This product is not classically orchestrated, but considering excursions into electronics taken in many compositional circles, this could very well be a reemergence of classical form from pop/rock/idunnowhat backgrounds. The whole package is programmatic, it carries themes throughout the album in various incarnations, there is development (it's electronic - the development is the real gem here), recapitulation, a semblance of fugal forms (no Bach here, folks), and a wide variety of things you might expect of a very carefully constructed experimental classical work. I dunno if this comparison will help most people, but this is Alfred Schnittke's polystylism, not filtered down through, but percolated up from a dense core of classical influences, distilled from all sides of the modern independent music scene. An enormous and emotional work, which surprises you most in its increasing listenability and beauty, and its detailed (fractal-like, who woulda thought?) structures.
