We seem to be in the minority who prefer the Dunes album to Solus? I feel like both sophomore efforts were a step forward from the debuts (and the personnel seems to be overlapping more than ever) -- but somehow while the expanded pallet makes Dunes sound even better, I prefered the more "focused & sparse" sound of the first Solus album (expanding the pallet in this case diffuses what made the original so unique.) IMHO of course (hi Ian!)

I think we are!

I'm not sure why I prefer Galaxsea to COTW, tbh.

I think it's something to do with the vocals being lower in the mix on Galaxsea, being more to my personal taste. Not that I've compared them straight after each other to prove this theory or anything...so I could well be talking complete bollocks!

I should have said I just prefer it and that's that! ; )

But unlike you I prefer COTW to their debut. Regardless of whether it's better than Galaxsea or not it's a fine album in its own right.

I can't remember if I posted this before so apologies if I have but I reviewed COTW here...
