4 stars Second album from MMW "Radiolarians" trilogy is as good as previous one. You will find there all best components this trio is know about. Groovy and funky vintage tunes, with plenty of keys and bass. Extremely melodic, not over produced or too complex, but catching you very soon.

Even if similar to the first trilogy's album, this work is more acoustic, more jazzy, more funky. Let say, in their non-traditional nu jazz mix musicians put more jazz, fusion and funk traditional sound. So I believe this album possibly is the best entrance to Trilogy for newcomer.

With their easy accessible music, always pleasant tunes, never boring diversity of musical components in their musical mixture, band with all "Radiolarians" trilogy confirmed their position as one of US nu jazz leaders.

I can recommend this album for any jazz fusion lover interested in newest genre's trends. Pleasant and accessible work, but not so simple as it looks sometimes from the surface.
