5 stars Thinking plague's In Extermis is one of the most decisive albums in the Prog-Rock genre since the end of the 70s. The album is made of seven tracks, which are actually in some strange way a little melodic. Although the lyrics aren't great, it's not hard to understand that the important part in the album is the music, and the music is really good, made of a mixture between rock, jazz, modern classical music and avant- garde. It's hard to describe it but it's something like Magma meets Yes, when you can make similarities, most of the time they sound different from anything someone has heard of.

There are 4 things that make this album so unique and a must-listen to. The first one is the compositions, which are rich with layers and thought; each role of each instrument is bold, yet mixing with the music. The second one is the mixing, which is done perfectly. The third one is the playing by the musicians, which is played great. The last one is the singing, which adds a lot to the album.

Overall, this is maybe the best album to introduce someone to RIO, the album isn't too hard, but still shows what so great about the RIO.

5 out of 5
