Listen to it.
FYI, the version of this song on the album is 16 minutes long... I'm not sure how good this short version will be, but I'm too busy listening to the album to find out. Hopefully you aren't disappointed.

From frenzied mania to chilling calm, this was an album worth owning. I hope to pick up a physical copy when I can.
CD ordered straightwaway on your recommendation. Thank you so much for posting. Never heard of this group, although I'm familiar with its members. From what I hear so far, I love their dynamics and textures -- and agree with crazed about that great video. Thanks for giving me something new to be excited about!
