Very different sounding modern guitar music. Lots of traditional guitar tones but a lot of weird textures and back drops, loops, ambience, feedback, etc. It all works brilliantly if I may say so.
Could have been a bit better if there were some guitar solos. I mean IE is known for over the top and blazing guitar solos, so I was expecting a lot, but there are exactly zero solos. But the album still is awesome because it is so melodic and powerful. Plus it came with a free lesson called "The Jupiter Code" that details IE's tricks on postmodern speed.
Worst aspect? That it wasn't a double album! I guess a lot of people who listen to the radio might hear this album and think it sounds like it came out of a project studio. And it did. But I like the production and compared to most of the stuff in this genre it sounds darn fine.
IE can't be compared to any other guitarist. The man is a total original. I've been waiting a long time (okay, three years) for this album and he finally did it.
