The Modern End
« Reply #60 on: 20 January 2006, 07:31:58 »

This song is special.
I have the most impression with this song in this album.
I don't often listen to an album from the beginning to the end.
The first time I listen to an album, I'll choose a random song to listen to.
But World of Glass is an exception. I listened from The Shining Path to The Modern End.
Well, The Shining Path is perfect, and The Modern End is interesting.
I have listened to The Modern End so many times, till now, I still enjoy it. I can't forget the music of it, and the voice of Vibeke attracted me.
So is the album.

Real great song! The 1st few verses, in my opinion, are quite......disturbing...well to me they are...  I don't mean scary, they just give me a eerie feeling which I can't describe. Great song all in all!!   :)

I love it. If it weren't for "The Shining Path", it would probably be my favorite song from "World of Glass".

..dang, now I have a craving to listen to it.  :angry:  :lol:

Yeah, song is nice but not typical for Tristania. But Vibeke's voice is absolutely amazing.

You all couldn't have said this any better.

I get this kind of feeling like, I don't know, how to describe it, but I love it.

To me The Modern End is just another song that really exhibits Vibeke's singing talents.

I think that the Modern End performed by Kim Ljung is a very wonderful song but performed by Vibeke and with the tristania Soud it makes it an Exellent song  :-*

I dont really like The Modern End. It lacks the vocal contrast that's present on the rest of the songs. It's also lacking in lyrics. I just dont find it fitting in the album.

Wonderful song. Tristania couldnít play a best cover for this album. The lyrics are very connected with the essence of World of Glass. I love specially this song, and I have written a poem inspirited in it (I donít upload it here because itís written in Spanish, and itís in rims, so it would lose its beauty if had to translate it).

Do they know
They have slept for so long?
Do they know
The taste of their tongue ?
Do they know
They are trapped?

These lines are the perfect definition of the actual humankind.

I adore this song, the atmosphere is dark and charming ::) I'd love to see a video on this song, something like Heretique... sadly there's no chance they'll ever make it.

I just got the album, and this song jumped out and steamrollered me right there and then. Played it like 5 or 6 times on repeat already, ignoring the rest of the record.

I guess I have a soft spot for Techno/Industrial sometimes because I also dig Ulver's Themes from William Blake's Marriage of Heaven and Hell. :)
