Staff review by
I've wrestled with this review for quite some time now, sort of dreading typing it up. The biggest reason for this is Narrow House is another of those more "extreme" doom bands that has migrated into far less harsh territory. In and of itself, that isn't a bad thing.

Really enjoyed the album. Enjoyed their last, knew significant change was coming, but not as drastic as I thought. Will rate and pound out proper words after a few more listens.

Completely different to A Key To Panngrieb but equally as fantastic. Will be picking up that Limited CD for sure.

Yeah, because this is totally not funeral doom in any way.

Not sure what to call this as I'm only checking it out now, but so far I'd call it melodic doom. I'm liking it a lot so far, in any case. Sounds pretty unique for a doom band.

What an immense disappointment this was. An enormous step down from their previous one.

This was a really good listen. I wasn't expecting that last track to be a Virgin Black cover, I thought it was a funny coincidence at first
