Time Signature
5 stars While "Human" certainly was innovative and progressive, "Individual Thought Patterns" pushes the bar a whole lot further - and fortunately now the fretless bass is audible.

The song structures are at times insanely complex with several changes in time and tempo, key and scales, and both captivating and werid melody and a lot of brutality and speedy riffage. There are also plenty of odd time signatures and generally insane drumming from Gene Hoglan, the caffeine machine.

The album is progressive and experimental, to be sure; yet it is more accessible to the general death metal audience than, say Cynic and Atheist, which is probably one of the reasons why Death became generally more popular than other progressive death metal acts.

Every song is a masterpiece in itself, but especially "Overactive Imagination", "Jealousy", the title track, and "The Philospher" are worth mentioning as is the quirky "Destiny".

Time Signature | 5/5 |
