Read on for a few reviews of the album:


"'Epicloud' is huge...Devin Townsend is to music as what Michelangelo was to painting and sculpting." -- ABSOLUTE PUNK.net


"...an exhilarating amalgam of show tunes, metal, gospel, techno, prog, pop, rock and musical genres that only exist in Townsend's head." -- DECIBEL MAGAZINE


"Devin Townsend continues to excel at being one of the noteworthy prolific musicians in metal today with the excellent 'Epicloud'." -- LAMBGOAT.com 


"Devin Townsend's new album, 'Epicloud,' is incredible; it might be Devy's White Album...It melds a whole lot of different styles into a series of dangerously catchy tunes; a whole lot of the album isn't metal, but every second of it is great, and yes, most certainly EPIC." -- METAL SUCKS.net


"...a bombastic and catchy record, filled to the brim with some of the best pop metal you will ever find...'Epicloud' is without a doubt the strongest collection of songs on any Townsend record to date." -- HEAVY BLOG IS HEAVY.com


"Although he's known world-wide for his heavy riffing, there has always been a lot more than just that going on in his music. Listening to 'Epicloud's opening tune 'True North' you get classical choruses, power-metal layering, Scandinavian folk and frightfully meaty sludge metal slashing." -- VANCOUVER PROVINCE
