4 stars You know that rare feeling you get when occasionally you hear a piece of music that just slays you from note one and has you literally shouting, "YEAH!" and reminding you why you really love music? The first track from this album was one of those moments for me. The very first thing I ever heard by GYBE! was "Moya." If I used anything other than "awed," I'd be lying. I cannot describe it. Just trust me and hunt down this album. "Moya" alone is worth it. Now, "BBF3" (as it is sometimew written in short-hand) is no slouch either. However, it takes many listens to appreciate. GYBE! loves to add samples of found-sound into the mix, which usually is great. In this case, they interviewed a nutcase who thinks he's a policital revolutionary. The music is really background for his interview. The funny thing is that he has this poem he performs at open mics, but the poem is almost a verbatim citing of "Virus" by Iron Maiden. Ha! Also, note that while tracked seperately, the whole EP is really one 30 minute piece.
