    One of their best. Flows perfectly and oozes of atmosphere. Great swan song.

    Wonderful album, I've just bought it on vinyl, after so many mp3 listening. Now I can't really decide which is my favourite in 2011, this, or the new Thy Catafalque? This has more atmosphere and really a transcendental journey, but Rengeteg has stronger compositions and tunes imho.

    first listen gave off the impression of being kindve bloated, not enough of the core WitTR sound....but i'm guessing it's a grower.
