Worst Tristania Songs
« on: 25 June 2011, 16:49:44 »

I guess everyone have a few dislike songs. For me they are:

1.  Angellore: good lyrics and music but it's not as dark as the rest of the Widow's Weeds. Maybe in another album with some changes I would like this song.
2.  Fate: boring, too slow for having such a poor music. It repeats the chorus too many times also.
3.  AB Initio: weak, popish and definitely not for Vibeke. Sounds like a ballad for Maddona or Lady Gaga.

The other songs are great :D

hm... I really like that song. Though the vocals could be better I like its power and the lyrics. The chorus could be a lot better too. Still I like it ::)

I really hate the part were it goes ''The room went da-ah-aahahahark''. hehe

Same here, yet people really seem to love this one... The choir/growl sequence is epic, and ุsten sounds great, but the rest sounds like filler. One exception is 2:57 - 3:13, because I first thought the song would ''take off'', but instead got soft and acoustic :)

Yeah I think that song is overrated. But it isn't one of the worst ones.  :D

 :'(

Angellore is my favorite Tristania song.


My least favorites are:

The Ravens: BOOOOOOOOOOORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fate: REALLY BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sirens: Ugh. Just plain annoying
Caprice: Insufferable. Can't stand this track
The Emerald Piper: This one is just....eiw
Patriot Games: I don't hate this one...but it gets on my nerves on occasion
Midwintertears: again...I don't hate it, I just find it kind of bland. But I do love Vibeke's part in it <3
Bird: This one is just....freaking weird

The "least favourite" for me would be:

1. The Wretched - my grievances about this song are well documented elsewhere on the forum, so need I repeat myself? In short: it sounds awfully inconclusive and directionless to me.
2. Fate - puts one to sleep and that never changes until the song thankfully ends.
3. Magical Fix - verse vocals do this song no favour.

and much of the first album, because of too much growling and annoying guitar sound.

That's true. But The Wretched is one of my favs still though it's weird.
 
About Rubicon, it has lots of empty songs and comercial stuff but if you listen to it thinking it's not a Tristania work it can be awesome too (Amnesia and Protection at least are great).

The wretched:  it's just that the song doesn't grip me in any way . I dont think it's there worst but I really dislike it.
Fate:Do I need a reason  :)
Of Ruins And A Red Nightfall: Irritating
Sirene: Once again not bad/not to my liking

AB Initio sucks. Deadlands and Cure can be really nice if you are in the mood of slow music (Equilibrium and Cease to Exist too).

I share this, 100% (I love Vibby's part on Midwintertears, it's extremely beautiful!!, but I HATE the beginning of this song)

The acoustic guitar chords with that piano part is epic.

I agree. Cure is very beautiful, I really like the ''When I move...'' part.

Cure lyrics are beautiful. It shines without growls or even without electric guitars. Its atmosphere could be sleepy (which is weird in Tristania) but it's cool anyways.

Cure is the best - I would like to drown all my sorrows while listening to that song one day. But First I need a handfull of sorrows and unhappiness
