As a whole, “Justify & Reason” is thus a solid release that combines multiple hooking factors, making it appeal to various tastes. The ferocious side is there for the true headbanger, the awesome vocal talent for the listener that loves to sing along, and the impeccable musicianship for those that like to swing an air-guitar and -drum. Production-wise, this is a massive step up from Synaptik’s debut album but the songwriting, too, is much more impressive. These various combining factors make “Justify & Reason” a lot more approachable than its predecessor.
For the fans of: Dream Theater, Mastodon, One Machine
