Just got notification that the new Contortionist is on the way. I haven't anticipated the release of an album like this in a long time. Language really clicked with me and this seems to be heading even further in that direction.

The three songs released all ready sound great to me and, considering Language only really worked well as a whole, I take it as a positive sign.

I wish they stopped trying to be Tesseract and went back to their first release 'Exoplanet' and had more breakdowns.
Having said that, the new single Return to Earth has gripped me and if they are trying to further the Tesseract sound, it needs to be better executed than their previous release 'Language'

If breakdowns make you stiff, Nix, you're gonna be as soft as warm butter

Some of the songs and the flow was good but it's all a bit samey samey sometimes. The melodies are nice as always but I cant get over the fact that its basically moving into Progressive Rock territory, and also, they really seem to coming across as self-indulgent here.

6/10 for me.
