    Target Earth is not only better than we had any right to expect, it's relentlessly creative, inspired, and manic.

    Target Earth feels like a truly collective effort, one that sees riffs and rhythms repeat, liquefy, mutate and reform as new entities, with Snake’s characteristic delivery and lyrical imagery equally focused and defiant.

    The self-production here is a bit murky, maybe, and the drums and vocals have seen sharper days. But these dudes still turn sharp corners.

    If there were any doubts among the faithful about legendary Quebec prog-metal dudes Voivod being able to recapture the magic of their classic era in the absence of deceased guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour, they're shattered within moments of the title track.

    Target Earth is the speed, technicality and thrashy weirdness of the band's earliest album enveloped in a modern package that is also able to retain its own vibe and personality.

    Voivod have a hardcore following and for most, this much anticipated album will be received with adoration. For the rest of us, it's to be hoped that with relatively new bandmate in Mongrain, this is a transient moment before they head off to fight new battles.

    That Voivod have made a killer album is no surprise at all. The sounds they've pulled from the void, however as ever, are. [19 Jan 2013, p.54]

    Voivod have again recorded something that will appeal to those with an open mind. [Apr 2013, p.96]
