Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-08-03 
Funk/fusion with a light touch. Upbeat, grooving stuff with lots of organ and electric bass. Melodies get into that soaring feeling that '70s fusion had. A bit slick and "ultra-modern" sometimes -- with heavyhanded touches like extra keyboards and hip beat-box drumming -- but well done. Instrumental; FCC clean.

Flea plays bass on 5,10,11

1- Intro blip, just one minute long.
2- Mid/fast; happy upbeat feel. Interesting, stumbly intro.
3- Short jam with cool liquidy backwards-synth bubbles
4- Breezily mid/fast. Hip, swingy sax solo enhanced with electronic harmonizer. Dig the prog/fusion keys at the end.
5- Fast funk, heavy chugging feel. Zeppelin cover.
6- Pretty and soulful; gets cooking with an airy nostalgic groove
7- Gritty urban funk, midtempo
8- Ornette classic, with eerie electronic scrim and beat-box drums. Gets spacey in spots.
9- Fast and light funk/fusion, a tad breezy, nice energy. Crisp but cheesy rock-hero guitar later.
10- Slow, moody, cavernous. A two-minute interlude.
11- Mid/fast popping electric, light funk.
12- Bluesy midtempo, a cool-down feel saturated in organ chords. Some nicely intricate two-horn soloing w/Nicholas Payton
13- Outro blip, reprise of 1. Just one minute long.
