Devin Townsend Project – Ki (2009)

There is no denying the sheer musicianship on display here, from Devin and all of his collaborators. Everything hangs perfect in the balance, and even the man’s famous wall-of-noise production style is dialled back to allow the songs to breathe a bit. However, if I had to describe Ki with one word, that word would be “listless”. Honestly, this is one of the longest listening hours of my life, and the fact that I’ve had this on the LIW to-do list since 2014 speaks volumes. Honestly, this goes absolutely nowhere. Its one for die hard Devy fans, I’d say.
