    I can report that the black test pressing sounds great - no issues.

      It's here.

      Yes, A Winged Victory For The Sullen is one of those few bands that come out with a new album, and you don't really have to say anything. But still, a few words.

      It's beautiful. The word 'beautiful' should be saved up for things like this. The fourth album by the duo follows the same path as the predecessors, both in duet and solo – but also provides a somehow new sound design and new approach to contemporary classical music. It's very ambient in nature, Adam's Stars of the Lid years are more present here, than ever before. Just like the marvellous cover artwork, it's quite abstract and dream-like. The album can't really be divided into single tracks, it's more like a body of organism, it floats, it mutates, it blurs most of the sharp edges, but at times it comes to the surface and shows moments of clarity.

      The Undivided Five is neither pathetic, nor cathartic. And yet, you feel a huge emotional cleansing at the end. It moves you like very few things can. What an album.
