4 stars The third album from this band and the follow up to their breakthrough album Hubris.

Those who loved Hubris are in for some more of the same on Bani Ahead. That means music somewhere between eclectic prog, avant garde, zeuhl, canterbury and fusion/jazz. The main sound is jazz though. But the music is leaning a lot on the likes of Gentle Giant and King Crimson. Most of the music is as playful as a horse left alone on a field full of new wet grass. The cover art work is pretty much describing the music here. A prancing horse...... how fitting for the music on Bani Ahead.

The instrumentations is mostly violin and harmonica. And it is ages since I have heard harmonica being used to this great effect on an album. A vastly underused and undervalued instrument. Derek di Peri blows the wood out of his harmonica and is the star of this album. More, more, more !!!! The drums and the bass is brilliant too. The same can be said about the sound too.

Well, the real stars is the music on this album. An album which lacks the dot over the i, but is still a great album and one fans of eclectic and jazz should check out. An album which is actually better than Hubris and that says a lot.

4 stars
