Yes, it came today: Airbag - A Day At The Beach. And it is even better through the stereo system than on Spotify by headphones. Just wow. They don't repeat themselves, but this album has some new (electronic) influences. A bit eighties ... cool.

Yesterday and today I listened extensively to the first three albums by Airbag.
I'm becoming excited for their fifth album release tomorrow!
Good to read *horns*.

Still have to listen to their fourth, so now I'm about to listen to:
Airbag - "Disconnected"
Needs a few listenings I suppose if this was your first :).

np: Airbag - A Day At The Beach 8)

My local record shop mailed me that the delivery has been delayed. Fortunately it's on Spotify already. Now playing for the second time. A contender for my top-3 of 2020 I think ;) *horns*.

Yeah, looking forward to it, the two published track are tasting for more 8). Funny story, I don't have the problem you mention with Airbag, love them all. A I didn't even know there were EP's before 'Identity' :).

"Come On In" (2004)
"Sounds That I Hear" (2005)
"Safetree" (2007)

The second and third EPs have songs that were re-released on "Identity". I think the first EP was the one that I liked. I think the songs were different in style than the songs that came after, but I honestly don't know for sure. I guess I was disappointed at first, because the proper album contained songs that were released earlier.
But my memory is very blurry. Anyway, I like what I hear now, so we'll see what it means.

Paralydium - "Worlds Beyond"Was a bit 'too much' for me I'm afraid .. and the vocals don't appeal to me unfortunately :-\

Ah too bad. I think the singer sounds a lot like Eric Gillette, but with a rougher edge. Musically I'd say they sound a lot like Symphony X. I like it a lot actually! But yeah, what can we do...

np: I Am The Manic Whale - Gathering The Waters (No, not really my taste ...)

Now you're just hurting my feelings! ;D

Will play it in a moment, after Riverside is finished ... ;). Swedish prog metal rules *horns*. Curious.

Waaaaaay back I was one of the people who downloaded their EPs for free, before they even released their debut album.
I really liked those EPs. But the album "Identity" was a little bit of a disappointment to me.
After that I think I tried once more, "All Rights Removed" this time. But it never clicked.

With the new album coming up I feel that I need to try again!

So...

Today I listened to:
Airbag - "Identity" (twice)
And Airbag - "All Rights Removed" (third time already)

I think it's finally starting to make sense to me. It's very mellow. Which means I have to be in the mood for mellow.

So I think I'll place it (at least "Identity") somewhere with Pink Floyd (obviously), Porcupine Tree (where they sound like Pink Floyd), Anathema (vocals and guitar), Gazpacho (which is also very mellow), Pineapple Thief (some of the more poppier approaches), Radiohead (also the more upbeat and poppier bits). "All Rights Removed" has all these things and also Marillion and Lunatic Soul/Riverside added to it as well.

I'll keep on listening. ;)
Tomorrow I'll add "The Greatest Show On Earth" to my homework.

pp: Gazpacho - Demon
np: Riverside - Anno Domini High Definition (Cellebrating its 11th anniversary today. Far from my favourite Riverside album, too heavy/screamy :-\)

NP:
Paralydium - "Worlds Beyond"

This is really good! Swedish Prog Metal. Very melodic. I think this will go well with The Shattered Room!
