Prog Reviewer
5 stars "Book M" is just one of the all time greatest avant-prog albums. On it Secret Chiefs 3 serves up a meal that was made by just plain smashing through barriers, mixing genres in ways that were before unheard of. Traditional Middle Eastern, electronica, heavy prog rock, prog metal, and even resemblances to heavy hip hop and dancehall beats, all of these take turns blowing your mind. The music is manic, fast, and complex, putting your friend's tech death garage band to shame. And it is all masterfully constructed and played. The result is an album that never lets up until the band just runs out of ideas, and then knows to pull out their preprepared grand finale. Listening to this record is like putting yourself in the middle of the crock pot the band used to cook up this delicious magnum opus, this soup of genres and styles and inspiration. It's hot, it's spicy, and it is wonderful. Try dancing to it! At the least, do yourself a massive favour and try this homecooked masterpiece. You won't regret it. You may yet even play it on repeat all day.
