4 stars Doesnīt need any introduction to the album really, and no track by track either when itīs a couple of years the album saw itīs release date. I know the songs pretty well by now, and itīs simply a record you need to be in the state of mind to listen to all way through, a non stressfull mode basically, thou there are some catchy and more (poppy) parts it simply has the same problem as Porcupine Tree albums, especially their latest "Incident" itīs brilliant and psychedelic but lacks any real of punch and straightforwardness such as Remission. Thatīs where the minor issue is for me, it tends to get pretty heavy at times, and even in the heavy drone intro of "Oblivion" it sorta makes me want to tune my sterious up, but it doesnīt chance, the production simply lacks the punch that makes you go headbanging and go yeah! The times the riffs indicates that, the riffs and parts in general has much energy and is nicely composed and very catchy at times, but something just tells me that it lacks some punch in the heavier parts, but i will highly recomment it either way, Brent Hinds Osbourne like voice has never soundet better and Troys roars are still here to be found. - And plus that, Brann Dailor is allso singing, and if thereīre a Neurosis fan or two i could tell those who doesnīt know yet that Scott Kelly himself is participating on the title track.
