5 stars A new sensitive experience!

I must admit the opening track doesn't surprised me too much, but the rest of the tracks are all masterpieces in his self essence. Then you've got 'Jambi' a heavier track, with much tribal influences, great rythmic parts, the percussion here and there ignites your spitir and body. Although it makes me remember of the old Tool era (Undertow-Aenima), but obviously, with a big evolution of their art and style. But there's more and there're better coming... Now 'Wings For Marie (Part 1)' is a psychedelic, slow piece that makes you trip to distant lands, maybe to another dimension, then, when you're on the top of your senses, it explodes in heavy guitars, like a sudden volcano eruption, and then it just return to tranquility and it passes into the next track... '10,000 Days (Wings Part 2) is one of my favourites, including lyrics, the phrase "Fetch me the spirit, the son, and the father. Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended" has been sealed in my mind. In the best pink floyd's style, this piece brings a misterious atmosphere that goes growing with as the seconds pass till you wanna throw your hands up to the sky and scream. And not to mention the great job of Danny on his only own drumming hard to describe style. And it finishes in the same way that 'Wings For Marie (Part 1)' What to say about the next track?? I love it! It sounds too 70's, it brings Led Zeppelin to my head, Justin bass playing really shines on this one!! Very difficult rithmycs at some parts. A very much rock oriented song in all possible ways. Now a break up with some king of tribal conjuring, more specifically 'Lipan Conjuring', a tribe of apaches that lived in texas. Lipan is a word that means "Warriors of the mountains". I think it's great they put them here in this little bridge track. Then another king of passage called 'Lost Keys', a song that keeps you in trance during its 3 minutes and 48 seconds. It has some background voices that penetrates straight to your brain. The next one is a mystic 11 minutes lenght track, that have some boring and some amazing parts, this is not one of my favourites, but it still contains some excellent moments to remember, maybe also some simillar to lateralus moments. Intension, another psychedelic piece, with a peacefully atmosphere, it surprised me with the electronic drumming, I think that was a great idea. Also has some pink floyd things just like '10,000 Days (Wings Part 2)', but focused in another direction. Well, now, the last song because 'Viginti Tres' is the ending of the album and it's not a song. So what a better way to close an album made full of masterpieces, 'Right In Two' is NO DOUBT one of my favourite tracks!! What a beautifull song, it shines for itself, in my mind, it leads you slowly by a kind of river, and then tere comes the oriental or maybe tribal drumming (I don't know how to describe 'em at the moment) on the middle and then the guitars irruption, this song is probably one of their best songs ever!! The top of composition!.

There's no doubt of his talent as musicians and composers, and they really evolution album by album. This album is their top by now! But Lateralus was it too in 2001!

You don't have to miss this masterpiece!!

About the title of the album, Could somebody here tell me what it talks about??
