  Easily their best album. Totes better than the second one. Just saying.

Rating: 9 Of the first three Bethlehem classics, this one is weaker than S.U.I.Z.I.D. and especially the album that followed this one.

Rating: 9 Wow, amazing. Their best in my opinion. Thats why Shining like this album, especially 'Vargtimmen'.

Even though I immensely like Shining's first five albums those five don't even come close in quality to Bethlehem's first three.

Rating: 9 I wish I can find more bands that sound like old Bethlehem.

Rating: 9 I love days like these where I come across a gem like this album. And then I think 'how did I not hear this sooner?!'
