And so began Devin Townsend’s solo career. Often hailed as a musical genius with no limits to his creativity, unbound by genres, yet still Metal through and through, the debut is a unique piece in Metal history. That is to say – in 1997, absolutely nothing sounded like this, and it’s not dated one bit. Eclectic, modern, catchy, and willing to throw all ideals of what Metal should be out the window in order to craft whatever the hell he wants it to be.

But, is the album good? It’s certainly good, but is it that good? I don’t think so. Most songs are overlong, lacking any strong musical hooks, and meandering in dense atmosphere that isn’t really sure what it wants to be. Many people will call this melancholic or ethereal; I hear no such thing. The closing song is a fantastic example of the heartfelt melancholy Devin is capable of – nowhere else on the album do I really feel any significant melancholy. Similarly, the first half of Bastard is built on an incredible riff, one of those that are so good you don’t mind hearing it over and over for 5 minutes. Despite that, I can’t recall another riff on the album. Nothing else really captured me.

The album does a great job of displaying Devin’s genius through moments and pieces, highlights that prove his potential.

매우 산뜻하고 몽환적인 느낌을 선사하는 Devin Townsend의 앨범. 곡의 편차가 매우 심해서 필러들이 킬링 트랙만큼 명확하게 눈에 띈다. 끝까지는 아니더라도 첫 세 곡인 Seventh Wave, Life, Night 까지는 꼭 들어보자 *그리고 이 글을 발견한 수정권한을 갖고계신 분은 트랙리스트 수정 부탁드립니다. Hide Nowhere와 3 A.M. 사이에 Sister 들어가야합니다

이것도 개명작. 이런 앨범은 처음부터 끝까지 들어줘야 예의지.

신디같은 기타?? 소리가 너무 좋다. 잔잔하나 정적이지는 아니하다. 바다같은 음악

처음들은 데빈의 앨범. 곡들마다 편차가 좀 커보이는게 아쉬웠다 2번트랙 추천
