    So, noone wants to discuss the new album? I think it's really great, and I'm very happy that I have yet to be disappointed by Ulver.

    I'm not very into it, but have only listened a few times. I'm currently of the persuasion that Ulver peaked with A Quick Fix of Melancholy.

    Blood Inside I never enjoyed, the only Ulver I can say that about, but I also recognize that it might be several years before I can fully wrap my head around that one anyhow. In 10 years I might find it brilliant.

    EDIT (3 weeks later): this album is grand. It took driving home on a foggy night after a loud concert to realize the majesty therein. Yay. :)

    I'd like to hear it, I recently received Blood Inside via MSN transfer and really like a few songs off it, namely For The Love of God and It Is Not Sound. How's Shadows of The Sun compared to Blood Inside?

    I think it's one of their best... i've been going to sleep to it at least a few times a week. It's pretty much got a permanent spot of my ipod.

    ok this one sucked me in :) i especially like the part in all the love from the 2nd minute to the trumpet solo.

    does anyone know of any other album that sounds like this?

    I think it's a beautiful album, very intoxicating in a subtle sense.
    As Rivfadir has said, I have yet to be disappointed.
    My favourite songs on the album are:
    The Black Sabbath cover - Solitude.
    Let The Children Go
    Funebre.

    I didn't like it when it came out, but it has grown on me, and now I think it is in the top 3 (blood inside, perdition city, shadows of the sun)

    Three years later, Shadows of the Sun is still one of my all-time favorite albums of ANY genre. Sheer genius.
