From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars After reading so many wonderful high reviews on this site for this album, I decided that I needed to give it a listen. While, I am not a true fan of much Experimental/Post Metal bands, this is obviously not a regular offering from that genre. I would classify it as more crossover prog or prog-related. Melodic, tuneful, but no screaming or growling to be found. I really enjoyed the first few tracks, especially THIN AIR, but I found the rest of the album to be just more of the same. Not enough variety, the songs kinda run together with few memories lingering. I appreciate the ambience created, but I prefer my songs to leave some kind of taste in my ears. Good or bad. Here, Amathema have fallen in between. Nothing too great but not bad either. 3 stars. Looking to check out some other of their works to see if I may be missing something.
