For an instrumental album it's quite good. Little bit of Meshuggah "djent" type sections. Lots of interesting switches during the songs. Good.

Animals as Leaders may be one of the most important bands to come out of the metal scene in the last 10 years. While some may argue this opinion, it's undeniable that their genre-fluent and extremely progressive style has been an inspiration to many others in their relatively short career (so far).

This album is probably the most balanced album AAL has ever made, with a clear exhibition of multi-genre influences in songs such as "Another Year" and "Para Mexer". Others such as "Physical Education" and "Air Chrysalis" demonstrate a tasteful restraint and sense of playfulness that may surprise listeners who only know of AAL's past catalogue. While AAL are able to demonstrate a more versatile and mature sound, they still bring their signature mind-bending technicality in songs like "Ka$cade", "Tooth and Claw", and "The Woven Web". Highly recommended album.

While 8 of the 12 songs here are particularly good, two of those, Tracks #1 and 11 are special to me.
