Masterpiece of alien, beefheartian metal. Influenced lots of great stuff but still sounds fresh and plain kicks ass. An obvious 10 if there ever was one.

It's right up my alley in the sense that it's metal that doesn't conform to one specific genre playbook. The music on this album reminds me of too many different other artists to count. Voivod one second, Death another, Arkona a moment later, etcetera. A lot of these moments, I don't even know what kind of metal to categorize this album as. This doesn't mean that the sound is incoherent. It very much isn't. There's a very confident sense of direction to this album. A lot of extreme metal compositions have a very disjointed feel, but the songs on this album have a real sense of flow. No disjointed, lazy compositions in sight.

Really good stuff.

"Clouded" is a bit dull compared to what comes just before and after. It's long and it feels long.

I'll never "get" this album, but I can't deny its importance to the genre so I'll score it high. Looks like, to nobody's surprise, this one is in without any trouble.

alright i voted 8 then. only because it's a great album that's slightly overrated and has it's fair share highs and lows, enough so that i would say it's not a perfect 10. it's like an 8.5 to be honest but my vote isn't going to change the outcome anyway so i just picked a number.
