Guest review by
Sleep In Sorrow

Got a heartbreak? Dumped by your girlfriend? The girl you like won't look at you?

Then, I suggest you go listen to something else as this isn't the album for that... "Epistemological Despondency" is the debut of the English doom band, Esoteric, and there's not a single sign of love, joy, hope or any positive feelings in this album. AT ALL.
