Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-01-21 
Abstract improvisations on rock instruments including guitar. Tracks start slow and improvvy, often building into a big loud sound that tends to become just a blur, an almost hypnotic effect (cf. Pat Metheney's "Zero Tolerance for Silence.")

1- Big loud fuzzy blast
2- Gets into proggy noodling, sounds almost like a synth
3- Calmer burbling, but still high energy. Hits some loud points, then some aggressive guitar noodling in the last 5 minutes.
4- Short standalone track. A more coherent jumble.
