Accessible and structured compared to Vecktiamest, but not necessarily for the better. Still a great album, but lacks some of the sheer beauty.

I enjoy this album slighter more than Veckatimest. But both albums are rather good.

This albums moves me everything I hear from the first tones "Sleeping Ute". This is an album of pure beauty. Will have to check out other albums as well if some claim the Veckatimest is better.

Instant crush on this album as far I'm concerned. Of course all songs do not reach the beauty of "Yet Again", but still one of the best records of 2012.

This is their best work, I return to it every now and then and I didn't like their last album besides Two Weeks really it was mediocre and hard to sit through, but they really cleaned up their act.
