Sorry for making you go back to the video, but check out my reaction at 17:35 and you'll have more or less an idea of what I think about this album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkNq5idMyEM
Absolutely agree. This is one of the most complete and creative releases I've ever heard, and, considering the background the band comes from, it sure is absurd how well they fare amongst so many different styles altogether.
