More of this!

Devin Townsend was a little disappointed in his latest productions, but with Ki he showed a new facet that captivated me here at Addicted he conquers me whole again! Offering a "pop" vision but not sell the music industry Devy gets down on one of their best albums!

Since the beginning Addicted gets down. Devy not relinquish their growls, but like Ki he is more interested in clean vocals (and wow, how he sings beautifully!), And before he counted on the help of Ché Dorval on backing vocals here he has beside her Anneke van Giersbergen (Ayreon, the Gathering), that should be the biggest surprise I could have with this work! Seriously, I love her contributions, especially in Supercrush, Hyperdrive (which can be even better than its original version in Ziltoid) and Numbered. No wonder these are my favorite songs on the album, as well as Ih-Ah (well, the title is silly, but this is a wonderful opportunity to see Devy trying new ways). The album itself is extremely accessible - much more than their predecessors - but that at no time is a negative point. I have only praise for this work!

Lack bit for me to achieve Epicloud, the latest album of this genius, but I have to say that The Devin Townsend Project is the most consistent phase of this brilliant artist and so multifaceted. Toast me with anymore, Devy! 5 stars!
