Elements brings more of a return to song structure. At first listen, I was very dismayed to discover that Steve Flynn had departed the band, but over time, began to appreciate the incredible tightness of the band on this album. Basically 8 songs with four interludes (one a salsa track!), Elements is rhythmically complex, again due to the tightness of session drummer Josh Greenbaum. Tony Choy, who left both Cynic and Pestilence to join full time, is heard clearly through excellent production. Although not as challenging as their earlier material, Elements is a good album which is light years more mature and accessible. Sadly, this was their swan song, as the group disbanded shortly after the release of the album
