4 stars A fine album. Real fine playing by fantastic musicians, but it fails to intrigue you like their previous effort: "Third." Teeth is a remarkable track though, mixing in Psychedelia with some groovy free jazz & "Bitch's Brew-esqe" electronic keyboards, a fantastic composition by keyboardist: Mike Ratledge. Kings & Queens is a typical jazz track, very cool, but does not enthrall my attention very long though. Flectcher's Blemish is actually a favorite of mine & is basically a free jazz track. Virtually parts 1 through 4 should of been just one track. I like this one very much, a good Hopper composition that's bold & maintains consistency.

Overall a very good album, but not a good starter point, become familiar & acquainted with Third & then check out the further releases.
