|The Butterfly Effect chronology|
Imago is the second full-length album by the Brisbane band The Butterfly Effect. It was released on 17 June 2006. It debuted on the Australian ARIA album charts at number 2, the Butterfly Effect's first top 10 album and their highest charting album.
Sound and composition
The sound of "Imago" is much more progressive than the previous album and is less heavy as well. The album shows the band have all but lost their earlier nu-metal influences which has made them more popular. Clint Boge's vocals are also much more refined and as a result, his range is higher and more diverse than the previous releases.
The opener "Imago" is an instrumental track.
Release and promotion
The first single from Imago, titled "A Slow Descent", was released on 10 June 2006. It debuted at number 18 on the Australian Singles Chart, and in its second week rose to number 9, giving the Butterfly Effect their first top 10 single. The release was celebrated by hosting a signing at Skinny's Records in the band's hometown of Brisbane on the release date of the new album. Imago debuted at No.2 on the ARIA album charts, only narrowly beaten by local alternative rock group Eskimo Joe. After only nine weeks of release, it was certified gold for sales in excess of 35,000 copies.
