I think I can definitively say that this album contains the best 19-minute track that I've ever heard. You know, compared to all those other 19-minute tracks out there.
Favorite track: Angel.
On this album Boris combines some of the heaviest riffs ever with the softest pop melodies and it sounds amazing. It's so heavy and sweet and dreamy at the same time.
Favorite track: Heavy Rain.
Back when I smoked I used to get stoned out of my gourd, sit in my comfy chair on my porch and jam this album. Still just as stunning sober but Rooks Across The Gates would leave me in a puddle. ObsidianGhoul
When I first discovered this album in 2008 it opened up a whole new soundscape to me. It was really something else. The slow pace and the repetitive melodic patterns drew me in completely. It hasn't lost any of its magic during the years. rowsu
