Not my favorite WITTR album, but that doesn't say much I suppose. That said, this album has one of my favorite black metal album covers ever; it's so simple but majestic and evocative

Great album, Queen Of Borrowed Light is an awesome song. Yet I thought that the album is too long for its own good.

In that case, man is only air as well.

I agree, Queen Of Borrowed Light is a brilliant song. The others are still very good, with the last 5 minutes of the album being totally awesome. Though I don't really think the album is too long.

Too long ?
I believe there's a STOP button on any types of player. Genius

What kind of stupid, backwards logic is that. "I hated this album, it went on for way too long. Luckily my stereo had a stop button. I give this album 10/10." Genius.

Actually, I'd say GB is an advanced kind of troll. A special kind of troll, if you will.

Strange, because the band still sells the cd at their gigs for a normal price.

the WITTR website store doesn't have the cd or vinyl, and there's only vinyl at discogs all around the $100 nz price before before shipping.

I can't remember any of the record labels having it either, and nothing on bandcamp, haven't looked on ebay in a while though

No new CDs on the UK Amazon that I can see. Second hand ones start at £70. None being sold on eBay. Sounds like it needs a reissue.

All vinyl versions have been sold out for ages (both pressings by Southern Lord and the 3LP pressing by Van Records which includes a bonus song from their demo)

Thank God I have both the Van pressing and one of the Southern Lord ones on vinyl and also the cd.

Very, very enjoyable. The atmosphere is overwhelming and most important, is not that hard to digest, even if the album is one hour long.

yeah, it's not that long at all, just a little over an hour. most people's favorite wittr album, Two Hunters, is like 45 minutes

I believes not really. STOP button - yes, but navigation option - NO!!! So he may have sit through the entire albums to find if any good song were there.
