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.
"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.
Jagori Tanna...guitars, backing vocals
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.
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.Read more ›

This is IME's Sgt. Peppers.
Has to be my favorite IME album. S&F would be a close second, followed by BGO and Dig. Read more
There is no song on this CD that I don't like.
The best songs are definetly Choke, and Like the Sun but they're all great.
