I have listened to it about 5 times now and it's really starting to grow on me, much in the same way Heritage did.
I've listened to it fully through twice now, and I really like it. I was expecting something a lot weirder actually.
I wouldn't say I've fully digested it yet. But it's definitely a great album. Nothing seems forced, which was something I was a little worried about. I would say it's more of a Steve Wilson project, with Mike just adding a taste of that Opeth flavour on the side.
I can definitely understand why they were saying it'll form an unofficial trilogy with Heritage and Grace for Drowning
