5 stars Good god. I knew they were good, but.... After literally minutes of anticipation, my favouritist band release their debut album. (Cautionary tales being just an LP, which explains why two of the songs on that appear here... those new to the band, ignore that, get this.) And guess what? It's one of the best albums this year...

The opener, Aeropause, is an instrumental/overture, although the links with later songs are not particularly obvious. This leads nicely into Goshen's remains, a nice enough song, probably with a mind for single release. Apprentice, one of PRR's older songs, (2001!) finally gets its album release, with a re-recording, for legal reasons... anyway, this is an insane song, one of the finest on the album. The best song on this album is probably The twyncyn/trembling willows-the dynamic movement of this peice is simply incredible! Overall, PRR's amzing vocal style, tight compositional skill, and the way the whole album slots together mean that from start to finish, this is worth the five stars. I try to refrain from giving five stars, because very few albums truly are classics, but here I have no resevation whatsoever. GENIUS.
