This and Loveless are probably my two favorite albums where I have no idea what they're saying.

Mostly beautiful but a bit boring in places. I prefer Takk.

Such a beautiful journey of introspection combined with flights to faraway galaxies. Emotional rollercoaster: euphoric joy to tear filled sadness.
