Quote from: erik on Mon, 2011-10-24, 17:25:48Thanks for the extensive review and initiative for an album review series Paco!
Quote from: erik on Mon, 2011-10-24, 17:25:48Then there's the lyrics and artwork, that create a historical, mythical and biblical flavour, from ancient Egypt to the walls of Jericho to the Kings Midas and Solomon, mixing it with personal emotions and situations.
Quote from: PH on Mon, 2011-10-24, 21:42:20So it seems you know a bit more about the lyrics of the album? Can you tell us more?
Quote from: The Butterfly Man on Wed, 2011-10-26, 15:43:27Instead of writing a review, I will point out some of my personal highlights on the album.
Quote from: The Butterfly Man on Wed, 2011-10-26, 15:43:27- "Who gives a damn?" followed by a briljant guitarsolo and a nice ending with a great riff in Out Of The Wilderness.
Quote from: The Butterfly Man on Wed, 2011-10-26, 15:43:27- The keyboardsolo in Valley Of The Kings. I'm usually not very fond of keyboard-extravaganza (you might ask yourself why I even bother with prog then ) but this bit is just so beautiful. Still gives me shivers.
Quote from: The Butterfly Man on Wed, 2011-10-26, 15:43:27- Crying For Help IV. Beautiful song. The guitarsolo by Steve Rothery is well executed. It's soaring, it's melodic, it progresses nicely.........but in all honesty I think John Mitchell outdoes Rothery on Welcome Back! To The Stage. I feel that Rothery plays on auto-pilot whereas JM gives his all here. At least to me it sounds that way. That's why I prefer this live-version over the album-version. Yet it's still one of my highlights of Songs From The Lions Cage...
Quote from: Teunis on Thu, 2011-10-27, 18:57:18Nice idea PH, so we are 'forced' to play an Arena album each week, which is no punishment at all naturally .
Quote from: Teunis on Thu, 2011-10-27, 18:57:18'Solomon' and 'Jericho' are my favourites, had the pleasure to hear both songs live last year.
Quote from: The Butterfly Man on Sat, 2011-10-29, 19:41:36Funny that everyone seems to like Jericho. To me it's the lowpoint of the album. The beginning is alright, then there's a nice melodic guitarsolo, but the second half of the song is pretty 'meh' to my ears. Ah well, opinions...
Quote from: Bupie on Fri, 2011-10-28, 11:39:01brilliantly co-written by Erik if I don't mistake )
Quote from: Bupie on Fri, 2011-10-28, 11:39:01Finally, "Midas Vision" is my least favorite song of the album : not bad but it leaves me cold.
Quote from: Bupie on Fri, 2011-10-28, 11:39:01At last, I don't connect to the lyrics, they are too abstract for my taste and don't move me much.
Quote from: PH on Sat, 2011-10-29, 13:46:52Hey Nicky! I miss your review of this album!
Quote from: Nicky007 on Sun, 2011-10-30, 18:14:24OK, I'l give it a couple of runs this week In fact, I'l wait with reading you guys' reviews in detail till I'v formed my own opinion Nicky.
Quote from: PH on Mon, 2011-10-31, 07:54:56Today, "Songs" week is over ....
Quote from: Nicky007 on Mon, 2011-10-31, 14:15:14You have some way of complicating my life, Paxi Nicky.
Quote from: Nicky007 on Sat, 2011-11-19, 11:33:56So, as a first, thanx, Paxi, for gettin me onto these two fine albums
Quote from: Nicky007 on Sat, 2011-11-19, 11:33:56As an aside, looks like I'm gettin involved in planning the next Copenhell
