3 stars Animals as Leaders - Animals as Leaders

This instrumental prog metal album by guitar master thingy thingy, sounds a little like a collision between jeff beck and jeff loomis. Animals as Leaders presents a unique musical recipe, a fusion of beauty and the beast that challenges the listener's brain with its mix of delicacy and aggression. The use of an 8 string guitar, in particular, allows thingy thingy to create his own sonic feel, an aural gastronomy reminiscent, in a slightly odd way, of Frederik Thordendal or Cynic, even in the quieter passages.

Sure, I'm not the world's greatest fan of solely instrumental albums, my interest lying largely in lyricism and poetry. But I think Animals as Leaders does more than enough to hold the attention of the listener, touching a variety of musical bases in the process. It works well as a background to other activities, and as an entity in its own right.

Ultimately, however, this is non-essential, a charming and lesser-known curio that will very happily augment any already well-formed musical collection, but not, I feel, one that all proggers (or metalheads) should rush out to acquire as their very next purchase.

3/5
