I think hes an extremely intelligent, extremely talented dude whos trying to make sense of a senseless world through music. The fact that sometimes he does things I dont agree with or understand musically only endears him to me more, because its all so obviously genuine. Shows hes human. Just another dude trying to get his shit together. In many many ways he inspires me and gives me hope. Thanks for posting the video!
Gotta remember, we're talking about a guy who PURPOSELY went off his medication to make an album.

I think one of the best things about his music is that you can't really tell if there even IS a meaning or not.

Mountain is about his dog dieing. Wouldn't know that based off lyrical content. Earth Day is supposedly about nothing at all.

I think its selfish to project what you want on an artist. Devy just has to be as devy as possible, and he's learning that. It's a rollercoaster being a fan, thats what I love about true artists, they cannot just rehash stuff, always challenging themselves to see what they can/can't do.

It's the effort and the underlaying voice that I hear.

Of course he knows what he's doing; he's writing the music he wants to write

And I really like what I'm hearing in the video

I can understand wanting to get away from SYL, because it was just so one-dimensional, but I just don't get why he is so desparate to distance himself from the albums that have really stood out in his solo career, such as Infinity, Terria and Synchestra. A lot of people felt that Ki was missing that special something, that it wasn't a classic and wasn't Townsend at anywhere near his best. If he is still angry and still has the musical ability then he still has the potential to do something awesome, but this concept of releasing 3 dire albums and one potentially decent album really blows.
I don't think he is really lost, he's explained it many times. he writes the music which comes into his head. As far as I know he doesn't sit down and write songs as such, he puts the things on paper which he has floating around in his mind.
Deconstruction was supposed to be a purge, just as Ki and Addicted (which has already been recorded) were. It was going to be a ridiculously heavy album, all balls out and mental. But it didn't turn out that way, it turned more into a heavier Ziltoid thing, with less (or even no) humour.
I think he was trying to please some people with the Deconstruction idea, but he realised he doesn't have to and wants to focus on what he really wants to do.

as for Ki, I really like most of it.

I think some people are missing what it means to play from the heart. It's not play to an audience (expectation-wise), it's not to play to your abilities (technicality-wise), it's not to play to your strengths (writing-wise)... its playing from your heart.

Also... Ki kicked ass. It'll probably go down as underrated like Physicist because people had the wrong expectations from a guy who's never treadled a straight path.

As much as I enjoyed Ki... I'm really looking forward to hearing something slightly heavier and catchier from Devin. Can't wait.

Wonder what the meaning behind that cover is... definitely different and interesting.

Gah... That was horrible. That's my favorite song on the album and I like the kind of sad and mellow way Devin sings it, but she's singing it all bubbly and energized like power pop. There is, of course, personal taste, but the vocals alone completely ruined it for me.

I wonder which one 'Nibz' is, I'm guessing 'The Way Home'...

here's a clip for those who ain't seen it.


What happened to Jeff? Funny how he dropped off the radar now that the entire Western world disagrees with his right wing bullshit.

as already said, annie is singing hyperdrive. I really look forward to seeing what he has done with it. Knowing Dev it might just be a re-hash of some of the lyrics.
I doubt he would let her sing it all happy and bubbly though

that's from Ziltoid, long before Ki. And we get that you didn't like Ki, but lots of people did. Aside from that, Ki has plenty of energy. Could be you only listened to the first song, as you obviously did not buy the album

Oh damn, my hopes have been dashed.

And actually I purchased Ki the day it hit the shelves here in the UK, though I might aswell have not bothered. "Trainfire" is the only good song on it, though "Ki" and "Quiet Riot" are ok. It's just such a flat, listless album, it doesnt bode well for Dev's future output.
