Devy knows how to surprise me. After the excesses and follies of Ziltoid he shows elegantly restrained and steeped in new influences on Ki, an album that is a sort of "preview" of your Devin Townsend Project, and while part of it. With the support of musicians with little or no experience with metal, it offers a work at once challenging and innovative, one of his best yet.

What you hear here? A pleasant and eclectic mix of heavy metal, post-rock, ambient music and even a little blues-rock (or tell me that the first moments of Trainfire not sound like Devy wonderfully emulating the king Elvis Presley?). This album is proof that this wonderful artist is not classified in the category of Experimental / Post-Metal aimlessly. There are moments here where he gives his famous growls (Disruptr, Cat, Heaven Send, Trainfire), but fortunately they are far fewer than in their previous productions. Only your ambient music's albums, Devlab and Hummer, have less growls than Ki.

So, I must say that this album was a surprise. After being somewhat disappointed with the overrated Ziltoid this was a refreshing surprise. Five great stars to this masterpiece. Bring on more than Devy!
