I love the dark atmosphere and the 'weight' of this record. No wonder why so many people were very enthusiastic about it. Many bands have failed in keeping their strength; StS is not among them! I'm searching for the words to describe this album, but it's hard to find them. There's a mix of dark states of mind, of something strong and something that falls apart, crumbling down... of anger that turns too soon into total weakness... The emotions come clear through it. Perhaps "rebellious agony" could be a good description.
