5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly amazing!, 14 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Terraforming (Audio CD)
This album has the infectious hooks, instantly memorable songs and subtle complexity that made Tool's "Aenima" and earthtone9's "Arc'Tan'Gent" such modern masterpieces. There is hints of hardcore/mathcore, death metal, jazz, Latin, pop and God knows what else in their sound, but it all sounds stunning and flows perfectly. Just take "Unfamiliar Ceiling" for example, which shifts between incredibly catchy Latin/pop and full on death metal, or "Lonely in Your Arms" with it's beautiful flute-led intro leading into dissonant riffing and screams.
Their singer has a versatile and emotive voice that reminds me of Maynard James Keenan, Mike Patton and Steven Brodsky (old and new style), with a mix of gentle, harmonious singing and hardcore screams/death grunts. The rest of the band are astonishing as well, it is rare to find such a collection of talent in a single band.
The songs are arranged into chapters, meaning that the whole album comes off as one big seamless work of art, rather than just a collection of songs randomly thrown together with no flow between them. One of the finest albums of the millenium so far, you simply must own this without excuse.
