4 stars I popped this into my CD player, expecting to hear something boring and aged in the bad way. How many bands come back 10 or more years later and disappoint people greatly. Traced in Air is a great return album for the band Cynic, whose last album Focus was considered a masterpiece by many in the Death Metal and Prog Metal scene. Evolutionary Sleeper is the one track that in my opinion captures their new sound to a tee. Its very much technical metal, yet somehow sounds experimental like The Mars Volta or the band 3. This album goes from fast angry riffing, to beautiful spacey passages all in the same song. This is must for any Progressive Metal fans collection.
