This review could be the shortest ever: excellent. But OK, let's see why this second release of the Norwegian band is so excellent.
First as you may have noticed, the album is a whole unique song of 60 minutes: the dream of many musicians is made a reality by guitarist Tchort (Carpathian Forest, ex. Emperor, ex. Satyricon), who composed all the music and lyrics for this doom masterpiece.

It is quite some time ago since the last time I was so fascinated by a single song. In this case, it's a single song and a whole album at the same time. Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness is an epic 60-minutes long progressive doom metal masterpiece.

I have never before experienced a song that awakened so many emotions in me at the same time. Hope and despair, pleasure and pain, life and death, knowledge and incomprehesion become one on this CD. Letting the listener experience all at once. With sometimes melancholic, sometimes hopeful singing the listener is led from stanzas like "For it was my dream, To create a perfect world, From this cold imperfect world, And all the answers were inside my mind" to others like "What is left to say? What is left to see? Where did I fail?" Lyrically the whole song is nothing less then a rhetoric masterpiece.

Exactly my thoughts. Other than that, I think the first half of the song is brilliant, while the second half is just good.

Also, the baby sounds in the beginning of the song are slightly annoying, but it's no big deal obviously (just stating the few things I don't like about the song).

I LOVE the baby sounds in the beginning :3

Rating: 8 This one's a bit of a grower for me, but it's still excellent. Personally when it comes to album-long songs I still prefer Edge of Sanity's Crimson I and II, but this is still an awesome song with a lot of twists and turns.

I know it's an old comment but I agree. The female vocals sound okay at first, but get pretty obnoxious when she starts "orgasming" or whatever. Though I wouldn't blame her considering how good the rest of the album/song is.

Rating: 7 I totally understand why people love it... But I'm not feeling it as much. Will try to replay it though but it will probably stay this way.

  For a one hour song song you'd except much more diversity but it's still a great record regardless.

After thinking about it for two weeks I can safely say it was my favorite show at the festival too My expectations for this band were sky-high and they did not disappoint me.

Rating: 9 The part with the female vocals is terrible and the last 30 minutes are nowhere near as good as the first 30 minutes, but still an awesome song.
