The "Fossil Genera" song is my favorite so far. I love it when they go all circus-music.
The album's full of energy, full of surprises, as much so as Colors
-- but the songs hold together better as songs. They feel more organic. Tracks on Colors
tend to feel cobbled together -- a collection of riffs in no particular order. Tracks on The Great Misdirect
feel like they grow and move of their own accord. They sweep you along. Really good stuff.
