5 stars This album proved Toby Driver is one of the most creative forces of my era(class of the 00's).

Take all preconceptions that you have about progressive music and throw them out the window. Toby Driver, like Garm/Trickster G. of Ulver, have more or less blown away all their competition and have created bands/projects which totally change the approach to music.

Relying on a more artistic feel, Maudlin of the Well have created music with no intention of ever selling out to the man. The music is free-flowing from passage to passage, has some of the most unexpected twists and turns, ranging from ambient post-rock experimentalism to full throttle aggression that reminds me of Meshuggah, though not nearly as technically oriented. The track Heaven and Weak makes that point fully.

If you believe music has gotten stale, that their is nothing new out there, I urge you to give Bath a try. It may not be to your tastes, but you will certainly not think all creativity has been dried up. Please also check Bryan's review, as he is a better writer than me on this subject.
