Very tight and intricate album, but there's nothing to latch on to. It wasn't unpleasurable to listen to, but once it finished all I could muster was a "meh". I guess you could say I found this rather lifeless compared to their previous works.
Written by Guest on 16.07.2017 at 23:59 Haven't heard much of this band's work. Oddly enough there is quite a few people my age around here that love these guys. Are they really any good?
I recall I gave Weightless a listening back when it was released and I found it fairly good tbh. Worth check it out. I'm not a prog fan by any means (closer to the contrary most of the time) so in my case I just kept in mind to have it mostly in the background and enjoy the overall idea rather than specific songs, riffs and such... Like a jazz or even a drone/ambient album in a way.

I don't take enough drugs these days to make listening to this kind of stuff interesting anymore. It seems like wankery for wankery's sake.
That's just how progressive music is my man. Progressive music speaks to musicians, and all the "wankery" is to hopefully inspire and influence other musicians. I am a drummer, and I love listening to Progressive Music because it gives me new ways to practices and how to increase my skill. Animals As Leaders aren't wanking necessarily, but making complex music to show their talent. If you want to check out bands who wank for the sake of wanking, then check out Technical Death Metal... Brain Drill is the worst example...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vrbt14uej08 this live version of "The Brain Dance" is my favorite track by this band. Really mesmerizing and complex at the same time. These guys make me want to buy an 8 string and start composing on it. I actually am planning to do it soon after I decide which guitar to pick.
