4 stars It's kind of funny reading the list of instruments that each member plays, and seeing the long list under Lars' name including mellotron, organ, keyboards, moog,etc. This is really an enjoyable album, bringing to mind SINKADUS, ANEKDOTEN and ANGLAGARD. I wish the vocalist had a greater part in this record because I really enjoy his singing.That's part of what I like about ANEKDOTEN, and I do find the vocals of the two bands sort of similar.

I'm not totally in love with the title song, it has it's moments though. In keeping with the name of the song it has many pastoral passages, and many tempo and mood shifts. I am quite impressed with "Rubato Industry", the drumming is incredible, lots of mellotron, great vocals, flute and a cool keyboard melody. The song gets very uplifting six minutes in followed by flute and piano. "Clair Obscur" is a complex instrumental that opens with mellotron and the song is quite powerful at times.The angular guitars are great too.

I'm looking forward to an even better result on their next album, but until then I will keep enjoying this is amazing record.
