4 stars Adrian Belew continues his later age creative renaissance with Flux by Belew Volume One. These are short snippets that range from folky to crunchy guitar to cabaret to a Ventures copy to everything in between. I love music like this and this record has reinforced my belief Adrian Belew belongs on the Mount Rushmore of accessible left field rock wierdness of which his former boss Frank Zappa has the largest bust. Singularly creative and decidedly non-conforming, Belew adds to his incredibly rich musical legacy. Fans of left field ideosyncratic rock will find a ton to like here, and this is a fine place to enter the solo world of a living master. I wish Belew got as much run with the media as Iggy Pop during his career-for some reason I put them in the same category as mad scientist weirdo geniuses

Dinosaur in my Trees is an excellent short goofy one here with great scrunching guitar accents
