I can't believe no one has reviewed this yet. This album is incredible. It is a great sophomore effort from this young band out of South Dakota. They changed their sound drastically, from a youthful hardcore/screamo band to a more progressive sort of "rock opera" if you will. Everything about this band is remarkable, from the traditional instruments (guitar, percussion, bass), to the non-traditional (violin and flute), but i am in love with the dual-vocal attack, one male, one female. The two of them together is a beautiful thing. This band is well-structured and can very well go places with the fresh sound that they deliver.
They have songs for everyone, Procession of the Dancing Dusk (Part One) is an epic intro leading into the powerful Star-Lit Soliloquy. They even have more intense songs on this album, infact Penumbra is one of the best songs I have heard in a fairly long time. I would recommend this to anyone looking for some fresh music in today's sea of mindless repeatitive garbage.
