This album starts off... deceptively good. The strings and saxophone are just beautiful and its shame that they are never used in the same fashion for the rest of the album. What follows is a string of blandly written songs with a god awful vocalist and poems which are just a pain to listen to. You would think the instrumental would be good but simply put its forgettable. they at least did seem to try to create an ambitious album, its just not all that fun to listen to.

Second that, "Sun I Call" is one of my favorite Solefald songs, but then it gets...
Or I just need to get a deeper understanding of their newer albums. Ambitious, that's the right term.
