4 stars This album was excellent, but not in the way I normally describe an album as excellent. It tries new things, and it does it well, still keeping the music good while exploring less-trodden paths.

This album was, to me, an experiment on the border of music and sound. It tested the limits of music, and brought it right to the border of becoming mere sound, then snaps it back into recognizable territory again. Using Violin and horn appear where they are unexpected, and yet fit right into place. The whole album has a feel of barely controlled chaos, creating a very interesting sound, and a pleasing listen. Jazz and rock influences blend together to create an overall mellow sound with schizophrenic leanings to madness.

I am not a huge fan of metal, or usually of albums like this, but I would highly recommend this album to nearly everyone. Even if the genre isn't your cup of tea, this album should intrigue/fascinate any fan of music on this site, and especially entice musicians who know the inner-workings of music, and will be able to recognize the experimental twists and unconventional delves in this album

Scapler | 4/5 |
