2 stars At first listen this album sounded weird to my personal taste. It's probably that the music is composed in a single structure format so it sounds repetitive. It's like creating a highway as a main structure and lay all instrument solos in alternate way using the same highway structure. A good example is what the band offers with track like "Da Guadeloop" (7:03) where the main structure (the rhythm section) is a repetitive drum and bass guitar work that is played over and over. The only variation is with the solos that are put on top of this main structure: string arrangements with eastern nuance, guitars, etc. It applies the same with "Lonely Woman" (4:44) where it has one structure (repetitive bass guitar work) plus female vocals and saxophone work. It's too straightforward and so boring to my personal taste. This album is probably worth for fans / collectors only. Keep on proggin' ..!
