5 stars Toby Driver is probably the most innovative musician in the last decade or so, and this album is nothing but pure brilliance. This album is ethereal, it's gut-wrenching, it's painful, it's curious, it has individuality. After listening to the works of Toby Driver, I've decided that every metal band needs a horn player and a flutist. There is such incredible, unique beauty on this album, I don't even know where to begin. Leaving Your Body Map is just beautiful metal--there is such nice interplay between the various non-conventional instruments that I don't know how else to describe it. From angst-filled "Stones of October Sobbing" all the way through to the touching conclusion of "Monstrously Low Tide," this album is perfect. It takes progressive metal into an entirely new direction and shows there are still creative musician's in this genre.
