3 stars Enslaved's FROST is not music that will appeal to everyone here; this is way more black metal than "prog metal". I love Enslaved so I have to admit my bias. This album has its flaws. The sound quality is rough, especially when it comes to the drums. The recording also does not favor the occasional keyboards, which sound a little ridiculous.

The songs are a bit long-winded. The album's title and cover artwork perfectly suit the music inside; this is a cold record. However, FROST is a significant move forward for the band, compared to some immature-sounding earlier releases. This is quality music, no matter what subgenre we stick it in. Only a consideration of how "prog" it is keeps me from giving FROST another star.
