2 stars As a huge fan of FZ,RIO and weird music in general, I thought I'd give this album a try. It was not at all what I expected. The album is, in a word, pompous. The lyrics try to be unnaturally intelligent. It's like they took out a word list and chose all the most complicated sounding words for the album (remember when you did that in eigth grade to try to impress your teacher). Well, it makes sounds sound awkward and forced, and it puts huge divots in the flow of the album. To top it off, they take every single opportunity available to hit the 'jazz note.' This is makes for an interesting SONG, but when you rinse and repeat for an entire album, it's really quite boring...and the whole time, the album gives off the vibe "well if you dont get it, you're just not as smart as us, man." Sorry "man" I'll just go back to listening to my lowly FZ.
