5 stars The mighty Ziltiod by the master of crazy himself Devin Townsend, now im a massive massive Heavy Devie fan so when i heard he was comming up with this album a concept album about an alien who travels lightyears to earth in search for the perfect cup of coffee i knew that this would be one non stop thrill ride, and it is. Its a bit like a rollercoaster just as you think its gonna be all stright it just dives into the crazy again, and boy do we love Mr Townsend for that, this album (in my opinion) shows that Devin is this century's Frank Zappa and really shows just how crazy the man is. The opening track ZTO is basically Ziltoids theme tune and a cool wee ditty its the longer tracks like BY YOUR COMMAND, SOLAR WINDS and COLOR YOUR WORLD that Dev really shines with this pristene wall of sound he is so famous for, just this insane wall of drop tuned 7 string guitars and programmed drums mixed with Devins incredible voice and production style make for one fantastic album, other standout tracks include ZILTOIDIA ATTAXX!!!, HYPERDRIVE and THE GREYS. For fans of Devin i doubt i have to mention just how good the musicmanship in this album is as its already established he is just an unreal talent and a one of a kind musician;

ZTO ? 9/10 By Your Command ? 10/10 Ziltoidia Attaxx!!! ? 8/10 Solar Winds ? 10/10 Hyperdrive ? 9/10 N9 ? 7/10 Planet Smasher ? 7/10 Omnidimensional Creator ? 7/10 Color Your World ? 10/10 The Greys ? 10/10 Tall Latte ? 8/10

My Conclusion? Highly recomended a fantastic album that shows Devin in his prime
