for some reason even though the song titles are the same as the other cd this one will have one song that's super heavy then a slow on... then the other cd 's version will be heavy then slow...

So then every song has a heavy and soft version? I was hoping thats how it would pan out, I still have to check out these albums.

Sometimes it's like that, but most of the time it's that Nervosa has songs that are either heavy all the way through or calm all the way through, and Anorexia is more on having songs that have quiet, acoustic parts, then heavy breakdowns.

Very... intersting CD ( CDs...). Completely different from their old stuff....

and the heaviness of the songs is... a different kind of heavy.. Similar to nine inch nails, in a way. But, still, a thought out and complex album!

I sure hope you're not one of those AoR haters.

Age of Reptiles is good.

it just takes a few listens to get used to it... This coming from a fellow who absolutley hated it because of the lack of sceaming and their seeming toned down.

I got Nervosa and Anorexia when they came out. I think I like Nervosa better, but I definitely think both albums are Showbread's worst efforts to date.

Come to think of it, the only album I really enjoy by them is Age of Reptiles. I guess I've grown out of them.

I gave it a 9. I much prefer Nervosa over Anorexia. I don't even listen to Anorexia any more.



AoR is my fave album by Showbread. It's awesome!
