5 stars Great album!! It's nothing like their 2 previous albums, HEart of the Ages and A Return to the Aisle of Man. Don't be put off by the so-called black metal influences. You'll only hear two growls in the whole album and that's in I Am Your Flesh. So if you listened to the sample mp3 on the site, don't worry, not a single growl in site for the rest of the album. In their next couple of albums, the growls are taken away altogether. In The Woods' music is dark yet beautiful at the same time...it's definetly headphone music, and you'll need a few listens to hear everything. The use of the 5-string quartet and piano in their music is superb. The highlight of the album is the epic 3-part Omnio? (pre, bardo, post). The song has everything you could want in an epic..tempo changes, wonderful melodies, and great musicanship. The song keeps you guessing as to what they're going to do next and hardly anything is repeated. What really caught my ear is the great melody and lyrics that you'll hear in "pre"(done with male vocal) and the repeat of it in "bardo" (female vocal). Yet it sounds new because of the different vocals, the overall music, and the 15 minutes that past since you last heard it. I wish In The Woods... would get more recognition on this site, being the great band they are, or should I say were :(. 5 star masterpiece...ever since I heard this album 6 yeras ago, it still blows me away today.
