Enslaved's FROST is not music that will appeal to everyone, or every metal fan. I love Enslaved, the most creative BM band on the planet, so I'll admit to being more than normally biased. This album has a couple of flaws. The sound quality is sometimes rough, especially when it comes to the drums. The occasional keyboards, when they take the lead, sound a little cheap. It's hard to distinguish guitar from bass, but that's stereotypical production for this kind of metal. Let's be honest; sound quality's not why we listen to albums.

However, FROST is a significant move forward for the band, compared to their less mature earlier releases. The longer tracks justify their length for a change. The album's title and cover artwork perfectly suit the music; this is a cold and aggressive record. If you have any appreciation for the black branch of extreme metal, this should be an essential listen for you. FROST is a major development for Enslaved, and one of their finest releases.
