Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2003-10-05 
Quartet led by two guitarists, combining rock/fusion ideas with avant-garde sympathies Styles range from nearly Spanish acoustic guitar to slow-blazing blues-rock ... but the band stays in an "outside" mode throughout, playing off-kilter themes or dipping way beyond the changes. It's deceptively accessible and plenty weird.

1*- A fast rocking jam. Very cool burbly popping rhythm
2- Midtempo and mellow. Mixes pleasant melody with eerie atmosphere
3- Sneaky, midtempo
4- Acoustic interlude
5- Calmly paced acoustic hoedown
6- Slow cello soliloquy (probably guitar)
7*- Mid/fast evil low guitar jam
8*- Gentle country/blues; pretty
9+10 - Gregorian chant background, slow grumpy guitar weirdness
11- Acoustic; pleasantly melodic but abstract
12*- Blues-rock, sort of; mid/fast and rambling; weird sampled goodnight message
13*- Loud psych-rock!
