4 stars The best album, if you don't count "I", released by this engaging band. This isn't math rock, it's math metal. And this isn't necessarily metal. Its just extremely heavy. There is a lack of emotion in all of the tracks. It's a soulless, chaotic mess, but it works wonderfully.

There isn't any technical showcasing, in the sense that you won't hear 20 million solos that is often the crutch of the prog metal genre, but the music is very technical. Haake once again proves that he is one of the best drummers out there today. For those who think this music all sounds the same, its likely becuase you only gave it one spun, and don't understand all the intricacies involved, as is with almost every Prog Album. Maybe they arent obvious at first, but they are definitely there.

Expect what the title says, complete chaos. An excellent album, but don't expect ot be relaxed by it.
