Listening Party Thread - Pawns & Kings

Post by maximzub »

I think it's about time this thread started.

So...what are people's setlist predictions for Thursday?

Well.. given that it's apparently all acoustic, my guess is something like this, in no particular order:
  • Silver Tongue
    Wouldn't You Rather (which I think sounds great acoustic)
    Addicted to Pain
    Ghost of Days Gone By/Wonderful Life/Watch Over You, but would love to hear Show Me a Sign
    All Ends Well
    Before Tomorrow Comes/Rise Today, wishing for Wayward One
    In Loving Memory
    Open Your Eyes
I think any mix of something like this would be great in a setting like this. Maybe there's a few new songs that they feel would be good acoustic...Looking forward to my first LP and meeting some of yall!

If I may add that they recently played Lover and Burn It Down acoustic.

Just arrived in Orlando for the listening party. Who else from here is going? Me and my fiancée's first time to a listening party!

Yeah, I'll be there. Will be flying out of LAX in the late night. Will be in Orlando at around 7 AM. Hopefully, will be at the Beacham at around noon to wait in line. And hopefully, this time around, if the venue security is going to split the line in two, they will do it in hours advance so people can pick a line or divide the line properly so that the people that shows up early gets their earned spot on the rail.

Some general questions about the album for those who will get to hear the album tomorrow night and hopefully return to TABN afterwards to share their thoughts/listener reviews...

1) How many songs had solos on the rest of the album?
2) How good did Mark sound on Stay? Any Myles vocals/harmonies in the song?
3) How epic was Fable of the Silent Son? Did it have any heavy riffs or instrumental breakdown sections? How many solos?
4) Where would you rank the album in their discography after one listen?
5) Could you hear any Mark harmonies on the unreleased songs?
6) Did the album feel too short for only being 10 songs/53.5 mins?

Myles sings in 'Stay' I read that in a review

All right, here I go. I’m heading to the Beacham and going off the grid now. Just know that I love you guys and that the next post you see from me is my short post reaction followed by a longer post somewhere down the line.

I feel like I’m going to be late if you’re already lining up!

I’ve got some running around Orlando to do this afternoon, hoping to be at the venue by like 4

Keeping last album's tradition, I see.

I just wrote a nice long post but got an error message after hitting submit. I’ll just say this.

AB delivers really well on the back half of the album.

I’ll try to cram more of a detailed post of the event itself on Saturday afternoon when I get back, but I’m really pleased about how this listening party went which is great, because I’m not having as fun on the trip itself so far. More to come.

For the people getting the error message while trying to post - try to remove some space between paragraphs, rearrange the message a little bit. No idea why, but it works.
