0.0 Gyromania | March 7th 12

No one can ever accuse Sigh of lacking innovation, that much is sure, but what of this album? Well, it is absolutely fucking nuts. Refusing to ever sit still, and utilizing congas, accordion, flutes, theremin, etc., Sigh create a sound unlike anything you're going to hear all year. From the tastefully bluesy number (yep, lounge-metal) "Amnesia", to the demented circus that is "Far Beneath The In-Between"(seriously, Nightwish should take notes), In Somniphobia is an incredibly challenging album, marrying all of Sigh's best traits and adding new tricks to the mix. Progressive, avant-garde, experimental, psychedelic - In Somniphobia is a metal album pushing the envelope, challenging the conventions of metal while borrowing from the past (Imaginary Sonicscape).

This is really annoying. It's a jumbled mess of different sounds and influences that don't really go together well.
It's overblown and bloated to the extreme, with few moments actually feeling "creative."

Oh and I'm totally accusing them of lacking innovation.

Sigh are definitely not for everyone. Music like this sort of takes time to sink in for a lot of people who want to like it. Personally, this is the perfect type of music for me. It's insane, it's innovative, it's dark and at moments it's even catchy.

On In Somniphobia, Sigh really take to the George Lucas method of SHOVING SHIT IN WHERE IT DOESN'T BELONG.

3.5 greatHawks | March 11th 12

I went into this album not really expecting to like it, but I was very, very surprised. Sigh's weird and avant-garde sound is really on point this time around and I'd say this is easily the best stuff I've heard from them.

3.0 goodBigSimo | February 12th 12

Well, it's difficult to digest. Overall it's chaotic and feels like they took like 2000 ideas and mashed them all into one album. This works for some songs, not for others. Overall though it's trademark Sigh craziness (read: fun), and there are some truly amazing moments. Equale is probably the highlight for me. That or Amnesia.

This isn't just a black metal record with avant-garde elements thrown in for good (or bad) measure; In Somniphobia is an album that opposes logic and a casual listener's thoughts, instead rooting for craziness that could do mostly no wrong in blending in with Mirai Kawashima and Dr. Mikannibal's esoteric innovation. The ninth full-length CD encompasses a range of moods, that's for sure...

3.5 greatInFiction | July 3rd 12

After Scenes From Hell, I thought Sigh had lost the plot, descending into a endless void of wankery and cheap gimmicks. So, listening to this with zero expectations whatsoever, I was really quite surprised. Their flaws are still here, as prominent as ever, but they're on their upward climb back to the top. 'Amnesia' is hands down, one of my top tracks for this year.

If you cant handle the weirdness thats too bad for you buts its still really good music and very entertaining. Not as good as Imaginary Sonicscape though I wasn't expecting it to be.

4.0 excellentSytrius | April 16th 12

Sounds like a mix of Scenes from Hell and Imaginairy Soniscape. Very strange but exciting.

'Amnesia' has no right to be as good as it is.
