There might not be as much "space" here as there was on White Tomb, but even so, there's
still not that much here. Songs awkwardly transition into clean sections, transition
through riffs too quickly, and simply don't run long enough to properly build the type of
"epic" atmosphere the band was clearly going for. Songs act as if attempting to emulate
Wolves in the Throne Room, then completely shift gears without ever attaining what they
seemed to be setting out for in the first place. These songs aren't bad, but the whole
record just leaves you feeling teased by its conclusion.
