Devin Townsend - Lightwork


Recommended Posts

I'm gonna throw this here, because, from what I can tell, this album is gonna be a bit more Proggy than usual. Maybe I'm wrong, but whatever. These three singles have me excited for the album releasing soon in November. I've never given him much attention, and I think that needs to change. Gotta rep the local talent.

Been listening to this a fair bit lately. I really like it. Quite diverse, especially if you have the deluxe version which includes "Nightwork." I'm sure everyone would find at least one song that appeals to them.

Agree. It is probably his most accessible album in a long time.

Accessible is a good way to put it.

Yeah, I listen to it and it is still unmistakably Devin but it just sounds a lot more open with his wall of sound, while remaining, sounds not so overwhelming and dense.

Personally, I feel this album is better mixed and produced than previous outings. Is it a tilt for some mainstream acceptance? Probably not as it is still proggy. But, it may bring in more rock fans who are less metallic-inclined.

In saying that, don't get me wrong, there is plenty to love for a hard rocker in this double album. And at $20 for two full discs of music, it is a downright bargain.

Holy fuck. You only paid $20? It's $60 on Amazon for me. I was gonna ask, where do people purchase CDs these days? 

Also, watch some of the "making of" videos on the YouTubes. He explains the process for this album. It def wasn't an attempt to draw new fans.

JB was Australia's music seller, now a more concerns about many tellys, phones or computers they sell for the week.

Most new J B that opens up have those are home makers, has none of CDs and DVDs'

Another thing they stock are dolls, which some managers hate.

The best finds your favorite one and stick to them and get a music knowledge staff member.

Damn. Why is it so bloody expensive for me? I mean, I might as well drive over to his house and buy a copy in person. Heh.

I never had that issue. I also got Kissin Dynamite off them back then... I hope it wasn't my fault and that I bought their only copy!!!

    • If they made something along the lines soundwise to Prisoners In Paradise i'd be well pleased , can't see it...but we can hope.
    • Have to take that interview with a pinch of salt. Firstly because John said they have tried metal and tried grunge, but none of their albums are really either of those. They are just "modern" sounding which pretty much takes a small pinch of everything really. Yes songs like The Beast are about as close to metal as they have done, none of their albums scream metal or grunge. I also don't think you can really take much from anything John says as he is not the one controlling the band, that is Joey. Think I have said this story before, but a friend of mine is a huge Europe fan and she used to go to all their gigs and even hung out with them a few times. She was a massive fan of John but she said Joey was a lot tougher to get to know as he was like a dictator in the band. He said jump and John (and the others) said how high? I don't think Joey is a bad person or anything like that, just that he likes to run the band how he likes it. And with what Geoffrey just said, it does not matter what Ian hints at with how happy he might be with newer material, he knows what side his bread his buttered on and stays with the band. If he hated it that much, why doesn't he leave? Mostly because he knows this is where he is best off. He has worked with other artists like Glenn Hughes etc over the years, so he knows there is work out there for him, but he must feel that Europe is the best place for him.
    • I remember listening to an interview with Ian Haugland recently where he mentioned that ‘Prisoners in paradise’ was his favourite album and I got a very distinct impression he didn’t love what they were doing these days.    Same dude interviewed Kee Marcelo who said he’d have no interest in returning to Europe, hypothetically, of course, as Norum seems locked in… and he said not a chance if they kept playing what they are these days.    Either way, I hope this story is true because it’s an incredible waste of what could still be a good band. Savage waste, one might say, and I’d love to hear another crack at good music.

    • I think I'm becoming a fan!
    • Daniels,Bell and the drummer are nothing but worthless scabs and posers....I hope Steve Lynch buries these turds through litigation.If he could pull off a small miracle and pull Plunkett' back into the fold for a couple reunion gigs,that alone would be the biggest middle finger to these tossers.
