5 stars I love this album. It's extremely heavy and very riff based. And yes, I will say it, this album may take a few listens to get into. Everything is so heavy the first few times you listen thru you hear lots and lots of noise. After a few listens the melodies and harmonies work their way to your ear and you can appreciate the down tuned guitar and bass more. I find this to be a lot like Opeth where at first time thru Blackwater Park I hated them. After I listened to the album about 3 times though, I fell in love with it and now Opeth is one of my favorite bands.

With that outta the way, I would say this album really shine on Endless Sacrifice, this is definitly the best song on the album. It is very very very good. Also, they kinda of hid a "The Glass Prision II" on the album, This Dying Soul. It shares a few riffs with the predecessor and starts on part IV where Glass Prision left off. I like this album a lot, but I'd only reccomend it to die hards or people who listen to very heavy stuff in the first place.
