5 stars Kindly Bent To Free Us is my first album from Cynic, so I want it to be known that the merits of this release are not being compared to the other two albums that are highly rated. When I first saw that Cynic had shorter albums and no epic 20 minute songs, I was less than thrilled to give them a shot. Boy am I glad that I did, and now I am very excited to get the other two releases. This album touches on metal, progressive rock, jazz, and alternative rock. It has layers of depth, and I have not been bored for one second. I think the people that love prog want some complexity, and Cynic has it in spades. The precision of the musicianship is what initially grabbed my attention, but every listen unveils nuances from the very complex layers. There are times where I feel like I am listening to OSI, and other times when it feels like a fusion jazz record. I recommend this album to everyone that loves music.
