  1. Circa Survive "LP6" Discussion

    So...new album dropped when the board was down, what is everyone's opinion? This album is a perfect mix of everything they've done in the past...I hear so much influence of every album in certain parts. Relates to the growth of not only the band but myself over these 14 years. Each Circa album has been on a steady decline in my liking (not to say I didn't enjoy any of them) as they come out, but this album is wayyyyyy better then Descensus. Some negative notes - I feel Will didn't do Anthony's vocals justice...way too behind in the mix of instruments. Maybe that was the point, to let the other members shine, but I do not like it. A lot of tracks I have no idea what Anthony is saying, and being able to belt his lyrics has always been a favorite part of Circa for me. The Amulet, although a good track on its own, has to be their weakest closing track to date. Just doesn't give me the feels or complete the album like others have. I also feel the tracks don't hold up well live. They're coming in June, hope hearing it then changes my mind. Can't wait! Standout tracks: Lustration, Premonition of the Hex, Tunnel Vision, Rites of Investiture, Flesh and Bone Edit after concert: Tracks were fucking amazing live, haha.
  2. Glad this forum is back!

    Been checking this thing from time to time for a year now....glad it's back. Lot's of information/inside stuff here.
  3. New song and video is amazing. Good luck with your addiction Anthony, don't give up.
  4. Saosin "Along The Shadow" | Discussion

    Really bummed with this, although I'm not surprised. I was never really into screaming, and if the 15 year old me didn't like it then the 30 year old me sure as hell won't. While TTN had screaming, I felt Anthony didn't over do it quantity or sound wise. They had a "melody" to them. These new tracks are overwhelming for me. Not my cup of tea at all. Seems so lost and undefined. Overproduced, too. Way too much shit going on. Anthony's vocals/style/lyrics just aren't the same anymore, but that's understandable and asking for the same thing from 15 years ago will obviously lead to disappointment. His style in TTN was like...poetry. Oh well, I'll always have TTN. Glad you other dudes are enjoying it. I haven't been stoked with an album release in a long, long time, maybe Radiohead's "In Rainbows." Even CS releases don't do it for me anymore. Was really hoping for so much more from this.
  5. Glad East Coast Winters is getting a proper release. Love that song and always felt it deserved more exposure.
  6. Circa Survive "Juturna Deluxe" Discussion

    Never noticed this until someone on VC pointed it out - "Oh, Hello" ends with "Suspending Disbelief's" beginning. Seems they were originally supposed to be back to back. Wonder why Suspending Disbelief got scrapped from Juturna?
  7. Circa Survive & Anthony Green: Vinyl Discography

    Don't do affordable. Save and buy quality. No sense in listening to the format for it's superior (debatable) quality if you skimp on the player. I don't know much on recent players since I've had my Technics for 15 years, but STAY AWAY FROM CROSLEY for sure. Head over to vinyl collective and do some research. Really good community. http://boards.vinylcollective.com/forum/6-turntables-other-audio-equipment/ Say goodbye to your money. Also, don't spend heaps of money trying to get original or "rare" pressings. Almost everything eventually gets repressed or you can score a good deal with someone not money hungry, just wait it out.
  8. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    No love for "Always Begin"? Fuck you guys.
  9. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    Meh. Think I might care for it even less than VW, which is really depressing. Few AMAZING moments here and there but as a whole, just loses me. None the less, solid effort boys. Do you. Here's to waiting another few years.
  10. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    Album sounds amazing. Such a broad range of styles yet seems coherent as a whole. As much as I want my Juturna 2.0, this is totally welcome.
  11. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    This shit is so chill, love it. Just not sure how this will fit in with the anticipated heavy album. Reminds me of "West Coast Winters" somehow.
  12. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    I dig, but there's something just...off about it. There's TOO much shit going on? Does that make sense? The layered vocals in the very end is just an overkill.
  13. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    Not sure if trolling or complete fucking hipster... My rage was probably induced by the kobe sucks comment in your profile, though. He's one of the greatest of all time, come on!

    "I absolutely, without a doubt know that anybody who’s an actual fan of Circa Survive is gonna fuckin’ be able to jerk off to this record." - Anthony Green
  15. East Coast Winters <333333333333 Amazing cause. Amazing songs, Amazing person. Amazing.

    Supposedly Saosin with Anthony are reuniting for 10 year anniversary show at S&S festival http://propertyofzack.com/post/76966928643/saosin-officially-reunite-with-anthony-green
  17. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    When they sold pre-order bundles for $750? They have to make a living/cover cost of production, I don't blame them at all. If they're capable of selling it because this band means that much to someone, then by all means go ahead. To say that this band doesn't do things for money is absurd, just as absurd as saying they do things solely for money. Let's not go to extremes here people. They've found a medium that works and they're going to stick with it. I know they love making music and creating experiences for their fans, but reality is there's a lot more to that if they want to be able to continue doing so.
  18. Circa Survive "Random" Discussion

    No vinyl with the hand painted jacket itself, but all the box versions came with the standard LP release.
  19. Circa Survive "Descensus" Discussion

    Excited for the new album. Don't expect anything experimental. The guys are older now and have families to take care of. They'll make what sells.
