4 stars Three people make for a herd? How about if they throw in a few guests?

One of the herd of three is a Warr guitarists so no surprise they have a King Crimson-y sound and not too unlike Djam Karet, either, which often does the KCish thing well as well. The two opening tracks Transformation and Room Without Shadows are intense complex instrumental compositions. The trio alone (a duo on Transformation) pretty much fill out the sound canvas, but they also play well with others. This album is mostly an instrumental affair except for one vocal track and one vocal sample track.

Most of the other tracks feature guests including Jerry Marotta, Pat Mastelotto, Gavin Harrison, and Gayle Ellett. Gayle, of course being from Djam Karet and this album is on the new DK label Firepool Records. Steve Tibbetts even shows up in the form of percussion and guitar samples from his "Friendly Fire" sample library.

Those of you who were disappointed with A Scarcity Of Miracles in 2011 should have bought this album instead.
