4 stars Intronaut are known for employing the following formula: interject sludgy riffage with jammy, psychedelic passages. On "Fluid Existential Inversions" Intronaut perfects this formula. The riffs are standard Intronaut fair but they are given an extra measure of complexity thanks to a stellar drum performance. The psychedelic and jazzy passages are, at times, unspeakably beautiful. The lack of strong melody is, for me, a downside but perfectly understandable given Intronaut's emphasis on generating atmosphere.

This is an album that feels like it has an important message to relay though, at this stage, I'm not quite sure what that message is. If you are already an Intronaut fan, you will obviously love this album. If you are into challenging but ultimately inspiring music, you owe it to yourself to give this record a listen.
