This review is from: Requiem of Time (Audio CD)
MONSTER album from these metal blasters from Sweden. For fans of Deep Purple, Dio, Ozzy, Maiden, etc.. nice clean vocals aligned with a very punchy metallic edge that pays some musical homage to the 'Gothenburg' metal melody masters who have influenced metal since the early 90s. High-level stuff.

Great melodies. This is the first Insomnium I have heard. Very clever use of all instruments. Some reviewers didn't like the production - I found it to be perfect. If you love old school metal and 70s rock, but in a progressive modern metal way, do not hesitate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible album!!, April 29 2009
This review is from: The Devil You Know (Audio CD)
This is an incredible album. The production is amazing, and it is impossible to believe that Iommi can still sound this good.. but he does. Dio's voice remains fabulous, and his vocal presence is still extremely strong and expressive. I saw him live last year (with Heaven and Hell), and he still has it. All members do, as Iommi, Butler, and Appice lay everyone to waste with class, power, and melody. This isn't a re-imagining of the past - it sounds fresh, new. Still it is undeniably Sabbath. Its uncompromising. AND OBLITERATINGLY HEAVY!! This is the real thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and beautiful, and very profound., May 17 2007
This review is from: Fear of a Blank Planet (Audio CD)
Another work of sheer and profound beauty and power. The focus is on dynamics within songs, and the production is mind-blowing and modern. Steve Wilson is a musical genius as a player, yet has all the studio savvy to go along with that. He is truly and unbelievable talent, and as a band Pocupine Tree are hard to beat in modern rock. Guitar playing, keyboards, and pianos are all propelled with conviction and grace, and the album has been produced at a very high level of professionalism. Vocals are excellent, and the bass player and drummer really keep things extra tight. Heavy and beautiful. The 17 minute track is a true centerpiece and is alone almost worth the price of the album. But it's all amazing, and all a very large step above the norm and the mundane.
