4 stars Here is my review of ''Four Letter Monday Afternoon''... CD1 opens with L.S.B.(17:37), which is a jazz rocker,with a bit of free-jazz thrown in between the 4:30 and 5:00 mark. At the five minute mark, there are some sound effects which sound like bombs going off,and some flute/keyboard work comes into play between the 6 and 7.5 minute mark. Things pick back up again at almost 8 minutes,and the tempo slows down again at the 10 minute mark.The tempo does not pick up again until about 12 minutes to the song's end. The vocal's do not come into play until about 13:30...The chorus parts seem to soar! A great way to kick off the cd! ''When I'm Sleeping''(4'04) is a steady beat with some keyboard work thrown in. ''Tsajama''(9'23) starts out with a 30 second flute solo before the music kicks in and eventually gains momentum, with some great sax work as well!The rhythm gets heavy during the last 1'23 of the song. ''Black Cards''(9'38) is another great song, which starts out with some flute and drum work, before picking up. ''Where Have You Been''(5'35) is an acoustic ballad. CD2 has the songs "Huchen 55,A (9'19),Huchen 55,B''(14'32) and Huchen 55,C''(24'18),which all begin and end with flute work. The tempo's vary from slow to moderate, and can seem boring at times. But nevertheless..A great cd.
