Re: VENNART (Mike Vennart, ex-Oceansize)

Not being familiar with any previous work I'd say this is pretty good. It's kind of on the bright and light side for my tastes, but all quality.

Re: Redemption - Long Night's Journey Into Day (July 27, 2018)

I feel like the vocals are a bit low in the mix, but it does sound good. I'm excited to hear more. I wonder why Nick keeps doing that, putting the vocals so low? The vocals were also very low in the mix on This Mortal Coil. Tom still sounds great, and I have high hopes for the rest of the album. Th...

They even let me in after I got rather drunk on their booze and blathered for way too long! Clearly they have questionable judgement in people, but I think it's offset by the generally excellent taste in music.

Hahahaha, no worries. I know full well that I'm pretty much the only person consistently wielding that particular hot take.

I didn't comment on Shaman either, but I agree that it's disappointing that it just sort of fizzled. There was a lot of promise there. I do quite enjoy Ed's solo albums though.
