Devin Townsend Band – Synchestra (2006)

I don’t know why of all Devin’s albums this one is oft-forgotten except for the song Vampira (which really doesn’t fit the flow of the album at all). This has to be one of the best things he’s released in his career. Unlike a lot of his albums that lose a lot of steam towards the end this one actually starts out somewhat slow but then really picks up halfway during Mental Tan and gets better and better in one seamless forty minute section. Even though that last forty minutes is almost entirely instrumental it’s so well put together and thought out. Just one climax after another. It’s too bad the Devin Townsend Band was dissolved after two albums because they were two of his best albums.
