3 stars Some great guitar work and moody moments make "Devouring" a good choice for those seeking some smart, instrumental background music with a classic prog sound.

The album is solid throughout, with enough variety to keep things from getting too stale. Frequent textures and slow jams abound, with a few great, melodic guitar solos disperesed to keep things exciting.

The album is most hurt by its dated sound, which uses classic instrumentation with little experimentation amongst the players-- especially on keys, which sound hokey when not utilized for soundscapes.

A good instrumental for those seeking it, but don't expect anything too groundbreaking. "Devouring" spins its wheels in a sort of malaise and can't muster up the energy to compete with more interesting instrumental groups.

Songwriting: 2 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: NA Style/Emotion/Replay: 3
