I liked this, some cool songs, will be interesting to see what the next one is like, looking forward to some more metal from Devin.

Loved the female vocals. The rest of the album is some of the best slow, ambient stuff he's ever done.

Who quotes my "marshmallow of sound" comment? :lol:

And I really love "Trainfire." It's a favorite of mine on this one. Great album, though. I never skip a single song.

Still haven't heard this all the way through. Just a few samples here and there, but I know it will be out of this world.

I'll admit it took me a while to get into this one. But now I really like it. I don't find it's the kind of album you can put in the background but some songs are pretty wicked, like Trainfire. That song just has one hell of a vibe and it's a blast to listen to. I'm sure a lot of people will be put off by how "mellow" it is, though.

Same. The first half fits the chill/fun mood of the album great, and then the part after the near-silence is super beautiful.

Anyways I love Devin's quiet side that he shows so much that I'm almost disappointed he'll be releasing three albums that aren't in the same style as Ki. I'm sure they'll be awesome too.

Also apparently that Anneke is not only singing on Addicted, but that she's writing the new Agua De Annique album with him. :wub:

You will like it when you hear it. It sounds like music that would go great with video games droning on in the background while drinking mead. :ph34r: :D <--emoticons

Hmmm... that sounds strangely familiar.

Someone mentioned them doing a new version of a Ziltoid song, too, with her singing. That'd rule!

I love when he goes harsh with the vocals at the end. So badass.

It is so hard to find anything wrong with this album. I'm going to stop looking.
