The climax in the last half of Sleep is as close as musical perfection comes. In fact the whole song is gorgeous.

A great album but too demanding for me to listen to often.

I sleep to Sleep cause it's gorgeous and haunting at the same time... This album sounds sweet if you listen to it with rain in the background.

The last 2 minutes of Antennas To Heaven make me want to believe in God.

Help me out... This is what I've been able to decipher from the Pastor's sermon in Static and what I still can't make out. If you can fill in any holes I'll love you forever.

It takes a holy life, it takes emotion, it takes dedication it takes dedication it takes a (death?) and only God can allow it, you couldn’t do it if you’re not the seed of God and so the path and the great quarters these are quarters unto his perfection that is which the prophet and the (?????) has penetrated that through this great sea of blackness that I have penetrated through these quarters and I went through that last segment where I went through these dark serpentines. I passed through that quarter where they set, where they are. When you penetrate to the most high God you will believe you are mad. You will believe you have gone insane. But I tell you if you follow the secret window and you die and (you go nature???) you will penetrate this darkness. Oh yes there is many a man or woman who can (sit?) in the same asylum (something I can’t decipher) and they’re sitting there today people think they’re insane but they saw something that was real. And they see it when they are on drugs or the thing is they see it not through the light of God. The way I showed you, you will see it through the light of God and the understanding of God because when you see the face of God you will die and there will be nothing left in you except the God man the God woman the heavenly man the heavenly woman the heavenly child. There will be prayer on your lips and eyes. There will be a song of human (glee?) waiting for your king. There will be nothing that you were looking for in this world excepting for your God. This is all a dream. A dream of death. And so I went through that window, ( something about hell and the higher order). And I went through one I showed you (something about a dream?). The question is asked (something about summons?) concerning the pitch. This horrible excuse of my ( I have no idea… fail…) if someone can ask me a question. If it’s asked from the right being or the right soul out of (idk…) I can give you unspoken words that it’s never been spoken since (something about 30) yet, it does clear a fog. What’s spoken in the bible (fades out…)

His exact words are kind of irrelevant I think; it's so low in the mix that I don't think the band actually wanted you to understand what he was saying. As long as you get the general idea that's more than enough.

that and tl;dr lolololol

The ambient parts are what I like most about this band.

Antennas To Heaven is the current standout for me, i'm going to have to give this some time though, it's overwhelming.

Absolutely. I've only listened to this all the way through two or three times, because you really have to be in the right mood to enjoy it.

Yeah, I listened to the first disc a few hours ago there was no way I could lap this all up in one sitting. Just finished the second.

I think I prefer F♯A♯∞ so far, it just seemed a little more exciting to me.

Can't believe I'm just hearing this for the first time now. Storm just ended, and I have to say that it was one of the most incredible things I've ever heard.
