4 stars "Astronomy Made Easy" was BOUD DEUN's second album, the follow-up to "Fiction And Several Days" (1995). I'm astounded by BOUD DEUN's technically skills and their thrilling all-instrumental avant-garde compositions with odd rhythms, dissonant chord progressions and magnificent performances. And they have enough variation to keep up the listener's interest. Although the music seems rather unstructured, I get a feeling that it's actually well structured, just like FRANK ZAPPA's music used to be. Imagine a mixture between DIXIE DREGS, KANSAS (the violin-playing), KING CRIMSON (the "Red"-era), MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA and RETURN TO FANTASY. Unfortunately BOUD DEUN has split-up, but their music lives on. As the music is really intricate and challenging, I suppose that it's best appreciated by other musicians, but everyone who's into non-commercial music on the boundaries to jazz-fusion should like this album. Also listen to: BOUD DEUN "The Stolen Bicycle" from 1998.
