4 stars This is one wild , spastic ride of an album which is very good in technical terms and also in creativity. Crazy vocal shouts , spastic drum runs and bass licks. You very rarely would be able to decipher what they say in their lyrics because it sounds more like noises. It might take an eclectic listener to like and appreciate this music because the band likes to stir up tight chaos with their music . The albums styles and influences are all over the place . But keep in mind,this is abstract prog. Also known as being un-normal and strange . These virtousos have enough chops to even play sped up versions of Mahavishnu Orchestra tunes and passages all glued together in one track which is only around two minutes long but blinding in speed and accuracy. This album has traces of standard prog , but owes most to jazz fusion,punk,Magma and to their own abstract genius. It's an essential release, especially within their own catalogue. Some of their older releases may scare you away.
