I'm not a reviewer as such, so I'll just give you my story. I was a long-time IME fan, and stuck to my guns that they were as good as ever with Blue Green Orange. After waiting so long for a new album, I wasted no time buying the Quicksilver Meat Dream, just out of loyalty. I was immediately taken aback by how much heavier the sound was, how the Tannas and Bruce Gordon could still combine catchy and challenging, and how great Brian Byrne was vocally. Still, when I put the CD back in its case, my first words were, "I think I wasted my money on this". Maybe I was put off by the relative darkness of the album, especially compared to the feel-good vibe of Scenery And Fish. Maybe the increased progressiveness of a few of the songs was too much to handle. Maybe they were trying to be something they weren't.
Still, something compelled me to listen to it again. When I did, I noticed that IME really IS somewhere inside those tunes (maybe even all over them), and that, just as in albums past, repeated listenings made the songs catch on with me. The instrumentation and song craft blew my mind, and the vocals were always phenomenal, maybe the best on ANY IME record. This record is amazing! These songs are now firmly planted in my brain, and I wonder how I could've dismissed them in the first place. They have depth and feeling. They make a cohesive collection in which skipping tracks is not only unnecessary, but is cheating you as a listener. Maybe best of all, they rock in a way that should silence everyone who said IME "wussed out" with their last album. In short, these songs could make this the most underrated major-label album of the year. Buy it and see why.

No idea what took me SO long to finally get this album...I have every other IME album & knew a couple songs from this one but for some reason just never picked it up. At this point, Amazon was the only place I could find it, wasn't in any of the stores I went to. Anyway...it's awesome! With IME touring again, it's a good time to know every song ;)

...and to think that it took so long for me to sit down, listen and appreciate the gem that it is.

I read...

"The Quicksilver Meat Dream is the fourth album by the Canadian alternative rock band I Mother Earth, released by Universal on April 8, 2003. It is allegedly a concept album, though the details on the concept are left to the fans. The album retained the instrumental jams and cryptic lyrics of prior albums, but largely strayed from the band's psychedelic past. Instead, it offered a dark modern metal sound with industrial elements, and at times the band's greatest emphasis on progressive rock to date."

The band seems to have taken a Tool/Pink Floyd approach to the music on the album with great results. Such diversity in the subject matter(lyrics) as well as the songs themselves. The band seems so much more evolved, more progressive and definitely heavier. The songs gradually draw you in then explode in the middle with such force that you tend to catch your breath unknowingly. Once throttled, the music and bombastic arrangements won't let loose its grip on your consciousness.

Solid, well-written lyrics, backed by a great voice, soulful expressive melodies, rampaging guitars,a masterpiece of effects. This is headphone music to the highest power. Crank it up, doob, and sink slowly into your comfy chair.

Brian Byrne...vocals
Jagori Tanna...guitars, backing vocals
Bruce Gordon...bass
Christian Tanna...drums

This is their best since "Dig" their debut. Edwin is gone but Brian fills the shoes perfectly. A very underappreciated album. A must have for all serious progressive metal followers.

Following their stellar release Blue Green Orange (released 1999), fans of I Mother Earth were no doubt iffy about the future of the band as they counted the years passing by with no new album. The release of The Quicksilver Meat Dream has silenced these fears and replaced them with exclamations of pure optimism, for after listening to this album one can only see a bright future for the musical endeavours of a very underestimated band.
A marked change in musical direction from their previous albums, tQMD is a bold statement that gets in your face and settled into every corner of your body from the first strains of 0157:H7 to the mellow yearnings of Passenger. The band denies the album 'concept' status, although it is hard to not notice the organically influenced cover art alongside pulsing beats and a myriad of sounds strewn throughout the band's compositions. Indeed that is what they are, compositions - several of the tracks include soaring highs of pure energy followed by hypnotic melodies that make you follow them into uncharted territory. In addition to the large instrumental palette that the band paints in this outing, lead singer Brian Byrne's vocals have found their place in a band that one can feel is becoming tighter as the years go by (indeed, it has been 6 years since the energetic frontman joined the band). Dissonant, chaotic, powerful, describe the guitar pound that greets the listener on Choke. Byrne's vocals and guitarist Jag Tanna's guitars blend in beautiful melody in Hell & Malfunction. Drummer Christian Tanna and bassist Bruce Gordon add their significant abilities throughout the album, but nowhere is the synergy of I Mother Earth more in place than in the opus Meat Dreams: a veritable masterpiece of progressive composition.
