3 stars This is fairly standard guitar based jazz rock fusion. The songs mostly alternate between loud and soft, fast and slow. The compositions are mostly simple melodic four four compostions. So while this is fusion, and therefore gets a listing here, it isn't terribly progressive. And for a band called Gamelon, there is a surprising lack of, well, gamelon.

Which isn't to say there is nothing to listen to here. Some of the pieces, by way of syncopation, manage to sound more complex than they actually are. And the last two songs, Aerial View and Relapse, manage to actuall use seven four and seven eight time signatures respectively.

So this isn't the best album by this band, but it's not too bad.

Evolver | 3/5 |
