5 stars An absolute goliath of an album. This record is dark, atmospheric, mysterious... I first listened this album at 5:00PM while doing other things and I thought it had too much filler and very little content. Second time I listened it in the dark at 12:00AM and it was a truly surreal experience. The mastery of atmosphere is unlike no other, you get submerged in an endless space of psychedelic percussion and bizarre sound effects, slowly building up for a moment of beauty were chords strike in. It sounds obscure despite not being very heavy, which perfectly captures the escence of the original movie from 1922.

I really can't divide this record into tracks, I think this is one big piece of music that should be listened from beginning to end. It's very inaccessible but I'm thankful I gave it a second try. Don't be afraid to give this record multiple listens, because it will probably need them. Five Stars, one of the best atmospheric albums I've heard.

Ian McGregor | 5/5 |
