5 stars OH MAN, This album I love, love, love so so so much. As I write this, it is currently my favorite album ever. It is perfect. The lyrics, the music, the singing, it is all fantastically marvelous. This is a very solid performance on VDGG's part. Just spectacular. "Pilgrims" kicks things off the right way, aggressive, catchy, and thoughtful lyrics. As the album progresses, it develops into a mighty snowball of prog! My favorite song from "Still Life" would definitely have to be "Childlike Faith in Childhood's End". I love the somewhat atheistic leanings of the lyrics (seeing as how I'm Atheist myself), very beautiful. I highly recommend this album to anybody, it is pure bliss everytime I listen to it.

1. "Pilgrims" - 10/10

2. "Still Life" - 10/10

3. "La Rossa" - 9/10

4. "My Room (Waiting for Wonderland) - 9/10

5. "Childlike Faith in Childhood's End" - 10/10

48/5 = 96% = 5 stars all the way, baby

Lark the Starless | 5/5 |
