4 stars Recently i have found myself listening to this band more and more, prompting me to write this review. im not going to be saying much that hasnt already been said; great textures, soundscapes, repetative riffs and structures that bring to mind meshuggah or isis without sounding like messhuggah or isis. very heavy stuff here but it is also emotional, which is where i would like to focus on the last four songs: world to come, from mars, to sirius, and global warming. this is the part of the album i honestly cannot wait for. i feel as if the rest of the disc is a build up for this grand conclusion if you will. great opener, then building, building, building up sound, peaks of heavyness, valleys of mellow textures (flying whales), always this sense of a journey. the last four songs seem to be a conclusion, a realization. i love the guitar especially on from mars. very beautiful, and foreboding which explodes into to sirius and then builds and comes to a climax in global warming, a truly majestic epic of a song. very moving ending that left me wanting more gojira. I dont particularly know why i like gojira, as i am not really into other bands that get lumped into the same category of similarity, but whatever it is, they have it. highly recomended, though not for everyone.
