  1. What would be the point anyway, album release is three days; nothing comared to the time span between first announcement and release date. Pre-orders from NB even arrive a day earlier most of the time (at least in germany they do).
  2. Besides, I think it has the most catchy chorus you could think of. Even more so than Storytime back in the days. I would hope they play it on Tour when I’m going to see them live for the first time at Wacken this year, but I don’t think that’s very likely :/
  3. Oh, cool, I really did not know that Should have been their lead single though…
  4. It was? Where? When? Do you mean the YouTube clip with the weird typo (“otober” instead of “october”) to promote the Tour Edition? The whole album has a lot of strong material, it’s the first album of theirs where I genuinely like and enjoy every single song to some extent
  5. No.
  6. Im englischen Thread wurde es schon prominent diskutiert, hier vielleicht auch nochmal der Anstoß sich die Versionen der „Decades“ alleine wegen des tollen Remasters zu geben. Alle Songs wurde neu überarbeitet und haben einiges an Dynamik-Umfang dazugewonnen (z.B. Storytime von DR4 auf DR8). Schade, dass so gut wir keines der Reviews darauf einzugehen scheint, denn das ist der einzige plausible Kaufgrund. Wer nicht weiß, wovon ich rede darf sich gerne über das Thema „Loudness War“ schlau machen.
  7. I never got how people could get so upset about a vocalist change. Really, really weird stuff, kind of puts the fanbase in a very bad light. I agree that Master Passion Greed was more than just a tad too much, but as far as I know, Holopainen admitted to that rather quickly and they never played it live, so I guess it’s fine.
  8. Never had the feeling it was very underrated, to be honest, I heard lots of people saying it’s their favourite release. Some songs on it are definetly though. I’d argue that Sahara is the best song on this particular album (and among my top 5 favourite songs of their whole catalogue), but I guess it’s not everybody’s cup of tea. I still don’t really like Amaranth, I think it’s the most lackluster song in their repartoire, I find it even less appealing than Wish I Had an Angel and it should have been replaced with Escapist (a better song in every regard).
  9. Yeeeees!
  10. I agree, but it’s important to realize that these values are more significant the closer they come to zero. A difference between –6dB to –8dB is far more noticeable and telling than –10dB to –12dB. Even if it seems to be little difference for some songs Slaying the Dreamer, it’s still a lot. (That difference for TGSOE is very slight, the curves are more or less identical, the only thing I really noticed was that the hard hits at about 1:30 and more prominent at 2:45 are slightly quieter. They could be better, if you have time, listen to the instrumental version from EFMB and compare the hard hits there. There they are perfect, they applied an additional compressor exclusively on the album version to make it sound more voluminous.)
  11. That perfectly describes it for me as well It’s just so nice, that the whole thing about dynamic range in music finally gets the attention it deserves. It’s hard to tell the difference after all, when there is no material to do comparisons with. If they’ll keep this up, they’ll have a lifelong fan with me for sure!
  12. Just gotta love your exitement over this
  13. Have you heard the backing vocals on the chorus of I Want My Tears Back. I swear I’ve never noticed them before at all
  14. I never liked the Carpenter really, but I’m surprisingly warming up to it with the Decades version. The drums on this are just pure joy
  15. The fact that they didn’t have to make alterations to the first three tracks (TGSOE, Élan, My Walden) says a lot about EFMB’s mastering which is still under-appreciated in my eyes. For the remasters they almost weren’t touched, they are (very, very, very) slightly quieter but that’s it (it’s only visible in detail, no one could tell by plain listening). I like that Decades provides excellent material for comparisons for people who don’t know what all this loudness war thing is all about. I like even more, that Jussila himself proposed to do remasters, since the band would otherwise just have had released the tracks as they were. All this gives me hope, that the next studio album will sound just as great!
