Facelift.

Canvas Solaris once again tries to revamp their unique style of tech-metal and graft some new styles. On the 'Atomized Dream', some post-rock and minimalistic influences are thrown into the cog wheels. The problem that occurs on this album is that the new influence is merely separated from the technical metal and not painted in with it. In other words, this is a disconnected piece of work. There are still many niece sections and tracks themselves.but I don't find anything to really stand out except for 'Reflections Carried to the Mirror', which is really the only one that merges the two styles on this album together.

Some other helpful additions include a much more prominent synthesizer, but still a mostly backing instrument to the guitar which is the obvious forefront for this band. Speaking of which, the guitars are still pumping out great technical and speedy riffs that still maintain a listenable melody, a trademark of this band.

This album is still lacking some of the finest features of this band, but it is still a really good album in my opinion. I will still continue to purchase their albums for a little longer.
