So silvvervrag, do you still think the intro of Selkies is a punk riff?

You misspelt The Dillinger Escape Plan album on your recommendations. It's "Calculating Infinity", not Infinite.

Instrumental Colors, pl0x.

That way my paganistic Tommy-haters can appreciate true music.

this album lacks Backwards Marathon, and is therefore useless.

An instrumental Backwards Marathon lacks sex vocals, and therefore is useless.

Sometimes I think I hear Tommy's voice on this. Guess I'm just used to it being there. Very entertaining listen nonetheless

They kept Laser Speed and Breathe yet they took out Roboturner and Backwards Marathon? That's the only negative for this instrumental album for me.

instrumental isn't a bad choice for this band. They should just fire the vocalist

Is this re-recorded or did they just remove the vocals?

Just removed the vocals. They can take off the vocal layers and tracks so essentially it's like they were never recorded.

Not sure if this was said already but... saying "They could have ended it with a heavy-hitting ten minute song, which is what they typical do (see “Colors” and “The Silent Circus”)." is inaccurate for a number of reasons...

1. They didn't write Colors until after this...so saying they should have "went out on a bang" because they usually did would have to reference albums they already had released.
2. The Silent Circus ends with a 5 minute song, which leads to dead air for like 8 minutes and a joke song (albeit a good one) that lasts for 3 minutes or so... it doesn't end in a 10 minute epic.
3. You could have mentioned the self titled, as it is the only one with a song that truly breaks the 9 minute mark. But then it still wasn't a usual thing for them at that point...
4. As I said before, it wasn't until a later album that they started getting really progressive and ending in epic moments. (White Walls, Swim to the Moon, Lunar Wilderness) but I still wouldn't call it a usual thing yet. (Even if they are proving to continue doing this)

That's just my comment on a very insignificant part of your review...lol. Not trying to be offensive, but I felt like some of that required some clearing up.
