이곳의 장점은 이런거다... 여기 저기 들여다 보다가 이런 멋진 밴드를 만나게 되는 것...
level   (100/100)
포큐파인트리의 최고의 앨범을 뽑아라고 하면 당연히 이앨범을 뽑을 것이다.
level 6   (100/100)
What if God is in absentia? Don't worry, we have Steven Wilson.
level 5   (95/100)
Great album!!!
level 4   (95/100)
모든곡이 개성이 뚜렷하면서 좋다. 임펙트가 없는 것 같으면서도.. 맘에 쏙드는게 묘한 느낌.
level 17   (95/100)
oproti predošlým pritvrdenie, no zachovávajúc si naďalej pestrosť a nápaditosť. Štýlovo kombinujú progressive rock/metal - podarené
level 6   (90/100)
이들을 처음 접했던 앨범. 연주곡 'Wedding Nails'는 자주 머릿속을 맴돌만큼 인상적이다.
