Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2002-07-31 
Improv feel, near jazz w/ horns but guitar based, not much vocalizations, definitely arty. Not so much “experimental” but elements are present. Mostly instrumental, vocals are understated/abstract if present at all. Lots of quiet/loud, start/stop contrasts. Cool and strange. Do Make Say Think, Biota.

Disc 1
1) everyone crashing together free jazz style, stop go
2) rather hypnotic repetitive horn scales, tones down to reveal mindful trippy jam
3) tribal feel, minimal vocs enter 5 min in
4) disjunct smattering of improv things, mostly slow mellow but contrasted w/ faster crazy things
5) sparse feel w/ looping feel, strange minimal voice, loud crashes here and there after 3+ min, then after 6+ minutes a tribal feeling full on jam breaks out, congas and tom heavy, melodic w/ horns, retards long and slow to end, strange
6) upbeat tarzan conga feel, strangely dissonant

Disc 2:
1) slow mellow trippy-pretty start slowly builds to understated vocs and crashes
2) mostly mellow feel, cool rhythmic improv feel
3) radio sample built upon w/ lo-fi recording and noise
4) strange eastern European folk feel, hand organs, banjo thingys, very Biota’esque
5) brief continuation
6) mellow slow arpeggio ballady w/ vocs, drums join midway, turns hypnotic
