  • Original music,nothing to compare
  • Amazing triple album, the 2nd is a masterpiece of emotions. The 3rd is surprising, funeral and tight and the 1st is very much alike what they did before, but with some very good tracks. Top favs'; Heart of a cold white land, Rooms and Shadows, Silhouettes, Empires of loneliness
  • That 3rd album [2]...Empires of Loneliness is Absolutely Brilliant
  • From Happiness to Dust.Pure Beauty...I Cried the first time i heard it.
  • 66°50′N, 28°40′E is what it's all about.
  • Beautifully shot video for Rooms and Shadows, a track that really grew on my after repeated listenings. I've heard really mixed opinions of Mikko's cleans, but personally I think he sounds really good; huge improvement over previous records. Lastly, my ranking of the parts atm: II (best track: Songs from the North) > III (best track: Empires of Loneliness) > I (best track: With You Came the Whole of the World's Tears)
  • First impression of the LP package: why is there a hipster chick with a stupid tree/leaf hat in the cover of every release (from various angles). I get that Swallow The Sun's lyrics are a lot about women and nature, but this teenage hipster hat thing. Really? I don't think it gives the right impression. Thank god after artificial listen the first cd sounds brilliant. Also the main cover art is lovely and minimalistic.
  • In every cd everybody will find something such familiar to him. It sounds very rich. I like it very much!
  • that new 3 cd thing... damn!
  • That 3rd album...
