Balai: 80

Neseniai gavau sitos grupes sita albuma, tai buvo proga perklausyt kelis kartus per ta savaite. Suidomino toks ilgas pavadinimas ir nusakytas stilius – Post-rock maisytas su Indie ir Alternative. Nuskambejo idomiai. Ir buvo idomus albumas, is tikruju. Labai grazi pradzia ir pabaiga, vidurys – geras. Buvo kelios dainos kurios nepatiko. Bet kelios ir labai geros, pvz kaip Homage. Labai tokia galinga daina. Siaip isgirdau Post-roko garsus pirmoje dainoje ir po to ta balsa, kuris siaip buna budingas Indie muzikai, tai nuskambejo idomiai, bet pritapo. Savotiskai idomus albumas. Tiesiog kelios dainos buvo per daug iprastos ir neidomios. Albumo, manau, dar klausysiu ne karta, nes tikrai idomus muzikos gabaliukas.

Score: 80

Not long ago, I got this album, so I had a chance to hear it a few times during this week. The bands name and musical style: Post-rock with Indie and Alternative flavors, really got me interested. It sounded interesting. And really was an interesting album. A very beautiful beginning and ending, the middle was also good. There were a few songs which I didn’t like at all. But there were a few very good ones, for example: Homage. A very powerful song. First I heard the sounds of Post-rock, then that Indie voice and it sounded quite interesting. An Interesting album. Only that a few songs were too indifferent and not interesting. I think that I’ll listen to the album quite a few more times, because the album is a great musical peace.

Radiohead – In Rainbows

in rainbows

Balai: 95

Pamenu kai pirma karta isgirdau si albuma 2007-u Spali, kai mergina isvyko. Sis albumas mane labai stipriai paveike. Na tikrai vienas geriausiu mano girdetu albumu per visa mano gyvenimo laika. Sis albumas praktiskai unikalus. Jame daug Minimalistikos, Elektronikos, Roko, Melancholijos, Instrumentalizmo ir Eksperimentalizmo. Viskas atitinka mano reikalavimus. Albumas padare labai dideli ispudi ir iki siol nenustoju jo klausyt. Patiko visos dainos. Tik, laikui begant, vienos patiko labiau nei kitos. Dabar man labai patinka 15 Step, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, All I Need, Videotape ir House of Cards. Is antro kompakto labai patinka Last Flowers. Dainu zodziai taip pat nuostabus, kaip ir budinga Thom Yorke’ui. Dainos tikrai paima uz sirdies dar kai isiklausai i zodzius. Labai geras albumas, bet nera tobulas. Manau, kad dar surasiu ir tobulesni, nors sitas labai to arti. Sunku pasakyt man jo neigiamas puses, bet jauciu, jog tai dar nera albumas vertas 100 balu.

Score: 95

I remember when I first heard this album in 2007 October, when my girlfriend left. This album has effected me heavily. Certainly one of the best albums I have ever heard in my life time. This album is practically unique. It’s full of Minimalistic, Electronic, Rock, Melancholy, Instrumental and Experimental qualities. Everything meets my requirements. The album has made a big effect on me and I can’t stop listening it to this day. I liked all of the songs. Only that by time some songs seemed more appealing than others. Right now I fell in love with: 15 Step, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, All i Need, Videotape and House of Cards. From the other CD I fell in love with Last Flowers. The lyrics are unique as well, which is usual for Thom Yorke. The songs really get inside me when I listen to the lyrics. A very good album, but it’s not yet perfect. I think that someday I’ll find a more perfect one. It’s hard to say the bad points of the album, but I feel that this album isn’t worth the perfect 100.

Anathema – A Fine Day To Exit

a fine day o exit

Balai: 88

Suzinojau, kad Anathema tai Doom Metalo grupe, bet siame albume negirdejau nieko panasaus. Gal kiek ir nusivyliau del to, bet albumas vis tiek patiko. Jame skambejo Alternative, Progressive Rock. Geras vokalas, kaip ir matyt dera Doom Metal grupems. Bet sis buvo svarus visa albuma, jokio rekimo. Muzika grazi, bet gal kiek monotoniska. Ipusejes i albuma nebepasigedau Doom’o, nes albumas jau buvo tiesiog geras. Grazi akustika. Na grazus albumas. Galbut nieko labai ypatingo, bet albums tikrai vertas demesio. Vien paklausyti vokalo. Ir, A Fine Day To Exit parodo kaip gali susiformuoti Doom Metalo grupe.

Score: 88

I found out that Anathema plays Doom Metal, but in this album I heard nothing of a sort. Maybe I was a bit disappointed in that, but I still loved the album. The album was Alternative, Progressive Rock. Good vocals, as it is probably usual to Doom Metal. But this one was clean for the whole album, no screaming. The music was beautiful, but maybe a bit monotonic. Half way through the album I already didn’t miss Doom Metal, because, simply, the album was great. Beautiful acoustic. A Great album. Maybe nothing out of the ordinary, but it’s worth the time.Vocal is one good reason. And, A Fine Day To Exit shows how Doom Metal bands can morph differently and right to the other side.
