5 stars For as much great music as Devin Townsend has written over the years, he will be hard-pressed to ever top Terria, which is just a perfect metal album. Devin's goal was to write an introspective album, following the difficulties he had gone through in his personal life, and, boy, did he ever. Inspired on a drive across Canada, his homeland, he penned an album that actually sounds like it was written for a road trip. From the opening sound effects of Olives to the chaotic nature of Earth Day to the driving beat of Canada to the joy of Stagnant, this album hits on just about every emotion possible, and yet never manages to lose focus. it is heavy and often-chaotic, yet atmospheric and beautiful at the same time. I know it is a cliche to say, "this album must be listened to from start to finish," but it really does apply to this record. Crank this up on your next road trip, and prepare to enjoy one of the finest rides you'll ever experience. This album is a masterpiece in every way possible. 5 stars, easily.
