Ancestors - In Dreams and Time,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In Dreams And Time (Audio CD)
When Ancestors released the Invisible White EP they promised that the next full-length album would be a more logical follow-up to the Of Sound Mind album.
They deliver what they promised, and more.
As well the sounds as the melodies on In Dreams and Time are both more mature, and on a whole new level. Without losing their vital roots, Ancestors has found a way to incorporate their sound even more in the modern era. The album retains some of the sounds explored on the EP in the mellower second track, but is otherwise a more heavy offering than those before. There is an anchor in a heavy and high-pitched electric guitar that flows through the album, which makes the over-all feeling of the sound darker and more despairing. Some listeners may have a hard time coming to terms with this.
I find only the track "Running In Circles" a bit difficult to swallow. It's the last one before the epic conclusion, but for me it doesn't really go anywhere. But five out of six tracks are great songs, and the total 66 minutes are a wonderful offering by the band.

I completely agree with this review, including finding "Running in Circles" a slight dip in the overall quality. I read somewhere else that the beauty lies with the construction and subsequent destruction of every song which I also agree with without previously realising. I love it.
