Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-06-10 
Instrumental rock jams with a psychedelic bent, including steady beats and lots of ghostly guitar effects. A bit lo-fi. Tracks are short, mostly 2 or 3 minutes, but pack in tons of instruments for a dense wash of sound.

Many tracks segue badly. Check endings before playing!

1- Mid/slow jam beat. Choppy guitar and didgeridoo-sounding thing
*2- Cool and loungy, mid/fast
3- Faux-Asian clatter with echoey sax calls
*4- Fast complex drums
5- Techno tribute, with fast drums and random synth noises
6- Mysterious "world" feel... hand drums of a quiet alien cult
7- Disjoint, with screeching sounds (a saxophone?)
8- Lingering flute-like whistles
9- Abrasive guitars. Churning midtempo beat
10- Spacey and sparse
11- Off-kilter thumping, loud and stumbling
*12- Gentle pulse and small guitar solo
*13- Breezy in a brash way; jangly two-chord prog
14- Slowish and twangy, an avant-cowboy sunset
15- Mid/slow and warbly, very much a jam
16- Dissonant, crashing beat. Short.
17- Fast percussion clatter, an exotic marketplace. Short.
*18- Gloopy fun beat. Slashy guitar that gets aggressive
19- BIG and anthemic, after quiet start
