Review Summary: Brilliant and masterfully composed

Mick Kenney has impressed with many brilliant works over the past 15 years or so. All of which have held his unique touch them. This is easily his greatest example of that. With dark passion felt in every single track, you would swear that you just heard Satan's only opus.

Combining symphonic gothic sound with the electronic tone of darkwave is truly what this album does best. Showing simple yet complex musical scoring in its very dark sound. Being a concept album of the Divine Comedy, these elements are essential. Altering the mood to fit each concept of each track individually. There are some sorrowful sounding moments as well as some more powerfully aggressive feeling ones. In tracks like "The Glutonous" and "The Lustful" you feel a certain woeful mood setting. Whereas in tracks like "The Violent" there is a more recognizably angered mood setting. The words, "Reap what they sow," are used very lightly yet punishingly harsh in "The Violent".

The lyrics in this work have a fantastically poetic flow to them. Almost as if they were taken straight from the Divine Comedy itself. Every line is simple and straight forward, yet still complex in there own ways, and when following along with them, sets a brilliant harmony in an almost storytelling style of writing. Creating the perfect blend of simple concept and in depth step by step process of each level of hell.

Anyone and everyone that has the opportunity to listen to and/or purchase this work of art should definitely do so. Recommended to anyone who loves an immersive listening experience that they can cherish for more than the 45 minute run time.

Standout tracks: "The Lustful", "The Glutonous", "The Violent", and "Limbo"
