5.0 out of 5 stars Shouldn't be on the 11 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD
I first had this band brought to my ageing attention by my youngest son who had purchased the bands first album as birthday gift. The first hearing was a real experience, it happened during an 8 hour trek from home to the deepest depths of East Anglia, It turned out to be a bit of an epiphany, if there is such a thing as a bit of such an experience. Anyhoo, this is a band that managed to take me back to several decades ago when listening to new, or different stuff, fired up such a novel sensation that you remained in the "continue to replay" CD mode that you can lose all track of time. Such was the effect of said first album.
So with a little trepidation, I purchased P II.
Trepidatious I should not have been.
This a stunning album, in parts like the heaviest of sounds bolted together by latter day disciples of "Pantera" and "Fear Factory" that suddenly changes to violin loaded "PFM" and even sections of early "ELP"
This slab of new music is completely mind boggling in just how many different styles of all types of music it nods in the direction of.
Not in a bad or cluttered or grating manner but in a style of terrific substance and depth.
It kind of feels like the sensation you get after a rather explosive sneeze, all de-cluttered and able to take a very deep, clean, satisfying breath of fresh mountain air, believe me!!!
As usual I refuse to detail favourite tracks, I always believe that the individual listener does not need to know whatever genre, sub or other wise that certain others feel the need to pigeon hole music in.
My favourites are mine, and I refuse to sway your original listening by skipping what might be important tracks to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prog Album 2012 16 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD
Personally, there was not another album that could compete to this in 2012. They're all fantastic writers and I'm so glad this is recognised. Spencer's choruses are the best things vocally i've probably ever heard. Favourite tune? Facepalm Mute. But they're all quality tunes.

Quite often I'll buy an album, listen to it a few times, then put it on the shelf until I listen to it again a few years later. Periphery II is one of those special albums that I still listen to on a regular basis. It's a bit more accessible than the first album which some may see as a good point while others not so much. I see it as a different album and should be approached as such.

Spencer has definitely improved - his growls/screams have much more substance and his clean melodies are just beautiful. The instrumental aspect of the music is just as good, containing many elements of 'traditional' Periphery and Bulb (Make Total Destroy) along with a more melodic side (mainly heard in songs such as 'The Gods Must Be Crazy!' and what was originally a Haunted Shores song 'Scarlet').

If you liked the first album then you'll probably like this one as well, and while hardcore prog purists may find some of the songs a bit too 'commercial' (and I use that word as loosely as possible because PII is far from it) there are plenty of songs that you will still enjoy. Overall a brilliant album and one that every self-respecting Periphery fan should buy!

good condition, and quick delivery, I can't say more than that, as I bought it for my son's birthday, but they are one of his favourite groups at the moment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid album 5 Jan 2013
By Matt
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A slightly different feel from the first album. Slightly more dreamtheatre-esk and less djenty but album is instantly recognisable as Periphery. Not as genre defining as the first album but then, not in a bad way. Guitar work is fantastic, both in rhythm and lead. Anyone who has been keeping up to date may notice the odd riff that has been released or used elsewhere (Scarlet from Haunted Shores for example...but then Mark and Misha wrote it anyway?) Stand out performance from Spencer here though. An instantly noticeable step up in range and screamed/growled vocals. Especially impressive if it is indeed true that he had zero tuning in production...
