I personally enjoy more the classical version on the deluxe edition.

I run a weekly Dungeons and Dragons game, specifically The Curse of Strahd, and the classical b-sides of this album are so fitting. Absolutely love it!

For the most part I found When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light to be more consistent and memorable, but three songs here blow that album away, namely: Keep Your Heart Safe From Me, All Hallows' Grieve, and This House Has No Home.

The production is excellent, the more frequent guitar solos are a nice touch, Cammie Gilbert was a great guest, and this album feels a little closer to their early to mid work on a writing level. But the rest of the songs besides the ones I mentioned are a little too average for my liking.

Maybe in a couple months it’ll click better, usually being in the heart of winter helps with their music.

Unfortunately, I didn't like it as much as the previous albums.

Beautiful album, enjoying it just as much as the last album. Can't wait to see them live in London next year

Its an OK album by STS standards.
Lovely melodic Doom as always, not a masterpiece and not a letdown.
Solid 8 from me.

Generic, uninspired and forgettable, all the tracks feels the same. But I will give a credit for the last one "This House Has No Home", it's OK.

Heck, I don't even remember the last good album of them, New Moon perhaps?

I will check the classical version, maybe the redemption is there.

Death, despair, melancholy, Gloom, Doom,...........and beauty. I started very late with this genre but since then I am in love with bands like STS and Draconian. Moonflowers travels through all emotions required for a Doom metal album. Surely among my top 10 of 2021.
In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘
