4 stars Frogg Cafe from USA and their second offer Creatures released in 2003 is among my fav albums ever. Intricate, beautiful and smooth eclectic side of jazz with memorable arrangements. When I heared for the first time this album, I gues 5-6 years ago I was instantly hooked on their music, is so demanding, intellingent with passages that needs big attention with a wide fariety of influences from Gentle Giant, Happy the Man, Echolyn in places, even Zappa or Steely Dan, but the result is fantastic. The musicians plays with an amazing ease, for ex the first two pieces are absolutly killer and the best tunes Frog Cafe ever done, All this time and title track Creatures. Very complicated guitar parts, great voice, elegant and with smooth passages remind me a lot of Steely Dan albums from the'70s that sophisticated but yet accesible jazz. Even some symphonic prog moments to be found here specialy on the longest track . Waterfall Carnival but melted so well with jazz elements. So, one of the strongest albums ever coming from USA, to me is a pleasent ride that worth to be investigated for any serous prog listner. Great and 4 stars easy.
