From manurock
This atmospheric rock album would become the midway between their previous doom metal albums and their latest prog-rock album. Throughout the album, most songs have similar haunting keyboards and piano, fascinating acoustic guitars and sometimes aggressive, sometimes calm electric guitars. These, as well as a wonderful violin in two tracks, make this album beautiful despite the great depressing lyrics. Their best songs are the Floydian yet unique "Lost Control" and the haunting title track.
