A Moon Shaped Pool is Radiohead's best album since OK Computer.

I'll check it out but In Rainbows didn't do it for me and I didn't bother with King Of Limbs as I heard even Radiohead fans didn't like it.

Ziltoid The Omniscient is my favourite Devin Townsend album.

Z2 was poor by comparison imo.

I think Devin has a big potential to split opinion more than most as his music is so diverse. I don't hate any of his albums but some are just perfect for me whilst others are..........less so.

As I mentioned in the Dev thread I think I prefer the Live at The Royal Albert Hall version of Z2 to the studio. It's so good. I love ZTO but I just love most of Dev's albums more.

But anyone who DOESN'T like Dev, they are being too controversial!!

I like HIM, on principle, because I like his approach, his flexibility, and his talent, but honestly there is very little of his music that I have heard that makes me say "Whoa, I want to hear this again and again!".

I liked the more serious side of Devin back when he made really great albums like Ocean Machine and Terria, but after albums like Ziltoid and Deconstruction, whenever I think of Devy I think of fart sounds, quirky "haha this is so funny" lyrics and almost making a joke parody of how silly prog metal can be.

True, there should be a distinction between Dev using humor as a means of getting across an actually interesting message of self reflection and introspection, vs. humor for sake of being silly. I would lump both Ziltoid and Deconstruction (mostly just the song and TMM) in the former, and Z2 in the latter.

A Moon Shaped Pool is definitely better than the albums pre-Kid A but doesn't quite live up to the Kid A/Amnesiac/In Rainbows level, but it's close.

I like Dev because he pokes fun at all the bullshit that surrounds us in every aspect of modern life.

When he makes "humorous" songs/albums I always take it more as a social commentary than trying to be funny. I see it as all part of his journey breaking free of the restrictions of being perceived as "metal" in his Strapping days.

I love him for that.

I really don't like Illumination Theory.

But I like it a lot more than A Change Of Seasons.

Octavarium is easily the best though, yeah.

I'd actually put The Count Of Tuscany above both I.T & A.C.O.S

Yep, I'm not a huge fan of ACoS. I really like TCoT but I'd rank it lower than IT, but not by much.

I think I.T. is too disjointed - there's too many riffs in too short a time.

Maybe but the high points in that song just do it for me big time.

A Change of Seasons used to be my favorite DT song. Not it's not, and it is tied with Octavarium for the best epic. I like them both much more than IT.

A CHANGE OF SEASONS:

The "Please Don't Go" original demo is much better musically/composition-wise (including LaBrie's screeching highest of high falsettos) than the re-arranged/re-recorded version that came out on the 1995 EP.

Floor tom roll intro into not quite Six Degrees main theme. Then a succession of guitar pull off - hammer on riffs in that sacrificed sons vein.

Not sure how controversial this is, but I consider Death Magnetic to be Metallica's 2nd worst album.

And after watching the really entertaining 2 hour making of docu, where it's clear that just about every aspect of every song was decided by committee, it helped solidify my opinion that it's soulless and completely uninspired.
