Despite this being a great album, it is at an inferior level to its twin album Bath. Or at least that's what I think: there are in fact a few reasons: I don't think too many will appreciate this because it has a lot more growling vocals than motw's previous albums ; it also keeps pretty much the same structure as Bath, like the fact that there are two interludes in both albums and that they have an acoustic guitar piece that are very similar (" Marid's Gift Of Art" and " Sleep Is A Course" ). But for the rest, it is a great album, and the first three songs are excellent, which demonstrate what a great songwriter Toby Driver is. And the closing track. " Monstrously Low Tide", besides of being a great title for a song, is one of the best ending songs ever written. Enjoy!
