I must say, just now finishing this record (it's pretty fucking long), I still have the last two to hear, but I'm disappointed. I felt like only Neptune and Mars were good songs (both by Mare Cognitum), the other ones, even for the style here, are pretty boring and uneventful.

Hopefully the last two collab songs will be much better

Edit: The last Spectral Lore song was surprisingly good. I cant say the collab was all that exciting, only two songs, one would think it's 20+ minutes of great music when in reality you get a literally 11 minutes interlude and then a proper song, all around sad stuff

Damn! this album is very long (115 mins) but yeah I enjoyed listening to this and of course I don't find it boring at all

It's a bit of a shame that it's so long, as I'm unlikely to go back to it much, but the music's pretty consistently excellent throughout - I preferred Spectral Lore's tracks early on but like the Mare cognitum ones more and more as the album goes on

'Earth' onwards is a sequence of songs eclipsing the previous one, but I think Neptune might be my favourite track here

Started my listening session at 1am and I almost passed out when it finished. Amazingly not boring considering it's a COMMERCIAL MOVIE length album; very space-ish
Shit talking and shit taste, whatever.
