Rating: 10 Truly magnificent album. While being black metal, it creates a beautiful, dreamy atmosphere (also due to the occasional female vocals) and is totally not hard on the ears, which makes it very relaxing stuff. Easily one of the most beautiful albums I've ever heard and I can keep listening to this without getting bored at all.

It's highly likely that fans of Summoning would also like this album.

Rating: 10 Absolutely marvelous. A perfect, dreamy, hypnotic black metal album with much room for variation.

Rating: 5 Ah thanks for reminding me about this Erik. I've been meaning to bulk up my collection of mediocre atmospheric black metal Nah, I love atmo black, but I just don't like this album.... at all....

  Haven't listened to this kind of stuff in a while but maybe I'll give this a shot at some point.

Too synth-driven for you? Too fantasy-influenced? I get it when people don't like it, but a 5, really? Well, it's your opinion.

I still love this album. Yes, it's definitely not perfect (for example, the screams aren't that great, but they don't bother me) but I still enjoy it immensely after many, many spins (30+ or even 40+).

Rating: 9 I'm with Erik and Monolithic on this one. Extremely atmospheric black metal.
