A progressive post-metal album released on Pelagic Records? If your mind instantly goes to The Ocean, you wouldn't be too wide of the mark, but Belgium's Psychonaut are far more than a mere imitation of the aforementioned German collective.

Found it by accident. Hooked from the first listen. I'm listening to this everyday. My favourites: 1,4,5, for now.

Found this thanks to the review. A few post albums I enjoyed from the first listen as this one.
Somewhere between 8.5 and 9 imo.

Great stuff. I wasn't expecting much but this exceeded all my expectations. Already a contender for album of the year in my opinion.

Easily the best post-metal album of the first semester of 2020.

Great stuff. Enjoying this album a lot, especially after a week of solid listening. A real grower.

It's atmospheric, crushing, melodic, groovy, hypnotic, and cleverly crafted. Probably album of the year for me. And not to take away from the sheer immensity, but with a name and tracklist like that, I was expecting something with far more psych influence, but that's hardly a complaint.

This album is ridiculously good; looking at the release schedule for the rest of the year, I would be surprised if it doesn't end up being my AOTY

It's great and all but... this was not a 2020 release. I don't think it was even a 2019 release as I remember listening to this somewhere I haven't been since 2018.

Just looking it up again, and you're right, it was a 2018 release. I guess they wanted it to seem new in the publicity stuff to get hype, but it's a bit annoying that the bandcamp, spotify, etc were all portraying it as a 2020 release, not least because my 2020 AOTY isn't technically a 2020 release (although if the label can pretend that it is, so I can I for list purposes)

I guess it's a good way to handle it if your album went completely under the radar.
