4 stars Casualties of Cool is one of the most recent iterations of the Canadian prog genius, Devin Townsend!

And in this album, he works together with the Singer Che Aimee Dorval and he took the most rockabilly and groovy elements from Ki and they mixed with the new age and folk element of Ghost, to create an adventurous and very catchy sounding record.

The production is exquisite and all sounds just fantastic, specially the mellow vocals of Dorval and the splendid guitars from Devin.

Maybe not for a thorough listen every day, but just perfect for background a hundred of times!

Best Tracks: Daddy, The Code, Forgive Me, The Bridge?

Conclusion: Casualties of Cool is a musical project of our favorite Canadian genius with tons of ambients, groovy rhythms, beautiful vocals and an awesome guitars.

It's not really new if you know the career of this man, because Devin had previous experiments with this sounds mainly in Ki and Ghost and it's also a bit repetitive in the long term, but it's a beautiful journey perfect to be enjoyed as background music multiple times.

My rating: ****
