Album Review
Mandy Khoshnevisan
Reviewed 2004-02-23
Like it says on the front, old school prog rock. All instrumental; sax, bass, guitar, electric organ, occasional piano. Sound is wild and jazzy and tense, mostly; few chords are resolved, and everyone’s got plenty of energy. Middle of the tracks often involve everyone soloing at once.

*1. *(3:34) starts right in crazy fast, then hits a groove; fast little melodic motif—lots of elec. organ and crazy sax
*2. *(6:22) strutting tempo drum & bass groove, guitar, sax, bit more disciplined and jazzy—at first
3. (4:03) lone distorted guitar for 30 sec, then solid midtempo groove; guitar heavy
4. (3:07) fast and burbly, elec organ, like something bad might happen to Super Mario
*5. *(9:02) halting haunting elec. intro; melodic, slow, sparser, changes a lot; kinda creepy
*6. *(4:08) smoky midtempo groove, steady winding melody. Slows; then piano solo.
*7. *(3:05) fast/midtempo, jaunty melody
8. (3:36) frantic elec. guitar. Kind of a reprise of track 1; same motif, but sounds later; with acoustic piano cascading in.
*9. *(7:10) sitar-sounding guitar (?), tranquil acoustic. Rest of band comes in with melody; even-tempered triumph. Goes back quiet at end.
