Favourite track on Rubicon
« on: 22 August 2010, 20:13:54 »

Ok, so this is definitely going to be the toughest best-of-album poll yet! I've spun the disc quite a few times already, but can't even begin to guess as to which track will come out on top. Tristania has woven 11 stellar tracks for us!

Myself, I'm leaning towards voting for Einar's closing opus "Illumination", but might well change my mind several times over (vote changing is allowed in the poll).

Good luck to all on making up your minds in this our most difficult poll so far!  ;D

I have chose illumination  enair did great work on it I loved it the must and then comes  patriot Games is wonderful    Protection is truly dark but it looks year of the rate is the weakest song on the album

After a few listening of Rubicon it's hard for me to say which one I prefer, the quality of the songs is homogeneous.
my top songs for the moment: Illumination, Patriot Games, Emerald Piper, Exile.

I listened to Rubicon the first time now...
I chosed "Illumination", i love it, it's wonderful! I also really liked "Protection", "Vulture" and "The emerald Piper"!
But i will take a second listen to it today, so maybe this will change...

By the way... I think it's really hard on this record to figure out who sings sometimes...
So much voices mixed xD. On some Vocallines i'm not shure if it's Osten, Kjetil or Ole who sings... ::)

i fear you misunderstood. i DIDN'T mean a link to the song or to the album. i'd NEVER ask for that, above all for something not even released yet. I HATE when people share music not even released.
what i meant was, does someone have a link to the tracklist of this japanese edition? so i can order it via internet and happily receive it via mail! ;)

then i apologize, charism. :-[ sorry for having ME, misunderstood you!

so, today i received Rubicon and already listened to it like 8 or 9 times. argh! ammmazeeeeng album just like i thought! and a "difficult" one. as for Ashes, i'll need many more listenings to have a clear vision of it. until now, i must say there's no track i really dislike. and i also happened to like Emerald Piper more than last year's live versions (strange, usually it happens the opposite to me).
a track that less impress me so far is Vulture, while my favs until now are Year of the Rat, Protection, Exile, Amnesia, Illumination. very, very shortly followed by all the others.

thanks, tristania! ;D

After many listens to the new album the best song is  1 - Patriot Games  2 - Illumination 3 - Magical Fix 4 -  Protection
 the worst song on it is the year of the rate then comes amnesia  they are not bad songs but they can make it much better but if look deeper you will find illumination fit only for vibek and osten

A few minutes ago i listened to "Caprice", i downloaded it from 7digital.
I have to say that it is not very good or special... "The emerald piper" as bonus track is much better in my opinion!
