Review: Music crashes in waves, then slides back & forth, constantly engaging and challenging the listener. The music builds on repetitive patterns then takes us into new realms
If You Like: King Crimson’s “Red”, Sun Ra, Slowdive, Porcupine Tree, Phillip Glass
Track Review (favorites denoted by*):
*1/ A Puncher’s Chance (3:10) – guitar starts> heavy midtempo pounding jam with repetitive riff> short space jam> jam> quick stop
2/ Depredation (5:32) - synths open into slow pounding jam with synth interplay> morphs into heavy drums/bass midtempo jam with repetitive riff that builds in intensity & volume then freaks out into off-kilter space jam> frenetic feedback guitar solo> fade
*3/ Annica (9:05) – piano/synths start> slow plodding repeating jam builds in volume & intensity> slow space jam> piano solo> full band slow heavy jam> fade
*4/ Badalamenti (6:54) – piano/synth starts> heavy uptempo space jam with rocking guitar> short drum solo> full bore heavy rocking jam morphs into uptempo piano duet> quick stop
5/ Cry Box (6:20) – piano starts> slow jam with jarring interruptions> heavy sonic guitar jam> heavy distorted bass solo> full band blast slows to slow space jam> fade
*6/ The Memory Of My Memory (10:18) – synth starts with slow long drawn out notes> slow jam with piano up front & electronics washing in the back morphs into slow space jam then slides into heavy metal pounding rock jam> drum solo swells into frenetic uptempo rock jam over repetitive drum coda> quick stop
7/ Veiled (4:23) – high-pitched electronic noise starts> midtempo jam with scattered electronics> piano solo> quick stop
8/ Episode 8 (14:29) - drum solo starts> uptempo electronic rocking jam quickly slows to slow space jam> shifts to fast tempo rock jam> lightning fast drum solo slides into funky noisy heavy rock jam with repetitive riff> sonic guitar solo> heavy uptempo jam with new repetitive riff slides into midtempo space jam> slow fade
