I often recommend people to listen to an album. But how often do I recommend that you watch an album?

Part of me is loathed to give this such a low score because there are some tracks I really like on here, but the majority of it is just horribly boring filler and I feel like my time was wasted.

To anyone who's the least bit curious, "Lucifer" "Asking The Void" and "A Valediction - Forbidding Mourning" is worth your time, everything else can be skipped.

And of course, same artist as from Borknagar's True North. Just watch that video instead.
That rug really tied the room together, did it not?
