Being a fulltime creative is great and all, but I also work about 60 hrs/week and a lot of it is not fun. When it's the middle of the night, and I'm exhausted, and alone in my studio with a looming deadline and a painting that's already taken so much of my time that it feels like a bad marriage, this is the kind of album that keeps me going.

“Post-metal” can often be guilty of merely being loud and lingering. Cult of Luna totally dodge this pitfall. I think I most enjoyed the many textures throughout this album; percussive items beyond drums, emotive synth swells, untraditional instruments. Cult of Luna create a totally unique flavor to express their musical colors. I loved the powerful CHURN that swirled through much of this album, from the beginning horns and drums, carried forward by an excellent rhythm section. pinkytheent
