Ive been listening to Not Of This Earth and Super Collosal, to do a bit of comparison. I have mixed feelings, both are good albums but have a lot of differences.
- the latter is definately put together better, recorded better, and there is a wider variety of sounds
- Not Of This Earth has a lot less layers and is i guess more straight foward. To me it sounds a lot cooler
- Satch's sound, you can definately hear the marshall in Not Of This Earth, compared to the various amps in the latter.
- To me it feels like musically satch has explored more ideas in Not Of This Earth, scale wise i think. Just listening to memories, there is definately pentatonic, harmonic minors, etc (even some parts sound like something malmsteen would play: 1:39-1:42 , 1:54 - 1:59 and so on)
I guess im asking what do you guys think? which album do you prefer (referring to his older or newer stuff) I dunno to me the older stuff sounds much cooler, esp Not Of This Earth and surfing w/ alien
but the latest stuff feels more emotive i guess
