I had my reservations of the vocals, but after several listens they fit perfectly within the scheme of things. This is an exceptional record, that brings in and ties together a bunch of different genres in a very compelling way. Yeah, they may abuse the light/heavy dynamic to the nth degree, but they're soooo good a doing it I'm giving the Contortionists a waiver. Brilliant.

Gave them a listen for the first time, with Oscillator. First I thought these guys sound like Messhuga. Listening the whole way through, I was impressed how they went from doom to soft and ambient.

Is it better than Exoplanet? [even if I know they won't have it in stores]

This is another excellent album by the Contortionists. The difference is it expands on the more atmospheric parts of Exoplanet, and has a lot more clean vocals, but when the deathcore/djent comes roaring in, it's just as hard hitting and adventurous. Right now it's really hard for me to say which one's better.

I guess starting with Exoplanet would be a better decision before hearing how it's expanded in the second.
