I am extremely excited & positively impacted after having listened to this album for the first time JUST NOW. And I don't feel that I can pen down my thoughts and articulate them precisely right now considering the fact that I will truly need to listen to this work many more times to keep uncovering layers off of it that, I'm expecting, would go on amazing me each time around. But I still HAD to write this quick review to let everyone know that PLEASE buy this album...it is yet another recording, sound engineering masterpiece which has some extremely catchy and kick-a** songs. In true OSI style it is a heady mix of controlled aggression, metal and ambiance...PERFECTED!!!

This album is very airy, spaced out yet contained and very very tight.

I love this album...the song Blood is simply mind blowing. And my favorite "We come undone" is just beautiful and dark. To create Radiologue would need a fried brain with fifteen thousand cups of coffee and too many joints. I just love the way layers of ambient sound textures seep through the "metal" so to speak. The crazy stereo panning and fractured delays with guitars and wierd sounds all melted together to form a complete picture is something beyond my comprehension as to how all that gets executed so beautifully by Mr. Moore and OSI.

Kevin Moore's singing and voice is just unreal (at least I feel so that its one of the most unique voices I've heard in a long time which is also very natural). Radiologue is a great song with a very catchy chorus.

Last but not the least you HAVE to listen to believe the craziness that is the song "False start".

On the third OSI album, Blood, it is significantly easier to pinpoint what parts of each tune were penned by whom, as Jim Matheos assumes a bigger role on the album compared to their previous outing, Free. Unlike before, his riffs have been kept intact whereas Kevin Moore has applied his own songwriting vision without altering Matheos' ideas too much.

Matheos brings in plenty of catchy guitar riffs, which are merged with Kevin Moore's unique sense of atmosphere. None of the songs are heavy from start to finish, but several tunes, including the album opener "The Escape Artist," "False Start," and "Be the Hero" are marked with Matheos' distinctive riff architecture which is grooving and gripping. When combined with Moore's considerably catchier vocal parts, especially on the chorus of "False Start," the tunes feel like they would work greatly in a live setting if the duo were ever to play a show.

Kevin Moore's slow, monotonous delivery is still prevalant on all the tunes he sings, but he manages to implement more melody this time around, especially on the more Chroma Key-like pieces. His atmospherically dense tunes involve more synth work, lots of protruding noisescapes, and pulsing beats. "Terminal" is a very moody tune, comprised of myriad digital and acoustic elements; it boasts a deep, haunting atmosphere while "We Come Undone" sees the band work some of the compositional aesthetics of Free into the composition. Then there is "Radiologue," possibly their most inspired songwriting, where they blend modern and traditional songwriting elements into a cohesive whole driving the piece to a bittersweet midsection filled with wicked sonic experimentation.

New drummer Gavin Harrison proves to be a great fit, as he contributes immensely to the songs.

I've heard this disc maybe six times now, and it has improved with every listen. At first I wasn't so sure. I mean, I liked it right off, no doubt, but man I LOVED Free and OSI both. This one doesn't have quite the progressive edge of their first, nor quite the pop hooks of their second. What it has, after six listens, is really just starting to emerge for me. So, I would give it four stars today, but I've seen this too many times to not know already: I will give it five stars tomorrow.

The most striking components for me, initially, are the pulsing, off-center arrangements of many of the tracks, suggesting a concept album built off of a palpitating heart monitor. Also notable are the thick, sexy, candy-colored textures and synths, which mesh with Matheos' guitar work remarkably--again bringing artfully to mind the texture of blood.

Moore's vocals, at first seemed slightly less perfect than on the first two albums, but the more I hear it the more I like them. On that point, Akerfeldt and Bowness are freaking amazing. Maybe this is a departure point for the group, and more guest vocals will be forthcoming.

If that is the case . . . bring back BOWNESS! OMG! If you buy this disc, get the BONUS EDITION! No Celebrations is probably the best song on either disc. Funny . . . its exclusion from the album seems really stupid, until you think about it thematically, and the whole thing suddenly extends away from you with vertigo-inducing depth that you might never have expected . . .

Yeah, I'll give it five stars tomorrow, just as soon as I catch up with it.
