Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2002-09-13
Free improv propelled by Oxley's fluidly hyperactive percussion, and colored well by Pat Thomas on piano. Squeaky violin and some sampling are in there too.

Overall it's good aggressive work, fast-paced even in the quiet spots. The sampling isn't 100% successful, though -- the sampled vocals on #3 are just distracting, for instance.

Oxley plays fast with a light touch, adding all kinds of rapid-fire thumps and clinks that fill space nicely. Thomas' piano adds a more propulsive element, as well as keeping things musical.
