Artist: The Devin Townsend Band
Original Album: Synchestra
It's pretty transparent that I only got this album a week-and-a-bit ago since my playcount for it has rocketed. This track features a hoe-down section and a guest solo from Steve Vai, elevating it to be my favourite on the album. Devin's multi-layered vocals (and I know it's not really accurate or original to say he sings like an angel, but) sound kind of otherworldly, like a choir of twisted bi-polar angels descended from the skies and the instruments hit some soothing but still metallic grooves before Vai unleashes one of his more exotic solos that fits surprisingly well with the music but sounds very reminiscent of a couple of his recent tracks Lotus Feet and Freak Show Excess.
This track is best listened to preceded by Hypergeek, which, in turn, is best listened to preceded by opening track Let It Roll as there isn't really much…
