I'm not amazed!

From what I've seen, generally, if you like it then it will probably suck and if you don't like it then it will probably be good. So I have to say that I'm very pleased to hear this from you.

In fact, I should probably get your view on all new music that I listen to, to determine if it's any good. I won't even have to listen to it, just ask you how you feel about it, and assume the opposite must be true.

That's fair, but it seems like you're not amazed by most things except skillet or bruno mars.

Your taste is a bit too commercial for me. I've always been a bit of a contrarian, and generally tend to prefer things that are not huge mainstream commercial successes. That sort of music always seems a bit soulless, to me. Generally, the more people that like it, the less challenging the music is. I just prefer challenging music, not really into easy listening.

I feel that way with gore, diamond eyes... I don't care if an artist blow up on mainstream as long as they have a strong message in their lyrics...For example: Linkin Park are good because of that...

This is really good instrumental post-rock.

Paleons - Hyperborean (2017)

My favorite track is probably Wheel of Anguish. There's even some moments that remind me of Pink Maggit near the end of Sun at the Eastern Gate.

More excellent post-rock, this one with some vocals. Finally! I get tired of this instrumental post-rock trend. With such a saturated market that post-rock has become, this is a breath of fresh air! I really enjoy it.

Mostly clean vocals, with faded screams every so often to accompany the loud moments, which punctuate the otherwise soft and dreamy feel of the music.

I have been waiting for this new album from The Ocean Collective for so long. Now that it's been out for a few days, and I've listened to it almost non-stop since then, I can officially put my seal of approval on it. Is it better than Pelagial? Nah, not really. But it does mark a bit of a return to their earlier sound, which some people might prefer. Regardless of how you compare it to Pelagial, it's really very good. And, honestly, it's difficult to match or surpass an album as near-perfect as Pelagial is.

And the final track, Permian: The Great Dying, is a true gem. It's an amazing song and one of the best they've ever made, in my opinion. The rest of the album is good, but that song is absolutely fantastic. The album is worth a shot.
