5 stars Incredible music. The intro from the first song is memorable(not the same style but the same level as for Supertramp's Crime of the Century or Return to Forever - Return to forever).Such a song it may hunt you many days. One of the best efforts from the last years. It may be hard to get in but definitely will became one of your favorites if will give it a try. Really hard to mention a highlight because all the songs are at very high level. One thing is clear: the man behind the drums, Jon Theodore, knows what he is doing. The sax sounds like improvising which is really nice. Overall I would say that every decade has his own masters and for the '00 years this is definitely representative. The sound is distinct with a specific Latino odour. Of course the influences can be felt but this album has for sure a distinctive personality. Interesting combination and coherency having in mind that some of the songs were composed before the band started to work for this release. The cover it wasn't created for this album but represents a picture of Jeff Jordan which is an American surrealist painter. The picture is called Big Mutant. A really good album cover which can easily abides on somebody's mind.
