Gojira manage to give us something new while giving us that old familiar sound we are used to. Some things work and some don’t, but props to them for trying to develop their sound. Songs like Amazonia showcase use of indigenous Brazilian instruments in the mix which is a nice mix up from the regular guitars and drums we always hear. However, it’s not in these new sounding songs that Gojira best capture the listener. It’s songs like Grind, Into the Storm, the Sphinx, and Born ... read more

I’m just giving it the original rating I gave fearless. This is a great remake tbh. Taylor sounds like a better singer with better technique, but pays for it by losing some of the youthful spunk she had in her delivery when she was 18, mainly because she’s so far removed from the situations that she sang about back then.

The greatest guitarist to ever live. Just a genius. Perpetual burn is a quintessential shred guitar listen. Becker proves he isn’t just a one trick pony that can go fast.

Hell yes! Love me some Haken. Some very sensible metal with shades of tool, djent, prog, and even some metalcore. Honestly love it. The vocals as always shine through and the instrumental work is technically superb. Might have to pick up the guitar and learn some of this stuff!. Love the incorporation of the Fibonacci sequence in Invasion as well, having heard Tool do it before too. I cant praise this album enough. Just very good!

Gotta say, I really enjoyed the riffage and instrumental work in this album in general. Still not a huge fan of this new trend in metalcore with clippy drums/guitars. I don’t know if the inspiration is coming from the loudness wars of the 2000s or the sludge metal sound but I’m not the biggest fan. However I cant deny that it’s an effective tool to convey uncontrolled aggression. Either way, the songwriting is brilliant and shines through despite the production issues.

About

I usually rate every track out of 10 and derive the avg to get an album rating based on my criteria. I tend to review music I like most of the time.

Legend:
0-29: TERRIBLE: No reason to come back to any of the tracks on the project.
30-49: BAD: maybe one or two redeemable tracks
50-59: OK: the album is hit and miss.
60-79: GOOD
80-89: GREAT
90+- MASTERPIECE/
