1.0 out of 5 stars Bootleg Amazon.com junk January 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very fine CD musically, but if you purchase this as a CD you will receive some bootleg junk that Amazon.com has manufactured. It contains none of the proper liner notes, band photos, etc. Reminds me of the good 'ole BMG Music Club days of receiving bait-and-switch garbage product. I can see that I will have to be VERY CAREFUL from now on buying music CDs on Amazon. Personally, I think this makes the band and their label look bad if in fact they are participating willingly in this nonsense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good album from Australia's Voyager November 23, 2009
By JP
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A friend turned me onto Australia's Voyager when he let me borrow his copy of their 2007 album UniVers. I was hooked and soon picked up their 2003 debut "Element V". I had heard they had a new album coming out, glad to see it's finally here. After a few listens I still prefer UniVers but Revolution is every bit as good as Element V is.

The melodic metal (somewhat Gothic) sound is dominated by Daniel Estrin's keyboards and singing style (which reminds me of Faith no More's Mike Patton at times) but there's some great guitar work here as well from long time guitarist Simone Dow and new guy Chris Hanssen, who I read is only 17 years old!

The whole album is listenable but, at this time, my favorites are "Lost", "The Devil in Me", "Land of Lies", "Straight to the Other Side", "Times like These" and the title track, which picks up after a slow start. And be sure to check out the video for "The Devil in Me" on their website or YouTube, it's a pretty cool video!

If you like Voyager go ahead and get this, you won't be disappointed. If you're new to the band I'd start with UniVers and, if you like what you hear, then flip a coin between this and Element V.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect! Their most complete album! May 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
My band CypherSeer played with this band in Brooklyn when we were opening for "Creation's End". They had an amazing live show which always gets me interested in listening to their albums. A couple of months down the line; I checked this album out and was blown away! I never listened to something so calm yet be so amped up! "Lost" is clearly the best song to be a single and will leave you wanting more! "Common Ground" and "Total Existence Failure" are my personal favorite because of its catchy melodies, chorus and aggressive music. They entire album is worth listening to many times over.

I Am the Revolution, the third album from Australian progressive metal band Voyager, was one of my most anticipated releases of 2009. I discovered this phenomenal band with their 2008 release Univers, which was far and away my favorite album that year. The band's unique brand of progressive metal - liberally mixing with gothic and death metal elements along with amazing melodies - is utterly captivating, and after discovering them I had very high expectations for I Am the Revolution.

Unfortunately, I Am the Revolution isn't quite the religious experience that Univers was. Don't get me wrong; it's still an incredible and inventive progressive metal album, and a welcome change of pace in a genre that's grown increasingly stale. It just doesn't have the same instantly mesmerizing impact that Univers had. The songs are a tad repetitive, and the vocalist, who is such a major part of this band's sound - seems to rely too much on the lighter elements of his voice, almost like he's singing lullabies. Still, there are some incredible melodies, catchy songs, and while it's not as technical as most prog metal releases, there is enough experimentation and sheer originality on display here that I Am the Revolution should appeal to most fans of the genre.

It may not be the tour de force that Univers was, but I Am the Revolution is still one of the year's better progressive metal albums, and another impressive release by this way too often overlooked band. I highly recommend this band to anyone looking for something new and exciting in the progressive metal scene. Start with Univers if you're new to the band and then loop back around to this one.
