5 stars This album is my favorite out of all MIJ albums I've listened to ! Dense in alternating various immersive moods, from eerie moments ( lots of tension, the music seems to have been designed so as to have Lovecraft monsters appear ) to comforting moments. The lyrics hint at romantic / fantastic litterature, some are about hope and fulfilment. Both the music and the lyrics (all by one single author, and a musical world with strong identity ) though an excerpt from a poem by Clark Ashton Smith was used for the first piece are worth my time and focus at listening.

For the anecdote, Porcelaine, one of the pretty lot of "earworms" one can find in MIJ (though definitely not elevator music's earworms !! best, Wish to Wish, Arianna are in the list ) reminds me of Depeche Mode ! I'm less into the two last tracks, otherwise I dare consider this one standing out as my nr one by MIJ (and what I enjoy in it I prefer to a huge mountain of other projects !).
