“The Dive,” starts off with one of those riffs. The sort that make you go “Oh shit, this is happening,” and what a start it is. It snakes through and brings the hammer down. “Fervor,” swaggers with the lines and produces some fascinating changes. “Go,” rocks the house down with the riffs back into full action. “A Human Nature,” is haunting and soulful, producing something interesting and direct.

“Island,” ventures this way and that, smashing down the trees with a snake eye. “North,” slowed down a monster that constructs something powerful. “Paramnesia,” another roller coaster. “Thinker’s Cave,” a brittle rocker.

The album is out now.
