Emerald Forest and the Blackbird Comments

level   (85/100)
naďalej ostávajú tvrdý, avšak doom/death metalové pasáže doplnili o väčšiu variabilitu a trochu aj progress prvky
level   (70/100)
미안한데 엘범으로는 진짜 못듣겠다 곡들로 들으면 괜찮은데 말이다.
level   (75/100)
전작들보다 뭔가 힘이 빠진다.
level   (75/100)
확실히 전작에 비해 빈 공간이 심하게 늘었다.
level   (75/100)
1시간동안이나 못듣겠다. 느낌이 좋다는걸로 커버치는데 한계가있다.
level   (90/100)
상당히 매력적인 앨범. 서정적이면서 쓸쓸한 분위기가 물씬 느껴진다.
level   (90/100)
살짝 비슷비슷한 분위기에 지루한 면도 있지만 워낙 팬이라서 이런 분위기 너무 좋다...
level   (74/100)
왜 이렇게 된 것일까.. 멜로디가 귀에 들어오는 게 하나도 없다시피하다. 특유의 분위기는 살아있으나 매력이 부족하다.
level   (90/100)
들으면 들을수록 멜로디에 빠져든다. 은근 중독성 있다는..
level   (65/100)
자세하게 집어낼 필요도 없이 그냥 감흥이 없다.
