Of course, they loved the old songs too, but he's really got something going with his new material.
Devins fan base has grown a lot since the Ziltoid album, so I'm not surprised when post-Ziloid material gets a better reaction than older stuff. In 2001 when I told people that I loved Devin Townsends 'Terria' they looked at me like I was from Mars.
