5 stars Why didn't I give this album a chance earlier!?!?

What a fantastic album from a refreshing band! What really strikes you about this album from the beginning is Cedrics vocals. They are loud, high pitched, and sometimes nasily. But, they have more emotion and feeling than anything ive heard in a long time. The next thing that stood out was how different it sounded. Extremely distorted guitars, machine-gun rapid fire drumming, latin grooves, and...punk influences?!?! Yah, this is not your average prog album. AND I LOVE IT! I know im a bit late on discovering the phenominon that is this 'new' prog band, but wow, if this is where prog is going im glad im here to experience it, and better late than never! Everything else that can be said, has already so ill just stop myself before i begin ranting on.

In Conclusion: If you have a truly Progressive mind, then forward thinking music is what you look for, right? Well this album is all about exploring the un-known of prog. It grabs you like a rollercoaster that speeds off at 100 mph and doesn't let you off until you've tossed your cookies. Twice.

5 stars, no doubt.
