5 stars From start to finish to this album amazes me. Each track is just great and the musicianship is top notch. De loused starts off with son et and leads into the heart pounding inertiatic esp. A great way to open the album. Then comes Roulette Dares, it starts off chaotic then beautifully slown down by Cedric's Vocals. This song is one of the highlights on the album and the song ends sounding a little floydish. Next is Drunkship a song with some latin beats and great drumming by Jon. And then Eriatarka comes one of my volta songs of all time.Each song on the album flows so great together and it only gets better from here. Cicatriz esp starts of with some cedric vocals then the song just sucks you in, the guitar playing by omar is just amazing in this song, sounds kinda like santana. Thsi apperatus is next probably the weakest track on the album but good hard rocking chaotic song. Then the beautiful televators is next, one of the slower paced volta songs. Great vocals by cedric on this one. Then comes the highlight of the whole album Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt. I can never get tired of this song, Each musician shows off their best stuff on this song. Cedric and Omar are great composers of music. Some may not like like Cedrics vocals or Omars chaotic guitar playing at times, but these guys are creating some of the best music in the 2000's. If you want to get into some original music/great music listen to De- loused. A great Prog album!
