Great album!!!
level   (95/100)
모든곡이 개성이 뚜렷하면서 좋다. 임펙트가 없는 것 같으면서도.. 맘에 쏙드는게 묘한 느낌.
level   (95/100)
oproti predošlým pritvrdenie, no zachovávajúc si naďalej pestrosť a nápaditosť. Štýlovo kombinujú progressive rock/metal - podarené
level   (90/100)
이들을 처음 접했던 앨범. 연주곡 'Wedding Nails'는 자주 머릿속을 맴돌만큼 인상적이다.
