Today, I sit here with the daunting task of making this album appeal to you and unfortunately, I doubt I will be able to sway every one of you. The very thought of this record requires an open mind because most of you will cringe when I utter the term ‘ska-metal’, but I won’t lie to you – this album is very strange. Nevertheless, I challenge you to love this record the way I do.
My discovery of Ninjaspy was timely as it came hand in hand with my discovery of Between the Buried and Me‘s Colors. For most of us, Colors changed the way we see music. After Colors I left my elitism at the door; I started to look at the intention of music. No longer did I try and think about what music should be; I instead started to enjoy it for what it is. This allowed me to recognising Pi Nature as a masterpiece instead of dismissing it for what I would have thought to be a gimmick – and I couldn’t be more grateful. To this day, the first couple of times I listened to Pi Nature remain my most enjoyable musical experience. It was ethereal.
