Oh and I did an update on the discography post.
Ocean Machine was a very enjoyable album to listen to. Becoming a bigger fan of Devin's work each time I hear an album of his.
I loved this years Epicloud album too.
Oh, where do I start.
This guy, man. To me, this bald nerd from Canada who looks like Beaker from The Muppets is the epitome of artistic freedom. He's the Frank Zappa of Metal, & does whatever he wants musically & creatively, no matter how depraved, manic, or soft. For me, there is no greater singular artist in all of music. No matter what I'm in the mood for, he's done something in that style.
It's so hard to pick a favorite, but for me it's a toss up between Ziltoid & Ki.
Getting into the Addicted album at the moment. Sounds really cool with an interesting alternative yet very proggy edge to the music. But I did pick up some other Devin albums too that were just amazing.
Terria has some of his best work on it.
Universe in a Ball from Addicted
I have sporadically attempted to listen to DT (solo), DTB and DTP and have yet to find a song that I can even listen to from start to finish. Project has some decent music in spots but the vocals I've heard are annoying. The solo stuff and the DTB stuff that I have heard sounds like really bad pop music mixed with I dunno what to just barely get it out of the pop realm.
Sorry, not trolling by any means, just thinking out loud. I just don't get the draw.
BTW: he should keep his head shaved, because with that long, stringy, nasty looking hair ... he is one ugly muthafuggah
Have to disagree about it sounding like bad pop music. lol
Some of the guitar is the ~only~ thing that would keep many songs from being full-on pop. Pretty much everything I have heard off of Terria is extremely poppish. I certainly wouldn't ever classify this stuff as "prog", but that's just me.
To each their own. I personally consider a fair chunk of his material to be prog but with other influences in there.
New Devin project Casualties of Cool.....it's pretty cool
