Staff review by

After their 60 minute-long opus, Green Carnation returns with a more classic album.
The question: "can this third release be better than their previous masterpiece?" can't really be asked as far it's not the same type of album, but let's see in details what it is made of:

The first track, "Crushed To Dust", is just raw and simple, no introduction: we're invited to start the listening with a good heavy track, and that's quite surprising for Green Carnation.

Rating: 8 This is not my favourite Green Carnation record, but I still like it. It's hard to choose the highlights, because all the songs are good.

Rating: 7 Whoa this album's great. I mean, it's not like that other album of theirs... but it's still great. Terrible album cover though
