Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2005-10-04
Kind of a world/jazz/electronica mesh, created by two guys using lots of samples and loops. Most tracks are catchy and simple, with busy beats over slowish themes -- often building into frenzied solos. Lots of sax/trumpet treated with electronics for some interesting sounds. Sometimes they try a bit too hard, going overboard on the fast/loud angle, but it's a good effort overall.

1- Catchy sax riff, starts kind of chill. Buils into warbly, treated horn soloing.
2- Mid/fast beat with "straight" but furious sax soloing. Kind of a "hit single" track, with the least amount of electronics treatments on here.
3- Funky stomp, becomes an aggressive blur
4- Thundering doom drums, mid/fast.
5- Calm melodies & strong beat. Second half dissolves into noisy chaos.
6- Windswept Persian blip (90 seconds long)
7- Pleasant two-chord ring with bubbling drums and (later) a towering sax solo
