5 stars Dredg ? 'El Cielo' 5 stars 'Art rock'

Easily in my top 10 albums or higher, but not my favorite due to personal taste, but I will hesitate to call the THE PERFECT album. It contains everything an omnipotent album should have, excellent flow, beautiful concept, emotion, power and exotic instrumentation. The album is layered with beautiful melodies and at times just soothing soundscapes. The vocals would have to be a highlight as they are one of the most peaceful and pleasant voices you can hear (like Jon Anderson). At times the album has some heavy breakouts that just can really floor you. A fine example would be 'Whoa is Me' which has goes from the heaviest part in the album to some of the most depressing lyrics. Then you have more of the interesting stuff here, chants, bells, slide guitar and the like.

My highest recommendation on this site. One of the most beautiful albums ever recorded. A true piece of art.
