I always fall asleep for a minimum of 10min at some point. It's not boring or anything I just can't sit on a bed/chair for 2 hours and not nod off

Hehe. It's pretty hard and almost mind-boggling to listen to this thing on one go, one does feel

kind of tempted to turn this off, that's where the instability of my rating for this comes from.



But if you do this on one go, man.



It.



Is.







Bliss.

The title track reaaaally drags to me, difficult to avoid the temptation to skip that one on that middle section where he just hammers out the same two fucking chords for like 10 minutes flat



The rest is amazing though. Love the epics on the second disc particularly like Avatar, The Apostate, A Piece of the Sky

The title track is the best cut imo. There is a spot where it drags in the middle but even that's good if you're down to take a beating.

just being honest dude, it is supremely off-putting for me, makes me feel like im going bat shit bonkers in the worst way possible and then i feel like not listening to the album any more

wacko, just skip it then? Vinyl has a different track order so I'm guessing Gira doesn't consider there to be the one 'true' way of listening to this album

The repetitive part of the title track is classic swans. Love how hypnotic that shit is.
