Iceland has seen quite a number of bands churning out good albums lately. If that's anything to go by, then I really can't wait for this

I don't hate these guys, but I still have yet to understand what the fuss is about.

On listening to it, I didn't find it to be as good as their previous album. Songs seemed less memorable to me, but it's not bad.

I was very pleased the hear that they brought back volume and decent production with this album, aka the Solstafir sound whose absence made Otta sound weak and empty. This one took a while to get into but once I finally got into it I couldn't think of a whole lot wrong with it. The overall sound was on par with their best albums and the feeling was about the same. This album lacked the amount of atmosphere that Otta had but I preferred that it was more straight forward.

Even though I enjoyed this album, it wasn't as striking or memorable as Masterpiece of Bitterness, Kold, or Svartir Sandar. Half of these songs feel like they are always building to a part that they never get to and even the songs that seem to build to where they should seem like they could still use more of a climax, some more inventive writing, or more emotional involvement. I think this is probably Solstafir's most samey album too. I still like it for what it is because it is another good addition to their discography, but the writing could be better. Then I'd probably love it.
