    How is that one? I haven’t heard it yet, but still thinking of picking it up based on their past stuff.

    Thanks for the links. I am interested in hearing your thoughts on the music though.

    I like the album but then I liked everything Diagonal put up. For what is worth, I like 4th more than "Arc".

    Any hope of a CD here?

    A let down. They put a tedious stoner rock influence on this one, resulting in their worst album.

    Even before the pandemic, this was becoming an established genre all of its own. "Tedious" seemingly being one of its main qualitative and defining criteria.

    Other than "neo" I can hardly find a single "prog-related sub-genre" less overtly exciting than the "stoner" emblem. And even with this third-generation "acid hard rock" club (which of course is its core stylistic feature and cultural reference), many performers are nearing their 30s and so too old to be dealing in it.

    Is their previous studio album better? Or where to start? That Odense Sessions album?
