I'd love to give this five stars because Theli should be in every Therion fan's collection. It has the best selection of music of any Therion album to date. The songs are mostly awesome.
But I usually prefer the live versions on Midgard, Mexico and Live Gothic, as the recording and production quality is slightly dodgy here and there are no real strings (apart from the guitars). The drums sound like they were recorded in a bathroom and some of the choral parts have a strange echo, and they get off to a bad start at the beginning of To Mega Therion.
This would sell thousands again I'm sure if Christofer re-recorded it with a full symphonic line-up, but the best time to do it would probably have been when he had the Niemanns in the band.
It is a landmark CD though, an embryonic Therion, and I often listen to it. Any rock fan should appreciate this.
