Ummmmm hmmm this is a really hard question, i just had listen to all the covenant songs i have again but i think i might have to see Dark Techno (club version) kinda gets to me and i dont like helicopter that much. My mates favorite song is helicopter so thats kinda strange.but i dont hate them they just dont send cold shivers sdown my spine like the other songs do.\

i love no mans land and we want revolution i was kinda shocked to see how many of you dont like them.

RE: Songs you hate...your least favourite song! ;-)

alva myrdal

Although, I just got an idea. I think I'm going to burn a CD of noisy music and put it in my CD Clock Radio to replace the buzzer in the morning. :cool:

But my favorite is Covenants "Wall of Sound" :)

I'm sorry to say Invisible and Silent. When Northern Light came out, there were a lot of comments in the guestbook about how wonderful that song was. Comments like, "That's my most favourite song on the whole album!!!" And when I read that stuff, I kept thinking, "Are these people mad???" Oh, well, to each his own.

So, why do I hate Invisible and Silent? I just can't stand that Theremin sounding instrument! It's cheesy sounding and I personally think it ruins what could have been the perfect melancholy song.

And it isn't all horrible. The lyrics are haunting, the strings are beautiful, and I actually like the song from about 1:48 to 2:50.

But after 2:50, I have to turn it off and chuck the CD across the room....

Of course there are no songs written by COVENANT I really hate. I hate Soul and RnB-Music (I even do not really know why I still call this s*** music!!!)

But there is one song, I definetly do not like: One world one sky

The sound is too much "love parade", too happy, an easy message (every one can understand it...) and I do not like songs with only a few words in it...

Well I think i tend to dislike some of the more recent stuff from "Northen Light" especially...it was too pop, too light, too easy and too mainstream!

"Call the ships to port" and "Bullet" are good, the rest is quite vague (as far as I am concerned). I am definitely fond of the Sequencer/Europa era....songs like feedback, luminal, babel, like tears in rain...that is pure Covenant in my opinion.

I think some "underground" bands try to make their music more approachable to the "mass lambda" because record "sharks" companies ask the client to provide with a potential source of revenue and forget about the rest.
Artistically it can be quite dull (And One people...!!!)

Hopefully after the sony fiasco and the anti-piracy system that wouldn't let the cd even play on some people hi-fi/cd player,etc...and the departure from that label, I am quite sure that Covenant will bite back with a vengeance.
I can only hope!
Try reaching the top before the fall...

I just found this old thread and have to add here:

The song, that really annoys me is "happy man".... I know there ARE people, who love it, but I don't. That "Moog"(le?) sound reminds me of Super Mario World and I feel taken back to my elementary school times... maybe that's the reason ;)

"Hate" is too strong of phrasing; and I'm of course happy that it's such an anthemic club staple because that is integral to a band's success in this genre, and it's a good song in of itself, but




Dead Stars.



See- it even makes one prone to run-on sentences!

That's exactly what I was thinking when I heard it for the first time. :) I like it, but I feel that it's a track more suited to be an extra track on a single.

I'm also in the category of not hating but having a few that I don't listen to very often because they're not very appealing to me. Most of DOAC is part of that. And Invisible and Silent: Lyrically, I love it, but the music and the choir sounding chorus reminds me too much of the happy poppy crap that I've come to despise over the last couple of years. Which is funny, because a song by Fluke called Blue Sky is all happy and gospel and poppy sounding, and I love it to bits. Now there's an artist people should check out. And the solo project Syntax, which was made by Mike Tournier when he left Fluke.

Well, I was going to make some sort of witty remark regarding You Can Make Your Own Music :P, but it's escaped me. Probably wasn't all that witty anyways.

"We Break Down"

There's a whistle-like sound and a bell-like sound that give me awful flashbacks to Brazilian Carnivale music.

Yep.

Folks, if you haven't done so already, do check out Fluke and Syntax. They are sort of hit&miss, but when they hit they do it properly. Fluke's "Atom Bomb" is still (a decade later) one of the coolest songs ever made. Thelyricsare pure genius.

Cheesy Wipeout video

And Syntax' "Meccano Mind" rotated heavily in my CD player when it came out a couple of years ago. Highly recommended as well.

I third this opinion and a good variety of dance scenes really respond to Fluke's hits. Anyone who has seen the movie Sin City may remember Fluke's Absurd playing during Nancy's dance. ;)

Don't really know Syntax's work though. A quick search of my music library only shows a remix of Bliss by Felix Da Housecat, which ironically I bought earlier today on a compilation album.
