Track Review (favorites denoted by *):
1/ Of Royal Hering (8:04) – drone starts slow & quiet & slowly builds, percussion & bass jump in & build to midtempo jam> melody shift to skittering jam with piccolo up front> swings into wild uptempo jam with contrabass sounding like a Theremin, like a herd of stampeding elephants> quick stop
*2/ Quasimodo (3:58) – sound objects played as percussion start> uptempo swirling jam with piano up front> slows to slow tempo with cello & bass clarinet> fade
3/ Nistru (9:55) – cello/piano start> slow jam with flute up front with pastoral vibe> slowly builds to midtempo jam with wild clarinet sounding like a flock of geese> swings uptempo in a frenetic wild jam> slows to slow jam with vocal & flute> slow fade
**4/ Waiting For Prey (6:32) – bass/ percussion starts hesitatingly like a cautious animal weaving through a forest> slow jam with muted animal-like sounds & bird-like cries, slowly more animals awaken> slows to muted percussion/bass with an expectant vibe> fade
*5/ Stollin’ A Reef (4:17) – bass/ flute/percussion starts> midtempo jam like strolling along a beach with seagulls overhead with piccolo up front & percussion making wave-like sounds> flute solo to fade
*6/ Improvisation (5:10) – flute starts> slow jam slowly builds in tempo with bass like a sandpiper running across the sand> midempo soft jam with flute up front slowly builds in volume> fade
7/ Tamago (5:27) – heavy piano chords start intermittently with flute over the top> heavy percussion joins> bass joins & solos over the top> slow jam with instruments trading riffs> stop
*8/ The Egg Jam Encore (4;38) – drone starts> midtempo jam with piccolo up front slowly builds to uptempo jam with jaw harp up front> builds in volume> fade
