This is easily Ulver's most unusual album: one that undoubtedly departs from their traditional style(s) more than any other. But it's also one of their most surprisingly enjoyable records, and certainly the most unfairly overlooked part of their Trilogie.
ok i have officially concluded that "Ultreise" is by far the best song on this album and one of the most emotional and moving peices of music I have ever hear; which is ironic given its relative simplicity. Yet when you listen closely it's very complex. Yes I know the contradiction but when you hear it you'll understand.
