It's an unique album in Sigh's excellent discography. Located right at the middle of their career, it still has the mystic grace of their past endeavours without the slight bastardization of their black metal sound with overt symphonic elements and added gritty and busty female vocals. The band always had an original vision ever since their seminal debut and they still lead the charge today with an undying liking of their weird world.
Sigh's fifth album and most ambitious work to date, Imaginary Sonicscape solidifies the band as a master of surrealist black metal, even if there isn't exactly a whole lot of competition. What makes it all even more disorienting is how everything remains tied to a more-or-less straightforward, hard-rocking metal foundation, the kind that would do Thin Lizzy or Iron Maiden proud (especially with all the dual-harmonized guitar lines they toss in this time around).
Within Imaginary Sonicscape, the band has crafted 10 songs of a mostly indefinable genre; at this point, the band truly transcends any genre classification. Trying to compare this album to any other metal album is equivalent to attempting to compare a platypus to any other mammal; it’s definitely similar, but when you try to discern any real common ground it to its kin, you are more often than not left floundered
Imaginary Sonicscape' - Sigh (9/10). From Japan comes Sigh, a band that is a current frontrunner in black metal of the 'weird' variety. Sigh takes what have otherwise been largely (although not fully) a straightforward melodic black metal album and adds strange electronic effects overtop some parts, to give a quirkier feel.
