5 stars Due to the warning message that comes out when you select the five stars rate...I tought..."Is this really a masterpiece...?"...and the answer is: It cant be any other way!! YouŽll now it qhen you hear this...theres nothing like it. Its extremely genius. Devin Townsend blew me away with the ultra-heavy-killer SYL proyect, so I didnt now what to expect about this more soft(than SYL) and pop-rock-prog influenced metal album, because to me...this is still metal. I listened to it and it was obvious....Townsend had created a classic. Because of its excellent songwritting, amazing progression from SYL, the indcredible mixture of the metal and prog(mostly symphonic) rock wolrds, the futuristic ambients(hear seventh wave....its like being on a robotic sci-fi movie) and the never heard before and purely original style......because all of this I do consider this a masterpiece and my favorite Devin Townsend record, even tough they are all astounding. You have it all here starting from powerfull rock metal tracks passing from symphonic rock metal tracks to futuristic ambient progressive rock....and a beautiful mellow bonus track. A really fullfilling trip very enjoyable listen....really easy to listen complete every time...its a continuous record not a just bunch of tracks(like most records)...I recomend to hear this in one shot....lights off...just focus your mind into the music and let it another the future(to me at least). Impossible not to jump and evean headbanging on "regulator" and "Hide Nowhere", impossible not to dream and flote around on "Seventh Wave", impossible not to cry on "Thing beyond Things" and its impossible not to be completely blown away and taken to another world on the amazing trilogy of "funeral" , "bastard" and "the death of music". YOU MUST BUY THIS ALBUM!!!
