OMFG! When I pressed play I wasnt expecting to hear one of my favorite songs of all time. ''Ghost Trail'' is simply all that!

Great album.

member of the true crusade against old school heavy metal, early 80s thrash, NWOBHM, traditional doom, first and second wave black metal, old school death metal, US power metal, 70s prog rock and atmospheric doomsludgestoner. o/

I'm puzzled how this gets 8.3..

I'm also confused as to why this is the lowest rated of all their albums, granted it might not be -quite- as immense as the previous two but it's still better than most music being put out today and an absurdly fantastic album in its own right.

Amazing album. Only flaw is that it finishes with Following Betulas - and I often get impatient when I know songs like that are coming up.
VICTORY!!!!! (They love it in France)

My problem with this album is that Following Betulas is dimensions better than the rest of the album... Hard to listen to the other stuff when that waits at the end. Decent album though. I expected more.

A Lot better than Salvation IMO. More enjoying, variable, and strong!

This album was probably the first CoL album I properly got into and helped me become a big fan of the band as a whole, but having listened to their albums a fair amount over the past 2-3 years, I have to admit that it's not quite as complete a package as Vertikal or Somewhere Along The Highway. Still, Owlwood, Eternal Kingdom, Ghost Trail and Following Betulas are all great songs, and the other tracks are all enjoyable enough, if a step below quality-wise.

Having said that, the album art is amazing, and I am very fond of the CoL shirt I have with the Eternal Kingdom artwork.
