Ziltoid wants some coffee! And the best one please! This strange alien, fan of coffee, who comes from the deepest part of the universe to conquer our beautiful Earth, is actually born in the disturbed mind of the genius Canadian musician, Devin Townsend. This project album is probably his crazier one something that you have never listen to before this day and for sure if you like the work of Devin with his own band or with Strapping Young Lad you'll just love "Ziltoid The Omniscient". We're just in front of a pure galactic masterpiece.

Considering Devin Townsend's past works, this one is not exactly a surprise. But what really stands out of this concept album is nothing more than this crazy man's peronality. Every rhythm and sound in this album has a "Devin Townsend" seal on it. While listening to it, you feel like you're actually getting into his eccentric brain. That's how this magnificent musician welcomes you. Giving you generously a part of his personality.

It's a goofy and loony concept but once you're able to see through the humor you'll be amazed how deep this album actually is.

Perhaps the goofiest concept for an album ever, this is far from DT's best work. However, it still has a good collection of different styles and moods.

How come this album is so good?

Progressive has never been so much fun.

This is the Devin album I listen to when I want some fun to go with my metal. Sometimes I like to have fun.
I am not nor have I ever been a musician or a member of a one-man band, especially a band that has a name that starts with "D".

This was a very very painful listen. I tried a few times and even though I don't mind the concept, the music is plain horrible. I guess Devin's work is not something for my taste, I rarely enjoy anything he produces.
