Format: Audio CD
Ok, it would be very easy for me sit down and write a very biased review of this album, BTBAM being my favourite band for quite some time now they could probably do no wrong in my eyes but facts being facts this is a stunning, tour de force of a progressive metal album.

The band have come on leaps and bounds in maturing their sound since their self-titled debut, honing their song-writing abilities into something quite astonishing and The Great Misdirect is their finest example of this, as ever they contrast heavy/soft sections of music arguably better than anyone else in progressive metal, the music twists and turns through heavy grind-core-like passages, clean Pink Floyd-esque bridges, honky tonk piano intros and nu-age breakdowns whilst astoundingly retaining a fantastic fluidity which brings everything together rather than causing the album to sound like 200 songs crammed into 6.

Another highlight of the album is of course the superb musicianship on show, and with all the talent on offer here it would have been more than easy to allow this album to slip into a self-indulgent shred-fest. BTBAM though, in usual style, use their abilities to add to the music and to enhance the listeners experience rather than detract from it and even with plenty of lead guitar and blindingly technical rhythmical passages it never feels like a case of "I am awesome, watch how fast I can play".

Although being a progression of the sound that they truly mastered on 'Colors' I couldn't, no matter how many times I've listened to this so far, find a favourite song.

BTBAM delivers an album even stronger than "colors". Proggier, more melodic but still trademark BTBAM light and shade with PLENTY of aggression a la Death Metal and Grind modes. The songs are a marvel, extremely well constructed, lengthier but never dull, with a lot of soloing and stunning first rate musicianship. A must buy for any Prog or Metal fan but also a must listen for every open minded music lover. Enjoy BTBAM's accomplished maturity!

The package comes with an audio CD containing the album, and a 2 layer DVD with some video footage about the recording and other random stuff on one side, and the album in 5.1 DvD audio quality on the other side.

BTBAM is definetely a band worth listening to, and this album is meant to be listened from the beginning to the end with open mind. The level of talent, work, passion and care for details that this band can display of every single one of their songs is really remarkable. If you don't know about the BTBAM, this is a good album to start with, and if you already know them, I'm sure you'll enjoy every single listen of this masterpiece.

In my opinion, their best album, and it should definetely be one of the top 3 albums this year.
