Guest review by

Devin Townsend, the former prolific and extremely intense front man of the energetic Strapping Young Lad, and the creative mastermind behind such albums such as Ocean Machine: Biomech, Infinity, Terria, and Ziltoid The Omniscient, now gives us the introduction to the much anticipated Devin Townsend Project in the form of Ki.

Rating: 8 When this album was released I thought it to be one of the best ambient albums I'd ever heard. Now with further listening I thnk that's a bit of an overstatement, but there are moments on 'Ki' where Devin really excels as a musician. 'Disuptr', 'Heaven Send' and the ever so tense title track are all stellar.

Rating: 7 I bought the project albums in 3, 4, 2, 1 order (listening to Ki for the 1st time). This one sounds like a mix of Ghost and Deconstruction.

  Like this album more than other works by Devin

Rating: 8 Why does Devin always write one or two fantastic tracks (Coast and Disruptr) followed by all these mediocre ones (imo ofc).

Edit: perhaps not mediocre, but they certainly feel like filler relative to what he's capable of...

'Disuptr', 'Heaven Send' and the ever so tense title track are all stellar.

Then there's Coast and Trainfire. Trainfire, especially. God, I love that one.
