Listened to it last night before going to bed. Start to finish, laying on the couch.

Suggestive piece of music. I'm pretty sure this is their most intricate album in terms of the sheer amount of sound they've got going on in the background. They've dabbled with noise and layers before, but this is something else. Second track was straight up frightening during the intro with all that dissonance and the saxophone/trumpet whatever the hell that was.

In one sense I'm disappointed that it's so different from Shadows of the Sun, but I knew that beforehand. If there's one problem with the album it's that some songs felt a tad disjointed. I know they've always had weird song-structures and I have nothing against that, but some of the songs felt a tad nonsensical in the way they developed. That was one of the things I loved about SotS. Every single song had a clear progression that made sense. Every song is contained, focused, direct and complete. Wars of the Roses seems to have much more "expansive" approach to song structure. I would assume it's intentional, Ulver being all about the unexpected and so on, but I'm not sure it's what I would have wanted.

That said, everything else about it, the layered vocals, the production/soundscape, Dave's guitar-work and so on, is amazing. I think Dave especially should get credit, he's one hell of an interesting player.

As for the quality of the rip, there was some crackling that made me suspect it was an LP-rip. Of you can wait for the CD, by all means do.

I'll give it another listen tonight.

I liked Shadows of the Sun, didn't like Blood Inside much. I'll listen to this later.
