Devin Townsend – Lightwork | Album Review

An album that Devin wrote over the last few years and is advertised as his most inspired work to date. After hearing Lightwork, I understand why. It’s definitely more song-oriented instead of one massive, sprawling, connected album, and it works well. The mixing and production are top-notch as always. Lightwork is not overly aggressive but it’s still engaging. It’s more experimental for the man but it also is upbeat and peaceful while still having complicated guitar work at moments. This is for people who wanted to check out Devin Townsend’s material but were intimidated by the extreme metal. Lightwork is much calmer. Prog at heart but more resembling arena rock and much more lighthearted and optimistic. It’s as creative as it is inspiring. 8/10
