5 stars This is just a wonderful album, so go download it, it's completely free. maudlin of the Well released this in 2009 so it's a lot closer to Kayo Dot than to their previous works.

The album starts with "An Excerpt from" and strangely it starts with a happy tune. Anyway violins join quickly and it concludes into a beautiful song with wonderful guitars. "Another Excerpt..." starts with a vibraphone, then it is followed by some woodwinds. There's a nice guitar solo, but the song lacks a bit in the end. "Rose Quartz Turning to Glass" begins with wonderful violins, then suddenly goes into a Floydian tune. "Clover Garland Island" starts with the first real metal part until here. It was shocking at the first time but it's awesome anyway. The song lacks a bit when vocals join in but continues well. The ending is just amazing, and leads well to the next track. "Laboratories of the Invisible World" starts just with a wonderful clean guitar. The vocals are beautiful, but after nearly 20 seconds they are stopped by a metal guitar that leads us to the best song of the album. There are beautiful solo and a long post-metal ending.

As I said before, the album is completely free. Just get it. 5 stars.
