This is an unusual album, fusing together different styles and sounds in an enchanting, powerful way. The album isn't perfect, certainly some tracks are stronger than others, but given the length of the album, 16 tracks running for an hour and seventeen minutes, I think you more than get your money's worth.
The strongest tracks are at the beginning of the album. Into the Black seemed straightforward enough the first time I listened to it, but over time, I've grown to love it. The track's simplicity belies its quality.
Kill for Love, Back from the Grave, The Page, and Lady are all superb. The next few tracks are mostly instrumental, and while good, don't match up to the first third of the album. Then the final third, starting with Birds of Paradise, raise the level again, while not quite reaching the same heights as the first third.
Overall, this album is a work of art that I'll appreciate for a long time to come.
