4 stars If you enjoy the mellow side of Devin Townsend from his extensive catalog, you cannot go wrong with this release. It is a magical release consisting of 15 tracks, 28 if you get the Deluxe version. The tracks blend together, and not all of them have vocals. It is a very atmospheric sounding album with a slight infusion of blues. With all that said, it does contain some of Devin's mad genius in the track Deathscope for example. Although it is atmospheric, there is nothing about it that is boring. There are layers and layers of music and sound effects that keep you guessing on first listen. This will definitely be a release to listen to through headphones, and you can pick up new things each time. Ché Aimee Dorval deserves credit for some amazing vocals and harmonies. Her performance is flawless. The two of them sound like they were meant to do this album together, and it works in every imaginable way. If you enjoy Devin Townsend or progressive music, you will find something to like in this release. Expect to be entertained in an aural circus.
