Kindly Bent To Free Us is another great album by Cynic. Paul, Sean and Malone's musicianship is excellent as always, full of amazing melodic, intricate guitar & drum-work, beautiful progressions and odd time signatures. The bass is more pronounced than ever and it's a welcomed change as in my opinion as you can appreciate Malone's contribution the record.
My favourites are Moon Heart Sun Head, Gitanjali & Holy Fallout but all the songs are great. It has a far more natural sound compared to the highly polished releases like Traced In Air and Carbon Based Anatomy, but I'd say it was intentional and adds to the atmosphere and dynamics of the songs.
Overall a very solid release by Cynic showcasing their constant evolution and musical prowess. A classic no doubt.
