Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

Finally figured out what the title track (vaguely) reminds me of - The Longest Day. Both have ominous intros with a cool build up. The difference here is that Senjutsu's chorus fits a bit better - it's more melancholy and reflective versus being overly joyful like TLD.

I have melodies from basically every song pop into my head at random, it's awesome. Songs that I was iffy on at first (Lost World, Celts) have become some of my favorites.

I love this album and am super thankful that we have it to play on repeat for years on end!

Days of Future Past ... again, the chorus reminds me of another track, I have it on the tip of my tongue... and I fail, but maybe I'll find it identified somewhere here in the comments and reactions. However, let me stress I really love the verse, the vocal melody and ... well, inflection there, and the cooldown before the third minute is a nice touch.

Overall, probably a throwaway track, all things considered, it's not gonna be anyone's favourite, but where TBOS had River, which I loved and Death or Glory, which I hated, this album already has a short track that I'm absolutely crazy about (Stratego) and a nice, good one. So the score's just better, you know?
It probably reminds you of The Book of Thel ;)
