I prefer 'Dimension Hatroess', but 'Nothingface' has a lot of variety.

I kinda like the music on Voïvod's old albums (until "Dimension Hatross") but I've never been able to enjoy the band because of their shitty vocalist. Put a decent vocalist on their old albums and it would be enjoyable.
They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody

I am a HUGE Voivod fan but this release gets waaaay too much props. It's not a bad album by any means I just think the production is too "light and fluffy" if that makes sense. I'll take Dimension Hatross pre- and Angel Rat post- but nothing compares to the mighty The Outer Limits...

The best Voivod Album IMO is "The outer Limits".

You sir, just won the internet, props.

Since there is no official review I am giving newcomers a little info to go on. No song by song though.

Voivod's 3 album run reaches the finale with 1989's Nothingface. Pure classic! Some people think NF is to much fluff and polished. I agree to a point if they had stayed that way but a good bit of their albums in the mid to late 90's are far from fluffy. I have to speak the truth though and that is Nothingface is a classic. The songwriting and execution are near flawless. My fellow musicians would agree for the most part that if you keep doing the same thing over and over you get bored and become uninterested leading to uninspired bland songs. Guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour reached the summit on Nothingface. The production doesn't sound like any other of their albums and thats what makes it work. The complex progressions Piggy plays would sound muddled if overly distorted. War and Pain and Rrroooaaarrr!!! are the only two similar in sound to me.

As a big fan of Vektor, I was very much looking forward to listening to Voivod. While the instrument parts are all very well written and played, I really don't feel that the vocals suit them. It's not that they're bad, it just doesn't sound like they should be paired together. I think I would have enjoyed this album even more as an instrumental release, or with a harsher, more death/black metal vocalist to compliment the chaotic atmosphere.
