalist didn't really use much range...

I'll listen to The Dark Third tonight and Might Joe Moon tomorrow...

2 CD's in, i'm very glad i joined this
