    Limited Deluxe 2CD Edition!

    Over the past few years, the success that Devin Townsend has slowly worked for has fortunately come with the power to control his own creative destiny.

    On this album Devin has decided to see what would happen if all the styles that make up his current interests were finally represented in one place.

    To finally shake the fear of expectation, and just do what it is he was meant to do creatively, 'Empath', true to the name, is about allowing the audience a feeling for a variety of musical emotions. The musical dynamics represented on this single album are broad, challenging, and immense. To approach this sort of work with a long history of what makes heavy music 'heavy', allows this to be done with a type of power rarely heard.

    A bold statement with massive production values and dynamic, uncompromised musicality. This is a statement about not only pursuing creative freedom in a conservative scene, but also trying to show that heavy music is truly a valid musical tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Masterpeace More of a work of art than a commercial record. This album spans "lord of the rings" orchestral sections all the way to full on metal in an elegant yet tasteful contrast of music styles. Its testament to the talent and diversity that Devin brings. So much work has gone into this album, from the production to artwork in the album cover. Well worth buying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Extreme Dev I’ve been a fan of Dev since SYL and OM but truth be told I struggled a lot with this. Many describe this album as the work of a genius, but in my mind it’s more like the ramblings of a mad man. It needs several listens. There are moments of gold but they are woven around other not so brilliant phrases. I am pressing skip a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Devin Townsend’s Empath is a tour de force Possibly Devin’s most cohesive outing. An operatic tour de force that draws on such diverse influences as Gong’s Flying Teapot, Death Metal grows and mathematical drums, a smattering of Muse (before they became rubbish) and Frank Zappa via Steve Vai. Awesome!!!
