This album is a masterpiece. I do not take saying these superlatives lightly. Especially for a triple-album, this is an extremely rare gem.
I have listened to the entire album in one sitting and highly recommend it. All of the tracks work together better than they do apart from one another. A perfect example of the "album" format.
The progression, the ideology, the dense atmosphere and dedication on display: this is certainly them at an incredible new height of expression.
