mh! a 10! Is it really worthy of the ultimate rating? I didn't listen to it, but a 10, from this band, I wouldn't have expected that!

I'd have given them a 10 for the last album, just for getting Čudlik the cat to do guest vocals at the end of the opening track :p


But, seriously, I'd say it's pretty much what you'd expect from Quercus: if you're on their wavelength with that whole ever-changing, off-the-wall avant-gardism thing, then it's great; if you're not, it'll just sound all over the place. I like it, and though I wouldn't score it that high myself, I can see how someone who clicks with it enough to describe it as "Sfumato is quite possibly one of the most enlightening albums that I have ever had the good fortune to experience" would.

I also wouldn't give such high rating, but nevertheless i find the album very, very good, the third track is especially lovely!

I admit i expected a bit more originality from them, something unexpected, due to their previous album. But if you look at this from another point - that they don't simply strive for pure originality but rather that they've found a sound that is theirs, you see that the two full-lengths are actually pretty consistent in sound.

p.s. the track you posted is a personal favourite of mine=)

I've just listened to that track posted here above... I had kind of forgotten how Doom could drag. :D
