    I enjoyed it very much. What I liked most from the first listen was how well it flowed - the transitions are perfect, not quite what you expect but at the same time they fit. They keyboard really helps in making that work - not to downplay the other members at all but the keys were what really blew me away. It's cool, the shifts come more from the sounds and atmosphere than the meter which is what I am most used to hearing in prog metal. Other than that I'll have to give it some more listening to get a handle on specific things I like.

    Comparing this to Age of Silence's Acceleration (which I have been admiring for a few months), I can tell that they took a lot of cues from this album. Good shit, but I'm not sure if I like it more than Sideshow Symphonies. I'll let them both age a bit.

    I agree, the keys make a lot for the album. I find new details every listen, but I guess most of Arcturus' albums work like that.

    Glad you enjoy it, the world need more Arcturus fans so they might one day reunite :p
