Their best album after their debut.

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

This album is really a work of genius. The only reason it doesn't get 100 is because there is little to no accessibility it takes a few listens to "get" this album but once you do there is no going back.
