The intro to leaving the plains is so fucking good. The best moment in the album for me is the

transition from the silence on waking then you are hit with the melody of the first 40 seconds or so.

yeah that's such a good moment. I like that part in The Spirit Horse where the quiet first section of the song fades out and then everything kicks in with all those people singing and where pretty much every instrument used on the album gets to play at some point.

It's a pretty solid album. Definitely one of my favorites, even if it's not perfect.

really interesting arrangements + distinct atmosphere (only other album that strikes me as similar is dhow)

also if you skip around through the tracks they all seem exactly the same, but i do not find it difficult to listen to this all the way through despite the like 3 recurring things

I'm late to the party with this album but I had some time to give it a couple of objective listens. It definitely drags on way too long, especially in the second half. But the moments that shine are so enjoyable that I can look past the filler. It's nice to see the band putting all of their ideas out there, but it needs refinement.

Why would you ever want to listen to anything "objectively"?

^ by objectively I mean I could actually listen with good headphones and fully pay attention to the music.

That's not exactly what objectively means, though it's always good to listen to music as closely as possible

First song is one of the best post-rock songs ever.

It's amazing how this album sounds homogeneous and yet, it sounds incredibly huge and beautiful. Really feels like a journey.
