Customer Review

on 20 September 2004
Devin Townsend is on a different level to everyone else out there trying to burst your ear drums.This was the album that introduced me to 'the dev' and I have been hooked ever since.
If God ever needed a soundtrack to the end of the world, this would be it.This is sonic beligerence at its most unforgiving.
I can't begin to describe the impact of songs like 'detox' and 'spiritaullity'.It's like being invited into a human psyche being held together by the most tenuous thread imaginable. Everything on this album works, Devins vocals soar and plunge, drift and dive while the drumming of 'hooligan' Gene is an absolute sensation. Metal, death metal, nu metal what ever the hell it is you listen to chances are if you haven't heard this you haven't heard anything yet.
Its not often you hear this much passion crammed into such a short space of time(40 minutes.) I'm beat, one day someone will invent an adjective to describe how good this album is or how important Devin Townsend is to music. Seriously, I'm not kidding.Few albums have affected me this profoundly.This is a sensational metal album and an extrodianary album, musically, emotionally and breathtakingly so.
