5 stars The long awaited successor to one of my favorite albums ever. Overall, 'multipurpose trap' is pretty similar to 'Bantam to Behemoth', but has definitely evolved. The sound of this album is incredibly unique. Sometimes its sort of reminiscent of zeuhl, and at other times reminiscent of avant-prog. It almost reminds me of Frank Zappa at some points with its touch of whimsicalness (I have no idea if that's an actual word). But trying to say who this sounds like is pointless, because it's very different from any other band I've heard. It's very jazzy, very chaotic, and the musicianship is incredible. I think the album slows down a bit as it progresses, which is nice as it gives your mind a break from the chaos of the shorter songs from the first half like 'dumb fish' and 'miracle pigeon'. 'Catapult' reminds a lot of 'Birds Flying Into Buildings' from the first album. 'Aviatore Prosco' and 'Abominable Pelican' are a tad bit more easy going and even get a bit disco-ish. The later song is real weird. REAL weird, but highly enjoyable. People who are familiar with Dan Britton's other work know the singing is always the weakest aspect, but this time it is vastly improved and actually sounds pretty damn cool. Fans of Birds and building's previous album should be very pleased. 4.98 stars.
