The Great Misdirect is very much a structural refinement of Colors. It's in the same vein, but better in every way. Like its predecessor, The Great Misdirect also starts with a softer number, but unlike Foam Born, Mirrors feels like a fully developed song instead of a passing thought. The Great Misdirect also ends with a long-running epic, but we'll get to that later. First, I want to revisit those aforementioned 'wacky' parts . Wedged between the 12 minute Fossil Genera and the 18 minute Swim to the Moon, Desert of Song could pass for the weakest on the album (though I'd personally give that honour to Swim to the Moon ). But clocking in at a modest five and a half minutes, it's a necessary bridge between two long-winded epics.

Between the Buried and Me is an American progressive metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina. Formed in 2000, the band consists of Tommy Giles Rogers Jr. (lead vocals, keyboards), Paul Waggoner (lead guitar, backing vocals), Dustie Waring (rhythm guitar, lead guitar), Dan Briggs (bass, keyboards), and Blake Richardson (drums).
After Between the Buried and Me pushed metalcore purists away with their most progressive release, Colors, they decided to push even harder for their fifth release. A diverse outing with an unruly amount of genres crammed into only six songs, The Great Misdirect is a highly adventurous, very convoluted, wildly dynamic, and extremely difficult listen. Briggs, Waring, Rogers, Waggoner, and Richardson are in top form, with their script-flipping abilities intact and their technical chops at their most extreme.
The Great Misdirect has been added to your Cart. I have been waiting for this release since I discovered "Colors" in the fall of 2007. I was not sure how this album would pan out but I must admit it is another masterpiece by Between the Buried and Me. If the musicianship of "Colors" mesmerized you, the energy of "The Silent Circus" enthralled you and the unpredictable mayhem of "Alaska" kept you coming back for more; your socks will be blown off upon the first listen of "The Great Misdirect". Before listening to the "Colors" album I was not a fan of metal in any way, shape or form.
This unique band has been stirring up much discussion in the progressive metal world lately, and after hearing this album it's obvious why this band is getting so much attention. I had enjoyed their previous album, Colors, prior to hearing The Great Misdirect, and I must say that this album is just about equal with its outstanding predecessor. The type of music that is played here is undeniably BtBaM's unique spin on progressive metal. To me, this album sounds like your traditional prog metal in the vein of Dream Theater with more space rock sounds (think Pink Floyd) with some added death metal and metalcore influences.
