Don't expect to get into this first time round. It lacks the immediacy of City, and in fact, after the inviting first track intro, tries to be as unpleasant a listening experience as possible.
You might reasonably expect this to be a disadvantage, but you would be missing the point - the point being that this record is supposed to be as extreme as possible, and in that it succeeds. Extreme speed on Dirt Pride and Relentless, extreme heaviness on Devour, and extreme anger on (the anti-rape) 'Rape Song'. As a whole, the album is dark and malevolent and it challenges you to not like it.
If you take up the gauntlet, however, the tunes start to come out of the woodwork with repeated spins, and the album takes shape. By perhaps the third spin, your persistence starts to be rewarded, and then you start to wonder why you didn't like it in the first place.
Although the standard is high throughout, with no track that I could single out as poor, there is no real standout track either. If forced, I would state a preference for Devour. The album should be enjoyed as a single,spikey unit, building up to the merciless penultimate track Dirt Pride, and letting then you down slowly into a bed of thorns with the last track, the menacing 'Bring on the Young'.
It's a bit like being in a fight - you know it will hurt - it's just a question of how you react to the pain.......

The unwelcome events in New York of September 11 inspired Devin Townsend to come back to the Strapping Young Lad monicker after five years absence. Good job. This eponymous third album is an object lesson to all wannabe heavy music-makers about exactly what "heavy" is. It also marks the first time that Devin has let the rest of his collaborators chip into the songwriting process and it shows. Gene Hoglan demonstrates his incredible drumming chops while Jed Simon and Byron Stroud tear down the house with the precision metal guitar attack. Which leaves Devin with "just" the flawless production, throat-eviscerating vocal delivery and trademark atmospherics to add.
SYL is a slight departure from previous Strapping albums in its directness. Much like the events that inspired it, the sounds here are less produced and more in your face. The result is likely to wake up any jaded metal fans and make them take note. Whether its the lushness of "Dire" or "Aftermath", the jagged contours of "Rape Song" or the chilling nature of "Bring On The Young", this album will grab your attention, nailgun its foot to the floor and shove its intentions straight down your throat.
Finally - something to sweep away the boring nu-metal and put it in the bin. Strapping Young Lad is back. About time too.

The name of this band definately suggests the nature of their music. Dire is a brilliant intro, its spooky and has a decent riff winded in the middle of it, and then it hits you and you realize how heavy this band is "consequence" never lets up its filled with some of the best drumming you will find in metal today, the next song "relentless" is one of the lighter songs on the album until the ending.
some of these songs have the the heaviness of napalm death, wher you cannot tell what is going on, but this is only on the first few listens, it all becomes clear after that.
The best songs on this album have to be "aftermath" and "Force fed" (the other songs are still all brilliant) these do sound a bit samey at first, they are very heavy songs but have a melodic centre in the middle of them.
if you like your metal hard and fast buy this album you wont be disapointed.
