4 stars Positively intense and powerful music showing off DT's aggressive guitar, skills at production and mixing, and perhaps his most up- front vocal performance ever. Despite the overall excellent sound of the album, it lacks the unpredictability in songwriting of Devin's most popular releases, which might make it come across as deceptively simple; after all, there are some big hooks and sing-along melodies throughout this album-- which may actually make it the most accessible offering in DT's entire library. However, after a few careful listens it will be evident to fans that "Accelerated Evolution" has Townsend's mighty signature all over it, and there isn't anything simple going on here (scream along if you can!). I highly recommend "Accelerated Evolution" to those interested in exploring Devin Townsend's music for the first time-- it is easy to listen to and will more than likely hook you to this very talented musician's unique sound.
