04:37 - Apothecary I'll still always prefer SYL over Devin solo work, but that's more of a personal thing than anything else, as City and Alien were both huge stress relievers that helped me through a lot of shit in middle and high school
04:24 - ScreamingSteelUS Deconstruction took a long time to grow on me. It was the first Devy album I ever heard and I'm still somewhat overwhelmed by the sheer density of it, but I've grown to love most of the album now.

Before we begin, take a look at that cover art! If you don't already own the album, I suggest going on Google and take a gander for yourself. The artwork is a perfect reflection of the music itself; a broad look shows some attention grabbing colours that pull you in to notice the fine detail. The music similarly has great, heavy, driving riffs, interlaced with some fine, detailed musicianship.
