3 stars I'm on a Voivod kick lately, so I'm writing this review, and the review for the successor,"Target Earth," back to back. As others have noted, this is the 2nd Voivod album to be released after the untimely death of veteran guitar genius Denis D'Amour AKA Piggy. But nonetheless, his guitar work is still featured prominently on this album due to posthumous use of guitar tracks he had laid down prior to his death. Musically, this album is sort of a halfway return to proggy form for Voivod; it mostly sounds like a blend of Hatross era Voivod, earlier Clutch, and Queens of the Stone Age. As such, it may not be of interest to prog heads at large, but more open-minded Prog Metal fans, and, for sure, Voivod fans should be able to find a large chunk of this album to their liking. That being said, it is a mixed bag, with tracks like God Phones, Global Warning, and Morpheus being decently solid additions to the band's repertoire, and others, such as From the Cave and, ugh, Destroy After Reading, not so much. But as a fan of the classic Voivod era, there's enough of that unique, one-of-a-kind Voivod sound here to make me happy inside. Moreover, this album is a harbinger of good. things to come.
