4 stars A super group of the new millenium (well of the late millenium), who cares, is a great album from 3 masterminds. Everybody micht think that the egos could clash and end up in tragedy or a very bad album, however, is a jewel, 13 songs of pure weirdness and muscicallity. Here we might find a lot of "trademarks" and is obvious, but those are blended with each other, making a very enjoyable record. Some songs like "little faces" and "shadow of a man" are a lot more influenced by CLAYPOOL, and some others like "owner of the world" and "rubberneck lions" are more influenced by ANASTASIO, some are anchor points like "polka dot rose" and pseudo suicide". The importance of the record goes sometimes beyond the music by itself, but the return to the drummer seat of master Stewart Copeland, the so called "return of the jedi" beacuse of his abscence for almost 13 years as a leading drummer. Of course is not an easy record, but a very rewarding one. For those who want to experiment and go a little bit further.
