time to get banned shit
wiz you are insane!
Hahahahaha I am but I feel Target Earth just nailed their sound in such a modern way.
Target Earth was such an amazingly pleasant surprise. Not that I expected a new Voivod album to be bad.
Haven't heard Phobos yet, but this review nicely explains its context with the rest of their discog, well done again, Voivod!

Album Rating: 2.5
I wasn't too keen on this on, much like the actual Phobos, which is an ugly looking moon.
I remember listening to this long time ago.. (when i lurked sputnik, like 2008 or 09?). Never liked this, but great review man.
Dimension Hatross and Nothingface is where this band truly shines.
Album Rating: 4.5
I really see why most people who like Voivod's prior work feel alienated to this album.
Phobos was my first sonic contact with this band, I listened to it at a friend's house when it was out. It wasn't a very careful listening session and back then I thought of the album as a pretty passable affair, due to two reasons. The first was that back in the mid '90s my extreme metal background -not just death and black metal, but noise, hardcore, nu metal and industrial- was under pretty much non-existent.
The second reason is that this album needs a lot of time to sink in, even for listeners with a good extreme metal background.
The more I branched out to different extreme metal ends and the more i listened to this album, the more i appreciated it.
fuck yea voivod reviewing vintage voiv, nice
Have you considered being a TAD biased toward this band, VOIVOD?
deimos was better
I never understood the lack of love for this record. It's amazing, and didn't need any growing time whatsoever to click. I'd actually consider it my favorite Voivod album - somehow it speaks to me in a manner that the more established "classic" recordings fail to. The harmony here is amazing, some of the chord shapes and instrumental interplay featured is out of this world.
fuck this album kicks ass why does it only have a 3.3
Digging: Autechre - Exai
