I posted my generally positive impressions of this release over at Audiocircle and seems there's a number of fans who think this release stinks. I don't think it's their strongest album by any means, but if you're a fan of their mid period work, you'll probably find it a worthwhile acquisition. There's little variation of tempo and I could see how someone might think this sounds like a long dirge. Totally agree that the engineering on the vinyl is spectacular. The cd is less outstanding, but still up to a high standard.
I got this new cd last week and love it. There are a couple songs on there that are just mind blowing. Some of the songs have an epic feel to them with lots of low frequency bass rhythms, with I love. When I heard "Return of the She-King" for the first time, it brought tears to my eyes because it was so emotionally provoking. Very satisfying.
