This album is neither anything special, nor anything terrible. Instead, this is overall a pretty middle of the road album. However, there are a couple of better songs, like Violet Drawing, that bring the album above mediocrity.
Always a fun listen from these guys. Enslaved is one of the few black metal bands I can truely get into. Their progressive touches do so much for the black metal style, making their sound a little more accessible to the listener. Isa shows some excellent composition skills and a sense of experimentation that Enslaved seems to generally incorporate into their sound.
