I got a bonus CD as well. Himsa - Hail Horror.

Will administer Weightless to my car tomorrow on my way to this weekend's tournament, while wearing my new shirt, which looks totally awesome

Goes to Prosthetic, clicks "download" to buy the record and have it now.

Get's redirected to itunes. Closes window immediately. .... that.

I am now pissed. Especially seeing as listening to "Somnarium" at LA Weekly is suggesting I am going to like this.

Hey look out! It's an opinion! WTF?!?

at war with false noise records

I've been underwhelmed by a lot of what I've listened to from the new album but the big band-style section half way through To Lead You... is so fun!

I think the self titled is really just something to show off Tosin's skill (with help from Misha) and his wide range of virtuosity on the guitar. Weightless to me seems like a statement. For one it shows that all of them collaborate really well having a strong fusion influence mixed with some sic grooves. On top of that, I think the title says it all meaning that I think a lot of people thought that this album would not have as much pump and 'weight' to hit, but it's kicking my ass!!!

*Fav tracks;
Earth Departure
Do Not Go Gently
New Eden
Weightless

This is easily my number one album of 2011. From the first riff to the ending of David, pure bliss. I think the only track I could do without is Espera, which doesn't really do anything for me but, heh.

Cylindrical Sea is easily the stand out track on this album for me. The great Cynic-y vibe it has really brings me back.

Meh, I'm glad to hear Hyphens revisited, but I much prefer the original. I'm a little offended that Tosin only plays the main riff once.

Saints and Sinners was amazing. Got there late and missed TesseracT but just in time for Animals as Leaders. Tosin used his new LACS for the whole set. There set was mind-blowing. BTBAM was awesome as well.

I'm listening to this cd all day and night, a thousand times better than the first. But I'm missing something: Where is the "Javier-Reyes Song", he plays live?!



Where is that piece? It's sooooo beautiful! He played it also in the studio update videos. Was so looking forward to hear this on the album....

All this time I thought I was the only one that heard the Cynic-y nuances in both albums...

I listened to the album the first time and was mildly disappointed. At this point I'm all caught up in my expectations of what I think the album is supposed to sound like (s/t part 2). I listened again and I'm still not that impressed. I keep waiting for moments like that awesome break in "Thoroughly at Home" or the tapping lick in "CAFO".

I think it was the next day on my 3rd spin it really clicked. (And my Sennheiser 595s really helped) The new album is so amazing it hurts lol I may stop playing guitar for a while. I don't want to say its better or worse than the s/t or I'd feel like I'd be doing one or the other an injustice, they're in completely different leagues. My only complaint is that "Espera" should have been replaced with Javier's new instrumental piece, but it's still a cool interlude.

Favorite moments:
Odessa - solo
New Eden - clean part after the solo
TLYTAOQ - main riff
Weightless - Whole damn song

I figured out the "Odessa" solo and the riff before it and its very fun to play. Gives me a sense of accomplishment to say I can play something off Weightless hehe

Last thing: Not to step on anybody's toes here but for anyone worrying about running "Weightless" into the ground like myself, Red Seas Fire just released their mini album for free. Thought I'd share since I kind of stumbled across it on Nolly's youtube page about a week ago. It's good stuff!
