This is definitely a difficult album to rate. At some points I'm banging my head to one of the best riffs I've heard in years; at others I am cringing at the repetition and monotony that opponents of the band justifiably complain about. Overall, the highs don't outnumber the lows and the album turns out to be more of a chore than some of their other albums. 2.9/5
Gojira's transitional record that fails in capturing what made either sound great. From a songwriting perspective, the album is an absolute mess. Sections will repeat themselves endlessly. I will initially wait it out to get to that cool groove I like, but it's not worth listening to the album as a whole when it is difficult to stomach some of the tracks at all.
Great album, a bit more aggressive than From Mars to Sirius. Personally I prefer the band's first two albums to the third, as they don't seem to drag the song out like From Mars could do from time to time. A much more lively and energetic release from this band. Don't get me wrong, I love everything thing this band has released, I just like this one a bit better.
