STREAM DEVIN TOWNSEND’S EPIC EPICLOUD
Pig Destroyer’s Book Burner is easily my favorite album of the year and I don’t foresee anything changing that between now and December. That being said, Devin Townsend’s Epicloud might very well be my second favorite album of the year. And now you can stream the entire record.
The way I keep describing this album to people is, “It’s Devy’s White Album.” There’s a wide array of influences here, not all of them metal, and there isn’t really ever a moment when Townsend doesn’t pull it off more or less flawlessly. I even love the re-recording of “Kingdom,” and I’m generally dead set against re-recordings. But it sounds so great and works so perfectly within the context of Epicloud that I wouldn’t dare criticize it.
Listen here, then celebrate in the comments section below. Epicloud comes out Tuesday!!!!
