3 stars Ocean Architecture is a young prog metal band with one album released so far in 20012 named Animus. Well, if the instrumental section are quite great, even excellent in some parts, the voice of Parker Deal is absolutly horrible at best, but only in the rougher aproach. I mean I like the clean vocals he offered that goes very well in this prog metal context but when the voice turning is that metal core aproach with screams and all or what the hell is, man, I begun to lose my patience fast, and I mean, damn that ruins everything around. Long album with quite complicated moves, nice guitar and keyboards specially arrangements, the sound is little flat overall, but ok in the end. Metatheory beggins well well played prog metal, but the next tune is a total waste The Last Stand - 8 min of forgettable music, the rest of the tracks are ok, let's say, I really like the instrumental parts, if were without voice this Animus album were much much better rated from me, but the screaming voice is forgettable at best. Max 3 stars.
