Animals As Leaders – Self Titled

Animals As Leaders Self Titled:

So if you’re in a prog-metal band, what do you do for a side project? Why a prog-metal instrumental album of course. Tosin Abasi, of Reflux, is an incredibly gifted with the guitar. There are parts of this album that will cause any guitarist to be impressed. The trouble is that this sounds like a bad Buckethead album. The playing is technically amazing, but it just feels like showing off So after a few minutes of technical riffing, it just sounds the same and becomes monotonous. If you’re a guitar player, or you love Dream Theater, you may get some enjoyment out of this album. Anyone else should just go get Praxis album instead.

  1. Not really sure I agree with you at all on your review but to each his own.

    I would say it’s a Technically impressive, very colorful, boundary pushing album.

    The buckethead comment is harsh.
