4.0 excellentFirstStrikeIsDeadly | June 22nd 14

The Outer Limits is Voivod's return to having a bit of an aggressive edge to their music. It's nowhere near as aggressive as their first three albums; Snake's still singing (His vocal performance is very strong, by the way), and I can only recall one brief fast/thrashy section off the top of my head. But just listening to the introduction to Fix My Heart, you know they were trying to be a bit more hard-edged. Whatever wider things you want to say about this album's aggressiveness or whatever don't really matter as much as the fact that this is another solid release from Voivod. Most of these songs are just pretty good, with Fix My Heart being the only real justification for considering rating this above 3.5. But then they're Jack Luminous, which kicks so much ass and is one of the greatest musical accomplishments in Voivod's long career. There are dark and atmospheric passages, more raw and aggressive passages, and seemingly gentle and serene passages...that soon become eerie, of course. Since the album has this song, as well as fantastic production, a ripping opener, and honestly lacks any truly "bad" tracks (just some boring moments), it's worthy of being considered a quality Voivod release.
