So I picked up my first album of 2010 today, and that album is the newest Ihsahn. What a great way to start off the year. Ihsahn's blend of Extreme Progressive Metal is really working out for him, all of the songs are memorable. The vocals are great, as are the guitars and riffs. And yes, there is a saxophone on this record. Some people may be put off by it, but I think it adds alot of feeling and depth to the songs, and the guy playing it sounds like a talented musician (but I don't really know anything about saxophones
). But if you were a fan of any of his other albums, or any bands like Opeth, I would recommend picking this one up, you won't regret it.
1. The Barren Lands

What are everyone else who've heard it's thoughts on the album?
