I was really surprised to see that this outstanding album didn't have any reviews here. In an effort to make that right, lets start. What we have here is an album that consists of only one, 40 minute long song. For those who are not familiar with Crimson yet, don't be afraid. Songs over 10 minutes long are not so uncommon in metal, but even the most progressive of bands often fall into the trap of making them too dull and not really enjoyable after first few minutes - the story about Crimson Queen is definitely not.

Perfect album. but imo it would have been even "more perfect" if the vocals were made only by akerfeldt


I disagree, Dan Swanö is a great vocalist, whether he sings clean or growls, just as good as Mikael, if not better.
