That's fantastic! I'm really looking forward to what kind of live shows Billy has lined up for the official tour, he's been talking about some visual effects to accompany them playing the album!

Good news indeed.

End every show with Age Of Innocence and fireworks that form the SP heart when they explode. If you're reading BC, feel free to implement this idea, just make sure to give me a shout out during the shows! ;)

I wonder if there is anyone who finally cannot agree with the album.

You mean anyone that just doesn't like it? If I remember correctly, PistolPete wasn't that impressed was he? At least not on first impression I don't think he was.

Right, and I remember he liked Zeitgeist.
Maybe he needs some help... :D

After having a while to sink in (and after I did like it on first listen) I have a few things to say about Oceania that I really wouldn't have expected to be saying before it came out.

1. I like it even more than Zeitgeist
2. It's in my top two albums for this year (so far)
3. It *might* be in my top 3 SP albums

It just seems to get better with each listen :)

Well put - I'm right there with you on all of your points.

That makes Oceania Billy's seventh top 4 album! Great achievement for the band, especially in this day and age!

Some of the best things about Oceania (other than the generally great song writing) are Billy's vocals being the best they've been (on a studio recording) in years and Nicole's backing vocals, which I can't get enough of.

Ancestors - In Dreams and Time. I think that is my number one still, but I haven't listened to Oceania as much yet. I entered a song from it in the music taste thing, but here's another if you want to check it out:

Listen to "Inkless" and "The Chimera" isolated in that sequence.
If you ignore the synths in "Inkless" it feels like listening to two Pisces outtakes. :)

The Chimera sounds a bit like Today speeded up.

By the way guys, what's the SP album with the best flow to you?

Oceania and Pisces Iscariot for me.

so ive taken a break from listening to Oceania for a while, and coming back to it after a week of listening to other stuff, im not raving about it as much as at first. think i over reacted initially. of course, its a fantastic album, but as i currently stand, i cant list in my top picks. going to listen again a few times and then maybe my opinion will once again change.

I think my favourite section of the album is The Chimera/Glissandra/Inkless. I love all of these songs!
