Change is always risk and chance. The better your current status is, the higher is the risk. Considering these self-evident facts, it is not surprising that "Age of Excuse" continues the line of the stupendous "Exercises in Futility". Only those strange people who confuse staying true to one's roots with stagnation find that stupid. Mgła, on the other hand, write continuity in huge letters across the complete work from 2019. The artwork, the booklet and even the back cover shares the design of its predecessor, we get the same number of songs and even the playtime is almost identical. Thus, the comparable musical content just adds the final brick.

Nevertheless, the Polish duo does not choose a despondent approach. It goes without saying that the six tracks present new nuances within the given stylistic frame. The aggressive and outstanding “III”, for example, delivers some shrill tones that lend the song a quite hysteric touch and the average velocity of the pieces seems to be a bit higher than before. But the defining elements remain unchanged. There are, not only in the opening “I”, still relatively hypnotic parts, the vocalist still sounds like someone who does not tolerate contradiction and the guitars have not stopped to create endlessly flowing lines. Even the production lies in close proximity to “Exercises in Futiliy”. It’s a professional, dense, more or less well-balanced mix. It captures the essence of the sinister music in a good manner and adds value to the full-length.
