Giant Squid is a band that has been emerging in the metal scene as of late, and after a generally well received EP in 2011 and the success of The Ichthyologist, I figured a review for their first work, Metridium Fields (a re-release anyways) was in order. In a nutshell, this album is varied, unique, and surprisingly good.

  Might have to revisit this band at some point. The only release of theirs that I like is the Cenotes EP, which I think is brilliant.

That's the only one I've heard... and it's indeed brilliant. Almost afraid to check the others because of that.

Rating: 8 From my vague memory this is the best Giant Squid release. Haven't listened to it in about 5 years though.

Rating: 10 I regret giving this a 9 when I reviewed it, looking back after many more times listening to it I have trouble picking out any flaws.

So you think you should have scored it higher?

Yeah... It's been a while since I read it but if I recall correctly my main complaint in the review was some of the songs weren't as good as the best ones and the title track was too long. But now I have come around to thinking each song offers something different and the title track is actually a very good length, so I can't really say much negative about the album anymore.
