The droning noise at the end of The Glow Pt. 2 is the first noise at the beginning on Mount Eerie.

TemporaryFamineShip says:

Ehhh, I like this album. Don’t *love* it, but it’s a good enough listen. I own it, but haven’t really felt the urge to revisit. Nothing special. But who knows, maybe when I *do* decide to revisit, I’ll end up loving it.

wow fly says:

Will you do a classic review of Katatonia – Brave Murder day? Also I know your not exactly a fan of their recent works but will you review there latest album The Fall of Hearts?

Michael Carpenter says:

IT DOESN’T SOUND LIKE YOU UNDERSTAND THIS ALBUM AT ALL. ITS LIKE YOU LISTENED TO IT ONCE OR TWICE AND THAT’S IT.

Jacob Mac says:

I’m wearing my microphones shirt while watching this, one of my all times favorites for sure

Nick MayCry says:

This is indeed a great record, but I tend to fall asleep when I try to listen to the whole thing. Not in a bad way, the first few tracks are just so calming to me.

I wish I could understand what’s going on with the concept of this record.
