5 stars The recipe stays pretty much the same for the album; keyboards, guitar, violin, trumpet, flugelhorn, trombone patterns thread their way through piles of shredded, hyperactive beats. Again, the melodic writing owes much to a rarified strain of jazz rock rather than anything else; Soft Machine or Frank Zappa's Grand Wazoo spring to mind. With a sound as distinctive and fully formed as this, it'd be unrealistic to expect too much change this time around, but there are subtle shifts in emphasis. The rhythmic and melodic shifts on this record are incredibly deft, so that when you get started, you are completely on board with the brain-dance of it? Excellent work .
