Staff pick by
Darkside Momo

08.07.2011 Mix the madness of Infinity with the whole stupid craziness of Ziltoïd, and Strapping Young Lad's multi-layered sonic aggression. Add an orchestra, and a bunch of the best extreme vocalists around.

And serve with a cheeseburger!

  The greater of two evils: Madness in a piece of plastic.

Rating: 8 I really like this album but excessive orchestration (in my opinion) spoils my impression a bit. I enjoy crazy guitar parts, though.

Rating: 4 Meh. This is way too hyped. It's just random mess and noise. No groove or rhythm that could be memorable. Also nowhere near the intensity and heaviness of old SYL days. Devin obviously needed to sugar-caot it.

Rating: 8 It's the weakest of the four albums by DTP to be honest, but even then 'Deconstruction' still as some fantastic moments. The main flaw here is that some songs are just too long for their own good, but I suppose that's what Mr. Townsend intended.

Rating: 8 Very good album. It just misses focus in a lot of parts.

Rating: 9 If you can understand this album it's definitely a masterpiece. It took me a few hears to digest it but now i can't have enough of it

  My personal favorite Devy album. Honestly prefer it over any of SYL's stuff. He just does the chaotic prog perfectly. And all the guests really seemed to enhance it rather than just seeming like cheap gimmicks.

  Pandemic is a really great song!!, really unique!
