5 stars So what's all the fuss about, huh? I'll tell you.

I decided to write my review of The Joy of Motion since it had no reviews thus far. I could have easily written the same review for each of the previous albums. They are all worth listening to. They are all a special and unique display of musical prowess, and part of that uniqueness is attributed to the fact Animals As Leaders is a one-man production!

This is one of those albums, one of those artists that are just a must listen. It helps if you are not averse to guitar based progressive metal. I happen to play the guitar so this repertoire is an added gem and treat for my ears!

The Joy of Motion might even be the strongest of their three albums. They are all not very different from each other but this really is not a bad thing at all. The music is just so pleasant to listen to. It's complex yet melodic. But yes, it is quite complex. I happen to love that.

It's an uncompromising display. If you like uncompromising qualities, you just might love Animals As Leaders.

All the fuss about this band is warranted!

Oh and I must add that's it's not all that common to hear a strictly instrumental based project either. That is another very strong point in this particular artist's favour.
