5 stars Easily the best album of 2008!!

As time flies my music taste changes and I tend to listen to only a few metal bands nowadays and Gojira is among them. I loved both "The Link" and "From Sirius To Mars" but this is the first album that deserves five stars. The music hadn't changed that much since the previous album it's still death metal that's pretty slow and "mechanic" with a couple of folk influences, what's new here are the blasts on the drum in the faster moments and also the songwriting is much more interesting, the song structures are very complex now and I love it. As usual Mario's drumming draws attention and is the highlight of this album - this guy is along, Brann Dailor of Mastodon and Danny Walker of Intronaut, one of the best young drummers in the world, he's very innovative. The vocals have improved very much since the previous album, they are now full of life and aggression. But the greatest improvement I think is the production, the sound is heavy, full, rich and spacious and shows everything Gojira has to offer.

This is a must have for all tech/extreme prog fans
