5 stars Agalloch's greatest song, and unfortunately, their last great work. This EP is made up entirely of its title track, a 21-Minute song with its own movements and characteristics. It's also the longest Agalloch track (and the only one to surpass the well-known-in-prog mark of twenty minutes). This is their most complex track and arguably their darkest, featuring voice tracks (from movies, if I remember right), atmospheric sections (typical in the good ol' Agalloch), crushing black metal guitars/drums and vocals that project desperation and anger. The ending of this song (and EP) has the best, most epic ending any Agalloch track ever had! This may be a little inaccessible for those who have not yet started listening to Agalloch, but if you have... What are you waiting for? You must check this out! Faustian Echoes is easily one of the three Agalloch tracks that deserve a solid five star rating, the other two being "In The Shadow Of Our Pale Companion" and "Black Lake Nidstang". Absolute masterpiece!
