Enslaved - RIITIIR

So the album came out today in Europe and leaked yesterday. What are the opinions you guys have on it? I have had it for a while now and still have not come up with a truly solid opinion on it. I'm afraid to say as the only other really big Enslaved fanboy besides diamonos that I know of on here that it's disappointing. They had been on one of the greatest five album streaks in the history of extreme metal starting with Below The Lights. This one just totally veers more into their progressive side than needed. Giving Herbrand the majority of the vocal time was not a great idea as well. It's so much better than most of the garbage out there but by Enslaved standards it's just barely above average. I will post a more detailed review in this thread when I get a chance but those are my thoughts for now. Roots of the Mountain is the best song on the album.
