I love this song and the rest of the first half of Descension....I felt the second half of the album was rather weak. I loved all of ascension, so I'm very happy with this release. Though if the back end of descension was good, I'd seriously consider this double album among the ranks of SSTB and IKSSE3.
I hope they build on what they've done here for their next release. I also think that Claudio's wife should do backing vocals on as many songs as possible. She was excellent in Mothers of Men. The song she took the lead on in the new pfi ep was amazing...I think it was called Erizo Schultz.
Agreed. I rarely listen after "Gravity's Union." If the second half of Descension was on par with the first, it would be a great overall album. I'd rather hear the live acoustic "Iron Fist" with Pennie on drums. As weird as it seems, because Eppard is notorious for being great at this, I felt like Pennie's version had more feel. Wasn't a fan of the electronic overdubs and stuff. I thought "2's My Favorite 1" was a very weak double-album closer too. It didn't bring any closure to the series musically (although it did conceptually). "Dark Side of Me" is good, but it's a 4 minute single. It gets old pretty quickly. "Ascension" is definitely my favorite of the two, but again, if "Descensions" second half was on par with the first, that album could've very well been my favorite.
