Review by ssmarcusAnimals as Leaders eponymous debut album should be viewed as ground zero for modern progressive metal. Having nearly all the innovations and stylistic variations characteristic of new sounding prog metal released throughout the 2010's, Animals as Leaders set the benchmark for progressive metal greatness in the decade that followed.

For starters, the record incorporated a level of technical complexity in the riffs and song writing previously unheard of outside of the dark underworld of technical death metal. The previous generation of prog metal guitar gods, guitarists like Michael Romeo and John Petrucci, tended to showcase the extent of their technical abilities only in dedicated solos or instrumental passages within the songs or albums while keeping the intros, verses, and choruses relatively simplistic. Tosin not only threw this convention out the window, he demonstrated that making good rhythmic and melodic hooks can be achieved through highly technical playing.

The record also makes extensive use of electronic backing tracks to create more full harmony sections, jazz guitar methods and chord progressions, and djenty-Meshuggah-like riffage. There's a lot more to be said on technical level about what to expect from this music but I believe the items mentioned thus far give the listener enough of a sense of how this record inspired so much of what followed.
