First 6 tracks are enough for me to say I like this more than Choirs.

Or both? I think both, two good listens done and I think this will be my second favourite after Choirs.

Yes.  Kayo Dot retains their perfect discography.  Most consistently incredible band in prog history.

Choirs is in my Top 5 albums honestly. It's pretty hard to top that, i realize Toby is an actually progressive artist and tries to reinvent his music, but i wish i could have just ooooonnnneeeeeeeee more album of his that is similar to the styles of PtS and Choirs (i see them as a pairing for some reason).

Yeah, it's too early to assess its value relative to anything else, but I think we have something very special here.

It's surely pushing my boundaries when listening to the black metal parts. I'm not a real fan of those vocals and such - but it still has that ominous beautiful Toby creates on each album of his.

Yea you can't rate an album after a day or two
A real rating, imo, comes from time. 

Sure it doesn't have to be two months or something but obviously an album is either going to sound groundbreaking or just awful on early listens much more than after a while.

I think after repeated listens (yes, im going there) Hubardo may be > and/or = Choirs depending on my mood. This is a big statement from me, since Choirs is in my top 25 albums. We'll see a month from now.
INVOLVED: Electronic/Ambient/Progressive music. A collaboration between member of the post-rock collective BATTLESTATIONS and I. Enjoy!

I thought Vision Adjustment to Another Wavelength was humanely impossible before I heard Zlida Caosgi.

2nd Listen > 1st Listen

usually happens that way with KD for me.

Starting my first listen now!  I meant to listen on the big stereo but I forgot the amp was turned off and I usually like to let it warm up for at least 30 minutes for best results.  So it's on the dinky laptop, but enjoying it anyway!
