When I first got "ItL", I actually did not like it. There is a long intro which turned me off right away, and at first I didn't grasp it. It wasn't until several years later, when I gave it another chance, that I actually connected with this music. It is very unique, with some exotic instruments. Yes, it is slow paced (I was at the time a rabid Death-Metal fan), but, as I later found, there is nothing wrong with that. When you put this on, you better be ready, willing and able to quietly let the music take you away on a blissful journey. They have a male and female singer, but they sing on different songs, never together on the same one. I find that odd, but truth is, each song fits marvelously with the vocalist chosen, and I could not imagine it otherwise. For those with the desire for something different, something that will take time to sink in, something that doesn't pummel you with sound from the get-go and takes time to unravel, look no further. I enjoy unrelenting, fast, violent music, but I also love mellow, meditative music like this. Enchanting.
