2 stars The second star is only for their live version of their music.

I saw this band live a few years ago at the Swamp Room Happening in Hannover (Mostly a Stoner Festival but featuring one or two nice psychedelic (semi-)Prog bands sometimes). That Gig, although being rather short really impressed me: Dynamic powerful psychedelic playing with solid synth work (Ozric-like) and a few interesting melodies. So I bought this CD with the hope to find this music on it. In the booklet it said that with the exception of don't look down and Fall Song (nice but a little plain to my taste) everything was composed and played spontanously. Another plus for that, but this doesn't work out well everytime. On this CD it doesn't. The It seems to sound very randomly to me (In a bad way... I am a huge fan of improvised music) with a little talking now and then. I can't enjoy the songs with talking on it We need to talk for instance has a kind of rapping on it while being kind of funky and monotone throughout. Later there is a voice which is very reminiscend of Frank Zappa. But having a voice like Zappa just don't make it Zappa.

I am very sorry guys of Burnt Noodle I like your approach to music but not this CD. I maybe will lend your second CD an ear in hope to find the music I heard live from you!
