Songs From the North I, II & III Comments

level   (95/100)
disc 1,2 도 훌륭하지만 압권은 역시 disc 3 의 퓨너럴 둠 파트다. 서정미와 파괴미를 동시에 갖춘 명작이라 칭할 만하다.
level   (95/100)
이들로서는 매우 참신한 시도를 한 앨범으로, 멜로딕 둠/고딕에만 안주하지 않겠다는 의지를 보여준 훌륭한 앨범이다.
level   (100/100)
멜로딕 둠이란건 이런것 . Cd3개 마다 완벽히 다른 분위기를 뿜는다.
level   (100/100)
각 씨디마다 색깔이 다른 둠을 보여주면서도 그 완성도가 매우 높다. 개인적으로 2015 최고의 앨범 중 하나.
level   (95/100)
Disc 2를 제외한 듀얼로지로 나왔어야 했다. 특히 Disc 3의 경이로운 퓨너럴둠은 2010년대 장르 내 발매작을 통틀어 최고 수준이다.
level   (95/100)
겨울을 위한 아름다운 멜로딕 둠 + 쓸쓸한 어쿠스틱 + 퓨네랄 둠 3위일체.
