I hope Carl will get on and read these questions-I'm really curious about the lyrics on EWN-I get general ideas, but wander if his intention is to be known, or if its to be left up to the listener. This. Also, after hearing his voice multiple times a day for the past week now, I have come to the co...

And one thing that Brass totally missed was how the whole feel, vibe, and sound of the album perfectly fits its lyrical content and title.IMO none of it is forced or tentative, its prefectly natural.And you're right Fred, He is very much the minority, in fact its one of the best reviewed albums of ...

Ember Without Name - ...During this song, I was trying to picture the band during the jams and wondering who was gonna spontaneously combust. You didn't know? That's where they got the name! While recording the ending section, Matt's shoes randomly combusted, and that's why he went so crazy with th...

This is just my opinion, and no kissing up, but for me possibly the best album I have heard in years. I have Yes's Close to the Edge up there, but I can give meaning to CoA. Thanks for the great work! I COMPLETELY agree! I don't think the GH crew really understand how so intensely solid this album ...

Wow, only by an act of God!

I couldn't resist starting a new thread for this simply because my story is so weird and I felt the need for it to be known. Okay, it's obvious to tell that I am posting a thread on Culture of Ascent simply because I obtained my copy of Culture of Ascent, but to understand why this is so unique to a...

Did and done, but I hate the fact that it's a little fuzzy because it isn't desktop sized. But oh well, I'm leaving it up at least until I get the album in my hands.

Re: Bliss. Back from the doghouse.

Hi, I can show my face in You will love it!!!!Matt is incredible on the whole thing. Very bombastic at times, jazzy at times, just all over the place! Whoa, whoa! Matt plays Jazz styled parts on this album!? Crap, I left him a comment on his myspace asking him if he could play some jazz parts on th...

Man, I'm going nuts. I keep listening to the samplers over and over, but I need that whole album. Nothing else I listen to lately is doing it for me because I'm simply too excited for this album. UGGGGHHHH, why October 23rd!? Be patient Shad, be patient. *Explodes*

Here's my reaction: South Side of The Sky - Woah, did not expect the intro to sound like that, and the kick in sounds really cool. I like the overall sound but was begging Matt to try and imitate more of Bruford's style here, but I'm not going to complain because he still sounds great. Sun Song - I ...

I actually had a dream last night that I was in the car with my Mother listening to the album for the first time. Honestly, even in my DREAM it sounded super awesome. I'm salivating at the mouth for this album, and my soul shrivels without it. I WANT COA!!!!! :cry:
