Wintersun Time I is Here

Though the earliest official European release date is tomorrow, and the album won't hit North American stores until the 22nd, the long awaited Time I  is here at last. As of yesterday, the band is streaming the new record for free from their official website. The album stream can be found here, and since I don't know how long they'll keep it up, I'd advise anybody interested in hearing the album prior to deciding on a purchase to check it out soon.

As for me, I don't think I'll write a full review of this album, since I feel like I've already mentioned it enough times. Besides, after hearing it I can guarantee that it will make my end-of-year "Top 25" list, so it's going to come up again in a couple months. Therefore, in my eyes I've given it plenty of attention. On top of that, anybody with an interest in Wintersun or anything resembling them is pretty much aware of this release already, and I'd prefer to focus my reviews on albums that haven't gotten quite so much hype and notoriety built up around them.

[Edit: It appears the band has now taken the stream down from their site.]

  1. I did not get a chance to listen to the album stream. But I am pretty sure I am buying this regardless. I have been looking forward to it for years.
