5 stars Nothing is perfect, not even this album. However, some efforts has to earn masterpiece status, if only for how original their sound is (and still pleasant - am I right ? there's nothing ugly on this album, so this should be valued a lot). Cover perfectly describes the mood of this album, playful, colorful, fantasy-like and revoking medieval instruments (Crumhorn anybody?) with something I deeply admire, chess game. I though many times about name of this album, so twisting and interesting, really can occupy the mind for a while (I'll leave you with this statement). Multi-layered and multi-instrument using at once. Truly music, where you can close your eyes and feel the dreamy fantasy landscape, castles in the sky, sunny beaches, distant meadows (not fenced ones) and simply imagine all of this. You can do the same thing (sometimes) with post-rock too (most prominent genre), but that's not the same, as this is direct shortcut (repeating myself) to beautiful sounds. Just feel the harmony in it and you'll see.

5(+), but result may vary after some time, so expect editing, if necessary. I don't edit much, as I mostly review when I feel like I have heard enough. And with this music I'll never have enough. Hope their other albums are as good as this.
