Snow has driven in from all directions. Severe cold and fierce winds have numbed the heart. The wolf has swallowed the sun and the pain and the suffering is just too much to bear.

Very good sound and seems that all the right ingredients are present here, but I think this album is lacking in highlights - some songs to remember (with the exception of the first track). Feels kinda lazy...

"Never Left" could be a highlight

It's funny. This is the exact kind of album I was afraid was coming after their some of his more recent albums (EFatB, Disc 1, Disc 2, Hour of the Nightingale). But this really feels like a step forward. It's not perfect but the more prolonged soft portions don't drag like they did on EFatB and Disc 1. Every song seems to have something going for it.
Highlights: 1,2,4,7

Good for few listens and forget. Not a single memorable one but all are good for a relaxed listening.

Good, better than SFTN imo but songs feel very 'samey'. Not a whole lot of variation between the tracks like earlier STS records had. I do really like the ambiance though and the slow pace is super chill and relaxed. Firelights, Upon the Water and Stone Wings are my favorites after a handful of listens. Not really liking the title track though.

Edit: its weird, I tend to enjoy the STS tracks that everyone else here doesn't and I dislike the ones everyone praises! I can't seem to get into the first 2 tracks on this record but the rest of the album I love!

Alright I like this album but... am I going crazy or does the first song remind anyone of Kiss from a Rose by Seal?
