Re: Akercocke

I get what you're saying because everyone was talking shit about the new Immolation based on the preview tracks as well. Maybe I'm just less of an Akercocke fan so I have lower standards, but I thought this track sounded good and pretty much what I would expect.

Re: Akercocke

I listened to it on the drive home from work and, sadly, was underwhelmed. I'll spin it a couple more times, but it's easily their weakest album imo

Re: Akercocke

I'm on maybe my third time streaming it in the background and I am sold on picking this up. Whatever the final assessment, it sounds like mandatory listening to me. At track 4 and I am starting to pick up the atmosphere. Not that I didn't enjoy it but some of the singing on the latter half of the album sounded like it factually sucked.

Spun it once and haven't since. I don't think it's a good record at all.

Re: Akercocke

I actually hate this crap. There's one half decent track. And have you read the lyrics? They cannot be David Gray's work. He's prolly vomiting in his mouth every time he has to endure this poorly written life-affirming nonsense. The only thing more limp-wristed and tired is the actual riffage featured on the album...

Wow I hope I don't agree with you since I already bought this album but I didn't listen to it any more since ordering it.

Re: Akercocke

Been listening to this a good amount for the past few days. I'm liking it a lot. I guess I don't care enough about Akercocke to be annoyed at all the hate it's getting. When new Morbid Angel comes out I predict I'll be arguing with some of you fuckers hard.

Is it getting hate anywhere other than here? All I see is rave "reviews"...

Re: Akercocke

Yeah honestly this is the only place I have seen that is hating on it, its not their best album but I don't think its their worst either. Antichrist wasn't even that great imo.

other than the production, Antichrist shits all over this turd. it's several orders of magnitude better in every meaningful way, from their performance to the actual songwriting

if it didn't have "Akercocke" written on the cover, i guarantee you it would not receive a tenth of the praise (and obviously less hate).

i wish it weren't true because otherwise i love them to death, but this is some seriously disappointing shit

Re: Akercocke

I wasn't even implying the new one is better than Antichrist but that album is a big decline in quality to me when compared to the previous 2 albums, there is only a couple tracks on Antichrist that really stand out to me. Yeah I don't think this new one is nearly as bad as some of you make it out to be on here. Its not like they pulled an Illud this still sounds very much like Akercocke the biggest thing missing though is the Satan theme they have always had. Their weakest album is Rape of the Bastard Nazarene like someone else in this thread mentioned.

Re: Akercocke

I must be dense because I seriously have no idea what's bad about this album. This isn't one of these situations where I see all of your point but I'm defending it anyway.
