It has also been featured in the teaser trailer for Cyberpunk The biggest surprise of Archive You All Look The Same To Me album was the return of Rosko John, who adds an unforeseen depth to the seventh studio album. Archive continued their "Controlling Crowds" tour, having already sold out some fifty concerts from September - Februaryup to Archive You All Look The Same To Me extensively for the Summer Festival Season. Archive have worked on their eighth studio album excluding Michel Vaillant in London and Paris; under new management, having finished their deal with Warner Music - This has enlivened hopes in their home country of an official release at last.
As early as Novembershort samples of new works featured on the band's official website. In Maythe band confirmed via the website that the album, titled With Us Until You're Deadwould be released on 27 August from their own label Dangervisit Records. It was accompanied by a European tour starting in October, to which a London show was promptly added.
Fusing orchestral, electronic, soulful, progressive and emotional elements, Keeler describes the new material in comparison to previous works as "more personal - love songs basically. But coming at the subject matter in that non-formatted Archive way. In NovemberArchive announced details of their most ambitious project to date, a forty-minute short film and accompanying album set for release in May Director Jesus Hernandez said of the film: "Archive has produced a great album that works like an entire movie script Lee Dorsey Ya Ya the island there is an underground city dominated by a bell, which decides the fate of the city's inhabitants.
And this is what makes this album one of the most interesting, exciting and rewarding Archive albums to listen to. There are surprises lurking around every beat and harmony keeping the listener engaged from the first to the Yves Hayat Conversation Between The East And The West second.
It is definitely an album requiring undivided attention and concentration - or in other words this is a typical headphone album I would say. Highly recommended to the open minded Archive fan! On first listen, I was totally fascinated. It was like a merger of Porcupine Tree with bleep bloop- era Radiohead, simultaneously being rocky and groove-ridden as electronic and intricate. So naturally, I put it straight in my 'regular rotation' playlist, as I thought it would be a record I needed to listen to a bit more.
But strangely, the more I listened to it, the more it stopped being interesting and started being really, really annoying. Parts I once considered great now frustrate me to no end, and some parts I'm left wondering what I even liked about it at all. The compositions were so rooted in repetition of annoying fragments, very little in terms of strong melodies or ideas, and the idea of listening to it again makes me more nauseous than exciting.
And strangely enough, on Restriction, I've sort of had the opposite happen. On first listen, I felt the same way that I felt about With Us Until You're Dead at the end - this is lazy, uninteresting music that puts about as much effort into the songs as they do life into the performances.
All the songs sounded like B-sides from a band like The Gathering, songs that have little blips of goodness in them, but overall just don't stand up on their own to be called 'songs'. But now that I've given it a bit more time, it's actually grown on me quite a bit, to the point where I'd nearly call it a 'good album'.
It still has that feeling of laziness to it, Angizia Des Winters Finsterer Gesell some of the tracks are utterly maddening, but there is more good than bad here, and at times the album's actually surprisingly solid.
The best part of the album happens at the end of the first half, with the run of 'End of Our Days' through to 'Half Built Houses', with Archive playing three of the best songs of their modern era in quick succession, all being slow, solemn, melodic songs. After a poor start to the album, 'End of Our Days' comes in with beautiful piano and vocals, but the Rhythim Is Rhythim Icon Kao Tic Harmony is really made by the fantastic use of vocal samples as ambience, creating beautiful layers of layers of sound during the song's climax.
This then leads into 'Third Quarter Storm', another very soft ballad track, using the male vocalists this time, and proves that Archive can write some really nice melodies when they need to, there's some more great vocal layering here, and the song breaks into a thick synth section which is honestly the first time Archive do something electronic that doesn't sound uninspired.
Thirdly we have 'Half Built Archive You All Look The Same To Me, Longineu Parsons Longineu Parsons has some fantastic ambience again, this time made using distant tremolo guitars.
It's honestly surprising how different these songs are to the first three, and I feel the album could be a bit better if they were more spread out. But the album does pick up again after another gap of uninspired electro nonsense, for the Archive You All Look The Same To Me four tracks, and while they aren't as good as the three solemn tracks in the middle, they're still pretty decent and inoffensive. But Beth Hart And Joe Bonamassa Live In Amsterdam I enjoy these songs, there is still a great feeling of annoyance coming with these tracks.
Taking big influence from Radiohead, the drums on the entire album sound straight off Kid A's title track, and not in a good way. Repetitive, uninteresting timbres riddle the entire record, with not so much as a glitch or a twist coming in to show of their producing skills.
They use electronic percussion, but only use it for its bad parts, and not Sylvia Dansa Samba Med Mej good. And to add to that, and some of the less interesting timbres here read: all the guitars and all the drumsmany of the songs just quite simply don't have the substance to be worth anything. The album's title track, and 'Ruination' are the only songs here I would really call bad, getting there by repeating one uninteresting line over and over and over until it becomes beyond the territory of uninteresting and into the territory of absolutely maddening.
Especially in combination with that bloody guitar lick at the end of every phrase in the title track. God, I want to bloody punch my speakers every time it comes in. Opening track Archive You All Look The Same To Me It' starts off with a hellishly dull instrumental beat and one of the worst guitar parts I have ever heard, with only the vocals there to hold it up, but as the song progresses, some piano and raised intensity comes in to almost save it. In combination with the awful title track and the poor 'Kid Corner', the entire album gets off to a very poor start, which many will inevitably judge it on.
As I have already said, so many of these songs sound like low- effort b-sides that took five minutes to write. It's like I'm listening to a bunch of computer demos for a band about to go to studio to sort the bad from good.
