5 stars And so Arcturus evolved one more time. This concept album is much more oriented on atmospheric and progressive touches than the previous albums, which will cause regret for a few people who like the dynamic sound of TSM or LMI. We all do. But this album is still brilliant. The concept is about a space journey that turns into wandering, meeting strange creatures - lyrically Simen did an amazing job - and this perfectly suits to Arcturus. The lunar atmsosphere looks down upon the whole album and is a great stage for Simen's voice to perform on. His work here is pure beauty, very theatrical in the Arcturus tradition, ethereal, epic, goofy, even changing sometimes in laughs. All musicians are good, of course and the whole thing is steady, mature. This album may be not as mad as their previous works, but it's a unic piece of music, one more time.
Everlasting | 5/5 |
