Least Favorite Track On Rubicon??
« on: 30 June 2011, 08:14:06 »

I generally like the album alot...but there are a few glitches for me.

I cannot stand Sirens and I'm not a big fan of Patriot Games. I also despise the bonus tracks (Caprice and The Emerald Piper). Other then that, I love the whole album. It sounds great :D

What are your least favorites?

Patriot Games and The Emerald Piper are the only ones that actually bother me. Year of the Rat and Caprice are sort of neutral, which is not good. The rest is fairly strong! :)

I pretty much love the whole album, except for ... Illumination. (Caprice is pretty good, makes sense as a bonus track)

Magical Fix bothers me because of the "muthafooka" feel of the verse vocals, less so Patriot Games (the shouted chorus made me think of Sepultura for some reason). I don't like Year of the Rat all that much either, because it seems to be taken right out of Morten Veland's recent cookbook called "Of poppy gothic metal".

Lol, Tristania and Morten Veland doesn't think in gothic metal music when they compose their songs (probably with WW and BtV they did). They have said that their music is pretty much a own project which has gothic influences but it isn't 100% gothic metal. It's hard to forget about genres when you listen to music.

I like all of the album, but the one track that bugs me slightly is "Year of the Rat"  :-\

it's between the Emerald Piper and Magical Fix but I still like the songs though, they´re good just not as good as the rest of the album.
