Devin Townsend is possibly one of the most unique and ambitious musicians of all time. And if there’s anyone who could create an album that gives fans “a feeling for a variety of musical emotions” all the while making 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,” it’s Hevy Devy. So did Devin succeed with those goals on his new solo album “Empath”?

That’s what Matt and Zach determine in Epic Footnote Productions’ “2 Minutes to Review,” a podcast that’s part album review and part competition. In each episode, both hosts are given two minutes each to review a newly released album, a recent reissue, or a record they’re revisiting after years of going unlistened. Whoever gives the longest review in under two minutes wins.
