If there”s any justice in this cruel world, Devin Townsend and all the
projects he”s ever been a part of will be looked back upon by future
music historians as one of the all-time greats. The man was involved in
several obscure bands in the “90s before forming the legendary Strapping Young Lad, a band whose body of work is, to this day, considered a
milestone of extreme metal. However, the musical genius of Hevy Devy, as he”s come to be known by those who adore him and his music, isn”t
simply confined to music of the heavy sort (though he is exceptionally
good at it). On both his solo records and in Devin Townsend Project,
Devy has explored everything from insane metal operas to ambient music
to pop, and in Casualties of Cool, he”s proven he can even be a
fantastic country/bluegrass musician. Simply put, there”s really nothing Devin Townsend can”t do, and do well.
The latest opus from Devin Townsend Project, Transcendence, opens with an updated version “Truth,” a track that appeared on Devy”s 1998 solo record, Infinity; a clear nod to this storied maestro”s past, but also an appropriate glimpse into
his present state of mind. Time will tell how Transcendence stacks up to the rest of Devy”s catalog, but upon first listen, it”s clear that he
and his otherworldly group of musicians have, once again, achieved
something very special. Not only that, it”s by the far the best sounding record he”s ever made, thanks to a superb engineering and mixing job by Adam “Nolly” Getgood of Periphery.
As with many of Devy”s
albums, Transcendence is a very eccentric collection of songs that is,
at times, extremely theatrical in its execution (no surprise there), and is overall quite uplifting. The man has always had a penchant for
producing completely over-the-top, nigh-operatic compositions, but
that”s part of his charm. Of course, this time around, Devy was much
more liberal in allowing input from the rest of his posse, and the album seems stronger for it. Perhaps more than ever before, the rest of the
band shines and shares the limelight with Devy himself. Of particular
note is the killer drum performance by Ryan van Poederooyen and the
subtle nuances that keyboard player Mike St. Jean adds to each song.
While Transcendence features a few songs that showcase the heavier side of
Devin Townsend Project, it”s in the surprises where this album”s
charisma truly lies. One such surprise is “Secret Sciences,” which opens with an almost “90s alt riff and becomes a quirky pop tune whose
uplifting chorus sounds an awful lot like a popular Disney song from
2013 – at first, anyways (just listen). There”s no telling whether this
was intentional or not, but knowing Devy and his odd sense of humor, it
probably was. No matter though, because it”s one of the album”s
stand-out tracks and will hopefully become a live staple. “Failure” is
of note, if for no other reason than because it boasts an airy, almost
psychedelic guitar solo unlike anything Devy”s ever done before. The
closing track is an interestingly chosen, yet extremely awesome and
faithful rendition of Ween”s “Transdermal Celebration,” and serves as a
chance for Devy to show off his always-impressive vocal range.
Though Transcendence has many of the elements signature to Devin Townsend”s
style of songwriting, it”s a singular work that”s difficult, or perhaps
even unfair, to compare to Devin Townsend Project”s other albums.
Epicloud seems like the closest in terms of the album”s overall
execution, but ultimately, Transcendence is a culmination of all the
best parts of Devin Townsend Project and upholds the standard of quality we”ve come to expect from this wonderful group of musicians. At the
risk of using a poor pun, Devin Townsend Project has once again
transcended themselves with Transcendence.
