5 stars Very interesting piece of art.

It is a blend of twisted guitar leads followed by basic and constantly changing urban-like rhythm guitar and drums. It is violent and features growling voices - lets call it growling, eventhough it sounds like a choking cat - accompanied by some brutal and unreasonable screaming parts, not only from the vocalist but also from a ladie. Somewhat electronic, it has too its share of cynical calmness, and disturbing monologues. The twenty-seventh track is unique in the whole album: it's ten times longer than the other "songlets"; features virtuous jazz-like guitar and saxophone solos, intertwined with bass and vocals. However, this is far from describing what this album has to offer. It is much more than that. It's a different musical experience, and has been wisely labeled as experimental. I'd say that it is very rich in a matter of rhythm, and rich on psychedelic effects, clearly marked by a fusion of several genres, including jazz. Meshuggah's mark is evident, aswell; after all, it's a project by their guitarrist. But this is not enough... If you like metal and you're willing to evolve into more complex ways (aside: other than the latest craps from used-to-be-awesome prog metal bands), I definately recomend you to take a "listen" to this one. ;)

And, hey, there's much more like this to explore here in ProgArchives! :-D
