5.0 classic
Aaron Copland Appalachian Spring
Animals As Leaders The Joy of Motion
All the jazzy ambient goodness from the first album with the heaviness of the second. Nolly kills it on the bass, and Bulb's mastering and production went over fantastically. Tight, clean, sharp record with a vision.

Dir En Grey Dum Spiro Spero
Dark, disturbing, and chaotic as hell. If you thought UROBOROS was good, you'll love this. Diabolos is reminiscent of fan-favorite Vinushka, and Decayed Crow and Juuyoku really bring the frenzy. Some extremely proggy parts on here, and the entire band steps up their game; Shinya in particular has eye-popping drumwork in every song. If you're looking for milder music, search elsewhere, but for everyone else, this is your Album of the Year. Dir en grey responds to the darkness of the world and Japan's tragedy with an incredibly mature work.

Well done remakes that gives their older works their modern dark progressive/experimental metal edge without losing too much of the original hard rock edge. MACABRE is an absolute treat, and I find myself greatly enjoying THE FINAL. Production is sharp (same as UROBOROS' remastering & DUM SPIRO SPERO).

Consistently super solid. Bit more of the Blood Mountain feel, but keeps some of the Crack the Skye prog without getting too draggy or pretentious. Good stuff; this is great metal.

Everything wrong with Fortress was more or less fixed here, though it comes at a cost of consistency in favor of even more experimentation. Bass is more audible and prominent, and gets more classic Arif magic. Rody is sassier than ever, which you can definitely hear in his newly penned lyrics. Moe has some really impressive spot on drumming here, and of course, Tim and Luke have spotless guitars as usual. Incredible technique. Still some things they could touch up here and there, but Scurrilous is a great record.

Excellent musicianship as usual, and musicianship is up to another level, especially on Navene's part. Too much electronic influence though, and you can hear it for sure. Feels a tad uninspired a bit too often. Still an excellent spin, and they're improving on ~some~ of the mistakes from their first album. Look to taking the best parts of both and adding something new in their future albums.rEDIT: Production is garbage

It's not that bad. I don't mind the softer stuff, but 3 filler songs and some songs that are passable at best is not up to Cynic's usual standard. Needs a little more complexity in the music, I'd argue.
