5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and unforgettable. 25 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
I'll keep this as brief as I can, but this is by far the best record released in 2006 up to now, and I can't see anything beating it. It is sparse, melodic, atmospheric, eerie, astonishingly heavy and completely heartbreaking all at the same time. It's a near-perfect amalgamation of the sound Cult Of Luna have honed in their other records and is downright essential regardless of whether or not you're a fan of heavy music.

I can't praise it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nearly soiled myself!! 14 May 2006
Format:Audio CD
... why you ask?

I thought Salvation was an absolute masterpiece from start to finish. It opened my eyes (and ears) to the worlds of ISIS, PELICAN, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY, G S Y B E, etc.

But I think one of the most outstanding things about the Salvation album was it's wonderful flowing emotion, one minute you'll be hugged by the distant guitars and the next you'll be banging your feet on the ground to some of the heaviest most enchanting metal ever writen.

They have matured that little bit more with this album, introducing some interesting new electronic sound (but not too many!) and the genius use of a banjo (but not too much!).

It's still very early in the year but I may have found the top contender for album of the year (in my world).

They recorded it in a barn and it sounds bloody fantastic too - btw!

If you don't know them I would probably recommend "Salvation" first because I think to hear the growth from that album to this one is a monsterous pleasure in itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars very special indeed. 27 Sep 2007
Format:Audio CD
To put it simply, to not buy this album is a serious mistake. It is an incredible journey with a vast range of emotions and thought provoking moments. It is a piece of art. I live in north Wales and as i walked along a vast, empty beach listening to the song dark city, dead man; i looked up at the moon and felt that i was going to explode. This album like many great albums by Tool, Isis, Mono, Deftones, gave me one simple message- YOU are alive! There are not many bands that can do that, to make you feel like your heart will erupt from volcanic emotion. People, this album is 5 second hand and i would gladly pay 100 for it. So what are you waiting for? Go and inhanse your life and stay away from James blunt and Oasis before we all perish!

5.0 out of 5 stars Post-metal; the thinking mans metal 4 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
If I were a vulgar young man I would reel off a list of superlatives to describe the intensity and diversity of this magnificent Swedish made long player. However I will choose a more tender approach. I first got into Cult of Luna in 2003 with their 'The Beyond' release. I had recently got involved with bands such as Neurosis and Isis and they fitted in nicely alongside them. However last year, when I went to Roskilde I was somewhat blase about seeing them. I just thought they would be a pleasant alternative to Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was wrong. They were so much more. The minute they came on, basked in red light, four individuals, their guitars siloheted in the smoke, I knew it was going to be special. The main reason for this was the fact that they played the majority of the songs from this album. This album is different to their others (all of which I now own as indebtitude to this release) inasmuch that it is softer, more textured. It builds slowly, more slower than other albums and therefore more rewarding. You find yourself waiting longer for the inevitable crescendos therefore when they do eventually come you feel like youve earned it and appreciate it more. Dont get me wrong, this album is aggressive but more sparsely so. I blew off a lot of steam at that performance in Denmark, at one point during an endorphine hazed climax I just yelled for two minutes. At the end of the gig I just stood and stared, dumbstruck. On my return I immediately bought this album and I still lie down in bed in complete darkness listening to 'Dim' just build and build and build, layer after layer, until it finally explodes and wonder if I will ever hear a better song. Needless to say, if you like aggressive but melodic metal, or even post-rock, then you need to listen to this essential album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful. 31 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
And the award for most evolved Cult Of Luna record goes to? That's right! `Somewhere Along The Highway'. The first few attempts at perfection were just short, in my humble opinion, but this effort is as close to perfection as the Swedish act have ever managed to achieve, both past and present. Perhaps it's the closest record to perfection they are ever likely to achieve as a band, hence the decreased opinion of the latest effort, `Eternal Kingdom' which wasn't bad, by any means, it just wasn't `Somewhere Along The Highway'. There are several reasons as to why the average rating for this record stands at a staggering 98% from 4 reviews and to be honest, it`s justified. One may wonder whether the hype of this record will eventually lead to the downfall of it's overall opinion in the eyes of the public, but since it's arrival on to our scenes, the work behind this particular effort still doesn't go unnoticed and the hype hasn't managed to bring on it's fall from grace which could have been seen as imminent. The contributing factors as to why this record has lasted as a top contender to best record of not only 2006 but also from a band of this multi-cultural nature, in terms of genre hybrids, will be discussed in this review.

`Salvation', in particular, managed to draw upon a sound which bridged the gap between the more aggressive Cult Of Luna sound, which was dominated by one of the layered guitars and the snapping snare attacks which generate a lot of angst, and the more charismatic sound in the form of the subtle works of the bass and second guitar, which produced mainly clean riffs of a stunning nature.
