Staff review by
Of all the young French bands Gojira is without any doubt the most promising and probably the most talented. Even if their first two albums were already excellent and even if we all know that a third release can be fatidic, it can also be a nice confirmation. It's a confirmation yes, a confirmation of all the potentiality of this amazing combo and it's not really surprising to see that all the media in Europe say that it is one of the best release of the year 2005. "From Mars To Sirius" is a must…

People keep sending me these weird PM's asking me what album I want to be buried with just in case I should die later tonight in mysterious circumstances (the fuck is going on guys?).

Well, lo and behold, one of my favorite all time classics right here. My "Holy Jesus on Ice Skates" meter just keeps going off the charts every time I play this ridiculously awesome record... to use an understatement.

I'm sure this is the case for many others, but this album was definitively my gateway to Gojira-and naturally, became one of my favourite bands for a good few years (I was around 12 when this came out). Literally wet my pants when I saw them live at my first ever gig too (supporting Annihilator and Trivium on what was a great all-round performance, and they based most of the setlist around this album. I still think back and remember how heavier "The Heaviest Matter in the Universe" sounded live than it did on the record, but it's such an amazing song too, and the same simply goes for every other track save "Into the Wilderness" and "Unicorn", two tracks which stand out as being the weakest in my opinion. Yet two tracks as such don't bring the overall quality down. Indeed, if I could summarize this album up in one word, it would be "Massive". Every song is in-your face, but no more so than atmospheric, mesmerizing and basically explosive in one way or another.

Oh, and "World to Come" hits my sweet spot every time it comes on the stereo.

3:35 of "Ocean Planet" is one of my favorite riffs and just in general moments of music ever.

Not my favorite genre but this album kicks ass. Blast at high volume and listen. The drumming is bloody intense and the riffing is like a steel factory. Enjoy this masterpiece.
