5.0 out of 5 stars Amplifier's Magnum Opus!, 23 Aug 2012
By 
This review is from: The Octopus (Audio CD)
It's fair to say that music really gets better than this. This is one of the best albums ive had the pleasure of listening to recently. Amplifier push the boundaries with this space rock/progressive masterpiece of a double album. How they aren't on top of the world is beyond me. Sel Balamir has pushed the band to its greatest point and what a peak this really is.

Every texture of song you could wish for is hear. Pure adreniline rushes of space rock like 'Interstellar'. Theres hook filled, head nodding songs like 'The Wave' and 'The Emperor'. Heavy but catchy as hell songs like 'Interglacial Spell' and 'Golden Ratio'. Dark, brooding numbers like the title-track and 'Bloodtest'. Slower and thoughtful tunes like the wonderfully named 'Trading Dark Matter On The Stock Exchange' and 'Oscar Night//Embryo'. Every single song hits the mark, and at over 2 hours long that is an incredible achievement. The great thing is with all the ambient and sci-fi noises the album really does sound like it was recorded in space.

Underrated doesn't even begin to cover the album. The Octopus proves that Amplifier are one of the most talented bands around at the moment and has to be heard to believe how great it truely is.
