4 stars By your command, mighty Ziltoid.

I can't compare this album to his other works, because this album is the best of Strapping Young Lad mixed with the best of Devin Townsend solo albums, and, for me, this is the best Devin Townsend album, heavy riffs, experimental riffs, melodic vocals, harsh vocals, extreme vocals, fun lyrics, the perfect album to show Devy to your friends.

The concept of the album may look weird at first, but when you actually listen to it, you will realize that is a lot of fun (An alien coming from across the Omniverse just to get a cup of coffee?), but not all of is funny, the lyrics of some of the tracks can be serious and deep, indeed .

The only things I don't like about this album are that some of the spoken parts (Ziltoid and the commander) are too fast and this makes some parts (like the end of Solar Winds) to drag on for too long.
