3 stars As can be expected by the name Quantum Sphere, this album is extremely technical, instrumental progressive metal, following in the vein of great bands like Planet X. This piece is extremely heavy and ridiculously rhythmically complex. The incorporation of jazz elements and spacey keyboards is quite pleasing, making Pyjama Boy more than "just a guitar album." However, as you can figure out after just a few seconds of listening, Quantum Sphere is all about the insanely technical riffing. This doesn't mean that the compositions aren't pleasing; all the opposite would be true. If you listen carefully you'll notice that each piece actually is pretty unique and that it isn't just a bunch of guys who decided together to show off their jobs through a mind (and ear) bending blend of jazz fusion meets Meshuggah. If I had one small complaint, it's that the drum production makes the kit seem like it's programmed. I'm guessing that they used replacement on a lot of the drums to give them punchier sound, but who knows. In the end, you start getting into the compositions, like I did, and it won't really bother you at all. Overall, The Space Adventures of a Pyjama Boy is a very solid album for those of you who like technical fusion metal. Even though I'm not the biggest fan of that genre, I still found this album extremely enjoyable. You can has one too!
