5 stars T's releases are always ambitious and of very high quality, but Solipsystemology succeeds on even more levels than his past work.

The gentle melodic falsettos and the emotional walls of sound segue together seamlessly. There is a deeper melancholy to this release, I haven't delved into the lyrics as yet, letting them build their own story on repeat listens, but I know there is a deeper personal story behind them to discover. In terms of performance, I have always thought T's Bowie-esque vocals, diverse piano, proggy keyboards, jazzy drumming, thundering bass and rhythm guitar work are excellent, but his lead guitar work didn't always meet my (excessively) high standards, with them being a bit too samey. I'm glad to say that this album contains excellent variation, more attack, feel and phrasing (the notes that aren't played).

I'm still amazed that all this comes from one mind and body. The layers of the soundscape, diversity of instrument sounds, changes in delivery styles and sheer melody weaved in and out of the at times disparate cacophony all combine to create a work that is his best yet, perhaps a masterpiece. I can't see why not.
