I'm not a huge fan of either really...but Ab Initio is a really nice song to listen to. In The Wake just bores me

ab initio! from the beginning (english for latin ab initio). of course! a giant ballad full of emotions sung with such a power in deliverance, such a heartfelt expression of greatest art... definitely one of tristania's best songs for me. (although one of my best friends don't like it). i'd die to hear it sung by mariangela since i guess i'm one of the few who are SO much more happy with her... apart from some songs and this is one of them ;)

I have mixed feelings towards Ab Initio; the song is beautiful and the lyrics are touching, but the music itself kind of puts me to sleep. Also, it does seem similar enough from two other Vibeke songs on the album.

I need to get off my arse and find In the Wake, on Youtube if all else fails.

You should. According to ''the all-knowing'' Wikipedia, the clean male vocals are done by Anders.

I had one go. It's... a weird track. Need to give it more spins but the first impression is positive. Yay to Anders too. :)
