I've been two years late to find Judas Priest's new album, but once I did, I have this one to drop here

Anyone else think this sounds a lot like Sagisu? It wouldn't sound out of place if it were played over an Eva being deployed as an Angel is attacking

SPOILER: Show
"A Fair Judgement"

Losing sleep, in too deep
Fading sun, what have I done
Came so close to what I need most
Nothing left here
Cut the ties, uncover disguise
Left behind all intertwined
Lost control, moved out of the role now
Nothing's left here
Leave it be
It was meant for me
Soul sacrifice
Forgot the advice
Lost track of time
In a flurry of smoke
Waiting anxiety
For a fair judgement deserved
Another jaded man.

Two of my all-time favourite albums that to me are all about Instrumentality: In Rainbows by Radiohead and ( ), or The Bracket Album, by Sigur Rós

In Rainbows, as with a lot of Radiohead/Thom Yorke music, invokes feelings and imagery of water, isolation, the primordial sea and the ever-oncoming apocalyptical flood (which is a blunt metaphor for global warming, always a major theme for Thom and company post-Kid A). Here, though, visually the music is imbued with hues of orange and tungsten - our LCL - given form by the string section, arpeggios, synthesisers, intricately picked guitar chords and warm chesty vocals, sometimes whispered. Heck, there's even children's group vocals - our childhood memories - in the opening track. I couldn't paint any easier of a picture in the parallel, could I. Even the titular rainbows and cover art tie-in. Also, the band have stated in an interview around the time of release saying it's basically about loss and "the fucking panic of realising you're going to die."


Now, The Bracket Album is much more obtuse and more of a nebulous association. It's mostly instrumental (lol) with little use of vocals, and what is sung is sung in a made-up language; Vonlenska AKA Hopelandic. The lyrics have a make-of-them-what-you-will effect, tipping directly into your soul. However, the key conceit that plugs it in is that the album is clearly divided in two - each composed of four songs - with a strong progression throughout. The album starts out optimistic, warm and beautiful but it gets darker, more sparse and introspective as it goes on until the end. In this way it's a reversal of Shinji's experience, or the experience of an individual who has an opposite outcome; someone choosing to go off into the deep end, divesting their individuality and corporeal identity. The music itself - ambient post-rock - is cinematic in sound and scope. A four person band producing something as large and great as a fully fleshed out orchestra. The music here is deeply tied to a personal Tokyo-3 before and after Third Impact; entire places, moments and people come and go between notes. This is the soundtrack to Instrumentality.

Interesting choice! Very dense album as well, I have to admit I can only really listen to Revealing Science Of God and Ritual in its entirety, middle two tracks do very little for me. Although one of my headcanons is that Kaworu would find Yes to be a remarkably interesting band and might enjoy Tales.

Genesis' rock opera The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway has quite a few selections that remind me of Evangelion. "it." is my favorite song from the album and the most evocative of the series for me, where the journey of our protagonist Rael comes to an end via the dissolution and deconstruction of his surroundings, as well as himself - not unlike the dissolution of humanity in Third Impact. In fact, many of the songs are vignettes of Rael's surreal, introspective quest ("In the Cage", "The Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging", "The Chamber of 32 Doors", etc.) that call to mind Shinji's confrontation of his inner demons during Instrumentality.

Oh yeah, and there's a song called "Lilywhite Lilith". You'll never guess who that is. :wink:

EDIT: Seems like I'm not the first one in the thread to make this link! I'm glad jcmoorehead and I share similar tastes in music.
