5 stars Perfect. Nothing more to say. The complete maturity of a complete artist. This album is something never heard before. The production is probably the one that a thousand artist sought for thirty years and the songs are a collection of masterpieces. Dev's guitars sound like nothing before they completely blow everything on the metal parts or make you float in a forest in the clean parts. His voice reaches here its peak, the perfect equilibrium between the classic screamings and the clean parts and the interpretation is somethin' epic.The music is something I don't know how to describe. Imagine to be in the middle opf a prairie, you turn left and hear some metal, you turn right and hear rock; in front of you there's some pop and over your shoulders you hear some ambient acoustic music.... all kept together by a deep feedback which comes out various times during the listening of the album. Every song is an architecture, is a cathedral of sound. Since the false intro "Olive" to the closing track, the nearly-pop "Stagnant" every little piece is in its right place. I just want to name the 9-minute epic "Earth day", a savage run in the forest, and "Deep peace", whose name says all.... with a guitar solo on which I won't spend any word, just listen..... Everyone in the world should listen at least once in his life to this. If perfection exists, with this album Dev goes very very close to it.
