5 stars First of all, before we get in the dabate of knowing if Borknagar is black or progressive, let's start by saying that, i am not a fan of black metal, not at all, but i 've heard the instrumental song the weight of wind, and i really got something out of it. The rest of the album is just perfect, the black side of the album, is not always present, and the clean voice make's the grim one more accessible. The orchestration in this album is fantastik, with all the changes of mood and the omnipresence of up-tempo beats, the final result could be classified as great black prog metal, a true wall of sounds and power, but also very "proggish atmosphere, with . Songs like Cyclus, sealed chambers of eternity, Circled or the magnificent song called the wonder come to close the album, with an epic song that contrast beautyfully with the heavyness of the rest of the album. BORKNAGAR, HAS, on it's own redifine how black/death metal could adjust, in order to become enjoyable for non-initiated fans of louder and heavier music. Excellent musicianship!!! After, more than 30 times of listening this album, i am far for getting tired of it...if it does happen, i wil run to buy their previous albums, because this one is amazingly great.
