3 stars After the successful Epicloud, Devin Townsend released his long awaited Ziltoid the Omniscient sequel with this double album!

The first CD Sky Blue is a follow-up of the style of Addicted! and Epicloud, but sadly not so good this time in terms in songwriting lacking true memorable songs. And worst of all, this album is predictable! And that's the true disappointment here.

Ziltoid 2 is better, mixing the furious and crazy humoristic metal of the first one with the more grandiloquent and pompous style of newer Devin's albums. And although the results are better than in Sky Blue, the album is waaaaay under the first Ziltoid one. The story is ridiculous and apart from a part of songs (Deathray, War Princess, Ziltoid Goes Home) this album is simply not catchy enough.

Best Tracks: Midnight Sun, Universal Flame, Silent Militia, War Princess, Deathray, Ziltoid Goes Home.

Conclusion: my less favorite Townsend album!

My rating: ***
