    More of a continuation of ...Are The Dark Horse than a stand alone LP, but still strong enough to warrant a high rating due to its ambitious to blend more electronic sounds into their epic compositions, and swapping gleaming bright in their storytelling for ominousness. It weaves in a slightly different light, but is within the same realm.

  1. With Are the Roaring Night they delve deeper into the glittering soundscapes that have become synonymous with their sound; sacrificing something of the warmth that marked their previous work, they nonetheless emerge with a thoroughly impressive, coherent whole.
  2. Right now no one is making music this grand, this big, this moving with so much assurance.
  3. A ten track album sequenced as two sides, with short introductory ambient noise pieces in slots one and six, the tracks drone on long and stand tall together, creating a monolithic listening experience which feels both constantly building and already there.
