3 stars This is my first Djam Karet disc. I'm very impressed by their ability to sound like many others, yet sound like no on else. The music is muscular and a certain visciousness runs through each track. This would be a great soundtrack for a riot or warehouse fire. A certain controlled violence and premeates each tune. I place the blame strictly on the drums of Chuck Oken Jr.He plays with such force and wild abandon on each tune that you would expect that he goes through drum heads faster than a wino could down a pint of thunderbird. Strong melodies, crafty musicianship. "Dream Portal" is very Satriani like in it's melody, however contains more depth and spontaneity. Scary Circus is an adept title for the song, with whirling carrousel keyboards and frightening solos. The Falafel King has Eastern tones, and the Red Thread harkens to the Red era King Crimson. Much of Djam Karet's music is heavily influenced from KC's mid '70's format. Good mayhem music.
