4 stars A lot of long time DON CABALLERO fans find this one too melodic which is maybe why I like it so much. It's all-instrumental as usual and we get the dual guitars with bass and drums filling out the sound.

"Mmmmm Acting, I love Me Some Good Acting" opens with some great sounding guitar then it kicks in heavily with lots of bottom end.The guitar comes and goes throughout. "Sure We Had Knives Around" opens with drums as the guitar is picked over top. Some amazing drum work here (as per usual). Great sound after 2 minutes and I like the bass when it settles after 2 1/2 minutes. "And And And, He Lowered The Twin Down" opens with guitar as the drums pound their way in.This is great ! I like when the higher pitched guitar sounds come in after 2 minutes. "I Agree...No !...I Disagree" opens with some fantastic bass then the drums and guitar join in. Deep bass lines before 2 minutes as well. It turns experimental sounding a minute later.

"Palm Trees In The Fecking Bahamas" is a catchy beat driven tune. I like when the guitar rips it up. "World Class Listening Problem" again has some prominant guitar as the drums pound. It does settle before 2 1/2 minutes but kicks back in quickly. Nice drum outro. "Railroad Cancellation" builds and I like when it settles before 3 minutes. It's so uplifting. "Theme from Bricktop Clowns" is a short experimental piece. "Savage Composition" is drum dominated early. It's catchy then it turns heavier after 1 1/2 minutes. It settles back before 3 1/2 minutes. "I'm Goofballs For Bozzo Jazz" opens with Fripp-like intricate guitar as flurries of drums come and go.The bass is prominant a minute in. Cool track.

For me this a 4 star record and it would be a good place to start for someone wanting to hear their sound.
