A grandiose and eerily beautiful album. It's beautiful. At times, lulling you to sleep, and at times keeping you on the edge of your seat, absolutely thrilled. The instrumentation on this album is arranged and composed so well, it's distinctively Godspeed - nobody else could make something like this.
