Their single best album. The album has a good amount of diversity and Day of the Baphomets. FREAKING DAY OF THE BAPHOMETS IS ONE OF THE BEST SONGS I HAVE HEARD IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.

Great set of songs. Some of them kinda drag on a bit (tetragrammaton has enough variety to last 16 minutes, though) and i'm not a fan of the spacier parts

Lengthy guitar solos, pompous brass sections, psychedelic flamenco ballads and completely unpredictable song structures is what you will find on this one.

This album is definitely more latin-influenced than any other thing this band has put out. While it does contain some of their best tracks, the album is a mixed bag with some average songs and just lasts way too long as a whole. And this is coming from someone who loved the 1 hour and 30 minute 'Frances the Mute.' I do love it when Cedric sings in Spanish. Wish we could have heard more of that throughout their career.

Favourite tracks: Tetragrammaton, Asilos Magdalena, Day of the Baphomets
