5 stars These guys need to be experienced live, period. I saw them this summer and they blew me away. It was only an hour set but they stood out against the others at the big summer classic. They have a heavy metal intensity with chill vibes and long jams. They are possibly the best touring band right now and are making huge strides in the jam band genre with innovations galore. With that said, its usually risky to get a studio album from a band like Umphreys or phish or SCI, who emphasize the shows more than the studio. But this is a really a good cd with precise playing. They mix in so many genres: straight up rock, prog, heavy metal, jazz, but jam band is at the forefront. I heard they study tapes of shows much like a coach would do for games. It defiantly seems that way from the few shows I have downloaded off archives as they seem to expand and improve in leaps and bounds....and very quickly at that. Pick up what is sure to be one of the best jam band cds..of the decade!
