tbh I hope he writes using fewer odd patterns in the future, that shit is getting tiring. He should try a drone album or something soon.

That new track is pretty sweet. Too bad the last minute or two sucks balls.

I like his one off tracks. "You and Yours" is still one of my favorite songs of his.

I get what you are saying, but Fade seemed pretty straight forward to me. Off the top of my head the only song that had anything kinda crazy going on time-wise was the last track (not the bonus). Nothing wrong with the classic 4/4 considering it's naturally easy to get in a groove with. Can't lie though, I love trying to write shit in odd sigs.

I think there is a great difference between writing songs for the sole purpose of having odd time, and another for those who add it in as a mechanism to enhance the groove.

I've always felt that Ben tries to abide by the latter, which is much preferred. If anything, what I have taken away from his most recent releases is that he is simply growing up; He, along with most of us, have been playing and listening to music with complex time signatures for a good while now, so I think its perfectly reasonable to want to explore some other venues at this point in the game.

When I write I don't even view it like that. I just write a riff. If the riff happens to be 4/4 cool, if it's 5/4 cool, if it's 11/8 cool. As long as it sounds good and you can put it all together nicely. I definitely do know people who are like, "Hey dude let's put this part in 7/8 over here cause it will fuck up the whole song and throw people off." And hey that's a style I've done it before but I don't anymore.

On a side note I listened to The Discovery today for the first time in probably 2 years and holy shit, I completely forgot how unbelievably good that album is. I wish he fleshed out those EPs (Portmanteau, ]]][[[) and made them into entire album, because I loved both of those but I wanted soo much more. Beacons was great but did not live up to the EPs preceding it. I love Let Yourself Be Huge and Fade. While I am happy that he's going in a different direction and experimenting with other ideas, I still get the urge for him to bust out with a big ass heavy riff alternating between 11/8 and 7/8.

Re: Everything Cloudkicker (surprise inside)

Haha, gotta agree with you on that. I'm really thinking about opening it up in my daw and separating out all the tracks. On the other hand I'm glad he went back to the heavier sound and I can't stop listening.
