There are very few metal moments on this album. It's very mellow and progressive with the keyboard being the primary instrument. The songs are intricately constructed with a lot of ambient and atmospheric elements. There are a few metal guitar riffs scattered throughout the record, but they are pretty scarce.
Moore's vocals are very laid back and relaxed, which fit in perfectly with the atmospheric style music. This isn't one of those metal albums that hypes you up and makes you want to break stuff. It's one where you have to sit back, throw on the headphones, and appreciate the complexity and musicianship.
