5 stars A few hours ago I listened after a good many years to DIMENSION HATRÍSS again and was rather diasappointed. Now I have done the same with NOTHINGFACE - and man, they blew me away! The first side (of my vinyl version) is comparatively mellow (by Voivod standards) with a good sense for melody and rhythm. The superb cover version of Astronomy Domine fits perfectly as if it were self-penned. On the second side Voivod get more extreme but all ideas work well (and this was not so with HATRÍSS). This record is a perfect example for extreme prog metal with some softer tinges. Side One makes it rather easy to get into the music - and then prepare yourself for Side Two! The only critical point I have to make is that the album ends all of a sudden because the last song doesn't have the feel of a Last Song. So its like waking from an exciting but pleasant dream - 5 stars.
