Excited for the 320 leak. I have listened to anything but the singles yet and one In a million and I've really liked everything so far that I have heard. Most I have anticipated a DGD album since DBM2

This feels like a rock solid album if you count the singles. If you don't (because you didn't like some of the singles) it feels a little lacking. There are genuine parts that almost flourish with intrigue but never quite feels gratifying. However, I can't stop listening to Into The Sunset, the ambience that song puts off is just remarkable in my opinion. I admire them experimenting a little more even if it doesn't top their previous albums. It shows that they can experiment without selling out or switching their style completely to appeal to a demographic. They are experimenting for their own sake and not completely for others and that in itself is respectable considering no other band can sound remotely as close to them.

Overall: ~8/10

There are some serious bangers here, but there are also a bunch of underwhelming tracks. Easily ranked in the middle of the discog.

I’d give it another shot after 320 is released. I think it’s one of their best but that’s obviously subjective. My top 3 before this album were mothership, DBM2, happiness in that order.

I don't think it's going to make much difference, improving file quality isn't going to change the melodies, structures, lyrics or general vibe of the album. It may be one that grows on me over time. I think DBM2 is the best, followed by DGD then DBM..

lol @ all of you judging how the album sounds at 128 kbps. That's like judging taco bell without using any sauce. I wait, patiently.

Time to really dive in. Thanks for having the lossless up so quick. Can't wait for my bundle to come.

 

Edit: so many guitar parts I'm noticing that I didn't before.  There's a few parts the 128 sounded like bent notes but are actually runs and sweep picking. I'm also listening on much better headphones now so that couod be part of it.

Just a warning. Audio is corrupt on Born To Fail and skips over a section for anyone grabbing the flac version.

I just grabbed the 320 for that one track for now, It could've been a mistake on the official upload to streaming services. If not we are just waiting until tomorrow or until one of the staff fix it. Dgd had audio errors before with one of their instrumental albums, so who knows.

I’ve had some time to listen to it a few times now and not that anyone really cares for my opinion but here’s my take. I really enjoy about half the songs on the album and the other half are a bit forgettable to me. Especially “Born To Fail” “Parallels” “Into The Sunset” and “Calentamiento Global” which is actually a track I deleted because honestly I’m just not going to listen to it. I saw that a lot of people liked some of these tracks I mentioned but they just aren’t for me. I surprisingly really like most of the singles that were the most. I will definitely keep listening and spinning the tracks I enjoy like I did with Artificial Selection but I don’t think the replay value will be anywhere close to Mothership and Instant Gratification for me.

I noone going to mention the fact that Tilian fucking screams? This is easily my fave DGD album, such a step forward and Tilian's screams are godlike.

I found it pretty enjoyable. Not a masterpiece, there's some great tune, feels way more inspired than Artificial Selection, but it certainly is no Mothership. A good 6/10

I'm starting to wonder how this band would be if Andrew Wells became a full time member, especially the vocals

Alright, listened to it all the way through. Here is my 5 cents:
DISCLAIMER: I am a DGD fan.

 

Firstly, those that say this sounds like every other DGD album are dead wrong. This is the "least" DGD sounding of all their albums so far. There is some really different songs on this album that would not be on IG or Mothership.

 

Overall I found that I was underwhelmed by this album. Although the singles were good, they didn't really stand out all that much. Too much of the middle section of the album feels like filler songs. According to my total of each song rating this album is a tie with ArSe (both at 75%), an album which scored significantly lower than the next lowest DGD album Mothership which was at 92%.

 

Maybe in time I will find this album better than I do now, but as of now I am not really impressed.

 

P.S. How did Bless This Mess not make it onto this album!!!???

Is it fucked up that I wish Andrew Wells was the singer...don't get me wrong dgd can't make a bad song but maybe I've grown accustom to a new singer once In Awhile. They should at least have him in more then one song an album considering im pretty sure he is in the band now and it be nice to have different vocal styles throughout.

@Chief Hey just to let you know on the FLAC version "Born to Fail" has corrupted audio and skips forward several seconds at 0:43 and maybe on other parts too. Idk if u can do anything about it but I figured I'd let you know.

He should join the band and sing alongside Tilian. They both have amazing voices that can both harmonize and contrast with each other. It would be absolutely insane if they ever tried two clean vocalist on an entire album. That probably wont happen tho cus of reasons.
