Ringleader Of The Tormentors

For all things concerning Moz's solo career.

Postby HadjiQuest » Tue Apr 04, 2006 8:01 pm

IT'S AWESOME!

Compared to You Are The Quarry, I think I like Ringleader a bit more. Quarry had a few spotty moments, and all-in-all didn't feel as cohessive as Moz's previous albums. Probably because it was a collection of various material he had written in his 7 years without a label. Of course, that thematic approach to the sound returns with this album.

Lyrically, he doesn't reach the same highs he did on Quarry's better tracks, but neither does he hit the lows of that album's worst. His vocal range isn't tested as much as it was on Quarry, either. I also have to say that lead-off single "You Have Killed Me" is one of my least favorite Mozzer tracks, ever. Luckily, the next two singles are much better.

It's fantastic to see him back to the tight, thematic approach to melody and lyrical content that was displayed so heavily in his earlier albums. I don't know why, but I really like digging for connections between tracks. I've always looked at his albums as concept albums.

That's a nice little summation there, Matt. You add in interesting note regarding the concept album, too. I'm still waiting for mine in the mail, I didn't enjoy hearing it streamed through Amazon. I'm waiting for the full spectacle of sound that a stereo system can give!

Ohh my god, "In The Future When All's Well" is such a great song.

I can't stop listening to it.

I got it Monday. It's beautiful!
the cover
the inside photo
the disc itself
the songs
his voice
the words
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

The Dvd should be longer though :P
I love "I will see you in far off palces", "in the future when all is well", "life is a pigsty"and "I'll never be anybody's hero now"
I can't really compare it to "You are the Quarry" as i actually haven't heard it :unsure:

My favourite lines off the top of my head are:
I once thought that time accentuates despair, but now i don't actually care
Here everybody's friendly, but nobody's friends
It only hurts because it's true
Even now, in the final hour of my life i'm falling in love again
Living longer than i had intended- something must have gone right
Image

And now you know the truth about me, you won't see me anymore!
But i'm still fond of you...oh oh

Debuts at #27 on the Billboard pop charts.

<a href="http://billboard.com/bbcom/charts/chart_display.jsp?g=Albums&f=The+Billboard+200" target="_blank">Here's</a> a link if you're remotely interested in what's 'hot' in the U.S.
I guess I'm more than happy to live in my little own little musical bubble. I have no clue who Rascal Flatts are.

I won't bother trying to understand the charts. I never have. But I'd have thought ROTT would have fared better than that. It's a better album than YATQ, in my opinion, and despite the streams of his album available, I would have thought it would attract more sales. Maybe they'll continue to go up, instead of plummet out of sight in the next couple of weeks.

_____________
I've put up a poll to see who plans to buy the album. I don't think it warrants a separate thread as any poll replies regarding ROTT can just remain on here.
