level 7   (80/100)
그럭저럭...새로운 시도를 해보려고 한걸까? 여전히 나쁘지 않은 음악성이지만, 이들의 전작들에 비해서는 한없이 부족하기만 했던 앨범이다.
level 7   (80/100)
가볍게 듣기에 좋다
level   (80/100)
진짜 뭔가 부족하다. 딱 뭔가가 채워졌으면 주저 않고 90점 이상 날렸을것 같은데 말이다.
level   (75/100)
agalloch 은 항상 기대를 충족시킨다. 그리고 동시에 딱 그 기대만큼만 충족시킨다.
level   (80/100)
어두운 분위기가 마음에 든다.
level 14   (85/100)
여전히 멜랑꼴리하고 끈적한 느낌이다. 초기작의 로우한 느낌이 되살아나지는 않지만 보컬 특유의 속삭이는 듯한 그로울링은 일품이다. 빠져들 수 밖에 없다.
level 12   (80/100)
음...초기가 훨씬 나은 건 부정할 수 없군요. 그래도 이정도면야..
level 18   (85/100)
folk/dark/pagan metal: časté využitie akustických gitár, striedanie jemných pasáží. Podarené
