Lemuria/Sirius B
« on: October 27, 2004, 03:21:03 pm »
I know Sirius13 considers both as the same album, but I don't. So, please, post here which is your favourite one and tell us why.

I vote for Lemuria: Sirius B is good in the whole album, but has no more important songs (all good; no one, or almost, best than the others) . Lemuria, IMO, is good as a whole and has some songs that are near the perfection: Typhon, Lemuria, An Arrow from the Sun...

Both are awesome, but I like Lemuria a little more... I think because of Typhon, Arrow from the Sun, Abraxas, and Ships of Berik, which are my favorite ones...

Sirius B also has good songl like Melek Taus and Son of the Sun, but there's just something that doesn't make it excellent, I don't know what, but there's just something...

I do consider them as one to compare against others, simply because it was all released as one.  

But I can separate them easily.  My vote goes to Lemuria, it simply follows a more dangerous, braver musical path.  I loved hearing Chris sing again, I loved a bit of a return to the "edge" that IMHO was somehow lost after Theli.  I love also that it is so multi-dimensional, incorporating the beautiful title track to contrast with the darker tunes.

Sirius B is great, there are fantastic songs within, but on its own it cannot quite compete with SotR, Theli or Deggial.

Lemuria however I believe competes in its own right, it has its own unique flavour which lifts it up high alongside SotR, T & D.

...add together Lemuria and Sirius B, consider them as one - and now you see why I think they are invincible!!  :D

PS  That's a cool avatar Carlios!  If I had to vote to choose best Avatar I'd be stuck between that of Manolo and that of Carlios.  I could not choose...

Helloooo everyone!

I feel bad prefering one more than the other  :(  to me they are both great! but since I must make a choice I vote for Lemuria and the reason is because it contains Three Ships of Berik which I think is the best song of both Albums...mmm  :rolleyes: although Persephone is cool too ... :P  mmmm this is a hard question!

Hi Luthien,

you forgot an important option: "How the hell am I to know which one is better?!" That would have been my vote...

Oh, by the way: Carlios is our Mikro Therion!

Cheers!

:P  ¡To Micro Therion!


I don't know, but everytime I see the cat Manolo has on his avatar, I just couldn't help but laugh, it's so funny...




I find Lemuria to be more akin with previous albums, nothing too over the edge, but IMO Sirius B seems a little more experimental, like the first steps towards something totally new, like Ho Drakon, Ho Megas and Lepaca Kliffoth were the first steps towards the style Therion has nowadays... that's what I think...

I refuse to vote. I can't say which one is better.
First time I heard albums Lemuria was better for me becouse of Typhon and Lemuria.
Then I listened Dark Venus Persephone, Kali Yuga 1 and 2. And then Sirius was better to me.
And then I was listening An Arrow From The Sun and Feuer Overtüre/Prometheus entfesselt and then
Lemuria was better for me. Now I am listening Call of Dagon and Voyage of Gurdjieff (The Fourth Way)
so Sirius is better for me. Tomorow who knows...

Although it's a very hard and difficult choice to make, I preffer Sirius B for 3 reasons: Blood of Kingu (simply the best of both albums, specially LIVE!!!!), Sun of the Son and Melek Taus

OK, Let's tie this pool for a little bit.
My vote goes to Sirus B. Although Lemuria is very good album, I think it is more standard and "easy to listen"... you listen to it the first time, you liked it, it is over.
However, Sirus B is little bit more complex and experimental (I belive), you have to listen to it a few times before saying: Yes, I like it (or not).
And yes, Blood of Kingu, Melek Taus and Sirus B make the difference for me.

They are two very different albums, and if there's something about Therion it is their ability to change and to show us uncomparable ways to listen to music. Both are good, just, they are different I believe

I give the slight edge to Lemuria...it was definitely my fave upon the first listen, but after a few more spins I began to appreciate Sirius B much more.  Either way, it's a damn tough call

Mmmmm....I think that i prefer Lemuria.
Typhon and Uthark Runa are great; Three Ships Of Berik and Lemuria are excellent (I really like Piotr´s work on it)...but Quetzalcoatl...doesn´t convince me yet. The rest is good but maybe i would change the songs order.
