Sympozion - Kundabuffer  CD (album) cover




Jazz Rock/Fusion

3 stars Sympozion combines Gentle Giant with Zappa, Steve Reich with computer games, 80's King Crimson with Canterbury sound & arrangements. The production is very good (sound enginner: Udi Koomran), and some of the compositions are highly complex. These guys like using counterpoint melodies, sometimes 4-5 melody lines at once.

If you like the Baroque-influenced progressive rock with some nice jazzy touches - something between National Health and Philarmonie, you might want to have this.

The album doesn't rock very hard - the arrangments are usually soft, excluding some sound effects here and there, added to add some texture. It's pretty intellectual stuff, for people who like their math-rock complicated with odd time signatures and intertwined melodies.

It's a good album, and in Israeli (local) terms it's pretty unique, but will appeal to a small crowd of hard proggers with jazz inclinations.
