MA reviews for these guys: relatively unbiased or fanboyism run amok?

Are all Manilla Road releases really so damned good?

Pernell: Asker of the obvious

The answer, simply, is yes. Circus Maximus doesn't count, but it's still very good.

It is a mix of both, because once anybody listens to Manilla Road they instantly become a fanboy.

^^^ this is also true.

Manilla Road is the kind of band where you can listen to an album 7 or 8 times in a row and you won't remember ****. Then, when you listen to it a month later, everything hits you.

HOW DOES HE DO IT?????

Does anyone else ever get so overwhelmed when listening to this band? I spun Spiral Castle today and I couldn't believe my ears, again. It's so finely crafted and layered. With each release this band manages to re-invent itself, unbelievable.

I think you know my answer :p

Spiral Castle is my favorite release from them. Merchants of Death's lyrics are orgasmic, and completely true.

I feel the spongebob reference is in order here: HOW DOES HE DO IT????? Also gave Voyager a spin today, nice to know Shelton's still got it. One can only wonder how many more albums this band can pump out...

While were talking about the reunion stuff:

Rome is their most epic song IMO.

Why haven't I listened to these guys before!?

I've been listening to these guys all day. I got through Open the Gates, The Deluge, and Crystal Logic. Whoo!

Phenomenal music right here.

Crystal Logic, Open the Gates and Deluge are probably their best, and IMO most of the stuff after them isn't that great.

The chorus to Necropolis is so overwhelming, every time I hear it I go insane.

They have too many albums. Why not just make a few really good ones instead of a lot of OK ones?
