5 stars After the first couple listens of this album, it appears to be a positive, mainstream, ambient, alternative rock album that lacks progressive elements.

Don't be deceived.

Although this doesn't sound like the kind of album that has dense material that takes many listen-throughs to hear, it really does grow on the listener. For a while I felt like only giving it three stars. But after re-listening to it a few more times I came to find that it doesn't have a dominant positive sound, and a whole lot of the lyrics and instrumentation are artistic and sometimes melancholy. For example, "Untouchable, Part 1" and "The Gathering of the Clouds" have unique acoustic guitar harmonies. "The Gathering of the Clouds" also has creative voice overlapping as different singers sing different lines at the same time. Many of the songs have powerful dynamics and crescendo to powerful heights.

I can really see myself returning to this album in the future.

Amilisom | 5/5 |
