The song, "Enigma," is singlehandedly more brilliant than anything from his first two albums. Hopefully, the rest of the album can match its evocative power.

Ah, that's right. Should have ordered from a European distro...

I've been anxiously waiting for this to leak, are Europeans non-existent on the internet?

It's very probable that a CD-rip will be available within the next few days.

I'd be very interested in anyone who has heard the albums opinion. I quite like it myself, the second half of the CD seems to be going in a very different (and better) direction than the first half.

I don't like the album. When listening to it, I found that most of the few riffs were boring to mediocre (and not even close to Filosofem-quality), there were some attempts at composition, but most of them failed. I had the feeling that excessive reverb was used to cover up compositional failure. After 3/4 of the album I switched to Wagner, who made my day.
You said you were interested...

Of course, as long as the criticism is constructive, and I agree with you on several points, the excessive reverb sounds too much like later Xasthur and every other USBM band. However the album does have its redeeming qualities toward the end.

Obviously the word filter isn't too fond of US-BM either.

I thought it was way better than his earlier work. The guitars sound a lot like they were on Wanderings, which surprised me considering that was 12 years ago, but I think the keyboards complement the guitars perfectly. Listening to it in the dark the night I got it was really enjoyable.
