Each of his albums is better than the last one. Probably the only artist I can say such thing about him.

I can't deny that it sounds beautiful but I have this feeling that he has now released the same album for the fourth time. And the harsh vocals are bad, they sound like a dog barking.

Great album, shame it is so short.

Songs are really good except the length....
In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘

I think this one is a step up from Guardians but not by a whole lot. The writing is more interesting and songs more memorable but there isn't much here that I haven't heard before. Everything on this album is good but, like a lot of people are saying, it feels a little short as an album. Neige's and Sophie Rogers' vocals were a nice addition but they only made it more apparent to me how much Andy's vocals need some variation instead of the usual monotone delivery. I was hoping by four albums in we'd see a little more growth.

This guy cannot make a bad album. There is something hauntingly melodious about all the songs he has written till now.
Leeches everywhere.

Monadh is phenomenal, and the closer's orchestral harp sound is a really nice way to end the album.
"It washed away in a tide of longing, a longing for a better world..."

6.5 = good album
