Editorial Reviews

Australian band VOYAGER s loyal international fanbase has praised its incredibly catchy songwriting and compared its sound to a mixture of AMORPHIS' thirst for melody, SOILWORK's heaviness and the crystal vocal clarity of A-HA's Morton Harket. Their 4th album is a dark, heavy, introspective, at times electronic, yet often uplifting journey into the mind in search of meaning. "The Meaning Of I" is a culmination of VOYAGER's sound: polished yet organic, heavy yet melodic, dark yet playful. The album was mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren (OPETH, SOILWORK). Special guest vocal performances by Dan Tompkins (TESSERACT) and DC Cooper (ROYAL HUNT). Surrealist artist George Grie provided the gripping cover art.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece of melody and progression October 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD
It wasn't all that long ago that the term "progressive metal" essentially meant "bands that sound like Dream Theater." In recent years, however, a variety of innovative bands have taken the progressive metal genre and, well...progressed. As a result you have truly progressive bands branching out in all sorts of interesting directions, from metalcore (Between the Buried and Me) to djent (Tesseract) to black metal (Ihsahn) and beyond. And then there's Australian band Voyager, who sounds like...no one else, really, and have managed to incorporate elements of gothic metal and dark ambient music into their highly melodic brand of progressive metal. Over the course of three albums, Voyager has continued to evolve and perfect their unique sound, and is now poised to break through with The Meaning of I, their first album for the Sensory label.

As with their 2007 album Univers, The Meaning of I grabs the listener immediately with its utterly captivating melodies and entirely unpredictable progressions. Honestly, it takes all of 30 seconds of opening song "Momentary Relapse" for you to throw off any expectations and happily see where Voyager takes you. In large part, The Meaning of I is all about the melodies. Whether it's coming from the guitars, the intricate rhythms, the gothic keyboards or Daniel Estrin's powerful and dramatic vocals, the wealth of lush melodies works together to permanently etch these songs into your head. On your first listen you'll be tapping your fingers. The second time through you'll hum along. The third time through you're ready to sing these songs like they're old favorites. Speaking of old favorites, you'll be reminded of several when listening to this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars What is "The Meaning of I"? March 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Upon my first time listening to this I immediately enjoyed it and was simultaneously puzzled by the sounds: thinking that I had picked up a progressive metal CD (yep, fits that category) I heard a lot of sounds (keys and some of the guitars along with the lead's vocals) that reminded me of early 80's New Wave and some of the better guitar moments from early 80's pop bands like Tears For Fears, the Fixx, Big Country and the like. I came away from my initial listening thinking that this CD was like a mash-up of these influences and Dream Theater! After several more listens these influences began to sink into the background, but not entirely. Danny Estrin's vocals are clear and clean and oddly syncopated. I like his voice and it never gets lost in the mix or the music. He sings forcefully and there is a gothic/ doom quality to his register. His use of keys and electronics add a good deal of variety to the sound on this album. This is a guitar album but, like Estrin's vocals, the guitars stand out only in places. You really have to pay attention to them to hear some of the complexity. The guitars are often of the CHUG-CHUG-CHUG-Stop...CHUG-CHUG-CHUG-stop...variety and that's what's easy to hear on first listen but they are much more present than that. The drumming Mark Boeijen is thick and heavy and lends to the overall heaviness of this CD (think a less intense and more rhythmically concerned Mike Portnoy); I really like it for its variance and for it grouding the CD along with Estrin's vocals. Here are some thoughts on the songs:

1) Momentary Relapse of Pain: heavy drums punctuated by quick syncopations puts this disc on the map. Clear, 80's-sounding slightly British vocals make for what you're going to hear a lot of over this disc. The music is heavy but goes down easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Meaning Of... September 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After hearing a few songs from this band on an internet radio station, I knew I'd have to check them out further. Glad I did. "The Meaning Of I" is the fourth release from this Australian prog-metal band. Personally, I like their previous two releases a bit more than this one. Don't get the wrong idea though. This disc is solid and I highly recommend it to progressive metal fans. The majority of the album is very catchy. There's even a short number sung in German.

For fans of Pagan's Mind, Dream Theater, Circus Maximus, etc.
