Devin Townsend- Empath
I am very conflicted on this one here folks. On one hand, the production is top notch, Townsends vocal performance is epic and great, the blend of genres such as gospel, disneyesque, progressive metal, and arena rock is interesting, and every song on it's own is very strong. There is a lot to love, but whenever I listen to this album, it never seems to click. I never fully enjoy the whole album, and I feel that it will grow on me like To Be Kind did. But right now, this is not something I will come back to. I don't think it's fair to give this album a proper rating as I feel myself having a much different opinion in the future but, fuck it.
