What a fantastic album. At first, I wasn't sure how I felt about it as it was a departure from their style on "Lights and Perfections." That album had a prominent groove-element, which has been seemingly replaced by more technicality and progy-ness on "In the Taking of Flesh." The lyrics are just as strong on this album: from both their beauty and power, to their Biblical accuracy and representation of Scriptural Truth. I highly recommend a listen-through with the lyrics in front of you; it's an amazing experience. Each of the respective songs' structure really makes more sense in light of the words.
I cannot wait for another release from these guys!
