5.0 out of 5 stars His Finest Album To Date? 6 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD
Devin Townsend is a man very much at the height of his powers, if Addicted is anything to go by. The second in a planned quadrilogy of albums he's working on at the moment, previews indicate an extremely strong set of arguably his best songs, and his voice - never better than on this album - is brilliantly contrasted by the wonderful Anneke van Giersbergen, adding extra dimensions to his trademark layered vocal "wall of sound" that work amazingly well.

The production on the album delivers a sound which is bigger (and for Townsend, this is saying something), punchier, airier and tighter all at once. There's a genuine majesty in tracks like "Numbers" and the truly jaw-dropping "Supercrush!"

It's not even out yet, and I'm putting Addicted right at the top of my list of favourite albums of all time. We might have flippantly labeled Devin Townsend a genius before, but in my opinion, Addicted really is genius. Seriously.

If we lived in a musical meritocracy, this album would sell more copies than The Joshua Tree and Brothers In Arms combined. As it is, I'm so looking forward to getting my hands on the CD and owning a little piece of rock and metal history.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best album in 10 years! 10 Nov 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hi all

Where do you start with Devin. First of all, I'm into a massive range of music and metal in general...but only twice in my life have a heard an album which I truly felt like it was written for me! By that, I mean an album which if I could create the perfect album in my head, this is how it would sound.

The first time that happend was when I heard the album 'Alien' Alien by Devin's side project band strapping young lad. The second time was when I heard the album teaser (at Devin's myspace site)...I just couldn't believe my ears, and I can't fathom how one single man can produce something that a million other people couldn't. This guy is a God and should be on every radio station.

If you haven't checked this guy out, you really must, just look at the reviews of all of his other albums, for example Ocean Machine Forget waiting to see if this album is good or not, just pre-order it NOW like I have, you won't regret it.

Phil

4.0 out of 5 stars A couple of Anneke songs short of 'classic'..? 20 Jan 2010
By Lexx
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been interested Devin's work since the insanely heavy Neo-Thrash of SYL's 'Alien', but for some reason, this album escaped my radar. 'Addicted' could be a close relative of that album. It's very loud, and has the same claustophobically-heavy processed sound. Yet one thing makes this stand head and shoulders above: the amazing Anneke Van Giersbergen .
I only found out by perusing Amazon that the great Anneke had guested on this. Needless to say, I didn't even need to hear any previews - I ordered it immediately.
Her voice, as you should know, if you have been paying attention to the Euro metal scene over the last ten years, is as crystalline and pure as it ever was, and seems to sit comfortably above all of Devin's noise. Nothing can taint it.
Therefore it's a shame that it only truly dominates the middle part of the album. Were this FULL of Anneke tracks, 'Addicted' would have been a contender for 'greatest female-fronted metal album ever'.
That said, it is still worth buying, as the whole thing is a brilliant, and eccentric, exercise in melodic, progressive metal. But let's hope Devin and Anneke go the whole hog and form a band, because together, they are just TOO good.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Return of Hevy Devy. 9 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Since rediscovering my intense passion for the wizardry of progressive metal prodigy and mad man Devin Townsend through a long time friend of mine, `Accelerated Evolution, I took it upon myself to enter into his wicked mind and explore the discography of most of his projects, including this one who're simply known as Devin Townsend Project. It's easy to get confused as to which record features under which project because he tends to stick closely to old band names when conjuring up new ideas through fresh projects. For example, there has previously been a band known as The Devin Townsend Band and now we have the Devin Townsend Project. Even when Devin has released records through bands with far different names, they're still caught up in his obsession of naming projects after himself and whilst I would consider this rather pretentious if anyone else had come up with the idea, I cannot help but feel that it is justified the more I listen to his works. I'm fairly sure that every record he appears on, he is the center point of creativity and the aptly entitled `Addicted' is no different.

Despite the fact that Devin obviously works with talented members of the metal industry, or even former members of it such as Anneke van Giersbergen, he still manages to outshine these consummate professionals by putting in a totally mind blowing performance at the heart of whatever project he is currently plugging to the audience. Initially my reaction to `Addicted' was one of huge disappointment. I remember reading somewhere, though I don't recall where specifically, this sophomore being billed as the next `Biomech', a record I worship every day like it is my religious saviour. In fact, I believe it was even compared to `Biomech' as if they were incredibly similar.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent
First off, I am a fan of the more heavy aspects of Devin Townsend's works. Deconstruction is my absolute favourite cd from him.
Addicted is somewhat more of a pop record. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A joy from take-off to arrival
Anneke's performances of Hyperdrive with her band, Agua de Annique, are I guess what led me to this album by Devin Townsend Project, and I've got to say it's rather compulsive. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius in action
I didn't like any of the SYL albums and for that i pretty much ignored everything that Devin has done ( and i was wrong ).
Just sit and listen to this.

Quite a change from Ki but equally as good. I personally love all of Devin Townsends albums so I warmed to this very easily. Some songs are quite pop based but also grudgy. Read more
