5 stars A relaxing experience mixed with perfectly balanced moments of heaviness and energy, this is in my opinion the summary of what this album is. The songs are all long but never feel "too long" or boring to listen to, the atmospheric guitars all go slowly driving us to a peaceful mood, the inclusion of violins strength this element.

Most of the songs have moments of a burst of energy, especially "Another excerpt" with an awesome guitar solo in the middle of the song, the last song too inserts this same energy to the album which creates a variation inside the work that makes me keep invested in what is coming next.

Finally, I should comment on the vocals, who are only present in short sections inside the music but are always technically and lyrically impactful, creating the same sense of variation that the instruments make.

Definitely one of the best post-metal albums, in fact, is quite hard to tell that this is a "metal album" because of the slow pace and various experimental elements that are inserted into it, but independent of the labels that we insert here the quality of the work is great and is a "must-listen". 5 stars
