I haven't had time in months to really talk about albums on my end *which explains why my thread is buried, I need to find a day to get back on that*

Casualties Of Cool is a damn good album and Flight may be one of the finest riffs he has ever written.

It's out!?!?! I guess I didn't notice because I didn't read any masturbatory articles on Metalsucks.

And your description confuses me. I LIKED Epicloud but I HATED Ki. And doesn't the lady who sang on a lot of Ki sing lead on a lot of this album?

There was a time when I gushed over anything Devin Townsend. But not so much for the last five years.

I tried to listen it to yesterday and I fucking hated the first 3 songs so much that I had to shut it off. Not my bag at all.

If you hated Ki you're probably gonna hate Casualties of Cool. You might even hate it more than Ki if your problem with Ki was the lack of of heaviness.

I was also huge Devin Townsend fanboy a couple of years ago. I'm still a big fan of the guy's body of work but I've calmed down quite a bit.

This, just recently checked her new album out and holy crap.

New Mayhem is outstanding as well might be their best work since Grand Declaration of War.

VHOL II is being tracked right now and set for a spring 2015 release.

It wasn't the lack of heaviness as it was the lack of decent songs. And like we were going on a few pages back with Opeth; people are splooging all over Devins stuff when I feel it's at its weakest. How are albums like Ki and Deconstruction so lauded when albums like Synchestra and Accelerated Evolution are forgotten? I remember listening to his cover of New York, New York a few years ago and the comments on the soundcloud or whatever it was (that audio program where people put their comments under certain portions of songs) were jizzing all over it. And I was like, "guys, this is one of the worst pieces of garbage I've heard in my life. It's a fucking unlistenable mess. Have you even heard of City?"

I think Ghost could've been the best part of the four album series if it wasn't so long.
