Not sure what to make of this after one spin. You've got approximately 40% black metal, 40% Agalloch, and 20% interesting-yet-unoriginal musical explorations. It's definitely solid, but I don't know if I'd come back to this more than twice.

Indeed it just sounds like a black metal-ish Agalloch. Quite solid but nothing really memorable for me.

Sounds good to me, better than 99% of the atmo Ive heard this year. I like that theyve dropped most of the post-rock.

Well I am surprised, in a very good way. The comparison to Agalloch is impossible to avoid, and even though they won't be at Agalloch's level, they are decently close. They make it more black-ish and it has a lot of elements that deserve at least a second heard.
After 3 runs this is somewhere between Very Good and Excellent. (I wish metalstorm could let us give .5 ratings)

Definitely. It feels like there is way too much space between an 8 and a 9. 8.5 is the perfect rating for something that is better than just good, but not quite classic-level great.
And let's face it, it's not like the metalstorm computers are going to catch fire if they have to average a bunch of half points into their ratings.

Or will they?

Hmmm, 8 is exactly what you want, it means "very good".... .5's are useless.

"Useless" is a bit harsh, isn't it? .5s are useless? Maybe the 1-10 scale is useless. After all, some sites just do a 1*-4* scale. For that matter, why not just say thumbs up, thumbs down? Like or dislike? Maybe anything more than that is useless.

Or maybe some of us would prefer a little more precision in our ratings.

Didn't mean to sound harsh, but I really think having 1 to 10 is more than enough. I do think .5s are redundant, you should be able to decide between a 8 and a 9, you have 10 different numbers to categorize the quality of albums in. That is more than enough, and 20 would be over kill imo. I think if you want .5s, you should review how you score the albums, maybe you need to rate some of the albums lower than you already do.

For example, an 8 is exactly what you wanted from what you've said in your first post. 7 is good and 8 is better than just good (very good).

Not really, less melancholic sound as Agalloch had
