No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Edge of Sanity - Crimson [1996]

I realised this wasn't on the blog and immediately took action. Another masterpiece from Dan fucking Swanö (yes, I do have to say his name like that) this is Edge of Sanity's first concept album. It's a story set in the distant future when mankind can no longer breed. That is until the King and Queen have a child which leads to a bunch of other weird shit happening. It's a strange story but in concept albums I suppose strange is always good. Anyway, this story is told through one song, yep, the whole album is a single 40 minute track consisting of more riff changes than you can shake a stick at, acoustic passages, clean and death vocals and some absolutely brilliant musicianship from the band. One thing I love about this album is how the riffs are used as part of the story, for example, near the end of the song / album they bring back a few of the very early riffs from the start, bringing the story together and closing it. Sadly this was Edge of Sanity's last great album before going downhill, Swanö would leave after the next album and the band would go on to disband in 1997. However, Swanö did return to write a sequel to Crimson (titled, you ready for this...? Crimson II!) in 2003 under the Edge of Sanity name. I may upload that sometime in the future but be sure to enjoy this great offering for now.
