3 stars Thought this album would be an evolution of Sound Awake or at least an extension and what it ends up being, is another band that let their egos get the best of them. Sound Awake and Themata have something this album seriously lacks, structure. I'm all about any crazy sounds or poly-rhythms you can throw at me but this album is just a mess. I looked forward to this album for so long and it's a major letdown. At least they didn't sell out though! Another band that is releasing their new album soon is Dead Letter Circus(another Aussie prog-rock band). I think their album will hopefully make up for this mess "Asymmetry". I'm a musician and I feel like half this album sounds like they're messing around, I just don't get it.. Sound Awake is such a masterpiece, this album leaves you hanging, every time you think a song is going to crescendo and go all crazy, it ends... It's really frustrating that these guys took 4 years to make this. I just don't get it... Just my opinion but I guess we'll see what Dead Letter Circus is up to and Tool in 2014. Here's hoping for some better albums!
