4 stars This is a concept album. "A story of love and sacrifice. A lovely creature attempting to find a deep connection to the world. But this connection has a price". Overall this record is ambient, warm, spacy and atmospheric with pleasant vocals. There are a ton of lyrics on this album, so there's lots to delve into if your really into concept albums.

There is light and dark though, and it can be moody, to down right angry as in the song "Where Mercy Ends". When that song came on I remember thinking "Is this the same album ?" Even the title of this song witnesses to the despair that arises when there appears to be no one to turn to, no one to help. Other highlights for me are "The Aberration", a passionate song with beautiful guitar and piano. "Private Hedge" features lots of atmosphere and some haunting guitar after 4 1/2 minutes. "This Afterglow" opens with acoustic guitar and reminds me of PORCUPINE TREE before the male vocals come in. Female vocals take over a minute in. This might be the best song on the album.

"The Interim" is a short haunting piece with more female vocals that sing "I've fallen...i've lost myself...and i'm afraid". I really like the guitar 5 minutes in on "Without Words". "Ornament" has some beautiful piano melodies and reserved vocals. "Magdelena Hell" is one of my top three tracks. Beautiful, spacey organ to open as reserved vocals and synths come in. Acoustic guitar after 1 1/2 minutes as the sound gets fuller. The guitar soars in this one after 2 minutes. Cool atmosphere to end it. "Incineration Point" is dark and atmospheric as a heavy sound comes in. "Through The Fountain's Eye" is another standout, this is brighter, almost uplifting.

This music really pulled me in, it might be a little samey but I really like this style of music. The follow up "Island Of Misfit Toys" is even better.
