Animals As Leaders - "The Madness of Many" album review

Music Album Review: Animals As Leaders - "The Madness of Many" (8/10)

Since 2009, Animals As Leaders have been gaining respect with their progressive instrumental metal compositions. But on this, their fourth release, guitar virtuoso Tosin Abasi and company experiment in and outside the genre and the results are quite pleasing. “Private Visions of the World” holds an upbeat, dare I say almost pop vibe, while “The Glass Bridge” showcases the band’s continual growth as not just musicians, but songwriters too. It did come as a surprise that they seemed to phone in the quality of acoustic guitar tone in the album’s final two songs. A great listen nonetheless.

Score: 8 out of 10
