2 stars Not the most easy accessible music, Goad's music. Normally, their music is pretty hard to grasp. And Goad has made it even more difficult for themselves with this low-fi production. The sound is pretty horrible on this album and it tries a hide and seek game in the speakers. And I have some good speakers.

The music here is downtuned doomy heavy prog. Quite sludgy at times and also a bit symphonic too. The guitars is so pushed into the background that they are hard to detect. The vocals is far too much in the foreground. The bass, tangents and drums is hoverings somewhere between the guitars and the vocals.

The music is not too bad. There are some good stuff here. But the sound has killed this album and that is a huge shame. Please remix and remaster this album, anyone.
