Personally, I think Dev is one of the best and most versatile musicians out there today, and it's a shame that he doesn't get more recognition.

So versatile I had trouble figuring out what forum to post this in, seeing as how he's done Punk, Progressive, Metal, Pop, whatever. You name it, he's probably done it.

So what are your thoughts on Devin Townsend?

Damn, really? :O

Even though I am a huge fan of people like Dan Swano and Steven Wilson, nobody will ever compare to the sheer eccentricity and enlightenment of Devy's musical talent.

Devin is truly, in the truest sense of the phrase, a maniacal genius.

I would compare him to Steven Wilson in how diverse he can be, but I'd say he's the more extreme version of Wilson .

That's for his solo stuff though - not him as a person.

Devy is a god. You bow down before him, no questions asked. Synchestra, Accelerated Evolution, Ziltoid, City, Alien... the list goes on. Such good stuff.

Fin.

can't wait to hear his metal symphony

I just find Devin's music so... without sounding too pretentious... avant-garde yet somehow very simplistic at the same time.

EDIT: Primal, his music is very primal

thats the perfect word to describe him

Infinity is an amazing record. Its the only one I got but its absolutely amazing. Also, Devin Townsend along with Mikael Akerfeldt is the funniest man in metal.

No. There should at least be a little room for criticism.

I can't think of any now, but I want freedom.

Obviously his solo work is amazing, but I also like the stuff he did with Steve Vai and Ayreon. With Vai, Sex & Religion (the song) was brilliant.

And he's responsible for the best bit in any Ayreon song ever. That being "NEVER! NEVER! NEVER! NEVER!" etc.
#17
I really don't like Vai...

Not even Devy can save that mess.

Regarding Rick's plea for freedom: Unfortunately for you, this forum is run by the british.

Devin is the only man to ever be a bigger genius than Tom Waits. Truly an amazing achievement.
Dyer's Eve is awesome, and has an abnormally large penis, which doesn't act as any hinderance to his everyday life despite its freakishly large size.
