Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-06-28 
Bar-band rock crossed with twisty prog/jazz writing. Deliciously blazing and bluesy, even.

Definite rock energy here; a particular treat is the harmonica, played in a hybrid of blues and free jazz to give the session that dusty backroads-bar sound. Strong beats, mid/fast tempos, loud rock blaring (even though it's sax and harmonica leading the melody), twisty odd time signatures, and some wild-ass solos (1,12). Liebig fuzzes out his bass for some guitar-hero antics here and there. Loads of instrumental fun; play it all. FCC clean.

1- Mid/fast with some crazy harmonica; 6/8 time
2- Rockin' bass intro, into driving midtempo rock
3- Rolling, *very* vaguely Indian feel under boppin' sax. Mid/fast.
4- Funky but in odd time (10/8?), kinda prog/blues/rock. Cool!
5- Fast; tricky pinpoint dancing feel. Still rocks, though.
6- Slow, spare, disjoint
7- Slowish, w/blazing gut-punching sax solo
8- Halting, Eastern-meditation feel, in a brash way
9- Slowish country loping
10- Mid/fast, very strong beat
11- Midtempo "crime jazz," fun and bouncy
12- Strong bluesy feel, mid/fast and loud, *crazy* soloing
13- Short free-jazzy statement, energetic
