Celestial Lineage: Ranked

List is self-explanatory.
7 Wolves In the Throne Room
Rainbow Illness


This is just a useless track. Also, the title might be the worst thing WITTR have ever done.
6 Wolves In the Throne Room
Woodland Cathedral


It might sound like Dia Artio, but it really grows on you after multiple listens.
5 Wolves In the Throne Room
Permanent Changes in Consciousness


As far as sub-2-minute ambient tracks go, this really slays. It doesn't hurt that Aaron Turner guest spots on here, I guess.
4 Wolves In the Throne Room
Prayer of Transformation


Similar in character to Agalloch's Black Lake Nidst?ng in a few ways, except shorter and much better. First impressions might be lukewarm, but I implore to let this grow on you a bit. The atmosphere is pretty awesome.
3 Wolves In the Throne Room
Thuja Majus Imperium


The top 3 tracks are really close matches: keep that in mind. I don't know what a Thuja is, nor do I have any idea why it's magical or what it rules over, but I do know that the track slays. Jessica Kenney of Two Hunters fame makes a welcome return, and this song has some pretty awesome dynamics (possibly the best on the album).
2 Wolves In the Throne Room
Subterranean Initiation


At 7 minutes, this is the most concise out of the 4 "real" songs. It doesn't disappoint: Aaron Turner has a (barely audible) guest spot, and the song might contain the most effective use of keyboards in WITTR history. They're not overpowering, but there's just enough of them to give the song a super epic vibe.
1 Wolves In the Throne Room
Astral Blood


I'm not even gonna try to describe this right now. Just know that it's fucking awesome. And that it has a god damned *harp.* http://geo-metal.blogspot.com/2011/09/wolves-in-throne-room-astral-blood.html
