Stéphane Gallay En fait, Arcade Messiah semble avoir compris l’intérêt du rétro-prog. Le groupe ne se contente pas d’aller ressortir les vieux sons du prog seventies de leur embaumement. Il les réarrange avec des sonorités plus modernes, metal et électro, les tourne et retourne tant et plus qu’au final, ça donne quelque chose d’original. (Chroniqué sur alias.erdorin.org) Favorite track: The Witch From The West.

bcb723 So much that is going on here - all by John Bassett. Top shelf songs with strong performances in all aspects. But seriously... the vocal harmonies and arrangements need to be discussed. When you take the time to listen to how complexly integral they are to every song's structure, it is fascinating to hear (go directly to the mind-blown "Can of Worms"). Like we are talking Frusciante or Brandy "Aphrodisiac" level vocal arrangements. Weird comparison for a prog metal album? Maybe. But on point... Favorite track: Show Me The Sun.

Ghigigi Hints of post-rock and stoner metal permeate this album, and each song works wonderfully with the next. This release reminds me a lot of ADHD-era Riverside with its strong hooks, varied textural palette, and adventurous spirit.

Michael Reilly More progressive than metal, The Host is a complex, multilayered album. Although a prog lover, I still prefer Arcade Messiah's earlier hard metal sounds and longer instumentals – they do appear here but so far haven't fully grabbed my attention. Favorite track: Electro Magnetic Divine.
