5.0 out of 5 stars Meshuggah for Hippies
Very nice instrumentals. The Polyrhytmic, jazz influenced metal and 8 stringed rumbling found in Meshuggah, crossed with the beautiful almost psychedelic instrumentals of Ozric Tentacles. Meshuggah for Hippies? If you are a fan of Meshuggah, or fredrik Thordendals Special Defects or Ozric Tentacles you will not be disappointed.

Also - check out the guitar...

3.0 out of 5 stars Heavy math rock?
Interesting album - or should I write: for me an album made up a number of very interesting tracks amongst some indifferent tracks, so the whole may sound rather confused wrt what bag this music is in. We start off with speed shred metal nodding to math rock and then go off at tangents - excellent in my book. My favourite track, 'Behaving badly' is the closest I've heard...

5.0 out of 5 stars The album that changed my view of music forever!, 19 Mar 2012
This review is from: Animals As Leaders (Audio CD)
I purchased this album after hearing 'CAFO' elsewhere, and I must admit (after a little listening, since the experimental nature of the album can take some getting used to if you're not a previous listener of this polyrhythmic genre of music) that it was in my top 3 albums ever! Not bad for a bands first album. In fact, I very much look forward to hearing there work in the future.
This band are so ahead of their time!
Purchase just for the absolute 'non-genericness' (if that can pass as a word) if you have no other reason to do so.
But I promise that every song will blow your mind!

This review is from: Animals As Leaders (MP3 Download)
Interesting album - or should I write: for me an album made up a number of very interesting tracks amongst some indifferent tracks, so the whole may sound rather confused wrt what bag this music is in. We start off with speed shred metal nodding to math rock and then go off at tangents - excellent in my book. My favourite track, 'Behaving badly' is the closest I've heard to the math rock of Battles (but I don't listen to that much math rock - indeed this is a genre which I dip into trying to find music that appeals). Elsewhere the math rock is a lot heavier than Battles' but played with considerable precision. On the downside, a couple of the tunes sound similar wrt composition to other tunes heard on the album, hence I feel there is a repetition of ideas - so suggesting the album could have stood the pruning of a few superflous tunes.

On balance, an album worth checking out, but IMHO suffering from a few low points.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful, 18 Sep 2012

By God this awful...

A Steve Vai fan with an eight string guitar. It's quite laughable really if you have a sense of humour...

This isn't music folks, and it isn't even trying to be. It's a kid with an eight string guitar doing everything possible to get himself an interview in Guitar World magazine. And it succeeded!
Make no mistake, there are no songs here. There are no memorable melodies, no emotion and certainly nothing to distance himself from the average guitar player out there. He ain't Hendrix and he brings nothing new to the table apart from his guitar that has two extra strings...

Tosin is sadly typical of the modern "X Factor" generation... all flash and no substance. Why Guitar World magazine is teaming him up with Steve Vai is beyond me??
