I'm glad Amorphis re-invented themselves again after this, but that being said, I still think FFtS is a really good album. I see it as the pinnacle of the "middle years" of Amorphis' career, with more variety and catchy songwriting than Am Universum or Tuonela. Not a great starting point if you're getting into this band, but worth owning for fans. "Planetary Misfortune" is an insanely fun psych-folk groove, "Mourning Soil" rocks, and "Smithereens" is brooding, atmospheric closer.
