Without a doubt, Gojira is one of those bands that are being talked about a lot in the metal community these days and with good reason. The Frenchmen are taking part in progressively higher profile tours and their albums are achieving respectable notoriety all over the world, something that is made all the more impressive by the fact that the band's music is far from commercial sounding or easy to digest. The Way Of All Flesh, Gojira's latest album is supposed to be the next step in the band's ascent into super-stardom and I can say with a degree of certainty that it will serve this purpose successfully, even if it is not an entirely flawless release.

Rating: 9 This album changed my perception of metal - for the better.

In my inmost being I was beginning to run dry on music to feed my power-hungry, musical soul....and then this came along.

Gojira have something that is quintessential metal: POWER. Speed and flashiness are cool traits to have in metal but power is the key. There are many passages in this album that are packed with power. 'The Art of Dying' is an amazing song. Great album.

  Great music, Great tracks throughout except for maybe Yama's Messengers which is a bit dull in my opinion. Fantastic album regardless. Wolf Down The Earth is one of my all-time favorite metal tracks, dat brige <3

  Randy Blythe does a damn good job on Adoration For None.

Rating: 9 Their albums began losing their identity starting with this one. Occasionally there can be some boring riffs, but most of the album is great.

They've olny released one since, don't you think that is a pretty rash conclusion at this point?

Rating: 9 I've consistently been flitting in between this and "From Mars..." to determine which is better, and more to the point which is my favourite Gojira album, and at the moment my mind is sort of swaying to the former record. But that's very slight indeed, because a lot of the moments on The Way of all Flesh are at least on par with, if not sometimes better than its predecessor. It's just that at this point in time, From Mars... to me is slightly more consistent by a song or two. But there's no real difference, as both albums are near flawless in my book. I love that spiritual ambient note which is recurrent as the intro/outro (sometimes halfway through as a backdrop to the instrumentation) to many of the songs here, and the crushing aggression of "Toxic Garbage Island" and the epic closing title track really impress me each and every time. My personal favourite is "All the Tears" however-that song, though one of the shortest on this album, is also the most concise for me.
