Another excellent addition to the DTP discography.

Sky Blue continues in the same vein as Addicted and Epicloud, but is a lot more melancholy, and at times quite dark if you dig a little deeper. It mainly deals with themes of bereavement and will make you cry at times. You'll be singing along to this one for weeks!

Dark Matters is nuts! It mainly sounds like a combination of Deconstruction and Infinity, with huge swelling choirs over complex fiddly guitar parts. It contains the most epic and larger-than-life compositions since the Infinity days, and any fan of his more multitracked, complex music will gobble this up (providing you have sense of humour for the narrated parts).

Ok so I've had this since launch, but like most music I like to live with it for a while before I review. So this is my opinion after listening to it for a few weeks.

As you are probably aware, this album is a double album; Disc 1 being the DTP album Sky Blue and Disc 2 called Dark Matters, which is a sequal of sorts for Devin's Ziltoid the Omniscient album. I actually got the special edition with a third Disc, which features the Dark Matters album without the spoken word parts.

Firstly Sky Blue, and to be honest the first thing that sprung to mind was that it had a lot in common with like Terria and Ocean Machine. There is a lot of those albums rainy-day-melancholy feel to it, albeit with some of Epiclouds pop-metal twisted in. It actually works suprisingly well, and as ever Anneke's vocals add extra harmony to this album. The electronic sounds on this album overall work well, although occassionally they seemed a little jarring. For me, the stand out track is Warrior; which has a lot of the floaty-ness of Ki and is just a gorgeous sound full of emotion. It's a great addition to the DTP albums that have come before, and flows on from Epicloud very well.

The main event however is Dark Matters. I will confess that this took a while to click. Because this is not just a concept album, oh no. This is a full blown narrated story space-rock opera. I guess I would sum it up by saying this is what would happen if you tried to describe War of the Worlds to a ADHD kid high on coffee and sugar. It's totally insane. On first listen it was all a bit over-the-top and a bit overwhelming. Also this album is stacked to the brim with cheese. It's one of the cheesiest albums I own.

2 fantastic albums in one. Sky Blue sounds much more grand and euphoric, much like the title suggests. Dark Matters is the nuts sequel we expected from Ziltoid and sounds a bit darker while also including plenty of dialogue telling part 2 of his story.
If you're a Devin fan then go for it, it's hard to be disappointed. For new fans this is a very accessible part of Devin's career and a great intro to his genius.

Five stars is not enough. On 26th December my son in Canada told me about a bloke called Devin Townsend whose musical output was at times on an industrial scale. On 26th December my life changed.

In just over a month I've attempted to listen to all of this guys output and he is quite honestly the most bonkers musician out there. But more than that he manages to change the musical atmosphere from dark imagery to epic outbursts of joyous rapture in a second, leaving the listener suspended mid way through a 'head-banging fest' and into 'PMSL land' until the tears run down your face.

He seems a really nice bloke in interviews, his tour of the' Framus Guitar' factory is like the best well organised acid trip imaginable.

Z is very possibly just an ordinary day for Devin; 'Oh Aliens are invading earth, I think I'll write a few songs about that. I'll get the lads together and give Annek van Giersbergen a ring, should have the CD knocked off just in time for tea.'

OK even they couldn't get it done that quick but if you need to justify your purchase you just don't get Devin Townsend, the lead breaks will not melt his illuminated fretboard and his guitar is not tuned so low a whale could hear it. Forget anything you may read on dark metal/death metal/(insert your own version here) metal sites about him loosing his way, he is actually leaving them all behind, they will become the dinosaurs.

Devin is the future of music, it is here now, enjoy the ride, buy Z and Epicloud and everything else (listen to some of SYL first) going off the rails isn't all fun and games . . . . .

Another Quality performance as from the artist Devin and his crew.
If you are new to this then I could say the sound is modern progressive heavy metal strongly backed with choral and female vocals and some synths with dynamic shifts of mood and style. It has been described as "pop" metal and I suppose if you stick it next to the likes of Naplam Death or Cradle of Filth it is definitely at the lighter end of the spectrum. The tone is there is light at the end of the tunnel and its NOT the fires of Damnation.

This one had 3 discs - Sky Blue which is a devin townsend project record - pretty much a follow up to Epicloud , Dark Matters - a sequel to Ziltoid the Omniscient and Dark Matters Raw a bonus disc which is the same but without the comic book /musical interlude parts. I am not going in to exhaustive detail here - if you like Devin's stuff then you will certainly dig this. As the name suggests its a more quiet contemplative record than Epicloud though still posesses plenty of guitar revving moments.

Dark Matters is a direct follow up to Ziltoid the Omniscient - sort of a geek space musical though with our favourite coffee swilling invader as more of a hero this time - sort of.

I have only listened to it a few times so far so not 5 star yet - I expect it will grow on me a bit more though devins records are so multi layered they usually take a good number of spins before revealing the full depth of the vision. And it is vision at work here folks this guy is an artist not a money grabbing hatchet man - proving it here by featuring a "choir" of vocals recorded by fans to backing tracks he had uploaded on a special web site last year. How's that for a thank you?
