5 stars Another dredg masterpiece, Catch Without Arms deals with the idea that there is always something to balance another, like a Yin Yang in Asian culture. This can be easily shown by such lines as "Let the demons have their place, if so it's angels you'll create." This album is dredg's 3rd concept album, with the first 7 songs considered "perspective 1" and the last 5 "perspective 2". The band has nearly perfected its sound, which is nearly impossible to describe because dredg transcends many, many genres. Every sound on the album has been meticulously tweaked so that every single piece of the music is important to the overall sound. "Catch Without Arms" may sound somewhat mainstream to some people, but I think that it is merely the evolution of their sound and the fact that this album has a much more uplifting sound to it than "El Cielo". The colors of the sounds in this album are more oranges, yellows, and reds, while in "El Cielo" the colors of the sounds are much more blue. Some examples of excellent work in this album are the songs "Bug Eyes", "Sangreal" and "Matroshka". I recommend this album to anyone looking for a new progressive art rock band to listen to, as well as anyone looking for a revival of progressive sound in modern music. Dredg sounds like no other band and anyone who listens to any of their 3 incredible cds will be impressed by their originality, creativity, and talent.
