Yeah... I just bought it today. Didn't get to listen to that much of it yet but it seems pretty good.
The tricky thing for me is that all of these albums have this 'epic' sound to them... they have these grand opening tracks and then they mellow down and get serious, with different high and low points in between... All of the songs, however, are roughly the same style of music. They might have a different sound to them, but they would all be classified in the same generic area.
The project that I'm working on is going to have a very wide range of styles such as surf, blues, rockabilly/rocknroll, punk, acoustic... This project in its working phase is only a week old... The singer started the lyrics months ago but the whole group just got together for the first time last week...
Anyhoo, the connection between the lyrics is very strong in my opinion, but how am I to go about trying to put these songs(of different styles) in a smooth progression? I'm afraid that the finished product might sound too choppy... If one song is an action-packed surf tune and the next song is a slow acoustic jam, how do I make the transition between the two? Because this is going to be a theater project as well, there will be some narration with underlying musical rhythms, so that might help...
Maybe its just too early in the creative process to worry about this, but it is the biggest obstacle I think I'm going to run into...
