Was torn between this and Lese Majesty, but it boiled down to "which album has a better shot of getting bumped up to a 5 on RYM over time?" and "which album will i associate with 2014 when i think back to this year"? As of right now, i'd say i slightly prefer Shabazz, but when i answer both of those questions, this album wins out.

edgy unpopular opinion incoming: This is a better album than Deathconsciousness.

No matter how many times i listen to that record, as good as it is, i can't bring myself to say that it justifies its length.

TUW, on the other hand, is damn near flawlessly sequenced and doesn't push its running time any longer than it needs.

I'm not calling you a drone, but shouldn't you wait a little longer before you call it your album of the year? Let it set in at the very least, that way you're judging it without that initial surge of serotonin and dopamine clouding your ability to judge it properly?

It's the epitome of "blissful". The album invokes its title in its sound in the best of ways, and it's exactly the type of album I needed this year. If there's any album who's sound perfectly matches up with my mind set on life, at least at the moment, it's Lost in the Dream.

Good to know we agree on HANL though.

You might like Drudkh. Check out Autumn Aura, Blood In Our Wells, or Songs of Grief and Solitude (acoustic/instrumental). The first two albums still have growls but they're a little more spread out.
