Does this album fall under the 'djent' banner? Who cares. If you like your guitar-work crisp and not at a constant 100 miles per hour, if you're tired of growling/shouting "vocalists" who couldn't hold a melody if their lives depended on it, if your tastes are a bit more techie than Vai, and far less saccharine than Satriani .. well, you know what my recommendation is. I did give this fantastic record 5 stars, after all. You won't come away from this album whistling high-lights from the tracks, but the music will still be stuck in your head for weeks.
