It is the door that opens into a swirling, shape-shifting universe, where sophisticated melodics underscore melancholic themes of isolation, loss, grief, death, loneliness, and existential angst -- the sadness is pervasive.

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.53) - "[M]ost of the tracks on here are rich, dark, night-time whispers bolstered by sporadic injections of crunching guitar." Q (Magazine) (p.110) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] flirts with prog as they brood over rich textures."
