my favorite Townsend godsends
Feels like the movement of the earth, ponderous yet graceful, or something pretentious like that.

Just about the angriest album I have ever heard. All Hail the New Flesh provides the most satisfying therapeutic relief.
Ocean Machine: Biomech
this and City were released the same year. Bi-polarity is the only explanation as to how he could have maintained two separate, polar frames of mind while recording these.
The polka shit is hilarious. Besides that, this is beautiful. The first two songs are probably my favorite. Devy being acoustic > sex
|5||Devin Townsend Project|
Catchiest. album. ever. well, probably not, but it comes very close at times. Again showcases his genius ability to mix two polar ideas together almost synchronously.

Not as purely raw and pathologically angry as City is, but Alien is probably SYL's most stylistically varied album. Also, very therapeutic, like any SYL record should be.
This is just a whole lot of fun, all the way through.
This was the last Devy album for me to check out, because it didn't seem as "interesting" as the others. Still a solid slab of quirky prog ridiculousness X4

Mellowww... which is okay, I guess. I'm used to Devy being a heavy mo'fo though :

The New Black
SYL for n00bies. Devin soloing is cool to hear, I guess. A little off, considering he's expressed a dislike for shred guitar. It seems like he doesn't enjoy what he's putting down on here at times. Still, catchy as fuck.
