4 stars Devin Townsend described this album to be 'an album of melodic and danceable music' with the production of Nickleback's Dark Horse and influences ranging from Meshuggah to Boney M, and he wasnt wrong. While being a lot more stright-forward than Ki, Addicted (for me) was a harder album to get into, ive had this album for 7 months, listened to it at least 10-12 times and i still dont 'get it'. Dont get me wrong some songs like ADDICTED, BEND IT LIKE BENDER and the epic almost metal opera style of SUPERCRUSH are really the saving graces of the album i also really like the reworking of the song HYPERDRIVE the final epic track AWAKE!! and the slow section in the album IH-AH overall i just didnt think it was as strong or as well put together as Ki was, still production (as you'd expect from Devy himself) is top notch and world class musicmanship as per. Maybe i have to listen to both one after the other to truely respect both;

Addicted! - 9/10 Universe in a Ball! - 7/10 Bend It Like Bender! - 8/10 Supercrush! -9/10 Hyperdrive! - 9/10 Resolve! - 8/10 Ih-Ah! - 9/10 The Way Home! - 9/10 Numbered! - 8/10 Awake!! - 10/10

My Conclusion? as i said, not as strong as Ki in my opinion its still Devin Townsend and a second great album in the series
