Am a huge 'Vool fan already, so was REALLY hoping Asymmetry would be a stonker,
and it is!
Abit of a slow burner to begin with, and kind of an eclectic mix of tracks - heavy and light, refined and raw, gentle and brutal (is the only way can describe it).
A really clever album, and doesnt at all feel like a bunch of singles on a disk, feels like a proper flowing album.

Loved Themata, loved Sound Awake ...loving this now too. It's like a velvet-wrapped sledgehammer dipped in Monica Belucci's tears (probably).

I was I little disappointed on the first listen, although I identified that it would be a grower of a record.
like the first time listening to Tool or The Mars Volta it isn't instantly accessible, but the more you put in to it the more you get out. Less euphoric moments than Sound Awake but a solid, solid album. Better than Themata, a touch behind sound awake (in my opinion)
If this is the standard Karnivool fans should expect, going forward... sign me up. I've been reading comparisons to Tool and I have to say, they are warranted. They are different bands, but if you like one, you'll no doubt like the other.

Listen, learn and understand what this album is all about. I can never doubt the sheer genius that these guys put across in their glorious music. Opinions are opinions, but have you really listened to this... really?

Firstly let me qualify this review by stating I am a big fan of Karnivool's output; I thought 'Themata' was excellent and 'Sound Awake' total genius. I'm also a huge fan of prog rock in general, from 70s bands like Yes/Rush to contemporary stuff like Tool/Meshuggah. I had high expectations of this album and was utterly blown away on my first listen. Blown away by how incredibly devoid of songs this album is.

Here's a song by song guide:

Track 1: Instrumental intro songs can often be tedious or unnecessary. Never fear because 'Aum' is a minute or so of absolutely nothing. It sits somewhere between super minimalism performed quietly and pure silence. I wouldn't even call it an instrumental because there is pretty much no instrumentation.

Track 2-13: Nothing much happens here. Twelve tracks of forgettable meandering averageness with a bit about 'chemical fire' somewhere in the middle. I remembered that line not because it had a killer hook or beautiful melody, but rather it was just repeated quite a lot and on that account was more memorable by default.

Track 14: An instrumental outro that somehow endeavours to be even more nothing than the intro. 'Om' is essentially someone playing a single piano note very quietly every 12 seconds. It's not 'arty' chaps - it's lazy nonsense.

I listened to the album on multiple occasions on accounts that it might be a grower - I love albums that you don't 'get' until about 5 listens, but this is categorically not one of them. I take that back, in a way it is a grower; it grows even more laborious with every listen.

Bought this for the dvd. Well worth it even at the price. Fantastic performance, I could watch Ian Kenny on stage all day. He always comes across like the band are doing their thing while he's at the front of the stage, part of the crowd, connecting with them with every word he sings. Really unique and charismatic performer.

This is the only Karnivool album I own, although I have listened to their earlier stuff and do intend on purchasing the other albums at some point. This album is very dark, just the whole vibe is incredibly... I dunno, a bit unsettling. Not in a bad way either. It's a very good experience to listen to the entire album as a whole. I think that's the best and only way to really get this album. There is no "hit single" and if there was then I think it'd defeat the purpose of the album. I mean yeah okay you've got "We Are" which obviously works by itself and was released as a single but again you don't listen to it and think "instant hit" and I highly doubt that that was the intention. What Karnivool have created here is a very disturbing, artistic and also rather beautiful piece of work. Like I said, I don't own any other Vool albums and have only just go into them really, so it's not as if I'm here defending my favourite band or anything. I really recommend taking some time just to put the album on and listen to the entire thing all the way through. It won't appeal to everyone, but that's just the nature of the music. Enjoy it for what it is.

The final track titles on both the great (Themata) first album and the excellent (Sound Awake) second album are appropriately called "Change".

Perhaps this is due to some forsight by the band that they had something up their sleeves regarding the release of their third album, because God is Asymmetry different. And, sadly, not in a good way.

I am like most of the other reviewers a huge Vool fan, and i remain one despite the efforts on this CD. I am indeed going to see them rock out live in Glasgow in November, but i genuinely hope they dont play much of this album because if they do i may fall asleep, which is not at all what Karnivool are about. They are (were) in my opinion about sucking you in, delicately yes, but then slapping you across the face with an almighty whallop of lyrical pantomine or a guitar or bass riff that makes your pants quake. I love this sort of music, but unfortunately i have to say no pants quaking has occurred in the multiple listen-throughs i have done with Asymmetry.

Do not get me wrong there are 3-4 good songs on the album, namely We Are, Eidolon (the best) and Sky Machine. But these songs genuinely would not have made it on to a b-sides album of Sound Awake studio recordings.

I do encourage you all to still purchase this CD, i do not believe my opinion is universal. And i want Karnivool to remain around so they can wake me back up with a sterling return in the 4th album. I just hope to Jesus that the Vool dont go down the Opeth path... please please no!!!!
