Idea for Songs of Ascent
« on: November 01, 2017, 05:27:33 PM »
Instead of waiting four years for an album after SOE, SOA could be like an EP of some of the bonus material from SOI and SOE (like "7"). For example:

1. Lucifer's Hands
2. The Crystal Ballroom
3. Book of Your Heart
4. Sleep Like A Baby Tonight (Tchad Blake Remix)
5. There is a Light Lights of Home (St. Peter's String Version)
6. The Troubles (Alternate Version)

Really any combination of the bonus tracks from the albums.

What are we going to do now it's all been said.
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read.

No.  Not at all.  It became the two other albums.  They'll move on.

I've always predicted that they might end up releasing SOI and SOE together in a special edition with maybe new tracks and call that SOA.

Maybe people are hoping there will be, it will happen sooner than later and that it will be better than what has dropped recently.
Yup.
I said it.
I'm fully ready to deal with the backlash.
Hey, hey, sha la la

I think it could happen. But it won't be the same SOA that would've been released 7 years ago. All of SOA is what year hear on SOI.

It makes me curious about the direction they will go for the album after SOE. I know they say they have 2 or 3 albums already recorded, but I am sure that it they would hit the studio and also want to tinker with their sound a bit before releasing another album.  The problem is, it could be years out...years.
Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.

They've said that Songs of Ascent does exist many times since both SOI and SOE have been released, so while there's no doubt that some of the original post NLOTH SOA ended up on the next two albums, there are still songs (of ascent?) that exist separately.

I’m surprised to see my post bumped to the top nearly three years later.

It would have been cool to maybe see an EP with Lucifer’s Hands, Crystal Ballroom, and BOYH instead of them including those songs as bonus tracks for whatever reason. I’m sure most of SOA lies within the last two albums, but I’d still really like to hear the ideas they were working right after NLOTH.

when we were kids, my brother and i, we did odd jobs on the island to try and earn enough money to feed ourselves aside from the occasional meals the locals would give us

we had shelter in a really warm cave in the winter and a cool hut on the beach during the warmer months, but it was the yearning desire of the world outside of our own that made our formative years exciting, kept us going

on top of the hill overlooking the sea was a bungalow belonging to a rather eccentric older man

the man would occasionally come down to the village to gather supplies, often appearing unkempt and in several states of disarray

he rarely spoke to anyone or looked them in the eyes, had as little contact with the villagers as possible, and every time i saw him he was likely drunk and had a cigarette dangling out of his mouth or in his shaky hands

eventually one of my jobs when i became a teenager was to deliver supplies from the village store to people who had trouble getting around

naturally one day i had an order to go up to the old mans house on top of the hill, the village store owners warned me not to go inside of his house, which is essentially what everyone else said

my brother was off down by the sea helping rescue a baby octopus from a fishing net so i went up the hill on my own to deliver goods to the old man

i was intending to leave them on his porch and ding the chime and run off, however once i got to his house he was sitting on the porch smoking, and upon noticing me he waved me up the steps to his porch

his door was open, so he beckoned me to follow him inside,  hunched over from hurting his back in some sort of way, he struggled a bit to move around

i carried the supplies inside and set them down in his eating room

it was then i began to notice something about his house, it was not what i had expected at all, it was an absolute showplace inside, like a museum!

marble floors, persian rugs, antique furniture, elegant statues, portraits, aged copper lamps, lots and lots of bronze and brass fixtures, gold and silver behind display cases, what an amazing discovery for an otherwise typical island sea weathered house

i complimented him for the unusual appearance of the inside of his house, he frowned and grumbled something under his breath, then motioned for me to help him put away his supplies

after i was done helpin the old man, he motioned for me to follow him once again, this time over to a small egyptian chest which he opened and had obviously contained various artifacts

out of the opulent chest he fished a rather large tooth, he claimed it belonged to a tiger shark, he then somehow was able to thread the needle in his condition with a leather string and make a necklace out of it

he presented me with this gift, telling me that forty years before this time he had captured that shark in his net while fishing

as if to prove his story, he rummaged through some drawers in an antique cabinet and pulled out some old black and white pictures which included him and the shark on his old boat

one thing that stood out to me from the pictures, other than the shark of course, was how young and vibrant he appeared, also he was smiling

and the name of his boat; jonah's ascent

i never understood exactly what that meant at the time, but he was a dedicated fisherman, 24/7 back then it seems

eventually he was able to make enough money to retire and live comfortable in his family bungalow on top of the hill

the village down below hadn't the faintest idea that in spite of its rustic appearance this bungalow was filled full of treasure

apparently things aren't always as they seem
