From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars First off, I have an open mind and listen to many genres of music, but I still cant see why Agalloch is appealing. More importantly, I can't see why they are listed as a progressive band. Perhaps if Agalloch were the only band with a somber metal style, they could be heralded (Riverside, Peccatum,mid-early Rotting Christ come to mind). This repetitive and frankly uninspiring music tries to come to life at point and nearly ceaselessly fails. I only give it 2 stars because I can see it being appropriately psychedelic to match some vague notion of the "prog" aesthetic. This is poppy mood music and not much more.
