TOPIC: "THE LEAK" Nostradamus cd preview
[\m/ Metal Maniac \m/] Wednesday, June 11, 2008 10:06:43 AM 
I had not heard "The Leak's" preview of the album, because my computer sucks... but when I rolled over to and heard the 30-second previews I couldn't say I disagree with JayDee. I will admit that in recent months that my listening ventures have been focused on bands like Iced Earth, whom we know has been writing conceptual pieces since its conception, and several other progressive acts. Not to sound arrogant, but after this turn of events I have somewhat of an idea of how concept albums flow. And in what I heard, Priest did not deliver. It seemed to me just about every other tune was an acoustic piece. I'd like to think that maybe these are the intros that build up to something much more grandiose, that which I think could be interesting. But where's the variety? We've known Priest to have written a plethora of sounds for its albums, where not one song sounded similar to the others. This time it's maybe 2 fast songs, where the rest become slow and tedious. This is not to say I won't dislike the album, because as it is an ambitious undertaking I will eagerly give it a chance, especially after the great reviews I've read that goad the excitement before its release. However I think if it ends up like the previews I've heard, I would hope this thing dies out fast. We know what happened the last time the band tried a new direction.
