A This album's like a walk in a labyrinth. It has this kind of fairy tale quality to it; it's quite lovely and fantastic, but with something that feels like a portentous darkness following you around or looming overhead. It's like the sun and the clouds or the forest and the clearing. Or that labyrinth I already mentioned... Prepare for a journey.

Wonderfully appropriate album art and modest, but special packaging with the disc. I'm very pleased! Favorite track: Vessel.

zen One of those albums that you sit and listen to with headphones and let take you on a journey. At times it's dark, melancholy and heavy, and other times it's atmospheric and hopeful, yet there's a really distinct mood throughout.

Hints of A Perfect Circle, Tool, Karnivool, Alice in Chains, Deftones, etc, yet something entirely new going on here. Expect lush guitars, dark soundscapes, tasteful drumming, and Maynard-esque vocals. Requires a few listens to fully appreciate. Favorite track: Vessel.

Howard Stevenson Beautiful stuff, reveals new treasures with every listen, fans of Mogwai, Oceansize, Amplifer, Vessels etc will love this. "Bones" is superb, especially the ending which caught me completely by surprise. More Please ! Favorite track: Bones.
