The 2023 albums poll: PETRODRAGONIC APOCALYPSE v. THE SILVER CORD

Unless they pull a surprise release of the long-rumoured “2 Nonagon 2 Infinity” or something, it looks like these are the two records we’re getting this year, and I’m curious: which one did ye prefer?

  • Petrodragonic Apocalypse
  • The Silver Cord

The option for Silver Cord encompasses both versions btw.

In case you want a refresher:

Haven’t listened to PDA in full since, but one surprising thing is that getting familiar with TSC has made me appreciate it’s
counterpart more than I originally did. It’s wild to think that they jammed both in studio, obviously they are so much more comfortable on guitars in that genre as TSC sounds a bit clunkier in comparison.

I like both albums. And they are too different to say this one or that one is better. The normal versions on TSC are great, the radio edits not so much, but still good.

PDA has the driving energy that drew me to Gizz in the first place. I should have given the Silver Cord a better chance but electronica isn’t my favorite and there’s just been so much other good music lately from other bands. I had the same reaction with Changes though and now its one of my favorite albums, so who knows.

I thoroughly enjoyed both but Witchcraft is my favorite song across both albums which was the decider for me.

both are great but Silver Cord got me more…Dragon is 9:44 min of amazing music still…so

Looks like PDA is winning out, which is great to see. I don’t think it slaps as hard as ITRN, but I really dig it all the same. That said, I’m way more curious to see how they expand on the stuff they toyed with on Silver Cord; even after 2 full albums of synth goodness it feels like they’ve barely scratched the surface there. Gizz gabbet album next? :thinking:

yeah on relisten, PDA is superior front-to-back, but this is the best track from either. No matter how good Supercell sounded while playing Doom, the title track from TSC (either extended or standard) is one of the best things they’ve ever done IMO.
