23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.
23:10 - Netzach Agalloch are so damn uneven though. The Mantle is fantastic and I also really like Marrow... but as for the rest, meh.
