Album Review

Reviewed 2007-03-01
Prog not chops. David Torn like Strat work over
synth beats. Koch on guitar provides most of
the melodies over ex-Utopia synther Powell.
This is a rock album with a bit of jazz sense.
Most is dance, though the textures can be
sparse and there is not always a beat at the start.
Coupla short paino pieces.

*1) mellow rhythmic build to brief guitar schredd
**2) robotic groove funk, radioactive guitar
3) snappy groove, modern beats but 60s feel
4) nightclub, smooth, bit of guitar lead
5) traded guitar lead, hipop beat
6) gentle (lose the drums , dude)
**7) spacy, industrial tiktok (distance), good title for it
8) piano 1 min
9) snappy, rhythmic, blandly heavenly
*10) 70s Miles feel, driving jazz with trumpet
11) fast Arabic melody, hipopd
12) fast electro hoedown
13) thoughtful wah guitar over drone
14) relaxing, easy listen
15) smooth jazz piano 1min
