Listened to it a couple of times and I'm still unsure. Sounds like they did their best to strech the band's core sound and were pretty confident about where it was going. But at the same time, it's not an album that brings Sunn O))) back to a brilliant experimental game such as the Whites, Black One and Monoliths did. It's like they somewhat wanted to make Kannon right and thought about Albini to put things straight.
So it's a good Sunn O))) album , more relevant than Kannon, but a chapter that might settle down sooner than their best records. I just ordered the RSD black 2xLP and might get surprised when enjoy it in my turntable glory. Hopefully.
