'this crying age' is an archetype of the dark ambient genre, conceived long before the term was used as a marketing tool. it moves slowly in four tracks that run for almost an hour combined and emanates an icy atmosphere, decidedly scandinavian, like endless forests in winter. the ticking of the clock opens the album like a merciless memento mori before the listener plunges into bleak atmospheres and threatening drones. underneath you can hear the lament of the damned, like in a medieval fantasy of purgatory, and the melody line in 'glaciers of scandinavia' does not proclaim salvation, but the eternal cycle of suffering. 'this crying age' convinces with its structured composition and surprisingly crisp production, real mood music.

Generally Compilations are unlistenable garbage. As the description mentioned, this is coherent. Honestly this is beautiful and perfection. Highly recommend to Inade fans. Cannot even mention a favorite. Love this dearly. Eric

First-rate, bold, and brilliantly executed dark ambient from well-known masters of the form. Enticing waves of thick, luxurious drones are punctuated with a few surprising turns, as we are taken on an occult journey over yawning chasms and through twilit realms steeped in mysticism. "Centuries Passed" is particularly majestic and evocative; I've played it on repeat for hours on end, and somehow I hear something new in it every time. Immersive and inspiring! Danica Swanson
