4.5 superbajcollins15 | May 27th 21

As of right now, I can definitively say that this is one of the most exciting releases thus far in 2021. There are very few times where a record of this size (nearly 2 hours in length) is justified. However, I can tell you after listening to this record for several days now over and over again to review the damn thing there is nothing on this record that feels overly long or complicated. On the contrary, much of the third album from the Italian artist is very simple: progressive electronic builds with ambient rich drones and experimental rock (very post-rock leaning) instrumentals (and some piano here and there). What makes this album so much of a joy to listen to is the constant on your edge feeling you get with it?never knowing where the album is going to turn next. It?s hard to write a short review for this kind of album but I?ll say this; without a doubt, this is one of the most engaging pieces of music I have heard in a while and it is almost perfect with the ending needing to be a bit stronger. Might be a campy listen, but man is it worth it when Jacopo comes in with his energetic and swan light vocals. In many ways, this is like a simplified version of a swans record, if Swans was more influenced by ambient music then it already is.

Michael Gira, is that you? This is mighty, epic, always-experiencing, and solidly frightening shit taking all sorts of bizarre music genres (post-industrial, ritual ambient, progressive electronic, or experimental lmao. Of course, such a rich and gargantuan formula makes the more patient moments slightly meandering, but the simple act of creating an always-enthralling/never-boring 110 minutes album is a mighty feat.

Entirely new and without rival. Visceral, ethereal, profound.

5.0 classicTheGreatEscaper | December 21st 21

Such a strange and beautiful world of sound to get lost in. It's a long album, and some sections can feel a bit too still or repetitive, but it's still so densely packed with beautiful sounds, hard-hitting melodies and sonic surprises that these moments fade away in the big picture. Something very tribal and powerful about this - hard to pick highlights but hiver, ashes, nuit, prison, horizon, piel, and soldiers are all incredible.

Creepytime pop-post-rock with elaborate song-writing.

The track 'prison' and the whole album for that matter, is like The Seer's demented cousin which, is straight up commendable on that alone, but don't let my words get in the way of the intricacy and virtuosity that this anvils upon you.

2.5 averagefog CONTRIBUTOR | May 21st 21

It starts off fairly promising but I don't get
a sense of migration as this progresses, which
I assume is the theme. To me it starts to feel
like it's standing in place.
