5 stars After fourteen years of absence, Cynic come back with one of the most astonishing metal albums. 'Traced In Air' is to me, a mix between Oceansize, Death (in which many of the members have features - Drums, guitars) and Yes. Cynic have a unique vocal style, and a smart use of the octaver, very solid drumming, and some of the best executed solos I've seen. A superb mix of jazz and metal, with a surprising coherence. I generally don't appreciate excessive soloing la Petrucci, but here the solos are right where they should be, and go grab these extra notes you never thought of and that make the melodies so unique. An album full of emotion, that can go from a mellow part without drums to a blasting jazz/death metal passage. This album also has a special place in my collection, for it is unique (thus the 5 stars). After one second of music, you instantly identify the sound and style, and the magic initiated in '94 hasn't gone down a single notch. Go buy this album!
