In terms of variety and dynamics, this album is extraordinary. Like a conclusion of what they did before but taken to a whole new level. F*cking great record!" METAL HAMMER (PL), Igor Waniurski "In 2019, these Swedes publish an album that breathes the monumental and melodic spirit of the prog seventies. Musically demanding and full of unexpected twists. But above all, it's inspired by bittersweet melodies, dizzying depth and a knack for harmonies that bring every rock-hard metal fan down to his knees. It is quite possible that Åkerfeldt already secretly curses himself, since it will be almost impossible to ever outdo this album." ORKUS (GER), Annabelle Reither
