VOIVOD / Angel Rat (1991)

The classic Voivod sound continued to soften and by album number six the chaotic structures were tamed, the bass was horribly defuzzed and the guys had skipped fancifully into Dimension Prog Rock.  I'm not a follower of prog in general and I've no idea how fans of that genre feel about it.  Does it sound as off the wall to them as the earlier spacey-metal Voivod albums do to me?  I genuinely hope so, because then it wouldn't be a complete waste of time and air.  Personally, I can listen to about a selective third of it before I've to fight an urge to stomp all over the disc.  File under: Damn, it's even more purple than usual!
