4 stars From the superb, 'Infinity' Devin is back with a full band (actually, he uses his cohorts in Strapping Young Lad), and has given us one of the most interesting albums I have heard for a while. It is an album of undisputed straight through the ears hard rock ? played at tremendous pace, which must be played at speaker melting volume to get the full effect. But, if you can manage that (thank heavens for car CD players), you will be richly rewarded. Devin has set himself up as some mad Canadian hard rock Phil Spector, and although this album is often brutal in the extreme it is also one of the best produced. The music is a solid slab of sound that has been mixed and moulded to some strange blueprint only Devin has seen. The first four or five times I played this I wasn't sure, but by the time it had totally burned itself into my psyche I could just about see what Devin is striving through.
