5 stars I'd like to preface this review by saying that this is more of a fusion band/album than crossover, but there are so many genres that make an appearance that it's hard to call this album just fusion. If you've ever wanted to hear an album that has so many genres represented, this is where you should start

This septet (comprised of bass, drums, guitar, viola, sax, trumpet, and vocals) is fresh and bends the definition of genres like I've never heard. Seriously, give this album (or either of their other two masterful albums) and tell me that you can't hear a million genres, such as folk, flamenco, jazz, Eastern music, or just prog. This album is more balanced than their previous releases, giving more room to breathe between the sheer bombast presented by many of the tracks. (Think of this as "Frances the Mute" (The Mars Volta) and "Stranger Heads Prevail" as "Deloused in the Comatorium".) My only complaint with this album is that it is a bit on the long side, but if you have 84 minutes to sit down and listen to music, you won't regret listening to this.
