4 stars The name speaks for itself. Yes, Devin Townsend's Ocean Machine explains what the album is. For a debut solo album, this release has the "maturity" of an album. The songs are great. The music is excellent. The compositions are perfect. It combines the high energy of metal and the psychedelic ambience a la Pink Floyd. Devin proves that he is a true multi- talented musician. As you heard him in latest the Ayreon project "Human Equation", he delivers something special in progressive metal universe. Ocean Machine opens with "Seventh Wave" which is clearly explain what the ocean is. You can feel nuance of a high tide there. Flowing, bringing you to another world. "Hide Nowhere" is another great track. The modern epic "The Death of Music" is another killer track which is clocking at 12 minutes. Overall, this is a very good debut album of Devin Townsend. A genius which is not too many people know about him. You must dig more of his music. To me, he is as genius as Daniel Gildenlow of Pain of Salvation. Ocean Machine is a great opener to enter the world of Devin Townsend. 4.5 stars actually!
