    Damn, I wasn't expecting. Definitely album of the year.

    Just like the way I am moved every time I meet an older person who had seen Pink Floyd during their prime, I will be the geezer who will say to his kids and other youngsters, that he saw CoL during the early 10's.

    After revising their discography a few times following the new album, I'm prepared to say that the Big Three of post-metal are Neurosis, Isis, and Cult of Luna. There are other bands in the genre who have done great stuff, but these three have produced ridiculous amounts of genre-defining material. Mariner is every bit as good as Salvation and Somewhere Along the Highway.

    "Somewhere Along the Highway" live is overwhelming.

    I didn't think it would work but Julie Christmas' vocals are splendid. Great album.

    Oh yes. Mariner sounds so fresh and yet it's still distinctly CoLish - Julie is an absolute hero there. So glad they came back.

    Mariner took off my underpants through my head. All thumbs up!

    I've had my doubts and reservations about Mariner, but after listening to it: Holy shit. It's amazing. I love how, this time around, melody and agression are added in a cinematic way, with individual songs building up towards the astounding finale and working only in the context of each other. Definetly an album that needs to be listened as a whole. And dear gods, Cygnus is just mind blowing.
