This is their fifth and final full-length album, last released by Ipecac Recordings in 2009 and produced by Joe Barresi and recently remastered for vinyl by Mika Jussila. The band split just over a year after its release. This album continues the band’s history of lengthy songwriting, yet presents a slight departure from the soft-loud dynamics and post-metal aesthetic that characterized previous releases.
Reviewers noted a continued increase in melody, and many were quick to note an increased prominence of keyboardist Bryant Clifford Meyer’s work, using a Hammond B3 organ. In keeping with the band’s retinue of concept albums, a thematic strand runs throughout, dealing with dreams and Jungian psychology. Robotic Empire is thrilled once again to supply the gatefold, double-LP vinyl edition of this classic album.
