5 stars OK, it's been several years since this was released and several years since I bought it. So what compelled me to listen to this album again? I don't know, but it also compelled me to write these few words.

If you're into gloomy, melancholic Nordic prog, this album is for you. If you like Anekdoten, Landberk, etc, this album is for you. The only thing is, I like this album better than anything Anekdoten has ever done- and I DO like Anekdoten.

Dark, dreary, depressing. These are the kind of moods this album conveys. It is one of the most mellotron heavy modern albums I can think of, and it's really great stuff. The mellotron is the dominant instrument here, although the guitars are also featured prominently- at times on the heavy side. Daniel Solheim, the singer, fits in perfectly with the music, and at times, it almost sounds like he is crying the lyrics.

To me, the highlights here are the 2 longest tracks, "Elegy" and "Make Me Believe". However, each track on the album is worthy of a high rating and the whole album flows from start to finish. Sadly, I think this will be a one shot release. However, it certainly will never be forgotten.
