Tosin Abasi... that is all. I've been listening this band casually for a few years now, but my love for guitar and appreciation for Tosin lead me to checking out this band's discography. Not only was I blown away by the God-like ability of the musicianship, but the quality of the songs and the ride that this debut album takes you on.
From beginning to end, this album is a work of art. There are so many moments that will leave you in awe and constantly rewinding whilst you scratch your head, in attempt to work out what Tosin is playing.
For me personally the songs that really stood out from the pack is the infamous, "Cafo, Tempting Time, Song of Solomon and Behaving Badly". There are so many times whilst listening to this album that I found myself wanting to head-bang, but also many times where I was so drawn in by the music.
Tosin has managed to perfect the art of communicating without lyrics. The music here is both technical and engaging. I can only look forward to the rest of Animals as Leaders' discography and hope for an Australian tour.
