Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-06-13
Mainstream stuff led by formerly local guitarist Harrison. Accessible and tuneful stuff with a mellow sheen, but Harrison isn't afraid to let his players cut loose a bit (1,2). He (or possibly fellow guitarist Nguyen Le) seems to like that rock-hero guitar sound, which can be a bit of a minus, but the overall atmosphere works. With Dave Binney on sax. Instrumental; FCC clean.

1- Midtempo, easy feel, into a faster crazy guitar/drums space and a fast droney sax solo.
2- Darkly loping mid/fast. Slow burning rock guitar solo
3- Fast toe-tapper, based on Messaien's "Quartet for the End of Time." Intense soloing space.
4- Darkly pretty midtempo, builds to an intense swirl
5- Delicate intro, like cheesy soundtrack music. Gets into a more substantial swingy rhythm and some stronger melody.
6- Lyrical, soft melody. Mid/fast but a relaxed feel.
7- Strange mysterious feel, strong slowish beat. Indian-tinged guitar solo, then a crashing electric barrage.
8- Kind of a big dramatic sound, mid/fast. Energetic.
