INCREDIBLE Posted by: from: Scottsdale AZ on I wish i could force the whole world to listen to this. The last record that hit me like this was ALIEN by SYL. I love heavy music that "flies" and is thick with sonic presence. Clean vocals over harsh metal crunch is my mainstay and this one features incredible female vocals and that is just all the better. The music industry (especially metal music) is a complete joke and has been for years. This record is a glimmer of hope in an endless sea of useless talentless garbage. I implore ANYONE especially fans of heavy metal and hard driving music to give this a shot.

Great Album Posted by: from: Joplin, Mo on Excellent second release from Devin Townsend Project! This album is more radio friendly than many of Devin's past projects. That being said, there are plenty of heavy moments and every song still possesses his unmistakable "it" quality. The album may not be for fans who only enjoy the heavy side that was Strapping Young Lad. For these fans I would recommend the next album - which promises to be heavier than any of Devin Townsend's past efforts. Addicted is a fun, driving album, with great vocals and a zeal that is not prevalent in most music today.

More commercial than previous solo projects Posted by: from: MA on Addicted is the second album of the four-part series under the Devin Townsend Project pseudonym, essentially a project featuring Townsend and musicians he hand-picks for each album, which is really cool. Ki, the first part released six months prior, serves as a delectable appetizer with mostly tranquil listening. It’s controlled and teases with letting the wrath loose, and Addicted picks up where Ki left off, the perfect second course. The building anticipation in the title track is heavy. It’s exciting. There's a plethora of sounds and protruding from them all is the experienced, yet virtually unheard of Anneke van Giersbergen, female Dutch singer. Her gentle voice is everywhere – sometimes in the background, sometimes in the forefront, and she surprisingly complements Townsend’s wild side. One song that features her alone is the revamped “Hyperdrive” from Ziltoid the Omniscient, formerly with Townsend’s vocals, but now with Giersbergen’s. While Townsend’s subtler stuff like Ki doesn’t go unappreciated, it’s the heavy stuff that most people really love, and Addicted brings back the “wall of sound” but in a more melodic fashion. Each and every song is catchy with metal elements. Most songs are “Material”-like (Physicist) with a whirlwind of layers & effects, varying degrees of Townsend vocal intensities, and just plain greatness. The exception is the relatively tame “Ih-Ah!” and ironically it’s one of the better songs. Try not to sing along. Addicted is more commercial than previous solo projects but remains to be heavier too. It’s very easy to get in to and will likely go down as one of Townsend’s most approachable albums.
