Moonbathers (2016)

Often viewed internationally as another step back, this 5th full album was released in 2016 and charted reasonably well in the Netherlands, topping out at #15. Though it had the best artwork of the bunch (in my opinion), I’d probably name Moonbathers the weakest album. While there were still a handful of songs that I liked, there wasn’t the same appeal of listening to the whole thing on repeat over and over and over. Preceded out in 2016 by the Lunar Prelude (which I’ve previously mentioned (Sunday, I think)), Moonbathers included five original good songs, plus one cover, and the two put out by the previous EP.

Danse Macabre

This album I actually scrapped my original two songs in favor of two more that appealed to me more when I went back later to review the post. While the Monarch is a great song, it comes at the tail end of the album and is mostly an instrumental track—nothing wrong with that, just not what I felt like this week. Danse Macabre seemed more fitting for the band’s swan song.

Fire With Fire

Fire With Fire replaced the cover of Queen’s Scandal on this list. Both are strong, appealing tracks, but again, I just ended up enjoying Fire With Fire more when I listened midweek.
