Friends of the suncross, further your mind, the mighty norseman have returned with another 50 minutes of pure glory. The band have grown up, and this album shows it. Technical tracks like "b*stards of a lying breed" and "as the crow flies" show the guitarists new talent, and johanns control of his huge lungs... But the bonus track is a mystery... Countermelodys on each guitar rather than the usual rhythm lead, boingy noises and disorted vocals all lead to... the best track on the album? It's strange how poor recording often carry so much more weight.
Incidently, the cymbals on this album are crystal clear, previously they were just backgrounhd noise, but I havent heard another album like it, its quite amazing. Course, this is vinyl I'm talking about.
