4 stars Well, that's strange. First I though that I won't like this album, but it seems that because I was curious enough to give it two more chances, I began to like it. First of all, this album shocks everyone with screaming vocals, but to say it in nutshell, what is hidden behind them gives this big value. Complex line of melody/rhythm/pace, whatever you call it.

Oh, by the way, this kind of music really needs proper headphones, or very good sound system, because otherwise you wouldn't catch all these little elements that makes this special, interesting and worth of listening. I suppose that fans of Death Prog Metal will like this, there are many similarities. But I'm slowly getting into this kind of music so this is becoming more and more interesting to enjoy it all.

There are tracks like Chinese Whispers or Parasitic Twins that are quite different, not using this kind of harsh sounding vocals, but instead being more of a dark Prog ballad than anything else.

4(+), basically it's very worth of attention, as long you as you overcome the vocals and fast pace. But in this case you don't like this kind of music, you won't be here, will you ? Maybe you will, who knows.

Cat get little bit tiresome after some time, as he keeps screaming and screaming. Yes, I'm aware that this is big part of this music, but don't listen to this too much in a row, that's all.

4 stars 'Option Paralysis' - The Dillinger Escape Plan (7/10)

Although undeniably a greatly talented group of musicians, the work of US mathcore band The Dillinger Escape Plan is a very love-it-or-hate-it entity. With chaotic and atypical chord structures, discordant noise and plenty of rhythmic experimentation to go around, the band certainly makes no effort to appeal to every listener. Throughout their career, they have polarized audiences with their unique blend of experimental metalcore, and 'Option Paralysis' will be no exception to this. Blending some of the noisiest and most frenetic guitar work you're likely to hear this year, with concise songwriting and a dynamic vocal delivery, my ears were slow to warm up to the Dillinger Escape Plan's latest work. But if anything, 'Option Paralysis' proves that whatever your first impression of this group may be, they certainly warrant an educated listen before passing final judgement.

The album takes very little time getting started. A few tranquil chords ring as a vanguard to 'Option Paralysis's very barrage of sound. Mathematically complex guitar experimentation bursts throughout under the unsettling and screechy screams of vocalist Greg Puciato. However, between the chaotic noisy intensity are quite a few melodic sections. While I'm still not a fan of the screams that the Dillinger Escape Plan employs, the clean vocals are quite skilled and effective, although they can sound a bit nasal in parts. Despite making a name for themselves based on their erratic and amelodic delivery, the more mellow sections of the album are very melodic and beautiful. Even in the more accessible parts of the album however is an experimental nature, which lends a challenging listening experience throughout.

While the genre of mathcore demands a very particular sort of listener, 'Option Paralysis' should be given a chance, even by those that do not historically care for the style much. With that being said however, this is certainly not an easy listen, and requires a few listens even just to become enjoyable. While not every experiment on 'Option Paralysis' works, and some of the erratic guitar work can get annoying after a while, I have certainly been impressed by this band's effort here. A very unique sounding project.

5 stars When I was getting into Between The Buried and Me around 2008/09, a lot of people came up suggesting I should listen to The Dillinger Escape Plan, so I got a few of their albums and really never got it. It all seemed too chaotic and insubstantial. And then hearing the release of this album, I decide ... (read more)

3 stars After loving their last album, Ire Works, I jumped at the chance to get their new album. And did it match up to their previous... No, and to be honest I was a little disapointed. This album wasn't bad, and it wasn't really good either. These guys became too enraptured in becoming weird a ... (read more)

4 stars It's already April and this is the only metal relase that cought my eye this year. It seems that the metal scene has less and less to offer with every year - right now Mastodon, DEP, Gojira, Intronaut and ISIS and among the last few bands that offer something worth listening so I'm thankful for ev ...

4 stars First off, I'd like to start by saying that I absolutely loved Ire Works and am not a huge fan of Miss Machine or Calculating Infinity. Basically, Option Paralysis is an album in somewhat the same flavor as Ire Works: it has some catchy/melodic songs, it has an epic track "Widower" which is the ... (read more)
