One listen in a suboptimal environment, but I am more impressed with this album than I thought I would be. Better than 10,000 Days, very very reminscent of Lateralus.
Feels very brooding and self-indulgent, more than usual. It’s almost like they said “fuck you were are now ‘Lateralus the band’” and fucking owned it.
“Descending” and “7empest” stand out. I think I’ll love the shit out of “Pneuma” when I have a quiet moment to listen.
