5 stars A five star review as I love this album despite not being a fan of extreme metal or harsh/screaming vocals/growling. This album manages to balance these elements that I dislike with great melody, emotion and superb clean vocals, melding these highlights with just the right degree of power, beauty and majesty alongside compositional excellence throughout. Many bands and albums in this genre have me reaching for the skip/eject button very quickly, not here however as the whole album is an engaging joy to listen to. Maybe I am a fan of 'harsh' after all; when done this well? A stunning album!
