The Truth
Honestly, I was quite blown away by this release after the tiring Infinity album. This is shoegazing post-metal at it's best and Jesu have definitely released a truly great record.

Prepare to space out while listening to this album but the particular space-out it creates is not one that makes you forget you're even listening to music. On the contrary, it's one of those space-outs where the listener feels completely coherent yet in a different world entirely.

Nostalgia coats this album with a melancholy film that I know I for one indulge in. It's a great record to just lay back and let soak in because it can be really angsty and also really moving at the same time.

One of the best albums this year, everyone should check it out.
