Wow, i really love the cover! Looks sorta like a The Tower part II. I am curious if the album is like that too.
Both visually and musically, The Crucible starts where the last album The Tower ended, but it soon takes on its own hue, and it is clear that it cannot be called a â€˜sequelâ€™ as such: this is very much a step further out than anywhere the band ventured on The Tower.
Ah, that awnsers my question
If the album is half as good as the Stickman hype… :MPD:
Shut up and take my money! :lol:
I'll be in the middle of a month-long trip in the Indian Himalayas when it drops. I have a feeling The Crucible is going to make for some interesting background music. Cannot (but will have to) wait! :MPD:
Yeah! Dense and concise sounds great. Nice continuation regarding the artwork. Is it the whole painting or a section of it?
Sounds like a single album then. But that's ok considering "dense", "far out" but still "focused". And if (or rather since) Lux Aeterna is anything to go by, then woah woah woah.
But… Iâ€™ m not so excited about the cover. For my very own personal taste :wink: the simpler designs the band used in the past look much more interesting, like Trust Us or LTEC.
Donâ€™t get me wrong, itâ€™s a fantastic cover, as well as The Tower, but this â€œPaintingâ€ Style looks kind of â€œproggyâ€ to me, if you know what I mean. It looks like this chaotic middle part of Lux Aeterna sounds, and I do love the other parts more.
Just my humble opinion
Nevertheless, canâ€™t wait to hold it in my hands and let it spin!
We're not worthy! We're not worthy!
Feb 15 is a lot of time after christmas, but it will certainly feel like a newborn coming from the gods! :MPD:
@Kid A – The "Painting" style covers are actually paintings by one of Norway's most famous painters – http://haakon-gullvaag.no/kunst
Any Ã¼ber-completists wanting to buy the originals should be prepared to pay dearly.
