    Well, yeah sure, it was good, but I didn't like it anywhere near as much as the two before it.

    How was that disappointing? Maybe not as good as Choronzon and Words, but still good to my ears

    Cannot wait for this to be released.

    Regarding Antichrist: It was a very good album, but a step down from the previous four.

    Definitely better than 'Antichrist', and arguably in the same tier as 'Words...'. It's really only getting better with repeated listens.

    So much technicality still so much soul and character. Damn, the first track even features the Purdie shuffle.

    The music is really beautiful, but the vocals destroy this album for me...

    I do love this album, and it was worth the wait fo shizzle.

    The vocals are terrible. Such a shame, cause with good vocals this album would have been totally unbeatable.

    Too prog rock for my tastes. They probably should have considered a band name change for this album. Ok background music.

    I'm loving it. The nuances really come out while blasting the volume. Classic Akercocke, but more prog added into the cake. Less death metal, but not by much. True, some clean vocals are a bit monotone, more so than previous albums, but I think that's the unsettling effect they're going for. It taps into a different emotion I think fits the music. I felt the appreciation came out for the vocals after several spins.

    This album flows perfectly while listening to the previous albums. Definitely happy with it.
