I'm not the biggest fan of this album, but the arguments are kinda perplexing... combining growls with clean vocals cannot lead to confusion on its own, versatility in the vocal style cannot be a bad thing on its own, on the contrary.

For me the band managed to incorporate the different styles quite well. The album is not disjointed at all, it flows seamlessly.

Profusion and exuberance have always been this band's trademarks, I think each song on this album is excellently composed and shows a perfectly thought-out structure. The album on the whole showcases the band's proficiency to combine melody to crushing and dreadful moments... Really, they have a command on Doom aesthetics that many outthere would dream of (and that Evoken's latest is dramatically lacking).

For me it's by far their best album. Baphomet completely nailed it.

It's a very good album and I hope the band members don't come across this review... from doom-metal.com of all websites!
