Heavy, melodic, and memorable, this album has everything. The songwriting and performance is so good, I get taken on a journey when listening. Listen on vinyl for the best experience!
Favorite track: The Pace of Glaciers.
The complete discography is awesome, that mix they achive between progressive rhytim and death metal riffs in a couple of songs are awesome and remindme "animal as leaders", but this is a way better!!!
Terrapin is the product of three years of writing, workshopping, and experimenting with new kinds of music. Our goal with this record was to create pieces that were dynamic, focused, and tie back to a common musical theme. At the same time, we wanted to push ourselves as musicians with forceful rhythms and odd timings. Alan Lightman’s “Einstein’s Dreams” was a helpful tool in channeling visual metaphor into sonic metaphor, and many of the song titles are quotes from his book. Each illustration coincides with a song in the album and a chapter in Lightman’s book. Without concrete lyrics, there is room for more imagination, which is why we find such beauty in instrumental music.

Blimey, that's a bit of a step up! What a stunning opener.
The title track is great, too.
There's so much more range here than on previous outings - it really is wonderful to listen.
Indeed, Every Piece Matters. Peter Jones
