I met Devin and concluded that he rules...but I'm also tired of his music and can't stand his silly music moments any more. So hopefully this changes my openyon.

I HATED him live. He's so damn goofy and his music is too epic for a live atmosphere imo. His recordings are sick though

hey dumbshits talking shit... record something, hell, anything. Have the balls to create what you claim to know so well, for you must have perfected this outlet of expression in order to judge seriously talented musicians as to whether or not their songwriting meets your standards. Anyhow, Devin is awesome and i look forward to hearing this new release.

Whilst I'd love an SYL comeback I don't want Devy to end up in that mindset he was in during it, particularly during Alien when he went massively over the top by not taking his meds. Plus he always makes awesome stuff.

"I HATED him live. He's so damn goofy and his music is too epic for a live atmosphere imo."

Devin Townsend live was the best live show I've seen. It's so energetic and amazingly fun to be a part of.

Also; this should be good. Dev is just making music for himself now, I can appreciate that.

He has made it clear many times he doesn't want to do Strapping again and isn't that person anymore so there's really no point in whinging about it cause he's not going back.

Yeah DTP live was beyond fantastic, and one of the best live shows I've attended as well. I've been listening to nothing but Deconstruction as of late, so I'm certainly looking forward to this.

He said Epicloud was gonna be like 80's Hard Rock like Def Leppard or something, I'm stoked, I can't wait. I'm glad he's not sticking to the same sound.

DatsNotDaMetulz

I swear he's said it's gonna have a mix of all sorts of things he's done in the past, so some calmer stuff and some louder more extreme stuff. From what I'd gathered, something a bit like Noisescapes was gonna be before it got dropped from its label and ended and he decided to split the extreme (SYL) from the calm (Ocean Machine/solo).

Not liking some Devin Townsend makes us dicks apparently? Sorry for the opinons?

SYL is good and I love parts of Ocean Machine. And Addicted is amazing.

But his last few albums have just been more of the same. He's running out of ideas, musically.

I've been digging Ki so fucking much lately. Dev's mind and emotions come through on all the DTP records, but Ki especially I think. Now that his demons

"HAVE BEEN VANQUISHED, LET GO!!!
I'VE CONQUERED MY SOUL!
VANQUISHED…NOW GO!!!!
EXORCISE YOURSELF!"

it should be interesting to see what direction he goes in. This record will be a taste of the "new" Dev I think. Fucking stoked! Fuck you Stokes.

Sounds good. The choir at the beginning was...eh...but the music at the end kicked ass (that robotic voice was totally reminiscent of Ocean Machine). Should be awesome, more stoked for Casualties of Cool and Ghost 2 though..

Devin Townsend. Doomed to be hated by people who can't have fun, and people who get blindly angry when someone is prolific in their work.

lolwut. Ghost is completely different from Decon. Decon completely different from Addicted. Addicted
completely different from Ki. This statement makes no sense.

"those vocals are hilariously bad."

that was just a tongue-in-cheek intro, not the actual song's vox :-O

I don't know the gripe about HevyDevy sounding the same, all his albums of recent are pretty different from the last. I'm loving his stuff, he's making music that's in his head, and that's music he's never even thought of making before.
