EDITORS’ NOTES

The second of five planned albums for 2017, the Australians’ 10th studio album is one wild dystopian ride. It’s a three-chapter trip described by frontman Stu Mackenzie as “a visual, descriptive, bleak record” and aided by coolly detached narration from a cyborg named “Han-Tyumi” (an anagram for “Humanity”). The portentous themes aren’t necessarily matched by the music, however. The septet lay on way too much psychedelic metal fun for the mood to turn too bleak.

Not my favorite

This is more of an "experience."
As an album this thing is a monster but, even though the musicianship is definitely there, it's not a daily listener to me.

Spoken Word Much?

I have this album on vinyl and yes it's great! Just in my opinion there's too much Spoken word bits littered throughout the record. 4/5 stars though
