  1. I’m mildly surprised that you guys both loved Urn by Ne Obliviscaris. Urn is certainly a good album, but my initial impression is that it isn’t better than their last album, Citadel. Knowing that you guys were disappointed by Citadel, I figured you might be even more disappointed by Urn. I realize you spoke to that point and addressed it. I think Urn is lacking any big “moments” or parts that just hit me in such a way to make me realize that this is great music, such as in the 3 note descending pattern of the song “And Plague Flowers the Kaleidoscope” on Portal of I, or multiple parts on “Devour Me, Colossus – Part I” on Citadel. While Urn may be consistent, it lacks a killer moment or part that gets me pumped up. That may change over repeated listens, as I fully intend to keep listening to Urn over the next few weeks in advance of seeing their show in NYC with Allegaeon.
