2 stars Where do we go now?

The fifth studio album from New York jazz fusion quintet Frogg Cafe.

The Good: These guys used to be a Frank Zappa tribute band which is a pretty obvious influence on their music, but they are by no means a clone and there are some great songs to be found here such as Terra Sancta and From the Fence.

The Bad: However, where this album slips up is the half hearted attempt at avant-jazz noodling which takes up the majority of the album and seems to go on until the end of time. Don't get me wrong, I like musical meanderings as much as the next person, but when combined with its 77 minute running time, listening to this album just feels like a desperate trek through the desert in search of the next watering hole.

The Verdict: Good stuff until the sat-nav fell out the window.

Starhammer | 2/5 |
