The OceanPhanerozoic I: Palaezoic

★★☆☆ While I applaud Robin Staps and his voracious creativity, this time around the result feels less focused and enthralling. The music starts out in solidly familiar territory, but then veers into post-metal, sounding at times like Deftones and A Perfect Circle. You would think this would be a good thing; I’m just not sure it is. Worth a listen, but I’d rather listen to “Pelagial.”
