Back then I was still a pretty rock and metal fan, although not as much as I ... read more
[UPDATE]: My issues with the repetitive motifs are not really a thing anymore, with more listens I've began to appreciate how these motifs build into the concept and the other tracks, and it honestly impresses with me now with how well crafted and dense it comes off as. I guess I'm still not big on Brain Damage and Eclipse being the same song and On The Run gets no replay value from me.
