5 stars Once in a while something happens that goes beyond all that has previously been tried, something that is so unique and original that it leaves its rivals in a cloud of smoke. Excuse me for being a bit dramatic, but to truly convey exactly how much I love this album I feel that grand words are appropriate.

I'll stay clear of describing the songs, because it would take up the better of a few pages for me to describe what it is that makes each song on this album brilliant, also much of the pleasure in listening to SikTh comes from each listen of the album when you find something new and exciting that makes you want to come back for more.

What can be said is this... This is, in my own humble oppionion, the greatest progressive metal/mathcore record to this date ever recorded. I sincerly think that you should listen to this record no matter what kind of music you are into, because SikTh is about the unexpected, breaking the patterns of what is considered right and wrong in music and making something exhilerating and beautiful out of it.

No matter what you feel about the genre, I recommend you let this record spin atleast once at home, afterwards you can throw it away if you feel like it(somehow I don't think you will) but either way you'll still have heard something truly unique.

A masterpiece in every sense.
