5 stars Oh God.. This music can't be described in words. I'll try best i can. I'm a progressive fan for so many years, i've heard so many different music, complex structures, insane virtuosity, but this.. Viljans Oga is another dimension.

This album sounds most likely classical music. Even after 4-5 listenings, i didn't understand what was going on my ears?!?

First song "Ur Vilande starts" with an amazing melody that you can't remember for a few listenings even how hard you try. After this very few listenings, you're going to remember it, but still with some notes missing. And imagine this album is full of melodies like this. Oh Whatever, this slow entering passage ends with a great time structured, powerful drums and the song starts to sing like an engine which is powered by musicians from outerspace.

You can't guess how many minutes has passed, it ends and the second song "Sorgmantel" makes its slow entrance as the first song. After this entrance it progresses with different instruments in and out. But at 8:27, a melody comes out of nowhere and gives shivers down my spines. This part is an absolute beauty for every progressive fan i think.

The third song "Snardom" starts with agressive drums, bass and flutes. Time signatures are odd but played perfectly by this great musicians. Every part of this song is top notch. Best song in the album imho. At the end a great melody comes again from out of this world like the way how the second song ended.

Fourth song "Langtans Klocka" is a little different from other songs. Its mood changes so frequently, like 2 or 3 songs merged. But anyway its a great song to my ears. It ends with a weird, circus like music.

And at the end of my review, i wanna say: "This is classic, a real classic with pure genius, outstanding instrumental songs" Easy 5 stars for me!
