3 stars Systematic chaos...

Although officially considered to be a John Zorn solo album, this 'Naked City' quintet went on to form the group of the same name.

The Good: This release pretty much defines the avant-jazz sub genre, combining numerous styles, random interludes and furious shredding breakdowns. There are some really great tracks to be discovered here, from the insane Snagglepuss, to the calmer, more atmospheric pieces such as the Ennio Morricone cover, The Sicilian Clan. The virtuoso musicianship throughout is undeniable.

The Bad: Call me a philistine, but whilst the the spasmic frenzies are fun at first, the unpleasantly grating saxophone can become a little tiresome after a while.

The Verdict: Definitely worth checking out, if only for the experience.
