Staff review by
How thin is the line that divides simple music and art?
How can you define a work of art?
I will not solve these questions, questions posed through the centuries by many artists and philosophers. What I will try to explain you here is why I think that this album can be defined a pure work of art.
But first, a few informative lines about this band and the members.

Excellent album, but not as good as their debut.. 'Ad Astra' is one of the best avant-garde tracks ever, also this is the only album ever that has this opera thing going on, it's just so fucking different than anything they've done! it's certainly must have album.

An innovative album but not great (esp. vocals), vocal works aren't great, my final rating is "8.4".

Perfect album, everything here is pure perfection. The vocals, the carnival atmosphere, I love it. Garm's performance in last track haunts me.
