This evidences a low point creatively in Akercocke's musical output. It lacks centrifuge or epicentre, like some said about Supergrass' 'Life on Other Planets' CD. However, it is worth buying for the good tracks that are on it, such as 'The Dark Inside', 'The Promise', 'Axiom' and 'Epode', in my order of preference, but that is about all you can get in the way of songs with coherent lyrics. The rest are just sonic 'experiments' that might be find on a Hammer Horror movie OST or even on panpipes collections. It is very distorted as an album whose theme is the coming of antichrist (the quotation insleeve indicates its intended listening purpose), and full of feedbacklike quality noise. Unless you are a fan, or you like the tracks I've mentioned, you'd be better going for something else by them instead.
