I've had Soen's _Lotus_ album on repeat all day, so I did a little bit of homework. People compare them to Tool, and I get it: progressive, metal, thoughtful, complicated. But I don't hear Tool in their sound at all. I hear Katatonia, which is a very good thing. Love this album.

@ferds Haven't gone back to listen to older material but I hope it's as good as this one, because Lotus is pretty terrific.

@scrivener The only criticism I have of their first album is the mixing. The vocals are too loud for me. I hope the new stuff is mixed differently?

@ferds I'm a little sensitive to bad production, although I don't think I have a particularly good ear. I think this one sounds great streaming on Spotify.
