Talking about Denmark, I liked the Mew album - the last one - frengers.. I liked it very much.. I wonder why it didnt become popular. Atleast symmetry and Am I wry were excelllent...


How popular is Mew in Denmark ?

From what I have heard, porcupine tree's songs are either
( which sort of overlaps)

1) no drums or bass - only vocal, piano and minimum guitar
eg . feel so low or collapse light

2) metallish fast catchy - lightbulb sun ( the track), dislocated day, blackest stars

3) great 4-5 minute melody pop song - eg rest will flow, prodigal

4) long 10 minute + songs with lyrics - russia on ice, hate song

5) instrumental - 0.3, some of these are very long 15-20 min range
You know what I'm finding I quite like is the ebb and flow on this album. Oddly, probably the song that is my least favourite (Four Chords That Made A Million) is the one that is very catchy and sticks in my head so that I'm humming it when I'm out shopping and the like.

I'm finding I really like Lightbulb Sun (especially the very beginning, but it all works well), The Rest Will Flow (I love strings and it's a really pretty song....sometimes I'm a sucker for a pretty song), Hatesong (I find this one oddly erotic ), Russia on Ice I really like (strings again, but I also really like the vocals. actually I like the vocals on most.), and I also really like Shesmovedon a lot too.

Of those four right now I would have to go with The Rest Will Flow (it's the strings!).

There aren't really any I really dislike, at least not right now.

I actually enjoy Last Chance To Evacuate Planet Earth Before It Is Recycled more than I should, but that is possibly because it reminds me of Warp Factor 9 and Big Spaceship and many of those funky outerspace movies I used to see when I was a kid.

One of them is still here

I think you should ask yimou and/or Sly Stallone about Mew, because I haven't really listened much to them.

Ahhhh, Mew,, great band The new album ´And The Glass Handed Kite´ is without a doubt the best fooking rock album to ever be released by a Danish band. AND if this album dosn´t stir something up out there in the music world then things are just fooked up

U2Man, do yourself a favor a check out just how amazing a Danish album can be,,, Forget about the new Kashmir album because it blows,

sky moves sidewards has smaller version of moonloop ...plus also sky move sidewards part1 and part2.

unfortunately i cannot appreciate those..because (may be) i run out of patience.

i like intrumental songs..0.3, whales and wasps, one of these days, also orchidia.............but the long ones...i cant get it...

it looks like a deliberate attempt to make song long...and there it loses out with me..

Yes, I read an interview with Steve Wilson and he confirmed it is indeed The Bends by Radiohead.

And regarding your post about long songs ... I can really like them; I think the best non-U2 song is Dream Theater's 23 minute A Change Of Seasons. What do you think of Arriving Somewhere But Not Here on Deadwing? It's one of my favourites, I absolutely love it.

I'd probably rank the album something like this:

1. Lazarus
2. Deadwing
3. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here
4. Mellotron Scratch
5. Shallow
6. Halo
7. The Start Of Something Beautiful
8. Open Car
9. Glass Arm Shattering

Axver,

Thanks for that information - In one of the interviews, Steven Wilson had mentioned that radiohead were one of the better and creative bands in the music scene.

Dream theatre - I dont like Dream theatre. I dont like metal or prog rock ( except Porcupine tree which strangely I like very very much).

Regarding ranks,

I havent listened to all songs fully. I like "arriving somewhere" but I will listen it more when I was finished with "deadwings" & "mellotron" & "lazarus". I need to listen them 10 times each each day

So Based on that I would rank

1) Mellotron scratch
2) Lazarus
3) Dead Wings
4) Halo

i will listen to others soon...and then I can give a better picture..

With Inabsentia, initially I liked "blackest stars","sound of muzak" and "prodigal" most but after sometime, "collapse light", "0.3" and "heartattack" became my favorites....Also "creator had a masterpiece" & "gravity eyelid"

Now I love the whole album.

Deadwing looks like great album - just like stupid dream, lightbulb sun or inabsentia

right now...I have an urge to listen to deadwings all the time

listened a bit more of deadwing...

another song to stand out is

"glass arm shattering "

it looks like a song by AIR - something like a mix between slower version of "sexy boy" & "cherry blossom girl"
