Prog Reviewer
4 stars Devin Townsend proves that prog metal isn't all about technical virtuosity and insane solo's (for those misguided few that are inclined to think that way) by producing an album that utilises the layering of sounds and electronic samples/soundscapes to create complex textures and an overall soundscape. That's not to say that the musicians are unskilled, they are very much competent players, and the solo's do find their way in to the music, they just tend to express themselves in different ways. The result is very powerful music, typified by the wall of sound and complex textures built around themes of nature, specifically Devine Townsend's home country of Canada. Though the album flows together as a whole, there are a few individual tracks that deserve special mention, namely Mountain, Earth Day and Tiny Tears which embody the best aspects of the album. Be warned though, there is a reason why Mr Townsend is known as Heavy Devy.
