5 stars The album begins with a beautiful high pitched hippie folk song, Boris and his Three verses. Without warning, the song ends and shifts in an awesome transition into very progressive territory. By the first ten seconds of "Flow Guides aren't my Bag", you'll realize what this band is really about. From this point forward, the music is fast, the musicianship is astounding, and you'll be blown away by the complexity. Despite this, you can still hang on to the tunes, and they remain quite memorable after listening.

Following the epic intensity of "Flow Guides Aren't My Bag", there is a short bluegrass song, "Texas Armadillo". About half way through this song, all the instruments speed up to crazy speeds, enough to get anyone caught up in the Americana intensity.

The next song, "3, Almost 4, 6 Yea", Is another venture into complex speedy awesomeness, and brings the first side to a very sudden end, in the best way possible.

The Second side consists of two ten minute tracks. Just as strong as the first side, but a harder of a listen. Basically more American progressive rock to make your ears explode with joy.

By the end of this album, you might need a minute to process what you've just listened to. In the end, this unappreciated gem should be ranked among the more popular prog rock bands, such as Genesis, Gentle Giant, and Jethro Tull.
