5 stars I can only agree with the last (and some more) reviews on this album: a masterpiece! I just got interested in this album by reading some reviews here on the site and decided to just order the album; without regrets.

However: sometimes it doesn't turn out this way. I also bought a lot of albums from Dream Theatre and King Crimson by reading their reviews, but I wasn't impressed. For me music is emotion. Therefore the music has to "touch me" in some kind of way, which for example DT's music doesn't, but Riverside's, Opeth's and Porcupine Tree's music does. Don't ask me why: tastes are not the same and one cannot dispute about personal tastes. For me I guess the music in itself has to be quite complex, but also not too complex (meaning experimental). I think Green Carnation found the perfect way to blend musical styles and genres, since this is definitely not a pure metal album!

Great concept of the album is that it only consists out of one 60 minute long track. In this track there's a big variety in moods and tempo's, varying between classical, acoustic to heavy metal riffs, but always for the sake of lifting the music to a higher surface. Tchort is a mastermind and this album only makes me more curious after other GREEN CARNATION and IN THE WOODS. albums. If I could only take ten albums with me to a deserted island right now this would definitely be one of them!
