4 stars (Original review from MMA)

Fetid, foul, how dare they hide there best beans from me.

This is a completely unserious album about a alien named Ziltoid, who claims he is omniscient, but I have my doubts on that. He comes to earth wanting earth's best cup of coffee. Black. This chooice of coffee turns out to be bad for the humans, as Ziltoid is not pleased with the taste, and consequently decides to attack earth.

The music that accompanies certain parts of the story are spot on, being very heavy to a much more calm sound. Ziltoidia Attaxxx!!! is something that would not be out of place on a SYL album, and songs like Hyperdrive are more Post metal sounding and much calmer, without pounding guitars, and hyper blasts off the drum machine.

Another super satisfying album from Mr. Townsend.

Sheavy | 4/5 |
