First, a brief introduction to BTBAM:

If you are unfamiliar with Between the Buried and Me, then you will want to do some research on their musical style before deciding to jump in. The easiest way to describe them is progressive metal with strong metalcore roots, but they have continued to become more progressive with each album, exploring nearly every nook and cranny the world of music has to offer. This album is one that most people would find several sections that they enjoy, but most would also dislike the album as a whole. BTBAM is absolutely amazing at what they do, but their style is not for everyone. It is also worth noting that a single song may not be the best way to "research" BTBAM since their styles can vary so significatly. I would recommend at least checking out these songs to get an idea of the stylistic range you will encounter with BTBAM: White Walls, Desert of Song, and Lunar Wilderness. So there is my fairly unbiased disclaimer, now to the review!

For those who are familiar with BTBAM:

I have only had 4 days with the album so far, so no I will not be saying if it is "better" than Colors or not. I absolutely love Colors, but I don't want more Colors. And if you share that sentiment you will find an equally impressive yet different album in Parallax II. This album is easily the most dynamically and stylistically varied album I have ever listened to, and will have numerous surprises to even the most die-hard BTBAM or progressive metal fan. Abrupt dynamic and stylistic changes have become more commonplace for BTBAM in their recent work, but, as I felt with Parallax I, those abrupt changes have felt more naturally flowing and purposeful than they used to.

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favorite BTBAM, And That's Saying A Lot October 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I listen to so many new albums that I've developed a few ways to help determine just how much I like something and whether or not it's worth taking up my time and space on my computer/iPod. For example, how quickly does the music become familiar, meaning how fast does it get logged into my brain and allow me to follow along, anticipate upcoming sections, and have the songs develop their own unique place in my mind? Some music never gets to this level. I become so bored after a few listens that I'm never hooked and, consequently, either delete it or ignore it when searching through my iPod. I've been a BTBAM fan since The Silent Circus days and have to say that this album hooked me faster than any of their others. After only a couple of listens, it was like Parallax II was already one of my old favorites and its ever-rising play count highlights this fact. Also, I find myself listening to this album from beginning to end every time, like it's one long work. I do this with their other albums too, of course, but there are also times when I search for that one song to play off of their other albums and ignore the others (songs like Sun of Nothing, Swim to the Moon, Selkies, and Mordecai). There are definitely high points to Parallax II as well, but they feel like crescendos in one masterpiece instead of individual songs. I think from beginning to end, this is my new favorite BTBAM.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you love BTBAM, you will love this! October 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Yep, they've done it again. Another epic outing from BTBAM. At this point, I'm not sure that they can really surprise any of us who are huge fans, but they continue to hone their sound and do what they do very, very, very well. If you are a fan, there is nothing here that will turn you off. Long songs full of incredible musicianship, style shifts, time changes, etc. Beautiful acoustic passages turn to full-throated death metal and back again. I personally find 'The Great Misdirect' to be the BTBAM album I go back to most often, and I'm not sure if 'Parallex II' will replace that for me, but it's a solid album from these guys, and it continues to grow on me the more I listen. So again, if you like BTBAM, go get this...

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best music I've ever heard... November 24, 2012
By Andrew
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To say that Parallax II is spectacular is an understatement. In fact, I believe there are no words for describing the album. You simply must listen for yourself, and I doubt you'll be disappointed. I would recommend, however, listening to Parallax I and perhaps even reading this first: [...] Parts 1 AND 2 if you'd really like to be familiarized with the story being told with this amazing music. I definitely think any fan of metal that appreciates when bands blend genres and experiment will love this album as much as I did. Give it a listen, you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars best yet November 5, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Honestly, the first time listened through the whole album, it was a bit of a let down. But I knew that there was far too much for me to take in with just one listen. After a few more listens I realized that the smoothness of the music is what hid the underlying complexity. This is one of the best albums I've ever listened to, and to understand the magnitude of the music it has to be listened to from start to finish. BTBAM is one of the most talented groups around and it really shows in Parallax II: Future Sequence. The only bad thing is that now I have to wait an uncertain amount of time for a new album. I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes music.
