As far as the wave of prog comeback efforts go, Leaves Of Yesteryear is more bite-sized than most.

5 songs means they'll be long(er). But then these guys know how to deliver a long song.

So only 3 songs are new here, a cover and a new version of an old song. We´ll see...

I don't know...Comeback after 14 years with only 3 new songs? And stick to it cover and new version of old song to make it something more than EP? Not sure if this is enough...

It's good but they could have skipped the sabbath cover, its been done many times before (and better, by Ulver for instance)

While it is a good cover of a great song, it does not fit the mood of the album. For Ulver's "Shadows of the Sun" it did. I will listen to it separately and consider it a bonus song.

So happy to have them back. I got chills because it reminded me of spinning their albums back when I was in college. It's a little short for a 13 year wait, but it's not a bad comeback. Looking forward to where they go from here.

"Sentinels" has a Shadow Gallery vibe. Great album.

I don't give 9 because there are only 3 new songs, but it's a great album!

Best thing about it is the cover of Solitude

Good, but nothing spectacular. Loved the first half, but the latter felt somewhat weaker. Sucks that only 3 songs out of 5 are actually new ones.

You've got a lot of guts. Let's see what they look like.

Good haunting melodies, nice acoustic work in between, typical mood setter for melancholia.

I'm going to give it a few more listens but until now I find this extremely mediocre. Disappointing.

While I was losing interest in all prog metal bands, Green Carnation popped up and this is the first time I am listening to them. Believe me, after a long gap i fell in love with those 10+ minute lengthy mood swinging Gothic touched music. 1 rate less for the cover song even though I liked this version also. It's raining outside now and I am feeling the chill air through my ears.

Edit:..... Gave 9/10 as I couldn't resist.

In the beginning I was made of clay. Then I bit the apple and they changed me to metal 🤘
