6.5
Prog Metal
The concept of one-song albums did not start here. Of course it is not easy to pull the stunt, to actually write a song that is one hour long. Or, to be more specific, to write one that is interesting.

The first half of the song is best described as riff-salad. It is a bunch of riffs accompanied by somewhat deep lyrics. The music is pretty much Opeth with a different vocalist. About half an hour in, a very long interlude appears, a woman singing for like, ten minutes, accompanied by some noodling. Then there's a bunch of quiet droning, some more heavy riff salad, and a disappointing ending.

Possibly the most overrated composition ever. However, parts of Green Carnation would reform as In the Woods... who would write considerably more focused and moving songs. Light of Day, Day of Darkness is not bad, or completely boring to listen to (if that was the case, I would have given it a much lower rating), but I'm surprised to see it receive such a warm welcome when it has so many flaws.
