4 stars Between The Buried And Me - Colors II

Between The Buried And Me did it again. This time in a much more old and risky fashion, by making the record a continuation of their most praised album, Colors. In their last albums, Between The Buried And Me seemed to have softened in terms of heaviness, less riff-packed tracks and more melodic approaches, all of this of course while maintaining their variate and fast-paced progressive metal.

In this record, however, the band returns to its brutally complex progressive metal from their Alaska/Colors years. The manic time signatures, breaks and song structures from the first part are encapsulated in a very sophisticated manner. Musicianship is currently some of the best in progressive metal without a doubt. And the flow that the record achieves with its interludes makes it a somewhat easy listen.

Probably their best Parallax II. Will give it five stars.
