3 stars Chon are a young band out to make what can best be described as the math equivalent of power prog, forging an album of almost all instrumentals that are warm, energetic, and a joy to listen to, though in the manner that one enjoys snacks. They jam with skill and create a fine product, though there isn't so much to most of it, and suggest a band that has not just room to, *ahem*, grow, but also a need to. But the record is nice and a start. Heading into the second half, they have moments where they strengthen the sound with heavier portions. "Can't Wait" and "Echo" diversify things a bit with vocals, but the change of pace is mitigated by the fact that said vocals are by far the weakest part of the album. Overall, though, it's good, and the closer, "But", manages to be very interesting. We'll see what the future holds for this band.
