This album is definately a lot lighter and more up-beat. For that reason I do find it harder to access. The mood of His Old Branches and Varuna suited my taste perfectly, and The Republic of Wolves are definately in my top 5 favorite bands. This album, however, will take a few listens before I decide on whether or not I can get into it.
Good review too, I just hope the album turns out to be worth the praise.
