Now, I'm not the most informed listener regarding Devin. I've heard samples of SYL and the Project and everything, but nothing ever captured me enough to dive in.

I've listened to a few tracks, the first two being released were a bit too much "all in" for me. I liked the "Spirits Will Collide" which had more focus along with the spiritual uplift. The video was cool. It's like what I imagine what a prog band would do if they were to play the Super Bowl half time show. Disney-rrific lyrics, sanitized for tween consumption. "Hear Me" was a more invigorating ride, obviously, due to the aggression and intensity, but I still don't find myself wanting to listen repeatedly. It sounds a bit like entering into the mind of a schizophrenic with a chaos of thoughts and associations.

I really respect the fact that he approached this project without limiting himself to one sound or style. I'm sure it's liberating, but I predict he will naturally tend towards something simpler and perhaps more subdued the next time around.
