| ||Animals As Leaders The Joy of Motion|
You could call this a spectacular return to form after the disappointing "Weightless", but that would somewhat undersell this album. While the jazz has made a strong return, this isn't more of the same from their self-titled. The more rock-rooted drumming from "Weightless" returns, and the guitars draw inspiration from much broader ranges of funk, latin, and jazz, bearing more than a tinge of Javier Reyes solo project "Mestis". The overall result is an album much more loyal to their debut and yet fresh and unique in their discography - and likely their best release to date.
| ||Cynic Kindly Bent to Free Us||2.5|
| ||Gorguts Colored Sands||4.0|
| ||Savage Messiah Plague of Conscience||4.0|
| ||Haken The Mountain||5.0|
| ||The Reign Of Kindo Play With Fire|
Kindo no longer rules. All of the indie and prog in their unique blend of indie, jazz, prog, rand pop has been supplanted with funk and R&B, leaving an utterly typical jazz-pop record. Touches of brilliance make appearances, but only once or twice remain long enough to make a song that can stand up to their previous discography.
| ||After The Burial Wolves Within||4.0|
|LunaticSoul Hey man, could you point out the grammar mistakes in my review? I can't see them (I'm not mothertongue so that might be why)? http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/56631/After-the-Burial-This-Life-Is-All-We-Have/#comments|
|conesmoke haha do you feel robbed of an album due to the fact that aeon spokes 2nd album is the same as their first?|
|OllieS Your soundoff for Haggard's 'Awaking the Centuries' was insightful and beautifully written|
