5 stars An immense, sweeping experience, this Devin Townsend album will take the listener on a masterful journey through styles, emotions, intensity, and tenderness.

Be warned that it takes a long time to enjoy what's going on after the amazing "Earth Day", but the pay-off is incredible. Devin's savage/delicate guitar work and compositions are exceptionally enjoyable. His voice balances the two extremes nicely, but I enjoy his screams more than his tender stuff. The songs themselves have tremendous variety, which never makes for a boring moment.

"Terria's" scope and pacing is expertly handled, and the listener will find themselves flying through ambient and powerful extremes throughout. The experience is staggering, and I honestly cannot think of another band within the genre which reaches this level of sophistication and thoughtfulness. It's cerebral, playful, sarcastic, intense, delicate, and energizing all at once.

"Terria" is a must for all metal fans; a multi-faceted gem that will only shine brighter with more listens.
