4 stars This is the album where i think Gojira really found, crafted and perfected their sound, and boy is it a beauty.. This album is just so powerfull and heavy, from the opening track OCEAN PLANET you know your in for one tech-death prog rollercoaster ride. Their are also some cool instrumental 'chill out' parts througout the album like UNICORN and FROM MARS that only make the heavier tracks seem all the more heavy and awsome, other highlights for me include the epic WHERE DRAGONS FALL, THE HEAVIEST MATTER OF THE UNIVERSE, WORLD TO COME and the final track GLOBAL WARMING with its complex time signatures and awsome hypnotic tapping riff. This is a must buy for fans of Tool, Mushuggah or any fans of metal really, of course its not completly perfect but the good makes up for the bad points, none of which are really worth mentioning as they are few and rare, but id say that this is about as close to perfect Gojira could possibly make, a worthwhile buy :)

Ocean Planet - 10/10 Backbone - 10/10 From the Sky - 10/10 Unicorn - 9/10 Where Dragons Fall - 10/10 The Heaviest Matter of the Universe - 10/10 Flying Whales - 8/10 In the Wilderness - 8/10 World to Come - 10/10 From Mars - 9/10 To Sirius - 8/10 Global Warming - 10/10

MY CONCLUSION? as i said this maybe the closest thing to perfect you may ever get from this band, check it out, you wont be dissipointed.
