Album Review: Animals as Leaders – The Joy of Motion Altwire Staff April 7, 2014 CD Reviews 0 Comments In this current generation of music is it well agreed upon that the soul of a record can easily be drowned out by technology or even technicality. The result is magnificent. But the recent surge of bands opting to let their music do the talking did prove one thing: there is geek-driven power in numbers. This album definitely had the magic touch, with enough variety from track to track to keep you engaged. 2014’s “The Joy of Motion” is the best amalgamation of the accessibility with which “Animals As Leaders” taught legions of guitarists to re-model the way they look at their guitar, and the in-your-face technical juggernaut that “Weightless” despite its name, stands for. But more importantly, this record boasts a remarkable talent to create music that is as detailed and well educated in production as it is mesmerizing and unusually fun to drink in. The gentler moments, which you'll find in nearly every track on the album, are welcome respite, providing contrast with the dissonant onslaught of Vai-like modal lead lines, syncopated rhythms and Abasi and Reyes' brutal octave-down dual eight- string riffing.
