4 stars This is a surprisingly complex and restless music. There are some rock, funky, jazzy and even symphonic influences involved. The warm rhythm is absolutely omnipresent. The keyboards are quite elaborated: there is an overdose of Fender Rhodes (electric piano), and some fat clavinet parts really steal the show. The comparison with Brand X, Return to forever and Frank Zappa is not completely deprived of sense, but the style here is more hard rock/blues oriented, and less complex. The music is the opposite of relaxing linear floating notes: it is rather nervous. Beck's guitar is absolutely delightful with his numerous hard rock'n bluesy solos full of good effects, featuring a "talking guitar" among others. However, the typical Beck's zigzagging sound full of fast tremolos is noticeable here only on a couples of tracks, including "Cause we've ended as lovers". The drums and bass are very sophisticated.
