Your Imaginary Friend described this as “part prog, part experimental” and it really seems to fit that descripition, it’s one of those odd things that’s akin to a more arcane albums by jazz-fusion artist, John Scofield or some long lost meditative jams by Fripp & Eno. In other words jazzy, ambient & experimental, makes for great soundbeds.
(((1))) Repetitive but this odd ambient, jazz guitar & light electronic noodlings. It gets interesting if you let it just go for a few minutes.
(((2))) OK, this one’s REALLY proggy, lots of PFM-like drum fills, random almost heavy metal guitar strangling. Straddling the line between Mahavishnu Orchestra, John Scofield, Fripp, and Brand X.
((3)) Starts off very quiet & ambient like a distant UFO floating over a field of crickets while Alex Lifeson sits by the pond, strumming quietly thinking “hmm...what chords should I use for ‘Fountain of Lameth?’ (2112 nerd points if you get that).
(((4))) More weird uh, ‘buggery’, like a mosquito flying around an amplifier & some random sax and warbling ambience floats around. Something like The Orb by way of late 70’s era Gong. Overall, ambient + jazz.
(5) Odd glitchy thing but sounding kind of like a slo-mo version of that big Westbam hit/Levi’s commercial tune from 1999.
(((6))) Sounds a bit like a take on Coil’s “How To Destroy Angels” but via an experimental jazz drum solo, if that makes ANY sense at all.
((7)) Very slow moving jazz & slow noodling, the tonalities sound like Bill Frissell mostly. A little too much of the ‘look how much I can experiment & get all minimal on your ass’ sounds.
(((8))) More UFO sightings er...”hearings” and more jazz cymbal & drum action, some pretty cool ambience.
(((9))) Ambient-dub like sounds with some repetitive horn parts, and well, repetitive everything else. Nowhere near as interesting as Bill Laswell & co.’s work in this realm.
