4 stars Unorthadox Behaviour is an album that I have only experienced this last year and Morrocan Roll and Livestock the only albums to have properly enjoyed by Brand X previously. Whilst Morrocan Roll is a superb album it is still not as good as this excellent release. Percy Jone's fretless bass work is exemplary, the drumming from Collins just so intricate and mesmerizing. Again incredible that such a talented musician could play such versatile and extreme styles of music over the decades.

Simply put all the tracks are pedigree off UB but the best of breed would have to be ' Nuclear Burn', ' Born Ugly' and the short and sweet ' Touch Wood' After careful analysis I would have to rate this album slightly higher than Morrocan Roll. It is near masterpiece material, firmly endorses itself within the british family of the Fusion genre and the exciting fact is there is still more to experience out of the Brand X catalogue. Four and a half stars is a sure thing for this essential release. The talent produced from Goodsall/Collins/Lumley and Jones is dumbfounding to say the least.
