5 stars Amazing album. Tough experience, to be honest. The band explores quite a lot of different areas, with wide and deep range of dynamics. From beautiful quiet symphonic melancholy to some screaming loud overdriven schizophrenia. Back and forth. Frequently. And it's rather gloomy all the time. Atmosphere of the album might be a little overwhelming. But the content itself is no less than amazing. It's actually a serious modern composition. There are many, many instruments, all used on purpose. There are all kinds of keyboards: Mellotrons (tons of them!), organs, pianos, synths... There is an entire wind section, all basic rock instruments and vocals and some orchestral percussion. All of these tools are used wisely, and it sounds so much bigger than just a band. There are so many textures, odd time grooves, breathtaking melodies, unexpected turns of events. Complexity is just outstanding. Pieces are very coherent. It's also produced extremely well. Sounds like years of hard work obviously. But most of all, there is some magic to it. It's a soulful, passionate, rich beautiful music. A fable from one of the darkest countries on earth. It's a five stars album, out of the question.
