Yesterday "Laut und kantig" by radioeins from Potsdam/Berlin features three songs from The All Is One, the host Christiane Falk seemed to be pretty impressed by the album. If you can't wait and want to listen to some other nice stuff, you can check it out here (the orange link in the middle of the page): https://www.radioeins.de/programm/sendungen/laut_und_kantig/August 25, 2020 at 09:58 #37479
Order arrived this morning, looks awesome.
Don't rip the cd on iTunes yet, the CD2 is a bad mix of data….August 25, 2020 at 10:03 #37480Krist RampageParticipant
Just got a message from my girlfriend that my Stickman copy has arrived too. Awesome. :STG:August 25, 2020 at 10:30 #37481marcParticipant
Guys, don't mess with my heart rate! Also ordered at Stickman and now i am waiting by the door for the bell to finally ringAugust 25, 2020 at 10:41 #37482
I should have precise it arrived in Brussels this morning.
Rolf dropped a couple of free albums in the package as well.
Stickman Records for the win since 1994.August 25, 2020 at 10:51 #37483Krist RampageParticipant
Free albums? That's so cool. I once received a somewhat damaged vinyl cover of the Barracuda ep for free. Love Stickman.August 25, 2020 at 11:01 #37484JEROParticipant
Stickman und Frau twice sent me a copy of the Alabama Kids cd (drowsey driver) along with my order, that was a great discovery for me, the cd has been playing in my car for the 3rd year in a row now, and many a passenger shouted out "what's this great guitarband, are they English, American…" so I can tell them the Alabama Kids were Holland's best band ever, once!
Here & now, N.O.X. is playing, second lp, volume turned up, it's a dark & rainy day, I'm forgetting time and space and enjoy getting lost in this fantastisk vortex! :MPD:August 25, 2020 at 11:29 #37485
Enjoy everyone who already received it! My Stickman package will be delivered tomorrow…but 10 hours work tomorrow and Thursday…will have to wait for my free Friday I guess…August 25, 2020 at 11:41 #37486
I got Elder's Lore as a promofreebie with a stickman order. That's how I discovered them. That was great.
So I listened to the rest of the album (besides N.O.X.) and I don't know what that plattentests.de reviewer heard. Yes it's somewhat similarish to the previous two but also very different. Just like The Tower and The Crucible have a certain common vibe but are still very different from each other. This one also has more hints to older MP songs than TT and TC. There's one with a similar groove to a BH/BC song, another has a vocal line that reminds of something from Cake or Phanerothyme. The Same Old Rock has that She Left on the Sunship-ish hook, as someone already mentioned. But there's tons of stuff unheard so far, especially in the departement of rhythm.
And if anyone ever tells you Tool is the most out-there visionary grandest band ever, feed them N.O.X. It doesn't sound like Tool at all, don't get me wrong, but in terms of grandezza (and regarding the time it took them for their latest – and quite disappointing imo – album), it wipes the floor with 'em.
There's just one thing oddly missing, which I can't write here due to spoilering. I wonder when someone will bring it up when everyone has had their spin eventually.August 25, 2020 at 12:34 #37487
mmmm maybe I've been wrong about that thing oddly missing. It might only apply to the songs outside of N.O.X. Looking forward to your views on that.
OUROBOROS AT FULL VOLUME

Ah, vinylâ€˜s here in ZÃ¼rich. Wasnâ€˜t the release date to be Aug 31st?
no freebie, though.August 25, 2020 at 14:01 #37489Punj LizardParticipantQuote:Ah, vinylâ€˜s here in ZÃ¼rich. Wasnâ€˜t the release date to be Aug 31st?
No. The 28th.
I think I might have to wait a while for my copy from Stickman as I ordered a few other items at the same time, including Begynnelser, and it's all got to be shipped to London.
I'm glad to hear some of you are getting your copies early though. And I'm loving the first responses, especially regarding N.O.X.August 25, 2020 at 15:38 #37490GBDParticipant
I couldn't contain myself, and checked the tracks from the broadcast. The All is one was cool, Dreams of fancy too. But that 3rd one, which i suspect is one of the N.O.X tracks, is freakin' brilliant! :STG:August 25, 2020 at 16:40 #37491
Ouroboros, from 2:30 onward. There is a god. And you know His name.
