5 stars These guys truly transcend time. With almost two decades separating this and Epilog it's hard to imagine they could employ the same writing prowess that made their first two albums so great. The album employs the same sound and writing as the previous. Beautiful passages mixed with intricate parts is what Anglagard does best, and the album doesn't disappoint in this regard.

There are only four songs and they are all fantastic. They do seem to go all over the place, but that just adds to the fun and chaos of the album. The songs are very similar to those on Hybris, so much so that if you switched the albums it may be hard to recognize when it was written (except for the up-to-date production, of course).

Overall, Viljans Öga is a very solid album. It is better than Epilog, but not quite as good as the masterpiece Hybris. For this reason, I give the album a well deserved 9/10.
